Part of the Star Trek: The Original Series Series and Star Trek Classic ( Series). Diane Duane is probably the best writer to ever do a Star Trek novel, mostly because she understands literary science fiction, not just the television/movie genre. The two are completely different animals, and most Star Trek fiction fails because of a lack of this basic understanding.

Pocket Books has consistently published books based on Star Trek: The Original Series from 1981 until 2016, with 2008 being the only year without a new release. No new Original Series novels have been announced since The Face of the Unknown in December 2016.

STAR TREK BOOK LIST - The Original Series. Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

It is the twenty-third century. On the planet Vulcan, a crisis of unprecedented proportion has caused the convocation of the planet's ruling council -- and summoned the U.S.S. Enterprise? from halfway across the galaxy to bring Vulcan's most famous son home in its hour of need.

As Commander Spock, his father, Sarek, and Captain James T. Kirk struggle to preserve Vulcan's future, the planet's innermost secrets are laid before us, from its beginnings millions of years ago to its savage prehistory, from merciless tribal warfare to medieval court intrigue, from the exploration of space to the development of o'thia -- the ruling ethic of logic. And Spock -- torn between his duty to Starfleet and the unbreakable ties that bind him to Vulcan -- must reconcile both his own inner conflict and the external dilemma his planet faces...lest the Federation itself be ripped asunder.

In "Spock's World", Diane Duane follows the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise as they travel to Vulcan to give testimony in a public referendum on Vulcan withdrawal from the United Federation of Planets. Duane takes advantage of the setting to explore Vulcan's history and culture, building on what screenwriter Theodore Sturgeon depicted in the episode "Amok Time" from the original series. Duane begins Vulcan's history with planetary formation, though the solar flare that catastrophically altered its climate from lush jungle to blasted desert, into the wars that plagued the Vulcan people, and Surak's teachings that saved them from themselves. While many parts of Duane's story would later be retconned, such as the details of human first contact with the Vulcans as depicted eight years later in "Star Trek: First Contact", the overall novel captures the tone and characterization of "The Original Series" despite its setting shortly after "The Motion Picture" in 2275. Other inconsistencies include Duane referencing her other series about the Romulans, who she calls the Rihannsu, in this book as well as referring to the Klingon homeworld as Klinzhai and giving Dr. Leonard McCoy's middle initial as "E." instead of "H." The reader can overlook much of this as it was only with "The Next Generation" that the producers of "Star Trek" began to codify the canon. Even avid Trekkers will find plenty to enjoy in this story, both in its history of Vulcan and Duane's portrayal of the political intrigue occurring on modern Vulcan.

It has been several years since I've read any books about the Star Trek universe, though I'm not sure why since I have been a Treker since it came to tv when I was a kid. It changed how I saw the world, the stars and the future. This book is filled with familiar characters but would hold anyone's attention who had only a cursory familiarity with this universe. For those of us who have more than that it beautifully expands that universe. Excellent read!

How do I love this novel? Let me count the ways. It’s basic premise is that Vulcan is considering withdrawing from the Federation, thereby recalling all its resources and effectively isolating or exiling its population. But since they are such a civilized people, they decide to put humanity on trial first to prove that men are either 1) imitative monkey-barbarians who need to be protected from Vulcan influence, or 2) war-like imperial barbarians too depraved to be associated with. Several speakers stand up to make arguments before or against, including Spock's father, Ambassador Sarek. But what makes this book so truly fantastic is Dr. McCoy. He effectively pwns the entire Vulcan race, and he does so by being a psychoanalytically manipulative bastard. All three main characters - Kirk, Spock, and McCoy - are wonderful. Easily in my top three favorite Star Trek books.

Also: You should know that, like most of Diane Duane's Star Trek books, this novel has a two-fold approach. It alternates between chapters in the present and from an ancient past. You may be tempted to skip these unknown passages, but DON’T. They build a masterful answer to the following question: why, if Vulcans are so devoted to the concept of infinite diversity, are they so afraid of the Other – and of themselves?

The author is steeped in science, astrophysics
, biology, linguistics and psychology.

It was particularly enjoyable t read about the history of Vulcan, from planetary formation, the beginning of intel event life and the life and early influence of Surak.

A MUST read for and Fan of the original series and perhaps any Trek fan at large.

This is one of my favorite books on Spocks fascinating world.

To be honest, I read this books many, many, many years ago. But I couldn't find a copy by Audible.com (my prefered way of "reading"), so i bought this book (my first e-read to my new GalaxyIII phone & Note tablet) and have fallen in love with the written word again.
Diane Duane's novel sets forth a sweeping history of the planet Vulcan and establishes a rock solid foundation for all future Trek novelists to build upon.
Excellent writting, and narative, with a such an easy use of long established, and beloved Trek characters and fimiliars one would think she had grown with them.
And yet, differing from most Trek stories, there isn't even one Phaser fired in anger.
This is truly the type of novel Gene Roddenberry would have approved of in promoting his dream of humanities future.
Buy this and enjoy ... then you'll truly be able to "Live Long and Prosper."

I have read and re-read Spock's World at least a dozen times since its original publication decades ago. Diane Duane has always been one of the more fearless and inspired writers of these Trek novels, happily adding her own well-drawn characters and plotlines into the mix and refusing to tiptoe around "canonical" people and places in its universe. Here she attempts nothing less than a complete history of Vulcan, and the result is both captivating and resonant. On this particular occasion I was struck by the similarities between the Vulcan secession plot and the recent "Brexit" difficulties our own world is undergoing, as well as the related resurfacing of xenophobia and isolationism in other nations across the globe. One hopes it will not take the stamina of a Vulcan, or the wisdom of a Surak, to put us back on the path of celebrating diversity rather than fearing it.
I read the hard cover version a few years ago, so I already knew this was a great book. I just wanted to read it again. It gives some background on the Vulcan race which you don't get in the series or in the movies. I thought it was very entertaining. Well worth reading more than once.
