Description

An exhilarating thriller from best-selling author Dayton Ward set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation, following Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew as they explore the previously uncharted and dangerous Odyssean Pass.

Surveying a nebula as part of their continuing exploration of the previously uncharted Odyssean Pass, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the starship Enterprise encounter a rogue planet. Life signs are detected on the barren world's surface, and then a garbled message is received: a partial warning to stay away at all costs. Determined to render assistance, Picard dispatches Commander Worf and an away team to investigate, but their shuttlecraft is forced to make an emergency landing on the surface - moments before all contact is lost and the planet completely disappears.

Worf and his team learn that this mysterious world is locked into an unending succession of random jumps between dimensions, the result of an ambitious experiment gone awry. The Enterprise crew members and the alien scientists who created the technology behind this astonishing feat find themselves trapped, powerless to break the cycle. Meanwhile, as the planet continues to fade in and out of various planes of existence, other parties have taken notice....

More Unabridged Star Trek TNG!

Good Story but honestly, I would buy a Star Trek TNG book even if it was unanimously panned by critics. (Please Audible, bring more UNABRIDGED Star Trek books. I'm listening to Hell's Heart now and I don't see any other unabridged TNG books to listen to after I'm done.) Anyways, the story itself is interesting if not particularly exciting. still, it's great beaming back into the prime universe during the Star Trek TNG era.

Quintessential TNG

This book isn't flashy or dramatic but it is a really enjoyable listen for a TNG fan. We've got the scanning of phase variances and reconfiguring of photon torpedoes and re routing of power from the rear deflectors - a typical Star Trek story, with all my favorite characters behaving just as one would expect. It was like curling up in front of a fire on a cold night. With hot chocolate. And the narrator was spot on, I could always tell who was speaking, and he got the cadences and accents down very well.

It does bear mentioning that you should pay attention to the chapter headings - I sometimes let those flow over me, but I realized they were key to knowing where/when you are in the dimensional shift.

All around enjoyable, solid 4 star listen. I recommend to other fans!

Boredom from another dimension

Let me preface this by saying I am a huge trekker. I have watched every show and movie and I have a read a number of Trek books. Yet, never in my life have I been this bored. I could summarise this book in 3 lines, and all the rest is just filler, with the story (if you can call it that) moving at an excruciatingly slow pace as it shifts in each chapter to the perspective of another crew (be it Enterprise E, D, or the irrelevant Romulan comic relief). With lots of technobabble. In fact, that is the main way the author tries to elicit a sense of excitement. Another technical malfunction or puzzle that Geordi and his merry men have to resolve. Oh boy! To make matters worse, the villains (again, in the loosest sense of the word) in this book are beyond irrelevant and absolutely toothless, and in the end just serve to add a few more tiresome chapters and additional characters you could not possibly give a damn about. Even in the epilogue, I found myself praying that something would happen. Something unexpected, surprising or exciting. I didn't even care if it made sense at that point. The only plus side is that the narrator does a really great job at portraying all the 1000000000000 characters that we are forced to learn about. My hat off to him, he really made each one stand out as an individual.

play the hand you're dealt

this is very well done. The story was excellent, the vocal performance was very good. took me a little while to get through it. but it is definitely worth another read-through

Thoroughly enjoyed

Robert Petcoff is amazing. I could easily differentiate and visualize each individual. He captures the accents and voices of familiar Star Trek characters like a voice impressionist. The storyline was interesting and kept my attention. No adolescent silliness like in some other star trek novels. Be aware to pay attention in the beginning to realize there are two Enterprise's.

Narrator is amazing

This story is classic Next Gen material. Very faithful to Star Trek’s original universe. But the big factor here is the reader’s ability to sound like Picard, Riker, Data, LaForge and such. Not only “sound” like them, but he imitates their speech pattern and emphasis. This made me picture the cast and the ship clearly in my mind. Wonderful experience.

It's a good Segway to a sequel

Really slow and uneventful, more about characters talking to each other abt how they feel abt the action than the action itself.

👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I really enjoyed this story. It's great to have new Star Trek audio books. The narrator did a great job. I recommend this to sci fi fans. Hi John and Sarah.

Could be a good TNG Episide red by the best.

....seriously, Robert Petkovs talent in immitating the original casts voices is just amasing. The story itself is, in my book, rather straight forward, no real surprises here, no big twists and turns, instead you get what i call a classic TNG feeling. I like that, i enjoyed it, and i do in fact recommend it.

One of my new favorite Star Trek books

A great story with a great performance by the narrator. A story that would deserve a second chapter if that's possible. One of the stories that,no matter how long it is, isn't long enough.

Genialer Sprecher

Der Sprecher imitiert nahezu perfekt die Sprechstimmen der Original-Charaktere. Großartige! Seine Stimme sagt an, wer spricht.
