Publisher's Summary

As the end of the twentieth century nears, an asteroid is hurtling toward Earth. When it hits, the impact will result in the end of all life on the planet.

Ambassador Spock travels back in time to subtly warn Earth's inhabitants of impending doom while calling into question humanity's priorities. However, before the truth is told, the all-powerful being, Q, appears and reminds Spock that he is prohibited from interfering in Earth's history. Besides, Q doesn't see mankind as something worth saving.

This initial encounter between the two legendary characters explodes into a battle of wits as Spock cleverly befuddles Q with his own words. As barbs are exchanged, and humanity's flaws and wonders are laid bare, Spock's logic just may convince Q that humans are indeed a species worthy of salvation; but will he be too late?

    "Star Trekkers - This One's for You"

    If you like Q, and if you like Spock, and you have always wondered what would happen if the two actually met, then this is the meeting you have been waiting for. The two actors creatively pull of a "meeting of the minds" on a stage somewhere and what follows is just pure fun. Sure, there were parts that seemed a little stilted but you know what? Who cares?! The actors made it possible to see exactly what was going on just with their voices and it was worth every cent I spent.

    "A real hoot!"

    This was a real treat for Star Trek fans. It was performed live at a convention and featured not only Spock, but the actor who portrayed Q. He's just as obnoxious in this story as in Star Trek and trading barbs with our favorite Vulcan. This is just half the story although fairly complete in itself. Get the sequel, too.

    "Fun and Entertaining! an overall winner!!"
    What did you love best about Star Trek?

    The antagonistic yet fun chemistry between the main characters. This is a great performance reading!! a fun "what if Spock & Q ever met" scenerio :O)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Trek?

    The initial meeting dialogue, Q's ode to himself and Spock's discourse on human life are all quite memorable.


    Have you listened to any of Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes & this is Top Rate!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The verbal sparring was first rate and even though it is all audio, I could "see" them interacting in my minds' eye. That is how closely meshed ther characterizations are!!


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Star Trek and enjoy "Spock's" and "Q's' characters, then this (and the sequel) are both "must haves" for your collection.!!

    "Fansastic and hirlourous"
    What made the experience of listening to Star Trek the most enjoyable?

    I love this audiobook and the sequel! I kept listening this again and again because I love hearing Mr Nimoy and de Lance voices and playing their parts to the hilt.

    "A great way to spend an hour"

    Star Trek's Q and Spock face off in a battle of wits and humor. Great for an intermission or just a short listen.

    "Great performances but it was not a book"
    Would you try another book from Leonard Nimoy and/or Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie ?

    Yes, Nimoy and John de Lancie were great.


    Any additional comments?

    I should have listened to the sample before buying. This was more of a play/comedy routine than a book.

    "Wish I had been there"

    A great capture of some great actors. Simply fun to listen to - as someone liking Star Trek. Leonard Nimoy is absolute brilliant int his - as is John de Lancie. Wish I had been there in the audience.

    "Ear Candy"

    A delightful hour of banter and inside jokes taped in front of a live audience. Nimoy and de Lancie are clearly relishing attempting to out do the other. If you watched The Old Show and Next Generation, it's a welcome return to those series. Sure, it got a bit long, but the overall spirit and the gentle acknowledgment of the fans is like comfort food.

    "One for serious Trekkers only"

    The only redeeming feature of this audio programme was the performance of Q, which unfortunately only highlighted Leonard Nimoy's totally wooden Spock. The so-called riddles were turgid, convoluted and overly clever. This is one for serious Trekkers and convention goers only, everyone else should give it a miss.
