Eighteen years ago the Starship Enterprise thwarted an alien invasion from another universe, and Captain Robert April took possession of the interdimensional transfer device that made it possible. Since then each captain of the Enterprise, from Christopher Pike to James T. Kirk, has guarded this secret with his life.
Now Romulan agents have succeeded in stealing the device and are using it to banish Ambassador Sarek and Councillor Gorkon to an unknown realm in the midst of their groundbreaking Federation-Klingon peace negotiations. With time running out as interstellar war looms in one universe - and alien forces marshal in another - will Captain Kirk and his crew preserve the tenuous peace and reclaim the key between the dimensions?

As a fan of the original Star Trek TV series it was just okay overall and I struggled to listen to it all the way through. (The first book in the series was really good, the second is the same as the third.) The story is okay, but you have to be fan to really like it. Robert Petkoff's performance is the best part. He has each Star Trek character down and is near spot-on with the accents. I would only recommend this book to Star Trek fans.
The voice acting was fantastic! This was one of the best audiobooks I have listened to when it comes to the voice acting. They did a great job making the reader sound like the character that was supposed to be speaking. I really want to find out what happens when they go in front of Starfleet.
Everything is relative, and while none of the books in the series were great, this one was much better than the second. I listened to it only for closure and my expectations weren't high going in.
Overall, I think only a Star Trek fan could tolerate it, though they might cry at the illogical storylines.
The best was the little bit of time spent with the original series crew. The least was all the time spent away from the crew.
no, I don't think so
women's voices wrong
There is no way this is ever going to be made into a movie so, no.
Disappointing part 2 of a 3 part series.
In this last book of the trilogy, the authors resorted to some techniques to solve plot complications and free our protagonists. But the chosen techniques were in my humble opinion disappointing. Why? With a bit of plot spoiling, if I might quote a ride from Epcot Center at Walt Disney World, "If you can dream it you can do it!"
The narrator was awesome. He managed the voice to sound like the original Enterprise crew. He captured the cadence and accents the best I've ever heard. There was actually no need to state who was speaking. You knew. My Coy was the only one that sound like the new crew from the movies.
When the narration part would say "and Kirk said with a slight smile" you could hear the smile as the words Kirk was to say were said. The performance was better than first rate. I shared audio clips with fellow Fans and they were just as impressed as I was.
The 3 book storyline sucked me in completely. The TV hasn't been on for days while I listened instead. I usually save audio books for commute time but I just couldn't stop there.
This is one that I could visualize so completely I felt I was right there with them.
I even had to tell a co-worker over the weekend that I'm just done for the day with work problems and I have to get back to the Klingon and Enterprise battle. Everyone else can just wait!
I can't say enough about it.
This is actually the first time I've even bothered to write comments about an audiobook and I've listened to many of them.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
this guy needs to learn how to pronounce sareks name. story was fun and though not exactly canon it was somewhat accurate to the original tos universe.
Loved this story. The story was great. It kept me company on my long trips.
"Weakest of the trilogy, still good"
A bit slower than the previous books, still good, but a bit slower paced that the previous two
"A wild ride"
This the third and final book was just as good. And I still could not see how this would end.
Think I listen to it again 9/10
