Official A Choice of Catastrophes blurb
 
For some reason Pocket has skipped Vanguard: Declassified and Cast No Shadow, and released their blurb for A Choice of Catastrophes.
Here it is:
Quote:

The U.S.S. Enterprise, under the command of Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu, is returning from a mission to deliver medical supplies to Deep Space Station C-15, one of Starfleet's most distant installations. All is routine until the Enterprise comes within a light-year of the planet Mu Arigulon, when the ship is suddenly thrown from warp and suffers a momentary power cut, having run aground on a spatial distortion not revealed in previous scans of the system. When the pride of Starfleet hits another, much worse distortion, Dr. Leonard McCoy has his hands full caring for officers who have suddenly fallen into comas for no apparent reason. The Enterprise medical team soon discovers that the dying officers are espers—humans with a rare and abnormal level of telepathic and psychic ability. With no choice but to link to the officers' minds in order to come to their aid, McCoy is plunged into a nightmarish dream-world . . . with the end result being nothing short of the possible destruction of the Enterprise and all aboard her. . . .
I'm a big McCoy and Sulu fan, so this sounds great to me.

What time period is this set? Within the 5 year mission?

Not quite. They wish they had, though. Well, maybe not Spock. The others, though, come pretty close to regretting they left the ship.

Straight in the middle of the 5YM, yes. Early-to-mid 2268, in fact.

Definitely not in a bowling alley. They're doing a bit of exploring off-ship, but there's Trouble waiting for them. See our Unreality SF interview from last year; the first half includes some more information about the novel.

I love how kirk often almost empties the larder of senior officers for his landing parties.

Something about being more willing to risk it all on the unknown frontier I guess.

One suspects Kirk is the main reason it was decided Captains do NOT go on Landing Parties....

McCoy had everyone but Kirk to assist him in Doctor's Orders though(which was a fun book, had very interesting aliens).
