Publisher's Summary

He was an Iowa farm boy and a war hero, promoted to the command of the Federation's most powerful starship. His first mission: to shuttle a troop of vaudevillians to a distant starbase. But a comedy of errors turns to deadly drama when a renegade Klingon tries to provoke a war with the Federation, and a wondrous, peaceful world is caught in between. Suddenly Captain Kirk is playing a part he never learned in school: fighting for the respect - and the survival - of his crew, on a mission that could turn out to be his last.

Abridged :( :( :(

What would have made Star Trek better?

There should be a warning before purchasing abridged editions of books. Wish I could get my money back.

How could the performance have been better?

There should be a law against selling abridged books. Or at least a big warning that pops up before you waste your money.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None, threw it away without listening. Abridged books are a waste of money. Very disappointed that audible sells them

Decent first adventure story.

Overall not bad. Sound effects sometimes hinder Voice dialogue. But Takei and Nimoy are wonderful.

Too short

This is a great book, I remember reading as a fan and adolescent. The basic story is there but thier isn't enough. But a great story nonetheless.

Music too loud.

Background music and sound effects were too loud. It was difficult to hear the narrator.

Very like the original series!

Enjoyed in a nostalgic fashion. Good narration although the story was a little weak it did have all the elements of an episode.
