Publisher's Summary

As the end of the twentieth century nears, an asteroid is hurtling toward Earth. When it hits, the impact will result in the end of all life on the planet. Ambassador Spock travels back in time to subtly warn Earth's inhabitants of impending doom while calling into question humanity's priorities. However, before the truth is told, the all-powerful being, Q, appears and reminds Spock that he is prohibited from interfering in Earth's history. Besides, Q doesn't see mankind as something worth saving.
This initial encounter between the two legendary characters explodes into a battle of wits as Spock cleverly befuddles Q with his own words. As barbs are exchanged, and humanity's flaws and wonders are laid bare, Spock's logic just may convince Q that humans are indeed a species worthy of salvation; but will he be too late?

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.

Fun verbal banter between two star trek greats.

This is definitely a stage drama in front of a live audience; know it for what it is. As such, I found it remarkably entertaining. The skill and presence of both actors that made these two characters great is well expressed in this venue, as both are clearly having a tremendous time with the exchange. It is full of heart, wit and laughter. They play anachronistically, using the current global green issue as the form of the interaction, while incorporating many nuances from the series as tidbits to play off. I would agree it is definitely aimed at trekkers, and would be most appreciated by that crowd, but as such it is very enjoyable.

These two characters are, or rather were, a great comedy duo. I shall miss you Leonard
