Power Hungry
Howard Weinstein

Sent to deliver emergency famine relief to the planet Thiopa — the Federation’s only allies in a critically important sector of space — the crew finds a brutal dictatorship — one more concerned with preserving its own powers than protecting its citizens, or the world they all share. Captain Picard is hesitant about turning over the supplies to the corrupt government: he fears they may never reach their intended destination. But can he convince the ruling council to change their ways, before it is too late — for the government, and Thiopa itself?

For all that this was a fairly typical Trek adventure, I quite enjoyed it. There was a little personal development in there, the planetary politics were fairly interesting and the humour with the ambassador was fairly typical of the genre’s lighter moments.
