Publisher's Summary

Veridian lll: A world has been saved, the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701-D lies in ruins, and one of the galaxy's greatest heroes rest beneath a simple cairn of rocks on a lonely hillside. But as a legendary Vulcan ambassador comes at last to the grave of his best and dearest friend, the adventure is only beginning. For the Borg and renegades from the Romulan Empire have joined forces in an unholy alliance against the United Federation of Planets, and their ultimate weapon is none other than James T. Kirk, resurrected by mysterious alien science to destroy the Borg's most formidable enemy: Jean-Luc Picard. From Deep Space Nine to the Borg Homeworld itself, the battle is joined in the ultimate confrontation between the old generation and the new. Old friends are reunited and ancient secrets revealed, as Riker, Spock, Data, and all of the Federation's best and brightest find themselves enmeshed in a cosmic saga that will test their strengths and loyalties to the very limit.

    "great story!"

    Shatner does a great job... but he should try to change his voice up just a bit more for the different voices .... really have to pay attention when everything sounds like it was said by Kirk! lol.

    "Interesting story, good performance"
    What did you love best about Star Trek: The Return (Adapted)?

    The storyline has a few holes, but overall- a good story that I wish they made into a movie when it was still possible (actors' ages, missing the late L. Nimoy).


    What about William Shatner’s performance did you like?

    Shatner is a great and passionate performer, although all characters sounded much like Kirk, unavoidably.

    Story
    "Wish it had ALL the original actors."

    As much as I enjoy hearing a Star Trek book read by William Shatner, I find that it can make it hard to follow the story. Especially while listening to it in the car. If you lose focus for a couple of seconds it can make it difficult to ascertain which character is speaking since they ALL sound like Kirk. Overall I enjoyed the story and regret that it will never see an on screen adaptation.

    "A great listen and continuation of the Star Trek universe!"

    William Shatner not only does an outstanding job as author but as narrator. He captures the essence of Star Trek and its diverse characters, storyline and pace. Captain Kirk/William Shatner dose it again by taking us on a journey we'll want to relive over and over again, just as he/they've done since Star Trek aired in the 1960s. The story is clearly connected and even for those coming late to the Star Trek universe it's been made easy to fall into it by Kirk's/Shatner's talented writing and narration.

    Listening to Shatner read was kind of cool. The story was confusing and kind of simple.

    "Good story, nice reading, wish it was longer."

    I know they can't do an unabridged version when they dramatize it, but I do wish it was a longer read. I'm sure the book had more detail and information that seemed glossed over. But I do enjoy the added music and sound effects. I enjoyed the story and definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to read the Shatnerverse of Star Trek.

    "It was alright"

    I got this book because a friend told me is was great. It thought it was ok, but not great. I think the problem this audiobook has is that is not unabridged.

    We, in our family, are Star Trek fans. However, this story just did not hold my interest.
