Summary

Summary

SULU MUST QUIET A WORLD ON THE BRINK OF CIVIL WAR Cacophony, the second Star Trek adventure created solely for audio, takes off in an explosion of ambisonic 3-D sound for the most elaborate Star Trek audio program ever. On the planet Stentor, silence is not only golden, it is the key to maintaining peace in a world devistated by a great war. But that calm is shattered when a group known as the Ghazi create a new technology that intercepts old Earth radio signals and rebroadcasts them across the planet--each day the din growing ever more deafening. When Captain Sulu and the crew of the U.S.S. Excelsior are summoned to investigate sub-space interference emanating from Stentor, Sulu and his communications officer Terra Spiro discover that the Ghazi actually believe the signals are voices of the gods. Now, Sulu must somehow convince the Ghazi--without violating the prime directive--that the transmissions are not a divine voice before violence erupts on Stentor once again.


Summary

In order to keep peace in a world that could be easy destroyed by a civil war, Captain Sulu and the crew of the U.S.S. Excelsior must try their hardest to stop the Ghazi from broadcasting old Earth radio signals across the planet, which will destroy a once peaceful planet. Unfortunately the Ghazi believe that the old signals are voices from the gods, and Sulu and the crew must convince them otherwise.
