Publisher's Summary

In all of his travels, Captain Picard has never encountered an opponent more powerful than Q, a being from another continuum that Picard encountered on his very first mission as captain of the starship Enterprise. In the years since, Q has returned to harass Picard and his crew. Sometimes dangerous, sometimes merely obnoxious, Q has always been mysterious and seemingly all-powerful.
But now, Trelane, another member of the continuum whom Captain Kirk and his crew first encountered over 100 years ago, has tapped in to an awesome power source that makes him more powerful than the combined might of the entire continuum. Q warns that, armed with this incredible power, Trelane has become unspeakably dangerous. Now Picard must get involved in an awesome struggle between superbeings. And this time, the stakes are not just Picard's ship, or the galaxy, or even the universe - this time the stakes are all of creation.

Not even, I love this book. In fact John de Lancie is one of the best readers of all time, but I want the whole recording.

How could the performance have been better?

No. I've heard the whole thing before, Its great.

What character would you cut from Star Trek, The Next Generation: Q-Squared (Adapted)?

None. The story and characters are great but its not all there.

Abridged version is aweful

Would you try another book from Peter David and/or John de Lancie?

Why on earth is this abridged? I read the book years ago and loved how it interwove multiple storylines and aspects from both classic Trek and the Next Generation. When I saw John de Lancie narrating, I thought it would be fun to listen to the Audible performance. I didn't see the "Abridged" notation on the item, and only upon listening did I realize that there was a problem. The abridged version only tells a small fraction of the story, and the missing pieces are so great as to render the story line incomprehensible. There's no reason to abridge this either. The original book isn't very large, and there's certainly nothing controversial about the subject matter. I can't imagine what the impetus was. Maybe deLancie's fee was too high? But then why use him as the narrator?

Do yourself a favour and stay away.
