Summary

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?

Excellent, except for one thing...

Enjoyed it immensely, the only true issue that I can identitfy is that it was too short. However, because it was recorded live, the noise of the audience could be heard throughout, I personally found their raucious laughter and applause to be somewhat distracting.

Spock's Logic defeats Q's Pride

Spock argues so well, and ( against all the odds) wins against Q, so that Q does the right thing !

Why do we exist

Hearing Spock speak about why the human species is worthy of existence gives me hope

Epic

These two characters are, or rather were, a great comedy duo. I shall miss you Leonard

Great!

Really great piece of theatre! Nimoy and DeLancie have great chemistry together and the plot is wonderfully strange

Interestingly Different

If you like 1:1 debate and quick fire humour pieces mixed with our favourite characters this is a joyful listen.

Still amazing after all these years! loved it!

I listened to this around the time it first came out nearly twenty years ago. I loved Star Trek growing up, and this amazed me that two of my favourite characters could do a cross-over!

All those years later, it's still amazing. The plot, the script, the jokes, and the performances; I love all of it. The verbal jousting is fantastic, even if I still don't understand all the vocabulary. This is a great listen for a feel-good hour with two of the most beloved Star Trek characters. The characters act exactly as you'd expect them to to the situation, and it's nothing short of glorious.

This copy is much clearer, and of better quality than the one i had years ago too, which really added to my enjoyment.

If you can, find and purchase the sequel; it's also very much worth it, in my opinion!

Q the Entertainment

A great purchase for any Star Trek fan, brilliant performances from the late Leonard Nimoy and from John De Lancie who bounce off each other incredibly well. Courtesy of the script written by Cecellia Fannon and the performances of the duo, the comedic timing and gags click just as well as in Nimoy's own Star Trek Movie, The Voyage Home (My favourite Star Trek movie) and that is good company indeed.

Definitely recommend this.

Good fun!

Great characters! It's recorded live, so you hear the audience. If you love Star Trek, this is good fun. It's nothing amazing though. So don't have high expectations.
