Publisher's Summary

Years before they became crewmates on the U.S.S. Enterprise, Commander William Riker and ship's counsellor Deanna Troi had a tempestuous love affair on her home planet of Betazed. Now, as their passions have cooled, the two serve together as close friends. Yet the memories of what passed between them linger and Riker and Troi remain Imzadi, a powerful Betazoid term that describes the enduring bond they still share. On a delicate mission involving negotiations with an aggressive race called the Sindareen, Deanna mysteriously falls ill...and dies. But her death marks the start of an incredible adventure for Riker - an adventure that takes him across time, pits him against one of his closest friends, and forces him to choose between Starfleet's strictest rule and the one he calls Imzadi.

The story relies heavily on the shock value of a civilization that prefers nakedness. Not sure if it is the writing or Frakes stilted narration, that makes this sound like it is a noir style story. It was not a bad book and even I can last three hours, but it is pretty costly for three hours of only so-so story. If you want to know the background on how Number One and Counselor Troi meet, than it is a must.

I loved Star Trek the Next Generation, but will hve to admit that Frakes character was my least favorite. His narration is very much like the way he played the character on the show. Each sentence is a statement and there is no flow from one sentence to another. If you loved is character for other than his looks, (which you can't see on audio), then you will love his narration.

Too Short

Any additional comments?

I would of prefered to listen to an unabriged verson of the book but it was good for an abriged verson. It would of been better if each audio chapter told what the chapter was while listing since the written book has Epilogue and middle and prolouge all over the place

Poor recording quality

No problem with the performance or story - though an unabridged version would have been more enlightening.

The quality however is lacking, often echoes can be heard and loud hisses. I have this on Cassette which has better quality - still conveniently this version is on my phone 😄
