Publisher's Summary

Following their best sellers Vulcan's Forge and Vulcan's Heart, Josepha Sherman and Susan Shwartz embark on a new trilogy chronicling the latter-day adventures of one of Star Trek's most beloved characters, shedding new light on his world's shocking history.

One year after the end of the Dominion War, the Romulan Star Empire comes under attack by a mysterious and alarmingly powerful enemy calling itself the Watraii, a species with a long-standing vendetta against the Romulans. Yet though they remain tenuously allied, the Federation, the Romulans, and the Klingons are unready to become embroiled in another sustained conflict, forcing Ambassador Spock, Admiral Uhura, Admiral Chekov, Captain Saavik, and some unexpected allies to defy their governments in order to meet the new threat head-on. But the first blood drawn may prove to be among the dearest of all.

Enjoyable

I did enjoy it. However, since this is book one of three, there isn't an audio listening to book two. Can't listen to book three until I read book two. That's the only downfall of this.

Check First or Don't Bother

What would have made Star Trek better?

The existence of Book 2: Exiles in Audible stock would have made this book better. The audiobook does exist, however, for reasons that Audible and Amazon have not yet replied to me about, Book 2 does not exist in Audible's library. If you get hooked with book one Exodus, you'll definitely want to listen to Book 2 only to find out that Audible does not have book 2 (as of this posting in mid January 2012).

What was one of the most memorable moments of Star Trek?

My most memorable moment is the cliffhanger when Chekhov gets involved in a special mission near the end of the book.

What didn’t you like about Boyd Gaines’s performance?

Mr. Gaines' performance was okay: not remarkable but not distracting with his style. The only thing is that his female voice characterizations are slightly comical. To publisher: there are plenty of out-of-work Star Trek actors. Why did not you use one of them?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The book didn't spark Anger, Sadness or Disapointment, but Audible did spark Anger, Sadness and Disapointment when I found out that Audible does not have book 2 and have not yet responded to my email regarding that issue.

Any additional comments?

Audible needs better customer service. I haven't yet received an answer regarding Book 2 and now Audible is asking me to rate the book.When Audible makes available a series of books, trilogy, etc. Audible should check if they have the complete series, otherwise post up front in the book description that Book 2 is currently not available, or something to that effect. I never thought to check if Audible had the complete series when I signed up with Audible. I assumed that they would have the whole series.

If you want some Vulcan history...

Spock is married to Captain Saavik, we finally get that bit of history. I have to ask though, Audible has book one of the Vulcan Soul trilogy and book three. What about book two, Exiles? Come on Audible how am I to know what leads up to book 3?

Intriguing ending?

I don't care for men doing women voices however the story kept me enthralled. The end was quite surprising. Would love to continue with Book 2.

Where is Book 2?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would not recommend it unless they are willing to not experience the Second of Three parts. What a disappointment. I loved the story, but I would not have bought it if I had realized that Part 2 was not available.

Any additional comments?

Come on Audible. Where is part 2?
