Summary

A novel by Star Trek's creator Gene Roddenberry - based on the screenplay by Harold Livingston and story by Alan Dean Foster. 

The human adventure is just beginning.

The writer-producer who created Mr. Spock and all the other Star Trek characters - who invented the Starship Enterprise, who gave the show its look, its ideals - puts it all together again here in his first Star Trek novel! 

Their historic five-year mission is over. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, and all the crew have scattered to other jobs or other lives. Now, they are back together again on a fabulously refitted USS Enterprise as an incredibly destructive power threatens earth and the human race.

©1979 Gene Roddenberry (P)2019 Simon & Schuster Audio

Wonderful adaptation

Really enjoyed this audio adaptation of the original novel of Star Trek The Motion Picture. It brought out a depth to the story and the relationships. I hope it's not the last adaptation of a movie or original series novel produced. Well done to all involved and thank you

Star Trek as it was meant to be...by the creator.

This is Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek. Pure and (not so) simple. Everything else is fan fiction. Beautiful.

Star Trek TMP

It was a beautiful movie. A beautiful novel. And very well performed in this audiobook. I love the detail that is in the book versus what was in the movie. Any fan of Star Trek absolutely needs to read and or listen to this audiobook.

Feels very dated, and not in a good way

The story takes a long time to build, including Kirk's hesitations. Weak on female characters.
