Publisher's Summary

Decades ago, Captain Spock had teamed up with David Rabin, the young son of a Starfleet captain, to fight an attempted coup on Vulcan that would have turned the planet's people away from the path of logic. Now a Starfleet officer, Captain David Rabin has been assigned to a harsh desert world much like Vulcan, where the Federation is determined to protect the lives of the inhabitants. But Rabin's efforts are being sabotaged and he has asked for Spock's help against the unknown forces that may well destroy the society he had come to save. While reflecting on his youthful adventure with Rabin, Spock joins him to face an enemy out of their past and confront deadly Romulan treachery. In the process Spock will decide if the path of his life now leads back toward family traditions he had sought once to escape.

    "Sound effects were distracting"

    The book itself is very revealing into the motives behind Spock joining Star Fleet. Also, Vulcan interpersonal relationships and prejudices are explored. Hearing a book read by Leonard Nimoy himself, who could go wrong? Unfortunately there are periods of narration where there are sounds like a racketball game is going on in the background. Mr. Nimoy's voice is muffled, and I am distracted by the sound effects. I thought someone was throwing a ball against the house. If you can get passed all the distracting sound in background, then you will be satisfied.
