How does the novelization compare to the script?
Novelization?
The TMP novelization, I'd assume. And there are several concepts which leaked into Roddenberry's later novel, including the notion of Spock telepathically linking with Kirk while kneeling before the High Masters on Vulcan (in the very opening of the script), etc.

That particular one didn't make it into the final film, and it's clear that Gene decided to reuse several of them when writing the book.
He also used some of the transporter accident description as well.
