This adventure relates a saga of whales and the Starship Enterprise's attempts to save the earth. It is a well presented and performed adaptation. James Doohan, Starship Enterprise's own Scotty, uses a full repertoire of mellow voices to represent the different characters, male and female. The music is appropriate. The spots in which Doohan reads over a musical passage enhance the story by turning spoken word into imagery. Several types of cassette players were used in reviewing this material, and several settings of graphic equalizer were tried. The performance stood up well on everything from battery to plug-in machine. The tapes withstood the repeated stop-start they took during the process and produced no woof or wobble. J.Z.D.
