Russ played a Vulcan on the TV series "Star Trek: Voyager"; he needs all his knowledge and acting skill to bring this confusing story into focus. One thing that helps is that he has the voice of Captain Jean-Luc Picard down to a science; one thinks Patrick Stewart is there. Another, he has behind him the subtle special effects and rousing music that bring the listener squarely into the Star Trek universe. The Genesis Wave is a mutagenic wave of great size and searingly destructive effect that creates disaster on a planetary scale. A wall to another dimension is weakened and . . . well, that sort of thing. The ENTERPRISE saves the day. D.R.W.
