Publisher's Summary

On a planet code-named Gateway stands a mysterious portal to the past, the Guardian of Forever. Spock, Kirk, and McCoy have just returned from a voyage through the gateway with a young man named Zar - Spock's own son from ancient Sarpeidon! But while Spock and the brilliant, primitive youth try to bridge a gap of centuries and cultures, Gateway is seized by the Romulans. The Enterprise must destroy the planet rather than let the Romulans use the past as a weapon - and Kirk has 12 hours to find a way out. Only Spock and Zar have any chance of penetrating the Romulan forces on Gateway. Suddenly, father and son are plunged into a fierce fight for their lives - and a battle to keep the Romulans from fatally changing the past! Featuring a dramatic reading by Leonard Nimoy and James Doohan, and enhanced with sound effects and an original score! For more Trek titles, browse our special Star Trek section!

Star trek TOS

This was a great book, and great follow up book, I really wish they could've made these as special episode. It would have been great. I recommend this book and the follow up.

about what I expected

I enjoyed hearing James Doohan and Leonard Nimoy perform this quasi audio drama. The story was only so-so. I guess my biggest problem is that so many of these canon adjacent stories are just kind of weak. Since nothing permanent is ever allowed to happen to any of the main characters, nothing of consequence ever actually happens. It leaves the story toothless. Additionally, the imitation Star Trek synthesizer score is just plain painful to listen to. It's affordable comfort food, but don't have high expectations for character development or plot.
