This is a single -voiced presentation with background sounds and music: phasers, explosions, clangs, and sometimes people, such as multi-voiced crowds or cries of pain. The music is vintage "Star Trek;" the story builds upon a "Next Generation" episode. It all fits into a nice package, and reader Joe Morton has the young man's voice that the main character calls for. However, he appears to believe that the essence of dramatic effect is to separately enunciate each word with distinct pauses in between, and he uses this device too often. "Star Trek" fans won't care. D.R.W. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
