Is a Star Trek Convention skit really a book?

I love Star Trek, but this was too over the top. More importantly, I was surprised that this was recorded live at a Star Trek convention or equivalent. Nothing in the description emphasizes or even mentions this. You can hear the audience hooting and hollering throughout the entire 54 minutes. This is really more of a weak attempt at a stage play between two popular characters then any real story. Though somewhat unique and cute at times, the majority is a series of haraugues with no real purpose than to hear the characters talk. Hard to call this a book or even a story. If you haven't heard it before, you will probably be disappointed. Unless you enjoy EVERYTHING that is Star Trek (no exceptions), buy something else.

Very different Star Trek

I was a bit shocked when I started listening because this isn't really a Star Trek book. Its more a vaudeville/farce. Once I got over the shock and started listening, I thought it was rather fun.

It would be much better seeing the performance live but I think anyone who likes the Star Trek characters would enjoy this.
