Star Empire is the Federation's most powerful new weapon -- a dreadnought, first in a class of super-starships -- capable of outgunning a dozen Klingon cruisers, or subduing a galaxy.
On the eve of her maiden voyage, Star Empire is stolen by terrorists who demand a rendezvous with the Starship Enterprise -- and with Lieutenant Piper, stationed aboard Kirk's ship on her first training cruise. Now Piper must discover why her friends from Starfleet are among the terrorists...and why they insist the ship was stolen not to attack the Federation -- but to save it!

Wonderful book, introduces a new crew
I named my daughter after the quite competent Lt Piper. Bring together a new crew with dynamics similar to the original crew. A doctor, an engineer and captain, each with a twist, and a unique way to look at the Kobayashi Maru test.
Vulcans who don’t act like vulcans, and Mary Sue lives.
If you like the idea of libertarian vulcans (never mind the “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few, or the one”) and a lead character that is absolutely a Mary Sue, then this is the book for you. Painful, and the sequal is even more so.
