Publisher's Summary

The U.S.S. Enterprise™ discovers the wreckage of a starship upon the monstrous surface of a Dyson sphere, an artificially constructed habitat built around a star; and preserved in a weak transporter pattern is Starfleet engineering legend Montgomery "Scotty" Scott. Mr. Scott boards the Enterprise to find himself lost in a world that he barely recognizes, a world that has passed him by.

But soon the Enterprise finds itself trapped within the Dyson sphere and pulled into the star, and Scotty must work with Lt. Geordi La Forge to rescue the Enterprise.

Incredibly Odd Reading

Here's why it's an incredibly odd reading: James Doohan, who has proven himself an exceptional narrator across a wide catalog of audiobooks, does a really terrible job with this story. Had he not in fact starred on the actual episode, his inability to render any of the characters with an appreciable level of authenticity could be overlooked. But if you're a fan of the series, here's the challenge: see how long can you endure listening to Data's lines delivered as though he were a confused Dalek. I lasted just a few minutes before logging on to see if there's any way I can get back the very few dollars I spent on this book.

Scotty and Relics

It was amazing to hear James Doohan narrative of this Star Trek The Next Generation episode. A must have.

excellent

Listening to James Doohan's voice is hypnotic and really made me feel in the scene. Looking forward for more audiobooks like this one.

Story as expected

The story was as expected however the performance did not match the kind of inflection and nuance that was found in the original episode.

enjoyable

I have listened to this production twice now and enjoyed it each time. Having been a fan of Star Trek since childhood I found it a little jarring to have familier characters sound different to the TV characters, however the characterisation within the story was true to the characters of the series so I got over that quickly. Well done.
