This deft presentation of a well-written Star Trek novel features a single reader, with occasional interjections by other voices dramatizing background shouts and discussions. Leonard Nimoy is obviously a master of the major character, the half-Vulcan, half-human Spock, but he also captures with eerie precision the intonations and inflections of other famous characters, most particularly Doctor McCoy and Spock's father, Ambassador Sarek. The narrative is punctuated by the appropriate sound effects of a good space opera: phasers blasting, red-alert sirens sounding, desert winds howling. The story itself takes place a little after Captain Kirk's apparent death, as featured in the movie STAR TREK GENERATIONS. D.R.W. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
