Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

Treaty's Law is a Star Trek: The Original Series novel by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch. It was published in October 1997, the 81st book in Pocket Books' series of numbered TOS novels and the fourth book in the Day of Honor miniseries.


The Day of Honor is celebrated throughout the Klingon Empire. But every tradition had to begin somewhere…
Signi Beta is an M-class planet ideal for farming. The Federation wants Signi Beta, but the Klingon Empire has the stronger claim. Captain Kirk hates to lose the planet, especially to his old adversary, Commander Kor. Their mutual antagonism turns into an uneasy alliance, however, when yet another alien fleet attacks both the Klingons and the USS Enterprise. Now Kirk and Kor must rely on each other—or none of them may survive to wage their war again.
