"Big Star Trek story, not well condensed"
I read this story many years ago, and liked the character development, rich story line, and intricate plot. Well, it didn't translate into a 90 min script, and just lumped together a bunch of unlikely alien features that made an unremarkable story. The narration was great, though, Scotty (Doohan?).
"A great story & performance"
I loved the story. The audio story was exiting in the tradition of Star Trek.
"Without James Doohan this book would fail flat!"
James Doohan made this great! This was my 3rd time reading it. The alien was - poor.
"One of the best original ST"
I have read most of the original Star Trek novels and this is truly one of the most entertaining .......Rob PZ
"Interesting story, but too abridged!"
James Doohan is a great narrator, but so much of the plot was cut. Chekhov and Sulu's entire subplot was dropped! A reare instance where I recommend reading the paper copy!
It is such a treat to listen to James Doohan - as charming a performer as ever in this narration. It is a good story and very professionally done. It is true to all the original characters and has a very original feel to it. Highly recommended to all Star Trek fans, and even if you only sort of liked the show - It really is fun to listen to.
