Publisher's Summary

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?

    "Struggled to Finish"

    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.

    "Weak"

    Good narrator, interesting story, terrible dialogue. I heard they wrote these books on a very tight deadline. It shows.

    "A great finish"

    Loved it and hoping for many more unabridged Star Trek audiobooks from this author and others during this 50th anniversary and beyond. I felt the first book in the triology was a bit too reboot version feel but by the 2nd book it was on voice and tone. The 3rd book was fully developed and more with a fitting finish. Very happy with this trilogy.

    "...Meh..."

    Okay, not great. Quite a disappointing end to what began as a promising trilogy. Some of the plot points made no sense, which was frustrating. The whole Klingon side show in here seemed completely tacked on...I thought it was going somewhere and I was initially intrigued by it, but no, it wasn't, it seemingly just served to fill time. And the ending...over an hour of wrapping up and tying up loose ends...over an hour of listening to everyone pat everyone else on the back...it felt completely inorganic.

    "Nice Tribute"

    Nice tribute to the Original and best of the Stars Trek series. A solid ending of the trilogy, and done in time for the 50th anniversary.

    "A very Star Trek conclusion"

    This story wraps up the 3 book arc of Legacies. I have really enjoyed the
    3 new audiobooks. The narrator did a good job with all the characters

    "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
