Review: Star Trek No. 1 (2022)

I was pretty excited to get my hands, well it’s digital so eyes, on this issue. When I shared the news, I got some ass-hat edge-lord who thinks that pissing in someone else’s Cheerios is going to make his somehow taste better, say something smarmy that I just shrugged off. Anyhow, that didn’t ruin my anticipation for this book. Now, when I read comics, I skim them. Good art makes me linger a bit longer, but I don’t get too deep into the story. This one I read for the story and found the art to be perfect representation of the characters. Deep Space Nine ended with a loose thread where Captain Benjamin Sisko was taken to exist with the wormhole aliens that the Bajoran’s called the “Prophets”. This was an open-ended ending that could have been picked up at any point. Now, decades later I get my desire for Ben’s continued adventures. Nothing seems to be forced or pigeon-hold into the story. I do wonder why we had to get new uniform designs, don’t get me wrong… I dig the designs, but it seems to distract from the story. We get to see some familiar beings and entities, some of which were straight out of left field, and I appreciated the inclusions. The new ship is also a bit much, I would have preferred an updated Defiant class vessel, but it may grow on me. I can recommend this for Star Trek fans, non-fans will be treated to a great story but there’re a bit of past references that won’t mean much to the casual, or un-initiated. This one gets a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.
