In an isolated Star Fleet research lab, something has broken loose. Something that hungers…Bloodthirst was the 37th book of Pocket Books's numbered series of Star Trek novels, written by J.M. Dillard. The novel uses elements of classic horror stories in creating a tale of a vampire-like sickness in the Star Trek universe.

Summary[edit | edit source]

A class one medical emergency summons the Enterprise to the Federation Outpost Tanis. There, a grisly surprise awaits them. Two of the lab's three researchers are dead, their bodies almost entirely drained of blood. There are no clues. No records of their research. No remnants of their work.
There is only the outpost's sole survivor, Doctor Jeffrey Adams. A man with a secret that will rock the very foundations of Starfleet… and a terrible, all-consuming hunger that will bring death to the crew of the Starship Enterprise.
