An exhilarating thriller from best-selling author Dayton Ward set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation, following Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew as they explore the previously uncharted and dangerous Odyssean Pass.
Surveying a nebula as part of their continuing exploration of the previously uncharted Odyssean Pass, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the starship Enterprise encounter a rogue planet. Life signs are detected on the barren world's surface, and then a garbled message is received: a partial warning to stay away at all costs. Determined to render assistance, Picard dispatches Commander Worf and an away team to investigate, but their shuttlecraft is forced to make an emergency landing on the surface - moments before all contact is lost and the planet completely disappears.
Worf and his team learn that this mysterious world is locked into an unending succession of random jumps between dimensions, the result of an ambitious experiment gone awry. The Enterprise crew members and the alien scientists who created the technology behind this astonishing feat find themselves trapped, powerless to break the cycle. Meanwhile, as the planet continues to fade in and out of various planes of existence, other parties have taken notice....

Wow wow and wow really enjoyed this. Great story well read by Peter.
This has opened up another arc if they wish to follow it 10/10. A good listen or read
This book isn't flashy or dramatic but it is a really enjoyable listen for a TNG fan. We've got the scanning of phase variances and reconfiguring of photon torpedoes and re routing of power from the rear deflectors - a typical Star Trek story, with all my favorite characters behaving just as one would expect. It was like curling up in front of a fire on a cold night. With hot chocolate. And the narrator was spot on, I could always tell who was speaking, and he got the cadences and accents down very well.
It does bear mentioning that you should pay attention to the chapter headings - I sometimes let those flow over me, but I realized they were key to knowing where/when you are in the dimensional shift.
All around enjoyable, solid 4 star listen. I recommend to other fans!
"More Unabridged Star Trek TNG!"
Good Story but honestly, I would buy a Star Trek TNG book even if it was unanimously panned by critics. (Please Audible, bring more UNABRIDGED Star Trek books. I'm listening to Hell's Heart now and I don't see any other unabridged TNG books to listen to after I'm done.) Anyways, the story itself is interesting if not particularly exciting. still, it's great beaming back into the prime universe during the Star Trek TNG era.
"Just like a mediocre episode"
I have read over 100 Star trek books this is one is ranked somewhere in the bottom 5.
"It's a good Segway to a sequel"
Really slow and uneventful, more about characters talking to each other abt how they feel abt the action than the action itself.
I really enjoyed this story. It's great to have new Star Trek audio books. The narrator did a great job. I recommend this to sci fi fans. Hi John and Sarah.
Spoiler alert!! This plot is just a repeat of the same old story of Enterprises from different dimensions encountering each other. The author threw in some Romulans, but they really didn't add that much to the story. There were no major plot twists or turns. I kept hoping that something exciting would happen. And before I knew it, everyone returned to their own dimension and the story was over. The beings on the planet were super boring too. I kept hoping that they were up to something sinister and secretive, masquerading as gentle, but clueless beings. But nope. They were actually just pretty clueless aliens.
I will say that the narration was outstanding. The narrator really captured the way they sounded in TNG. He can mimic so many different voices. However, I think the overall presentation was limited by the pretty bad plot.
"as usual Dayton and Robert delivered"
would've loved to have seen this adapted for the small screen. great storytelling as always.
"Overall not too bad"
Just finished. The narration was good. But the first half of the story was not s good as the second half. It was quite predictable at the beginning. But, it got better. If you are a fan you will enjoy this book. Lots of fan service and nostalgic moments.
"A Big, Dull Dud!"
First, I love that Audible is offering unabridged STAR TREK. That said, wow this book was disappointing. The set up was great. The crew of Enterprise E encounter their alternate universe counterparts on the Enterprise D. Seemed cool, but the book never chose to do anything interesting. I love Dayton Ward and Robert Petkoff. But this book is not a good representation of their efforts. Lots of missed opportunities. Skip this book.
"Fun addition to the Star Trek adventures"
Thrilling adventure with its touching moments and high action. Multi dimensional issues allow the staff of the Enterprise to see what could be and what could have been.
