This book kept me interested into the very end. I am not a person who picks apart a book on its technical details but by the pure enjoyment of the read. I am sure there are parts which are not up to the other Star Trek writes, but I still enjoyed it considerably. Having it narrated by William Shatner was a bonus and added to the books quality. I will be listening too all the books in this series.

and it is wince-inducing. This is a sub-par Star Trek novel. In fact it sounds like a slightly longer version of fanfic that you can find online. The plot is thin and there is zero character development.
It gets two stars because it's amusing to here Shatner give voice to Data.

In many ways I get the feeling that Shatner wrote this book because he couldn't cope with the idea of a star trek universe without Kirk. Kirk is the out and out hero in this book and while most of our other favourite characters appear, this is a kirk story.
The book shares Shatner's bombastic sensibility and addresses many of the failings of the 'generations' film. The book is a no holes barred adventure and is has a unique charm. If you enjoy Shatner's sense of humour and grandiosity you will like this.

Where does Star Trek: The Return (Adapted) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is one of the better Star Trek audio books out there - but I just wish this was the full, unabridged, version...! It's an old recording now (roughly 10 years old - coming out not long after the Star Trek: Generations film, and the Ashes Of Eden book preceding it) - but it stands up well!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Spock - because his character's backstory managed to put a completely unexpected perspective on the closing parts of the story!
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The scene where Kirk and Picard meet again!
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me smile as I listened - reminding me of the golden days of Star Trek!
