A great start for Voyager sudiobooks

Would you consider the audio edition of Star Trek, Voyager: Caretaker (Adapted) to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the printed version but I aim in doing so.

What did you like best about this story?

Robert Picardo's narration was excellent as he guided the story along. Having seen the televised episode I could clearly 'see' where the characters were in the story and what they were doing. Robert Picardo played the other characters well as well as the computer voice.
I could follow the story with ease with Robert Picardo's narration.

What about Robert Picardo’s performance did you like?

It was clear,succinct expressive and easy to follow. Robert Picardo was clearly keen to do this narration.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I felt joy at the characters surviving and amassing their traditional crew with new characters coming in at intervals. I felt a pang of sympathy for Voyager's crew as they're 70,000 light years from Earth and have a heck of a journey home.

Any additional comments?

This version was adapted from the original screenplay and bits of the original were cut out but it proved to be a very satisfactory audiobook with Robert Picardo narrating.

3 times the charm, never tire of it : )

Mr. Ricardo does a fabulous job with the character voice overs. I have also watched the Caretaker episode 3 times on video, but never seem to tire of the audio book. I got my money's worth from this book.

Narration is awesome

The narrator did wonderful job. With different modulations and tones, it never felt that we are listening to one person.

although I have watched the episode earlier, the scenes became live in my eyes while I listen to it.

Good novelization, didn't really like the narrator

I don't particularly care for Robert Picardo as a narrator. His voice is so distinctly the doctor to me that I didn't really differentiate the characters
