Here's why it's an incredibly odd reading: James Doohan, who has proven himself an exceptional narrator across a wide catalog of audiobooks, does a really terrible job with this story. Had he not in fact starred on the actual episode, his inability to render any of the characters with an appreciable level of authenticity could be overlooked. But if you're a fan of the series, here's the challenge: see how long can you endure listening to Data's lines delivered as though he were a confused Dalek. I lasted just a few minutes before logging on to see if there's any way I can get back the very few dollars I spent on this book.
It was amazing to hear James Doohan narrative of this Star Trek The Next Generation episode. A must have.
I have listened to this production twice now and enjoyed it each time. Having been a fan of Star Trek since childhood I found it a little jarring to have familier characters sound different to the TV characters, however the characterisation within the story was true to the characters of the series so I got over that quickly. Well done.
