In reviewing the audio version of of the Alan Dean Foster adaptation, TrekMovie’s John Tenuto said that Quinto was "best audio book narrator in the history of Star Trek", high praise indeed. Here is a sample clips from the audio book:

Dang! I already have the audio book, but I have not had time to listen to the first disc yet!

2. ClassicTrek - June 5, 2009

Damn, competition not open to United Kingdom residents. Grrrrrrrrr


3. Will - June 5, 2009

May I please have the autographed copy now? :)


#3, no, you may not.

5. Stan Wingston - June 5, 2009

Um I find the Tyler Perry impersonation in that clip vaguely offensive…

6. Aqua - June 5, 2009

An audio version of a bad book with akward dialogue, I’ll pass.

7. Valenti - June 5, 2009

Shame I live in the Netherlands, lol.

But damn, ZQ is good.

8. The Excelsior Looked Cool - June 5, 2009

Excuse me? What I hear is an audio version of a good book with good dialogue…which, I think, is taken straight from the movie.

9. ster julie - June 5, 2009

8. Well, the dialogue doesn’t match the movie. It’s maybe 85% the same, but there were ad libs and changes during filming that were not in the script.

I hear that ZQ absolutely ROCKS in the 8 1/2 hrs of reading, changing his voice to handle all the characters. You can hear it in the sample above.

I can’t wait to win! (<-Power of positive thinking at work!)

10. James "Tiberieus" Pewterschmidt - June 5, 2009

I already have it…and it’s very enjoyable!

11. SPB - June 5, 2009

The dialogue is Shakespeare compared to the GOD-AWFUL descriptive writing by Alan Dean Foster. Laughably bad. Like, “teenage fan fiction” bad.

12. MC1 Doug - June 5, 2009

Zack Quinto does a phenomenal job reading the book, and does a great job at portraying the voices of the other actors, especially Scotty!!!

I listened to the CDs in my car over the course of two weeks.

Cool contest, Anthony.

13. AJ - June 5, 2009

I used to buy some of the older Trek books on cassette, and they would have music and some audio effects. Does his one do that, or is it just Zack Yakkin’?

Um I find the Tyler Perry impersonation in that clip vaguely offensive…

You’re not alone, I find a lot of things involving Tyler Perry offensive too. ;)

15. cagmar - June 6, 2009

Yay! Open to Canadians. Finally! Thank you,!

16. Gary Neumann - June 6, 2009

Bleh, now I can’t participate, this is so unfair!!! At least I won a local Star Trek constest here in venezuela :-(

17. Christine - June 6, 2009

I might look into this.

Being both a Trekkie and a book junkie.

18. Daoud - June 6, 2009

Superb clip. Thanks!

19. Beth - June 6, 2009

I entered the contest – and of course, I hope to win! My husband is currently reading the book. He thinks it is awesome! Thanks for running the contest!
