Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Billboard ..actors Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie are almost single-handedly reviving radio-style dramatizations.
Library Journal
Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie reprise their well-loved Star Trek roles as the Vulcan Mr. Spock and the omnipotent Q in this original program from the actors' production company. In this dramatization, Spock has traveled back in time to warn the citizens of Earth of impending destruction by an asteroid on a collision course with the planet. The inimitable Q appears to warn Spock about giving away too much information, and the two engage in a verbal debate over whether humanity is worth saving. Trekkers will relish the opportunity for fresh material about their favorite characters, wonderfully voiced by the actors themselves. Both Nimoy and de Lancie are magnificent, and fans will appreciate the subtle in-jokes and references to the show's episodes and films. The appreciative live audience joins in the fun by providing cheers and catcalls to accompany the well-placed sound effects and lively musical introduction. Even those who are not necessarily Star Trek fans will enjoy the engaging riddles, compelling acting, and timely plot in this superb recording. Highly recommended for public libraries.--Leah Sparks, Bowie P.L., MD Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
