Publisher's Summary

The Federation races to discover the culprits of several terrorist attacks, sending their flagship, the USS Prometheus, to stop war breaking out in the galaxy. 

A dangerous evil is flourishing in the Alpha Quadrant. In the Lembatta Cluster, a curious region of space, fanatics who call themselves the Purifying Flame are trying to start a galactic war, and the warlike Klingons are baying for blood. The Federation have sent the USS Prometheus to settle the crisis, and the crew must contend with both the hostile Renao, the secretive inhabitants of the Cluster, and the Klingon captain of the IKS Bortas, who is desperate for war.

Painful pronunciations.

There are so many odd pronunciations of Klingon words and other wording that it really tarnishes the performance.

A mission to mispronounce

I realize the journey that this book has traveled. Originally in German, translated into English, narrated by someone British, and listen to by an audience in America. However, it is almost comical how many words that the narrator mispronounces. And not mispronounced in a cute British vs American way. Mispronounced words which are part of the common lexicon of Star Trek, that someone somewhere could have instructed him how to pronounce correctly. During the first volume, I was frustrated at the number of words he could not seem to pronounce as they have been pronounced in all previous Star Trek media. But it's at a ridiculous level in this book. Any fan who haa watched a modicum of episodes and movies in the Star Trek franchise could have corrected his pronunciations before they were recorded.

Too slow for me

Interesting story line and I enjoyed the interweaving of the star trek characters, but the story moved far too slow. I will not purchase anymore books in this series.

Good but...

I enjoyed this and the characters, but the ending cliff hanger annoyed me.

The recording of the narrator feels thin like they took out all of the bass from his voice, which ultimately weakens the listen.

Enjoyed this series very much.

Easy to follow the character development and interesting plot twists to keep it moving along. Well-written and I enjoyed listening to the Narrator as well. Thanks for a great story.

Pronunciations Threw Me

Some of the pronunciations of common Trek terms threw me in the performance but I enjoyed the story. Narrators should be given pronunciation guides for franchise work.

Yet again this reader has mispronounce Star Trek words

This was a very good book but the mispronunciations of well known Star Trek words annoyed me. Words such as Kahless, Khitoma accords, Betazoid and now Raktajino . He pronounced Raktajino as “Rakta ino” but it should be pronounced as rack-ta-keen-oh”. Apart from the reader pronunciation I enjoyed this book very much and can’t wait to listen to the next book
