This novelization of the tenth Star Trek film is the latest in the long series of Star Trek audiobooks. The quality of these productions is consistently excellent, and this one is no exception. Sound effects and music familiar to fans are used throughout the story, effectively establishing setting. The story centers on the conflict between Captain Picard and Shinzon, his clone. There's also an important subplot involving Commander Data and another android. Boyd Gaines takes the helm this time, expertly performing the established characters. The story is at times nostalgic, at others adventurous. Gaines handles it all with apparent ease. S.D. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
