Ah, I see she got a second one in after Roddenberry had passed away. The others were written after the series was off the air.
Isn't the story that her dedication of Ghost Ship to someone who served in the Marine Corps was a point of contention between her and Roddenberry? Roddenberry wanted it cut because he felt that it glorified the military, Carey was adamant that an author's dedication is a private thing. That was her last Star Trek book until after Roddenberry's death, as I recall.
If that story is true I think it's kind of lame on Roddenberry's part. The Marine she dedicated the book to was her father. She should have been able to dedicate a book to her father and if she wanted to mention his being a Marine, well, why the hell not?

As far as the book itself goes, that is one I give Carey a 100% pass on for the characters being so off since it was written before the series aired.
