Summary

Once a violent, primitive race, Vulcans renounced their warlike nature for logic. But a small faction established the Romulan Empire, where the old Vulcan way flourished. Now, deep in Romulan territory, an underground movement to reunite two worlds of common ancestry is under way - a reunion some have waited a lifetime to see and others would give their lives to stop. Continuing the mission he began in Unification, Starfleet Ambassador Spock endeavors to impart the logic of the Vulcans to a small band of Romulans. But Spock and his students are taken hostage. Fearful that Spock's knowledge of Federation security will fall into enemy hands, Starfleet dispatches the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D, and Jean-Luc Picard, to secure the hostages' release. Ambassador McCoy - more than 140 years old - is brought in to consult on the negotiations. Their situation is further complicated when Captain Montgomery Scott confiscates an out-of-service starship and effects his own daring rescue of Spock. Picard must now find a way to preserve the Federation's security and prevent a war while dealing with deadly Romulan politics that threaten his ship, his crew, and the Federation.

A Top Notch Performance From Jonathan Frakes!

The performance is top notch in this book, and there is lots of action. A must listen!

It's okay

It's a descent story, but not one of the best Star Trek novels I've read (or heard). Be prepared for some entertaining reading from Jonathan Frakes (Will Riker from Next Gen). This book is worth getting just to hear him do Captain Picard?s voice.

Great quick Star Trek story.

Fun little story, with a familiar voice in Jonathan Frakes, taking you through an adventure with characters from the Original Series and The Next Generation. The only thing I would want is more or another project like it to come along.

Jonathan Frakes gives an excellent performance

the story was excellent. Jonathan Frakes gives an excellent voice performance. his Picard and Scotty in particular are rather convincing. This is one of those books that are written well enough that when you remember it you confuse whether you've heard it as a book or watch it as a movie.
