As the end of the twentieth century nears, an asteroid is hurtling toward Earth. When it hits, the impact will result in the end of all life on the planet.
Ambassador Spock travels back in time to subtly warn Earth’s inhabitants of impending doom while calling into question humanity’s priorities. However, before the truth is told, the all powerful being Q appears and reminds Spock that he is prohibited from interfering in Earth’s history. Besides, Q doesn’t see mankind as something worth saving.
This initial encounter between the two legendary characters explodes into a battle of wits as Spock cleverly befuddles Q with his own words. As barbs are exchanged, and humanity’s flaws and wonders are laid bare, Spock’s logic just may convince Q that humans are indeed a species worthy of salvation, but will he be too late?
In Spock vs. Q, Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie again bring their characters to glorious life in the most lively and entertaining debate since Nixon vs. Kennedy. Recorded in front of a live audience, Spock vs. Q is a stirring audio program that could only come from Alien Voices.
This was so much fun! If you’ve been following me for any amount of time then you know I’m a Trekkie and quite possible that Spock is my favorite character. I’ve been having fun reading some of the Trek books that I’ve been hoarding for the past few years. While searching through the books I might want to add to my collection I came across this little gem featuring my two favorite characters, Spock and Q. It is as wonderful as I expected it to be.
The story is only available in audio format and appears to have been recorded at a convention by the actors themselves. The performance was quite short, only lasting for an hour, perfect for my exercise session on the treadmill. The story is clever and brings us these two iconic characters with all their wit and personality that we love. If you are a fan of the franchise then I would encourage you to get your hands on this recording. I seriously doubt that you will be disappointed.
My Rating:5 Stars
