Love the content but bad editing nearly spoilt this. Multiple takes were left in and sometimes words were interrupted randomly.

still enjoyed it though

Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

very similar plot to an episode of red dwarf, and not even a good episode. I was disappointed by how the story developed. I want the book I hoped it would be

The cast was great even if the story wasn't the best. Reminded me of a children's story.

Ship's counsellor Deanna Troi mysteriously falls ill...and dies. But her death marks the start of an incredible adventure for Commander Riker - an adventure that takes him across time, pits him against one of his closest friends, and forces him to choose between Starfleet's strictest rule and the one he calls Imzadi. Read by Jonathan Frakes, and enhanced with sound effects!

this would have been more enjoyable but the recording sounds like it's been recorded with a toaster. add to this the echo and sound effects is was almost unlistenable. Jonathan frakes is enjoyable but his masculine voice did not fit with the female characters. I found myself being confused as to who was speaking.

David Mitchell, who you may know for his inappropriate anger on every TV panel show except Never Mind the Buzzcocks, his look of permanent discomfort on C4 sex comedy Peep Show, his online commenter-baiting in The Observer or just for wearing a stick-on moustache in That Mitchell and Webb Look, has written a book about his life.

Everything I'd hoped it would be and more. David Mitchell's angry logic is throughout this honestly told autobiography.
