Lots of drama this issue. There’s some comedy too, from McCoy and Scotty, but there’s also running around.
Last issue the Enterprise became sentient and grew itself a humanoid body. This issue… well, let’s see, Johnson seems to rip off sections from Star Trek: The Motion Picture and maybe one of the “Next Generation” movie. Not doing connections to them or tie-ins, just ripping off details. The comic’s so disconnected, it doesn’t matter much.
Johnson refuses the let Kirk be the main character and his focus on the events surrounding this android make the issue read too fast. Johnson is cutting from scene to scene without any room for the reader to breath or enjoy.
Farjar’s art is some of his best on the series. Well, some of it. Some of it is really lame, but some of it isn’t bad.
Star Trek remains a series of unfulfilled potential.
