A reporter who wants to expose the inner-happennings of a Federation Starship (and ends up as yet-another-conquest for Capt. Kirk), a computer that believes itself more intelligent than Mr. Spock (ha!), all framed into the dilemma of what to do with a Star that has achieved sentience...
A very interesting flirt with the meaning of consciousness from Mr. Bear, who after this continued his affair with the concept (pick up his other novels if you don't believe me). Since he was writing inside the frame of an established franchise, the characters are somewhat stifled; yet remain believable. This is one of the nicer Star Trek novels from the original era.

An awesome, sentient force of protostars- Corona- has taken control of a stranded team of Vulcan scientists. The Enterprise has come on a rescue mission, with a female reporter and a new computer that can override Kirk's command. The rescuers must save themselves and the entire Universe- before Corona unleashes a Big Bang.
