Though not as flashy as the Star Wars audio derivatives, this is very good nonetheless. Reader Boyd Gaines soberly portrays the various "Star Trek: The Next Generation" characters with eerie accuracy, especially Captain Picard--you'd swear Patrick Stewart was filling in. The audio special effects are well done, usually at low volume in the background--providing tremendous verisimilitude. And the Star Trek music is there, too, punctuating events. The story has the Enterprise intervening in the plans of a Starfleet admiral led astray by an evil sub-race bent on destroying an inhabited planet to capture nearby rays of immortality.
