Re: TOS: Spock Must Die! by James Blish [SPOILERS]

Spock Must Die! is pretty good for what it is - an early Trek book that predates most of the canon we're familiar with. The Klingons taking out the Organians does seem a bit farfetched, but in all honesty, there are plenty of ways to handwave that away. I really like the idea of the Klingons locking the Organians away, because it explains why they never show up again, especially when the Federation and Klingons have that war in DS9 season 5.
