Publisher's Summary

In the late 21st century, humanity has united after countless years of warfare, and turns toward the stars. But when an alien spacecraft crashlands in the South Pacific bearing visitors from another world, the Vulcans, Earth must decide whether to extend the hand of friendship or the fist of war.
In the distant future, horrible dreams torment Admiral James T. Kirk, dreams prompted by his reading of Strangers from the Sky, a book about that historic first contact. He dreams of an alternate reality where he somehow changed the course of history, and destroyed the Federation before it began.

Nice

Another of my favorite StarTrek books. I found it on Audible for sale. It was abridged and I felt it was too compressed but I still enjoyed it. The best part was that it was read by Mr.Takei and some parts of Spock was read by none other than Mr.Nemoy. Both were wonderful. I wish there were non abridged versions!!

Poor adaptation

Loved the book, but this was chopped up way too much to be coherent much less maintain the integrity and majesty of the original book.
