A mysterious music holds the clues that could save an alien race!Uhura's Song was the 21st novel in Pocket Books' numbered series of Star Trek: The Original Series books, and was written by Janet Kagan.



Years ago, Lt. Uhura befriended a diplomat from Eeiauo, the land of graceful, cat-like beings. The two women exchanged forbidden songs and promised never to reveal their secret.
Now the Enterprise is orbiting Eeiauo in a desperate race to save the inhabitants before a deadly plague destroys them. Uhura's secret songs may hold the key to a cure - but the clues are veiled in layers of mystery.
The plague is killing Humans, threatening other planets—and Kirk must crack the code before the Enterprise succumbs!

The Eeiauoans were mentioned again in DS9 novel: Devil in the Sky, briefly, as participants in pornography that Nog owned.

The cover image shows the refit Enterprise from the Star Trek movie era, even though the contents and other timeline materials place this story years before that ship design was put into use. The Starfleet uniforms on the cover do agree with the novel taking place in the 2260s era, although Spock's patch seems to be from a later design.
