Book Description

1 Jun 1994 Star Trek
More than a year has passed since the end of the Enterprise's legendary five-year mission, and Kirk and his crew have settled into their new, separate assignments. But Sulu and Chekov soon find themselves framed for murder and treason, and the two officers are forced to go into hiding. Admiral Kirk and Lt. Uhura frantically search for evidence to prove Sulu and Chekov innocent and uncover a plot that threatens the very foundations of Starfleet. The web of conspiracy is woven tighter as the real culprits and Federation agents close in on the fugitives. Unsure of whom to trust and with time running out, the former U.S.S. Enterprise shipmates must once again rely on each other to find the truth and prevent the Federation from facing utter destruction.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
Pocket Books continue their series of novels based on Classic Star Trek with #70: Traitor Winds by L.A. Graf.
This novel is one of the books that span the gap between the end of the original series 5 year mission and Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Although the cover lists it as 'The incredible third book...' it is, chronologically, the second in the saga continuing right after the events of 'The Lost Years' by J.M. Dillard and coming way before the 'second' book, 'A Flag Full Of Stars' by Brad Ferguson.
Following on from the first book, the Enterprise crew have drifted apart, each taking temporary jobs on Earth and hoping to rejoin Kirk when the Enterprise finishes its refit. While Kirk continues his job as a trouble-shooter with Lori Ciana, Uhura teaches at the Academy, Sulu is a Starfleet test pilot, Scotty is overseeing the refit and Chekov enrols in Starfleet Security.
Chekov is asked by Mark Piper (from 'Where No Man Has Gone Before') to help in on a new project involving Klingon weaponry. When Piper reveals the real reason why he wanted Chekov on the project a shadowy conspiracy involving classified technology, murder and corruption is revealed.
Chekov is framed for a murder and at the same time Sulu is accused of stealing a new type of shuttle, The Wraith, which uses a cloaking device. With evidence firmly in place to discredit the two officers they both find themselves on the run and trapped on a planet with Starfleet Security closing in.
Uhura and McCoy both try to help but with the conspirators always one step ahead, Kirk tied up in a diplomatic conference and more murders the situation looks grim indeed.
Traitor Winds actually exceeds expectations and is a better read than 'The Lost Years'.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite book in the Lost Years series 4 Sep 2001
By Joshua Claassen - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is my favorite in the Lost Years series for one simple reason: Dr. Leonard H. McCoy. Before other reviewers go to scoffing and rating this one unhelpful, let me explain why.
The scenes in which he treats a wounded Chekov for a broken arm show me so clearly what all doctors should strive for as an ideal: not just "bedside manner" which can be put on and taken off like a coat, but actual _compassion_ for their patients, that they left me breathless and dazed with wonder at the enormity of the revelation. L. A. Graf should be a lecturer (or is that lecturers?) at every medical internship school in the country. At the very least, this book should be required reading for all surgical students. (Probably a lttle unrealistic, I know, but where there is life, there is hope.)

5.0 out of 5 stars To heck with 10!! This book is an 11!!! 28 April 1998
By Roxanne Kean - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been a Trek fan since day one and have read many of the published stories, but none of the writer's have captured the original Trek series as well as L.A. Graf.

Most stories concentrate on Kirk-Spock-McCoy, and while there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, the other characters are just as interesting, and I adore the closeness of the Uhura-Sulu-Chekov triology just as much!

Traitor Winds leaves you breathless! It would have made an excellent movie! It has action, mystery, and you won't--you CAN'T put the book down once you start reading.

And JOY JOY--all the other L.A. Graf books are just as terrific!! If you read one, you will drool until you read them all! I've heard another one is in the works---put me on the list to buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-read for any Chekov fan 9 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is by far the best of the Lost Years books. It kept me on the edge of my seat. A fantastic example of great sci fi / adventure writing and with conspiracy intricately woven throughout the plot, it is an excellent book that even non-trekkers could enjoy. Also, like so many other L. A. Graf books, it focuses on the Chekov, Sulu, and Uhura group instead of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy (that's not to imply that we don't love them too!) so it makes for a refreshing change of pace. My advice to readers everywhere is this: DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars L.A. Graf is AWESOME! 19 Feb 2000
By Liane Jablonski - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I absolutely love this book, and rank it in my top three favorites! It, and other books by L.A. Graf are great in their Chekov material. My favorite phrase in reference to this author is this: "The only author that can write Chekov." Sooooo, for all you people that are sick of Chekov's two-syllable lines(Yes, sir. No, sir.), this is an awesome book and author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb story focussing on second-tier characters. 10 Jan 2006
By James Yanni - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a marvellous story, well-conceived and well-executed, focussing on Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov. Not for fans of the usual "big three" of Star Trek; Kirk and McCoy make only cameo apprearences, (as do Scotty, M'Benga, Chapel, and Rand) and Spock makes none at all, but for anyone who enjoys seeing the lower-ranking characters get a bit of developement, this book is delightful.
