Hard Crash is the third installment in the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series, written by Christie Golden and published in October 2000. In 2002 it was reprinted in the paperback omnibus Have Tech, Will Travel.

Publisher's description[]

An alien starship of unknown origin has crashed into a planet inhabited by a large and populous civilization. Accompanied by Geordi La Forge, temporarily on loan from the Starship Enterprise, the S.C.E. investigates the mysterious vessel, only to discover that the ship was not nearly as damaged as it first seemed. Now the berserk ship, which seems to possess its own life and intelligence, is on a rampage across the surface of the planet, and Captain Gold and his crew face the awesome challenge of trying to stop a starship gone insane!
