Publisher's Summary

A restless, passionate Enterprise crew is called to Aleph Prime, where a demented physicist and murderer, Georges Mordreaux, must be transported to Rehabilitation Colony Seven. Incredibly, despite heavy security, Mordreaux breaks loose on board - and fatally guns down Captain Kirk! Suddenly the Enterprise is fighting for its life, while Spock realizes that Mordreaux is only part of a far more dangerous phenomenon. Mordreaux's past experiments have created alternate realities in the present, and known existence is beginning to unravel. Now Spock must count on Mordreaux himself to help undo what has already been done - and to bring Kirk back from the dead.For more Trek titles, browse our special Star Trek section!

Fun! Wish it were unabridged

Be warned, this is an adaptation/abridgment of McIntyre's now classic Trek novel. The fun here is in listening to George Takei and Leonard Nimoy do the performance. This is an especially poignant listening experience now that Nimoy has died. Time travel, loyalty, and the bonds of friendship are all on display here in this very quick, but fun listen. I just wish they had recorded an unabridged version. Oh well...

No Kirk… Time travel… George is hard to listen to

The entropy affect was a decent story, but I had a few small complaints. This book was recommended highly to me from several Star Trek websites. No none of them gave the fact that one of our favorite characters, Captain James Kirk, was barely seen in this story. As with any story dealing with time travel there are several gaping plot holes. Finally George tries to make voices for some of the new characters, and often is hard to understand. I'm not crazy about books with sound effects and music, both of which this book contained, but neither was that bad in this title.
