The battle of wits and logic is joined again!

Cover summaryEdit

From the box
Following their debate over the fate of mankind, Spock and Q continue their discussions over a meal. After dining, the two return to the stage to recount their repast, which included encounters with several of Spock's former shipmates.
However, at the moment the two verbal sparring partners shake hands, a power surge places them in total darkness. Suddenly, Spock and Q are no longer on stage, but somewhere in deep space.
As they struggle to determine what has happened, a curious personality change takes hold. Spock is overcome with giddy delight. Q is much more serious, even... logical.
Masterfully performed by Leonard Nimoy and John de Lancie, Star Trek® Spock vs. Q: The Sequel is a fascinating and often hilarious role reversal that reveals previously unknown sides of Spock and Q. It is a program so original it could only come from Alien Voices®.

Background informationEdit

In the cover art, Spock and Q are sitting on a rock on the surface of the asteroid, facing away from each other. Q is facing left, wearing the standard 2350s-2370s Starfleet uniform with a 2360s-style combadge. No rank pips are visible. Spock is facing right and once again wearing his Starfleet uniform and wrist communicator from Star Trek: The Motion Picture, even though in the story, he is supposed to be his much older ambassadorial self.
