Fatal Error is the second installment in the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series, written by Keith R.A. DeCandido and published in September 2000. In 2002 it was reprinted in the paperback omnibus Have Tech, Will Travel.

Publisher's descriptionEdit

For centuries, the planet Eerlik has had a thriving civilization, completely run, maintained, and administered by a giant sentient computer. But now that computer is breaking down and the desperate inhabitants are helpless to repair the damage. Only the crew of the U.S.S. da Vinci, accompanied by Geordi La Forge, can hope to fix the massive computer before the Eerlikkan society collapses entirely. Their mission grows more dangerous, however, when they discover evidence of sabotage -- and learn firsthand that hostile forces will do whatever it takes to stop Gold and his crew from saving the imperiled planet!
