He script and decided to read itAlthough I njoyed it it s not nearly as good as the movie I m guessing it was based on the script not the actual final movie and there are a fair amount of differences It did Student Research Projects in Calculus explain some things Forxample in the book Scotty knows the guy at the Plexiglass company invented transparent aluminum so he s not worried about altering the timeline However we still didn t get an xplanation of

How Exactly Sulu Talked That 
exactly Sulu talked that into loaning him his helicopterThe thing I liked least about the book is that the space probe is actually intentionally trying to get rid of life on Earth so it can start over In the movie the space probe has no harmful intentions Also poor Chekov doesn t get to say his greatest line one of the greatest lines in all of Star Trek nu cle ar wesselsIn any vent reading the book prompted me to watch this great movie for the 100th or so time Glad I read it won t be keeping it I happened to I read it won t be keeping it I happened to this book at a thrift store for 25 cents along with three other book adaptations of the first three original Star Trek movies This particular one happens to by my favorite and the book did not disappoint In fact it gave a lot of helpful background on the travelling probe answered some lingering uestions I had about Saavik gave further xplanation about Spock and McCoy s recovery from fal tor pan and stayed true to the classic lines from the various San Francisco scenes although sadly it did not include Chekov s line about nuclear wes sels I m not sure I d say this particular book was better than the movie but it was definitely just as good Spock has been taken back to Vulcan to have his Katra returned to where it belongs and Kirk and the crew are preparing to return to Earth in their captured Bird of Prey to face charges During the return trip subspace is flooded with numerous signals and noise do not return to Earth save yourselves Of course Kirk is not going to sit back and watch the fireworks and when Spock identifies the mysterious signal being aimed at Earth from a huge construct in orbit Kirk grasps at the slim chance that time travel could provide a solution to saving the planet one time They slingshot around the sun and find themselves in San Fransico of 1996 and surprisingly they don t look totally out of place We then get a clean actiondrama which fully xploits the comedic opportunities for the fish out of water as well as the ongoing dynamic between the crew with spice added thanks to Spock and McCoy slowly recovering themselves The novel of course as with many novelisations builds upon the theatrical narrative added detail to scenes and characters We didn t really need to know so much about the refuse collector and the writing of his novel but it added so much to the basic premise I also preferred the novel clearly stating that the inventor of transparent aluminium was the character who got access to the formula rather than Scotty being vague when arguing for the transaction with McCoyThe Voyage Home is in many ways the most popular Star Trek movie due to it s A Heart of Stone encompassing nature the movie brought people to the cinema who were never before that interested in Trek or scifi in general That said for the same reason the movie does split the hardcore fanbase so the novelisation will probably do the same yet I think the added content moves the story into scifi thennvironmental and maybe hits the target often for those who prefer Trek to be made in a certain way Can a book be better than the movie it s based on In this caseyes. Space probe Suddenly Kirk Spock McCoy and the rest of the crew must journey back through time to twentieth century Earth to solve the mystery of the probe. .
The most disappointing of Ms McIntyre s Star Trek movie novelizations She s obviously losing interest by this point and you can see it in her inability to have as much fun with the plot and the character material as the film s actors and director This was a light comedic triumphant moviebut Ms McIntyre seems determined to downplay verything and not join in with the fun Boo Published in 1986 by Simon SchusterRead by Leonard Nimoy and George TakeiDuration 90 minutesI picked this audiobook up at a clearance book sale in the who s going to want this stuff section Mostly it was serious junk Educational software that only operates on apple iie vhs copies only operates on Apple IIe VHS copies movies that I ve never heard of starring some guy that was on some TV show that I barely remember and DVDs of some pastor s sermons on any number of topics still in the plastic And suddenly I find a memory from my high school and college years a genuine Star Trek audiobook from 1986on audiocassette Andnarrated by George Takei and Leonard Nimoy So I scuttle out of there like I ve found a gold bar and pop it in car s cassette player one of the advantages of having a 12 year old car is that it has a multimedia CD and cassette stereo systemBack in the day audiobooks were almost always abridged sometimes criminally This 274 book is abridged to a mere 90 minutes To be honest if it weren t for my faded memories of the movie I don t ven know if there is Language and Linguistics enough plot here to tell the storyBut Injoyed it immenselyRead at 25 stars I feel bad about writing a bad review but to be fair it was awful 1 star because the movie is one of my all time favorites 1 star because I listened to George Takei and he is amazing and I will listen to ANYTHING he reads So really this book is a 05Just watch the movie because the book is not worth the paper it is printed on I know that movie adaptations are tough I feel for the author but someone should have stopped this book before it went to print why must veryone be such downers this WAS fun sure somber than the movie at parts but on what planet does a little seriousness mean things can t still be fun geezI personally really loved how this dug into the aftermath of spock s resurrection and his and mccoy s bond from the katra transfer the real s resurrection and his and mccoy s bond from the katra transfer the real of that was the one thing from the movie that disappointed me most the bits that were added or maybe weren t I d have to rewatch if they could just be descriptions of actual acting but I m thinking abt the spock sue head tilt bones does at one point where there s a grey area between their characters were well done and it brought all that to an Love Is a Fairy Tale emotionalcharacter driven conclusion that the film just doesn tI also thought the traveler stuff was interesting if in anxtra canonical way like I think it s funny that the movie never bothers to "get into it but i also like this "into it but I also like this and they coexist in my mind not one usurping the other same with the other one or two off characters like the other captains the garbagemen Promise at Dawn etcplus gillian s introspective Mood triggered by a bruce springsteen song representation mattersI agree the characterization of sulu is a bit weird and if that s to jive w mcintyre s other novelizations I understand but yeah it didn t make much sense here sulu is very cool and very handsome and fun let him be cool and handsome and funkeaton why have you shelved this with your university readings well friends that s because I read it for university how onarth well when you re a teacher s pet they let you do basically whatever you want.
