Publisher's Summary

In the late 21st century, humanity has united after countless years of warfare, and turns toward the stars. But when an alien spacecraft crashlands in the South Pacific bearing visitors from another world, the Vulcans, Earth must decide whether to extend the hand of friendship or the fist of war.

In the distant future, horrible dreams torment Admiral James T. Kirk, dreams prompted by his reading of Strangers from the Sky, a book about that historic first contact. He dreams of an alternate reality where he somehow changed the course of history, and destroyed the Federation before it began.

    "Nice"

    Another of my favorite StarTrek books. I found it on Audible for sale. It was abridged and I felt it was too compressed but I still enjoyed it. The best part was that it was read by Mr.Takei and some parts of Spock was read by none other than Mr.Nemoy. Both were wonderful. I wish there were non abridged versions!!

    "Clashes with tv series canon"

    The story talks about first contact between humans and Vulcans, but tells a story quite different from what was told in the television series. It made it harder for me to accept the story. I don't know if I would have enjoyed it better if I didn't know the tv series' version of events.

    I really wish they wouldn't abridge the Star Trek books. They cut so much out. It feels like they dump two-thirds of the written book. You don't get to know the characters, and the story is over before you realize it started. I can only hope that the unabridged version was more enjoyable, despite the clashing "history" of first contact.

    The best part: hearing George Takei and Leonard Nimoy.

    "Shafted"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The book is not bad, the audio version is too short and cant possibly fit the book into 1 hour and 32 minutes.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Margaret Wander Bonanno? Why or why not?

    yes.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Takei and Leonard Nimoy ’s performances?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I would like to see an unabridged version.

    "Entertaining!"
    Where does Star Trek: Strangers from the Sky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 3 - I will hear it again, and again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Spock, because he's Spock, I can relate to being too logical. He helped the story's credit.


    What about George Takei and Leonard Nimoy ’s performance did you like?

    The way it felt like I was in the Enterprise and they were reading to me, it gives a thorough performance, almost like the show but in audio.


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

    Yes, the end had a nice touch to the story, without spoilers, it did make you thing "was it"?


    Any additional comments?

    For the amount price listed, these are bargain brand, genuine show like entertainment. I will hear these over again.
