Publisher's Summary

Ten years have passed since Captain Kirk and the Enterprise™ crew brought back humpbacked whales from the 20th century to communicate with the mysterious Probe which threatened Earth. The Probe is returning to Earth and has plotted its course, and the Enterprise must continue to delve into the mystery of its language, and its cosmic purpose to save Earth once again.

    "Romulan based story, barely touches on Probe"

    I had previously read the physical book & that had a bit more about the Probe & its origins than this audio book, but even so it seems to have barely scratched the surface. The story focuses most on a pair of Romulan siblings, their unhappy lives, & their wish to defect to the federation. I find this extremely frustrating as it's definitely not what I was hoping for. I was hoping with this being an abridged version, they would edit to be heavier on the Probe storyline & on the crew, light on the Romulan character drama. However, it seems they chopped equally from all parts, much to my dismay.

    The Probe & its search for whales is one of the most fascinating storylines EVER, not just in Trek! I have been a fan of the Probe since I first saw STAR trek 4 in the theatre when I was 5 in 1986. Trek + WHALES = pure heaven for me!!
    The author's ideas about the Probe's origins are so creative. I was blown away! She seems to really know the crew & does a great job with them.

    Unfortunately, the good bits feel few & far between, not to mention completely bogged down by uninteresting storylines of melancholy characters.
    Seems like the author had a phenomenal short story about the Probe & a novella about 2 siblings in the USSR (that she pasted with a Romulan facade) & combined them into one novel. I also feel that the ending was weak & disappointing. I really appreciate this author's other books, so I was really shocked by how little I enjoyed this potentially amazing book!!

    James Doohan does a terrific narration, of course. It's a little distracting to hear Scottie speaking, but without his accent! Anything can be a distraction when you find yourself slogging through mundane details about a piano recital. No joke!

    Story
    "A great trek!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Star Trek: Probe (Adapted) to be better than the print version?

    The story was surprisingly good, added to the story from the fourth movie, and Doohan's reading was great!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It makes me want to go back and watch the movie it was based on again.

    "Solid book"

    It could have been longer, but it was interesting and Scotty does a great job as narrator. I always wondered where that probe came from and went.
