Summary

After the end of the Enterprise™'s five-year mission, Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy struggle to establish new lives apart from one another and the starship. The newly promoted Admiral Kirk is placed in charge of a specially created Starfleet division and attempts to defuse a critical hostage situation; Mr. Spock, who, in the midst of a teaching assignment on Vulcan, finds the one thing he least expected; and Dr. McCoy, whose unerring instinct for trouble lands him smack in the middle of an incident that could trigger an interstellar bloodbath.

an amusing diversion, but not a quality one

tarot meets vulcan history in a tale that has more in common with Harry potter than star trek. be warned that the nimoy parts are short clumsy bolt-ons added presumably for the sellability of the nimoy name alone.

but if you need a star trek fix and aren't fussy this'll do.

Adapted does not mean abridged!!

I read this book many years ago and it became a firm favourite of mine. This audio version does not do it justice. It has been cut to pieces. There was meant to be chapters about Kirk settling in as Admiral, Spock meant a girl and became engaged, Riley had his own story too. All cut for no good reason. Disappointing

Unexpected

I think this is the story prior to one of the Star Trek movies. I didn't expect that it will sustain my interest up to the end of the story. The plot is simple, but interesting.

I want to listen to more Star Trek books by Dillard. I also like Nimoy and Doohan's narrations.

The wisely "lost years"

Spock was great. Scotty narrating not so much. not the best from this author, by far.

It was okay, in short.

Like any other Star Trek story, predictable without any consequences. Almost a waste of time.

abridged is an understatement

if I hadn't gotten this for $4 there would have been no way I'd spend good money on this.
