Time in the galaxy has stopped running in its normal course. That can mean only one thing -- the Guardian of Forever is malfunctioning. To save the universe, Starfleet Command reunites three of its most legendary figures -- Admiral James T. Kirk, Spock of Vulcan, and Dr. Leonard McCoy -- and sends them on a desperate mission to contact the Guardian, a journey that ultimately takes them 5,000 years into the past. They must find Spock's son Zar once again, and bring him back to their time to telepathically communicate with the Guardian.

But Zar is enmeshed in troubles of his own, and soon Kirk, Spock, and McCoy find themselves in a desperate struggle to save both his and their world. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 9/5/2013

    " I very much enjoyed Crispin's "Yesterday's Son," which introduced Spock's son. "A Time for Yesterday" is the sequel and, if anything, is even better than the first book. I enjoyed it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 2/12/2013

    " Much more detailed and ambitious than "Yesterday's Son". AC Crispin's follow up novel creates a rich and exotic world that is thoroughly explored...and Spock's character has never been handled so well. Extremely satisfying. "

    " read 05.03.88 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wetdryvac | 11/29/2012

    " Again, loved all out of proportion to the content. Very well thought out novel with a couple holes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fairwind | 3/15/2012

    " This book is AMAZING! I love the way this author writes the characters. You can easily tell that she knows and loves them and she does them all justice. And her plot is awesome! I love this idea for a Star Trek book! I was smiling for hours after I finished it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg Lindsay | 3/8/2012

    " Another of my favorite Star Trek books and no surprise that its a book by A.C. Crispin that involves Vulcans. Excellent sequel to Yesterdays Son, I had trouble putting this one down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Pranaitis | 2/27/2012

    " I really enjoyed this adventure and how it forshadowed Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. But I also liked the fact that we finally saw what happened to Spock's son Zar even though Spock himself decides not to view the recording that he made after saving his son and returned back to the Enterprise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Nadolny | 12/21/2011

    " a star trek book, not the best, not the worst "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Plume | 12/14/2011

    " Spock and a kid, take 2. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert Premeaux | 9/25/2011

    " Full of cliches but still good Star Trek. And the Gateway twists are cool. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 7/19/2011

    " Fantastic sequel, much more character depth with a complex saga-like story. Even better than book one, this was a fun trek adventure. Yes it is a bit fan-ish in that it references multiple TOS episodes, but considering who would read the book, it's warranted and not overdone. Thumbs up! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark | 6/16/2011

    " Loved it. I loved finding out how Han Solo was brought into the Star Wars Universe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 6/4/2011

    " A young Han Solo and the adventures of (and resulting from) his first job as a pilot on Ylesia. Crispin perfectly captures the psyche of the young Solo flawlessly, and by the end of the book you can see how he became the man of the Classic Trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 1/31/2011

    " Oh Han Solo, thank God you were not ruined in 1, 2, and 3. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 1/24/2011

    " Loved this book! A great adventure unfolds along with one of the greatest characters in the Star Wars universe. If you're a fan of Star Wars and a fan of Han Solo, you'll want to read this book just to see how it all began. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Max | 11/20/2010

    " Who isn't a fan of Han Solo, the greatest character in the Star Wars Universe. This was his life story - from when he was an orphan living on the streets up to the time he met Luke Skywalker and Ben Kanobi at the Cantina on Mos Eisly. Great Story. Great Trilogy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AJ | 11/18/2010

    " I really enjoyed the early adventures of Han Solo. In this book you learn Han's background and how he became the heroic smuggler we all know and love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anthony | 11/5/2010

    " This is the beginning of Han Solo, gives you some background into how he was raised, and what led him to being a pirate. Good story for the fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabriel | 7/12/2010

    " This was a really good read.
    It was nice to know more abbout Han Solo story.
    A bit sad for this guy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Richard | 4/9/2010

    " I read a lot of Star Wars novels in Jr. High. It took a few dozen books before I realized many of them just weren't all that stellar. Ah, well, I'll squirrel away the memories on the internet and free up a book shelf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/26/2010

    " A little stunted in flow, but then again I never did like Crispin's writing style. Still a decent read, but not cerebral in the least. Also, some contradictions with the later books' plots, although bringing back a few of the lesser known storylines is a nice touch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin | 2/6/2010

    " This review will encompass the entire trilogy, but I found these books greatly interesting as Han Solo was not well explained in the films. These books provide an interesting look at what formed the Han Solo we see in ANH. Definitely recommend any Star Wars fan to read this trilogy. "
