When a terrorist attack rocks Starfleet Academy, it's clear someone has a very serious--and very deadly--secret agenda.

The rules are simple: Draw a target. Track him down and "kill" him with a spork. Take your victim's target for your own. Oh, and make sure the player with your name doesn't get to you first. No safe zones. No time-outs. The game ends when only one player remains.
James T. Kirk is playing for fun. Leonard "Bones" McCoy is playing to get closer to a girl. But when a series of terrorist attacks rock the usually placid Starfleet Academy campus, it becomes clear that somebody is playing the game for real. Is it one of the visiting Varkolak, on Earth to attend an intergalactic medical conference? Or could it be a member of a super-secret society at the Academy dedicated to taking care of threats to the Federation, no matter what rules they have to break to do it? Find out in The Assassination Game , the fourth installment in Spotlight's exciting series for teens.

Good plot, but characterization leaves something to be desired. It leaned a bit too heavily on your knowing the characters from the show (which I don't).

Book Four of the Starfleet Academy series, this one involves a social strategy/stealth game called "Assassination" played by the cadets while Starfleet entertains a visit from a war-like, wolf-like humanoid race. While this was a fun book and made me want to read more of the series, the purist in me found the scope of the plot to be too expansive and would've made the crew all well-known heroes by the time the movie's time period came around. And that just wasn't the case. Besides that little fact, this was a very enjoyable book.
