Publisher's Summary

Are you willing to settle for an ordinary life? Or do you think you were meant for something better? Something special?"

One grew up in the cornfields of Iowa, fighting for his independence, for a way out of a life that promised only indifference, aimlessness and obscurity. "You will forever be a child of two worlds, capable of choosing your own destiny. The only question you face is, which path will you chose?"

The other grew up on the jagged cliffs of the harsh Vulcan desert, fighting for acceptance, for a way to reconcile the logic he was taught with the emotions he felt.

In the far reaches of the galaxy, a machine of war bursts into existence in a place and time it was never meant to be. On a mission of retribution for the destruction of his planet, its half-mad captain seeks the death of every intelligent being, and the annihilation of every civilized world.

Kirk and Spock, two completely different and unyielding personalities, must find a way to lead the only crew, aboard the only ship, that can stop him.

"The wait is over."

    "Accents got in the way a little"
    Would you listen to Star Trek Movie Tie-In again? Why?

    No but did enjoy it once


    What did you like best about this story?

    Tie in how Captain Pike became injured and the loyalty toward him. Can be enjoyed without knowing original Star Trek series.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Zachary Quinto?

    So So as accent for Scottie got in the way a little.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No but I do not ever sit and read or listen to a book for much more than an hour.

    "Great performance!"
    What did you love best about Star Trek Movie Tie-In?

    Zachary Quinto does a marvelous job capturing the voices of all the different characters in the story. I was completely drawn in. This is definitely a book I will listen to again.


    What about Zachary Quinto’s performance did you like?

    I absolutely loved his performance, especially his pacing and impersonations.

    "Zachary Quinto made this an AWESOME experience!"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Trek Movie Tie-In the most enjoyable?

    I am a huge Star Trek fan, so the story was an automatic 5 stars for me. But Zachary Quinto's outstanding narration made this audiobook a whole new experience for this long-time fan. He has a wonderful voice, but his ability to distinguish characters and convey their emotional conflicts is better than most of the books to which I listen. Even his female voices are believable, without the screechiness that comes from some male narrators. I knew I would love the story when I purchased it, but the audio experience from Zachary gave me a new appreciation for the characters I love. THANKS, Zachary!!! (and I hope you will do more audiobook narrations in the future!)

    "Very Similar to the movie"
    What did you love best about Star Trek Movie Tie-In?

    The added detail to the story that the movie left out. It fills in some gaps and helps you to better understand the movie.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    James T. Kirk, he is a man of action.


    What three words best describe Zachary Quinto’s voice?

    Not good to imitate a female (Sorry, 6 words)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Star Trek on steroids.


    Any additional comments?

    Zachary Quinto does a good job with male characters, but not with female characters.

    Story
    "Best Star Trek yet!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! This is one of my favorite books ever. I love the idea of looking at Star Trek from the beginning, when the Enterprise crew could have first met. Quinto's narration is exciting and emotional, two things that are not always present in Star Trek of the past.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The part of this book that stands out the most to me involves Spock and his relationship with his mother and the emotion that Quinto gives to the scene when Spock's mother dies.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed over and over with things Kirk, in his cocky attitude, says to others, from the bar to the academy, and also with the way Bones responds to others. Best Star Trek yet.

    "I HAD to review this!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! If you enjoyed the movie than your pleasure will be doubled by this novelization! Plus, Quinto reading? I'd listen to this guy read the phone book! His voice is amazing as Spock and I was impressed with the range of inflections/voices with other characters


    What did you like best about this story?

    Additional information and dialogue and scenes the movie did not provide


    Have you listened to any of Zachary Quinto’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is his first right? If there are more I certainly want them. I hope Audible reads these reviews because when they do a reboot 2 book or make novels out of some of the reboot graphic novels, I hope they will ask him to be the narrator again.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Lol...Star Trek...


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this! Listen! And then Listen Again!
    Live Long and Prosper my fellow Trekkies!

    "I should have just watched the movie"

    I am a huge Trekkie. I loved the shows, loved most of the movies, and have read and loved quite a few of the books. The movie this book was based on is excellent, in my opinion, and as the author had a chance to actually SEE the movie before he wrote the novelization, I expected a better book than this. It's not that it's a bad book, it's that I expected...more from it. For all intents and purposes, it's the movie in book form. There are a few differences here and there, and some contradictions and repetitions in the text itself, but there is no deeper delving. We learn nothing of Nero's 25-year imprisonment on the Klingon prison planet; we learn nothing of the Romulans other than what is shown in the movie; we basically learn nothing we didn't already know by watching the movie. On the other hand, Zachary Quinto's narration is quite good and the production itself is also quite good. I just wish the book offered more.

    "Just as good as the movie!"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Trek Movie Tie-In the most enjoyable?

    seeing the words play out on the movie screen in my mind


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Trek Movie Tie-In?

    each moment as it went along. each scene compiled on the last.
    the scene where Spock turned the little ship around & made a death-run for the monstrous Romulin ship.


    Which character – as performed by Zachary Quinto – was your favorite?

    his rendition of Scotty was superb. he did all the characters very well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Alternate Universe


    Any additional comments?

    really enjoyed the book. will probably listen to it again & again!
