Various enhancements of the Star Wars saga have been produced, and this offering is typical of those that are not full-cast efforts. Henry Thomas reads well; he has a young voice like Luke Skywalker's, but he ably provides appropriate shading for alien and aged characters when the circumstances demand. A full range of sound effects is offered, from explosions to laser blasts and 'droid voices, and, of course, John Williams's classic musical score. Stackpole's narrative focuses on a minor character from the films, Skywalker's friend, Wedge Antilles, but the story is simplistic and forced. Nonetheless, there's a wide audience for anything in this genre. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
