Of course, I think that next to the German version of Mission to Horatius
, the original "Orange" cover could be in the running for weirdest cover with those black things and stripes throughout the picture. What were they suppose to be, a scale?
Also, Dimesdan, Spock Must Die
was the second original Star Trek novel. The first was Mack Reynolds 1967 Whitman novel Mission To Horatius
(although that was aimed at the Young Adult Market, so Spock Must Die
could be considered the first Adult Star Trek novel).
