This book focuses on two planets who have to team with each other to survive. The problem is, they both want to see each other destroyed. And a mysterious enemy is interfering with the Enterprise's peace mission. It's a decent read, just not the most memorable of the series. It's trying a bit too hard in my opinion to push the environmental issue. That's important, but it didn't make for a great read.
Another excellent novel by Weinstein. Socially relevant and written during the 1990's concern over global warming, endangered species, overpopulation, food shortages, etc. Takes place between 2 planets who must make peace between each other to survive.
