A freak shuttlecraft accident -- and suddenly Captain Kirk and most of his senior officers find themselves adrift in space, with no hope of rescue, no hope of repairing their craft, or restoring communications -- with nothing, in short, but time on their hands.

Time enough for each to tell the story of the Kobayashi Maru -- the Starfleet Academy test given to command cadets. Nominally a tactical exercise, the Kobayashi Maru is in fact a test of character revealed in the choices each cadet makes, and does not make. Download and start listening now!

    " This audiobook is outstanding, for two reasons. Julia Ecklar's novel itself is exceptionally well written and plotted. With a framing story, this book tells the three different perceptions of the Kobayashi Maru test: Chekov, Sulu, and Scott. But, James Doohan is the perfect choice as narrator. He flawlessly mimics voices of all the Enterprise crew. But, the final third of the novel revolving around Scott is the keystone to the story arch. And, no one can characterize Montgomery Scott like the man who owned the role. Flawless. "
