Publisher's Summary

The spectacular conclusion to the thrilling double-sized adventure! Like an unstoppable cosmic storm, the dreaded Genesis Wave continues to sweep across the Alpha Quadrant, transforming entire planets on a molecular level and threatening entire civilizations with extinction. Based on the long-hidden scientific secrets of Dr. Carol Marcus, who has mysteriously disappeared, the wave of mutagenic protomatter seems to have come from nowhere, posing a cataclysmic menace to life as we know it.
To combat the rushing terror of the wave, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise have been forced into an uneasy alliance with both the Klingons and the Romulan Empire, both of whom may crave the forbidden secrets of the Genesis technology for themselves. The finest engineers of three civilizations, including Geordi La Forge and his long-lost love, Dr. Leah Brahms, must race against time to devise some way of halting the deadly wave before yet another world is transformed into something entirely alien and unrecognizable.
But even if, against all odds, the Genesis Wave can be defeated, Picard and his potentially treacherous allies must still confront the greater mystery of what unknown intelligence dared to launch the wave against an unsuspecting galaxy - and for what malevolent purpose...

This is a great follow up & sequel to Star Trek II & III in the Next Generation timeline. Action, mystery, suspense, & wonderful characters. Tim Russ does a great job of narration.

One of the best Trek Books


Excellent! This, and the Kann story, are the two best audio books on Star Trek.
Get book 1 and 2. Book 3, however, is your choice.
Having only a superficial relation to the first two books, it still tells a good story. It
seems like it was made a "Part 3" because it would have been difficult to sell otherwise.
It's basically the Ringo Star of the band. Get Book 3, if you have to have the complete set, but
the second book wraps up everything it needed to wrap up.

Good story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the first two Genesis Wave books are good. The first taking a bit to get going but still interesting. The third Genesis Wave is very good but is not a a continuation of the first two.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lieutenant Commander and Chief Engineer,
Geordi La Forge. His relationship with the two women.
His relationship with Data, and his 'saving the day' with coming up with solution to diverting the Genesis Wave.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Good when travelling. Makes waiting in queues, shopping, or ironing less boring.

Any additional comments?

I would thoroughly recommend this book and the others in the series...

Great for any Trekkie or Trekker

Good story, excellent narrator (he's the actor who played Tuvok in Voyager), good performance from all other voice actors and great traditional Star Trek sound effects to bring it all to life. Would highly recommend - can't wait to start listening to the conclusion!!!!
