Publisher's Summary

A restless, passionate Enterprise crew is called to Aleph Prime, where a demented physicist and murderer, Georges Mordreaux, must be transported to Rehabilitation Colony Seven. Incredibly, despite heavy security, Mordreaux breaks loose on board - and fatally guns down Captain Kirk! Suddenly the Enterprise is fighting for its life, while Spock realizes that Mordreaux is only part of a far more dangerous phenomenon. Mordreaux's past experiments have created alternate realities in the present, and known existence is beginning to unravel. Now Spock must count on Mordreaux himself to help undo what has already been done - and to bring Kirk back from the dead.

A good story spoiled by the patchy narration

I love Star Trek:TOS and I've read some of Vonda McIntyre's books before but this was my first ST audiobook. George Takei narrates the bulk of the story and Leonard Nimoy narrates brief log entries.
Let me say first that I admire George Takei enormously as a human being, and I'd certainly listen to him read, say, an autobiography, but he cannot do a Scottish accent to save his life. So (as a Scot) I cringed whenever he narrated Scotty's dialogue. Another character, Ian Brathwaite, well, I'm not sure what accent he was supposed to have as it veered between Scottish, French and - perhaps - German.
It's such a shame because George Takei, reading as himself, has a lovely and pleasant to listen to voice, and in fact is at his best when voicing Dr McCoy's dialogue. The story for me was lost sadly under the cringe factor of the patchy narration and I had to persevere to the end rather than enjoy the listening experience.
