Publisher's Summary

Spock's mother, Amanda Grayson, is dying, and Spock returns to the planet Vulcan where he and Sarek enjoy a rare moment of rapprochement. But just as his wife's illness grows worse, duty calls Sarek away, once again sowing the seeds of conflict between father and son. Yet soon Sarek and Spock must put aside their differences and work together to foil a far-reaching plot to destroy the Federation, a plot that Sarek has seen in the making for nearly his entire career.
The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise journeys to the heart of the Klingon Empire where Captain Kirk's last surviving relative has become a pawn in a battle to divide and conquer the Federation. With Sarek's help, the crew of the Starship Enterprise learns that all is not as it seems. But before they can prevent the Federation's destruction, they must see the face of their hidden enemy, an enemy more insidious and more dangerous than any they have faced before.

More Unabridged TOS Please

No mind blowing sci fi apart from that already established in the source material but a well crafted story. I don't know why there aren't more unabridged Trek Titles. Unless this is attributable to Pocket's perceived need to hire Trek actors to read the books. This narrator was wonderful, he subtly impersonates the characters as portrayed by the performers associated with them but more importantly he lends just the right amount of tone and texture to the prose. If more full size Trek books appear I'll certainly spend my credits on them. Well, if they're TOS. The TNG and after stuff is probably better but I just don't get a geek on for it.

UNABRIDGED is always the best versions

Would you listen to Sarek again? Why?

lol, well no because I don't need to re-listen to anything. But definitely loved listening to it!

Which scene was your favorite?

the scenes telling of serek's past and relationship with Amanda.I also liked how they introduced the part of Spock's decision to try and see if bringing volcans and romulans together again. TNG didn't really explain much, and since they reset the series with the new movie, don't think we'll get much explanation of the after math.

Any additional comments?

I don't see the point of having ABRIDGED versions of books. the 14 hrs didn't feel like 14 it felt more like 5 and I was wanting more at the end. This was a good book, almost like comfort and I like the additional characters. I wish they talked more about how the other volcans adapted and the young couple.
