Jane Austen Star Trek is pretty much everything you need to know. Humor, drama, telepathy and genetics combined in a tale where Mr. Darcy, one of the few Vulcans* who survives the destruction of his home planet, sets off to save his culture.
Lord does an amazing job of what she set out to accomplish, but it's not quite what I wanted. She says a lot of wry things about gender, but more for laughs than criticism. This is where I get heavy on spoilers. These aren't the only things that got on my nerves (for instance, the cover....), but I don't want to spend the rest of my day typing.
Still, an amazing read. Masterfully constructed. Highly recommend.
*Not actually a Vulcan, but lack of pointy ears aside, totally a Vulcan.
