Teaser Tuesday - Star Trek: Avenger

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!

This week we have something a little different from the last few weeks, in that I've been reading a Star Trek novel that my mom loaned me.  I haven't read any Trek novels for years, so this has been kinda fun, as "Avenger" brings together Kirk, Spock, and some of the crew of the ST:TNG, working together to save the Federation from a deadly virus that is sweeping through the inhabited star systems, infecting all forms of plant life and causing massive breakdowns in the food supply, causing starvation and devastation throughout the Federation and beyond.

 The Tease:
 ""You realize you are describing the collapse of the Federation," Spock said.
Completely without emotion, Srell replied, "Unless a cure for the virogen is found and the food supply protected, the collapse of the Federation is a certainty.""
 -Star Trek: Avenger, by William Shatner
(with Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens)
