You can definitely tell who has nothing else to do on a Sunday night, huh? This one should prove more of a challenge:

Sagan nodded, then resumed scanning the horizon and the distant, snow-bedecked steepness of Mount Maxwell. "The amount of energy you'll need just to cool down the atmosphere is incredible. The number of megajoules needed must be--"

"Billions and billions," Seyetik said with a smirk.

Sagan sighed. "I never, ever said that. Why does everyone feel obliged to make that same pathetic joke every time they talk to me?"


That's fantastic. Now I'll have to read the rest of that book...someday...

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that this book is : Assignment: Earth.

^ When I read Sagan, it just made click.

"Ambassador Zarv," Kirk said. The Tellarite seemed an unlikely choice for negotiation of any type. He was brusque, rude and going out of his way to be obnoxious. "Welcome aboard the starship Enterprise."
"I know what this hunk of tin is!" The transporter technician stiffened. Kirk bit back a smile. Scotty had his engineering section imbued with the same love of the enterprise that he had. If Scotty had heard the Enterprise referred to as a "hunk of tin," he'd have heaved the ambassador back into the transporter and dispersed the beam in empty space.

Mutiny On The Enterprise?

Correct.

Yay!

"Maybe history derailed cannot be set back on course, and my crew and I have been exerting ourselves for nothing. Maybe I, captain without a ship, leader with no one to lead, deserve to be caught between two of the most impervious females, two of the most immovable objects, in the galaxy."

This shouldn't take long.

Wow, I thought this would be a quick and easy one.

Here's a hint: the author posts here at TrekBBS, but not as often as, say, KRAD.

Nope and nope.

Hint: It's an older book, published in the 1980s, and one of the early "giant" novels.
