    A new ship, a new crew, a new mission! All four exciting New Frontier adventures are captured here in one program! The newly refit Ambassador-class Starship Excalibur is sent to Secter 221-G, which was once ruled by the vicious Thallonians but has now descended into chaos. Captain Calhoun and his crew - including some old friends from The Next Generation - must boldly go where no one has gone before!

    Overall

    Having read some of the later chapters of the New Frontier series, I enjoyed the origins of Calhoun. The characters came to life here and I thoroughly enjoyed the little twist at the end.

    My only complaints, and why I had to give this only three stars is the narration was done in a peculiarly halting pattern. Speaking - like - a - parody - of - James - Kirk. In addition, the sound track and sound effects were much too loud and had me constantly adjusting volume to avoid the loud effects and to hear the narration which would then be too quiet.

    I will be more cautious and try to avoid other titles produced in the same manner.

    Conclusion: good story, but overwhelmed by the post-production.
