The Romulan Stratagem
1995, Pocket Books, New York
The Enterprise crew is sent on a diplomatic mission to offer Eloh - a newly discovered world - membership into the Federation. When they arrive, they realise that the Elohsians have also been in talks with the Romulan Empire.
The writing style was a bit inconsistent, the plot bits were good, but the action scenes were poorly written. I liked the story - it was simple and linear. And the little aside with Ensign Ro was amusing.
