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.

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!!!!
