    "Warf and Deanna Save the World"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was a good star trek book. The narration was fairly good, but it could have been better in places. Still it was worth purchasing this book.


    What other book might you compare Star Trek: The Next Generation: Contamination (Adapted) to and why?

    I would compare it to other star trek books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Wesley Crusher's rescue


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

    Not really. It was fairly good story, but nothing really was moving about this book.

    Story
    "Not the best ST audio, not a wasted credit though!"

    If this is your first Star Trek audiobook, try something else! Michael Dorn is an excellent narrator, as are most of the Shakespearian trained actors that make up the Star Trek casts. That's the part that's totally worth a credit. But this story is lacking or perhaps it's the editing, I didn't actually read the original, so I can't say for sure!
    For your first credits try some of the longer programs, like the unabridged version of Sarek or the 3h+ Shatnerverse books, or any of the longer recordings. I only got this because I already own all the other ST recordings. It's a real disappointment that audible hasn't put any of the modern Star Trek series such as Titan, Vanguard, and the Relaunch novels on audio (well actually they have... But only in German :-(
    Anyway, I believe this is a recording you can skip or save as breadcrumbs for when you've worked your way through the other recordings!

    But whatever you choose: listen to a full sample first! Some of the older Simon & Schuster "enhanced audio" recordings just turn into a cacophonous mess on the wrong speaker system ( yes, that includes tiles like Cacophony). Most of the short recordings are taken from masters that were originally recorded for cassettes or CD's and are thus not only shorter but also of inferior quality due to compression ratios.
    Hope this helps!
    Peace and Long Life

    "Cheesy Story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend this book because the story was week and had a lot of logic flaws. I did not enjoy this story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Dorn's voice work is excellent, to bad it was wasted on a poorly written story.
