I purchased this audio because of Leonard Nimoy and other Star Treck notables being in it. I own already the original and thought it couldn't be topped. This dramatized version is beautifully done and the changes noticable but not distracting or annoying. The voices were always clear and understandable over the background effects. As always LATW top quality.
Sudo rendition similar to radio broadcast...left me wanting alot more than I got. A scratchy copy of the actual radio broadcast would have been better.
