Publisher's Summary

Internal pressures, enormous military expenditures, and the destruction of their primary energy source have brought the Klingon Empire to the verge of catastrophic collapse. To avert disaster, Gorkon, Chancellor of the Klingon High Council, proposes negotiations between the Federation and Klingon Empire, negotiations that will put an end to the years of hostility between the two powers and herald a new era of peace and cooperation. Captain James T. Kirk and the U.S.S. Enterprise™ are dispatched to escort the Chancellor safely into Federation space.

But a treacherous assassination brings negotiations to a sudden halt and places Kirk and Dr. McCoy in the hands of the Federation's greatest enemy. With time running out, Spock and the Enterprise crew work to uncover the deadly secret that threatens to propel the galaxy into the most destructive conflict it has ever known.

Theater for the mind!

Started listening to these stories in the early 2000. Fantastic narration and the sound effects make these stories come alive!

Best movie

Since James Doohan has died, I would never say his performance was not stellar. That being said. This is best as a movie not an audio book.

Great story---this audio, not so much

I truly enjoyed this movie and remember reading the novelization years ago. The overall novelization I thought was quite decent; but you'd never get that from this audiobook entry.

It is an abridged version. I knew that going in. The reason I wanted it in my library is because it is one of the original cast movie entries. However, the story is so abridged that it loses all the nuances, suspense, mystery & emotion of the story. In fact, if you didn't know the movie, the story wouldn't make sense.

Narration: It is a disservice and disappointment that these movie entry audiobooks as well as many of the older Star Trek books are done by either George Takei & James Doohan. As a HUGE original series fan, I appreciate hearing their voices; but only to a point, especially with Jimmy Doohan gone now. Yet neither are good voice actors and you never get absorbed into the story because of this. Doohan is better than Takei; but both border on a bad listen.

It would be a treat to see these redone in an unabridged version with a true voice actor that can capture the essence of each characters speech sound & patterns. Seems Robert Petkoff is the go-to man for many of the Star Trek books. It would be a better listen with him.

Not good

This audiobook was so abridged that it could barely make sense out the story. So many things left out that the story suffered horribly. If you're thinking about this one and you're a Star Trek fan don't bother. Even James Doohan's narration couldn't save it.
