In which Star Trek novel did Kirk step on a venomous creature? The creature may be known as a "Judas Boot"?

    Are you sure he only stepped on it and he didn't kiss it or something??

I don't know about stepping on a venomous creature, but in the novel First Frontier (book 75) Cpt. Kirk has been stung by a "hairy thrill killer scorpion (I believe it was called)." There was no cure but, Dr. McCoy can keep treating the symptoms until the poison finally wears off.

  • No, but thank you for the response.

  • I think the setting was a diplomatic conference, and Kirk needed to walk to the conference secretly, for some reason.

  • Drat and I've read nearly all of them. Just can't seem to place that one.
