Set after the last 2 episodes of the 1st season & the 1st 2 of the 2nd (so, lots of spoilers for City on the Edge of Forever, Operation Annihilate, Amok Time & Who Mourns for Adonais?), this novel begins 1 week later. No connection in plot or theme to In the Hands of Others.
Summary from the publisher: ""Set early in season two, Kirk and Chekov go undercover to conduct negotiations on Castor, a planet where a marriage is formed by a triad of two males (‘firsts’ and ‘seconds’ who are considered the 'triad base') and completed by females who come and go. While Kirk's been working on his cover for two years, the newly appointed Chekov is a sudden replacement who doesn't know the language or the customs of the very people he's trying to fool... Note: Although this novel deals with adult situations, it is not slash."
