Summary

While searching for the U.S.S. Huxley, a starship missing for over 10 years, the Enterprise stumbles over a forgotten colony of humans on a planet called Rampart - a world where fiction, speculation, and works of the imagination are considered the ultimate crime. A survey team from the planet beams on board the Enterprise to search for "contraband" materials - and suddenly the crew find themselves plunged into the middle of a murderous civil war between a determined band of rebels and the planet's ruthless mind police. A civil war whose outcome will determine not only the future of the planet, but the life of Captain Jean-Luc Picard as well.

Not really that exciting more interesting.

Jonathan Frakes does a good job of narating this complex story.
I had to listen twice to really get the gist of the thing.
Not really my cup of tea.

Really captures Next Generation Season 1

This was not a bad story really. It captures the feeling of an early episode of Star Trek the Next Generation (TNG). Some people really like the stories of that era. I don't personally so I didnt love this book but I wont call it bad as it clearly is trying to capture the feel of early TNG. It is entertaining enough and I suspect there are people who would love this.

I think the voice acting is reasonably good with some good voice work for different characters. Jonathan Frakes is doing a good job. However, the audio quality isn't great. There is a background static that can be distracting and some sound effects that are obnoxiously loud drowning out some dialog. That is a real shame for the story and listeners.

a guaranteed good listen

Always enjoy the Star Trek novels. I like how Frakes can voice all the characters without overdoing, for example example, Captain Picard's British accent, but we sense the same authority and elegance from the actor we know.

Just not really very good

Jonathan Frakes is not a voice actor, and his voice is too distinctive and distracting when he is (poorly) imitating voices that are so well-known. It's a nice voice, just not one that works in this situation in my opinion.

And this is one of the lesser attempts at STNG fiction. Surprisingly, Tim Russ is a good narrator who subtly imitates the characters' voices. I'm listening to Genesis Wave and although it's not great literature it is enjoyable.
