Review: The Maquis

The Maquis by R.A. JonesMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This is one of those stories that I could see being adapted to a DS9 episode. Bashir takes some well deserved R&R to Risa (the number of days he takes off seems ridiculously low, but whatever), but he gets abducted by the Maquis because they need a doctor. Of course, this isn't the real reason, one Maquis is trying to get her relative

Review: Star Trek Deep Space Nine - Worf Special #0 : Bonds of Honor

Star Trek Deep Space Nine - Worf Special #0 : Bonds of Honor by Dan MishkinMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad main story: Worf has been accused of sabotage on Starbase 113. Sisko is instructed by Admiral Nechayev that Worf must be arrested immediately upon his return to the station. Instead of returning directly, Worf follows another vessel, the one that left immediately before him. He trails

Review: Star Trek: Picard - Countdown

Star Trek: Picard - Countdown by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I think this was a good companion to the Last Best Hope novel.  This comic follows Picard on another Romulan colony world that needs evacuation, only to discover that the Romulans have only given estimates for Romulan beings to be evacuated, not the additional 5 million people of the native sentient species that

Review: Star Trek Sonderband 06. The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine. N Vector

Star Trek Sonderband 06. The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine. N Vector by K.W. JeterMy rating: 3 of 5 stars This was not a horrible story.  It's a story set after the events of the DS9 finale.  There is Romulan scientist that has discovered a "viroid" that can take over someone (or something inorganic).  First O'Brien is implicated for sabotage (even though he was in at Starfleet

Review: The Last Best Hope

The Last Best Hope by Una McCormackMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This is a prequel novel that takes place before the first season of Star Trek: Picard.  The story shows us the other side of the preparations to save Romulans (and Remans?) from their fates which are doomed due to the Romulan Star going supernova.  I was hoping for some more congruence between the ST09 Countdown comics

Some more STO accolades

I've been saving this post and keeping track of accolades I earned since the last time I posted about my accolade hunt in Star Trek Online.  Since a few of them are now collected - here is what I've earned. These are in the order I got them (2019-2020).Time BanditThis was one of the few Red Alert accolades I was missing.  To earn this one you need to save the entire cargo fleet from being

Review: Star Trek Blood & Honor

Star Trek Blood & Honor by Mark LernardMy rating: 4 of 5 stars A good story that takes place early on in DS9's run (Sisko is still a commander). It's interesting to see a Romulan-Bajoran cooperative that seems to start to take place. I wish we had seen more Romulans in the actual show. Anyway - an artefact is found in the gamma quadrant, quite a few want it, and it's assumed that it

Review: Double Time

Double Time by Peter DavidMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Not a bad story. It involves the timey-whimeyness of time-travel, and a crew that I am not all that familiar with, but connector characters like the timeship Relativity and Captain Braxton make an appearance which make it feel more connected to other parts of Trek. I was way more excited that I probably should be when I turned the page and

Review: The Looking Glass War

The Looking Glass War by Mike W. BarrMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This was an interesting mirror universe (but not THAT mirror universe) story. Mirror Odo is murdered and this kicks off an armed conflict between the dominion and the federation. Someone comes from the mirror universe to enlist Odo-prime's help to stop the war, and to unmask the murdered. Who dunnit?View all my reviews

Review: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, The Celebrity Series, The Rules Of Diplomacy #1

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, The Celebrity Series, The Rules Of Diplomacy #1 by Aron EisenbergMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This is more of a review for the collected story (not just #1).  I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this much, but it was a rather fun tale of Nog playing host to a Klingon ambassador's kid (an ambassador in training?) and showing him around Ferengi culture on DS9. Not

Review: The City on the Edge of Forever #5

The City on the Edge of Forever #5 by Harlan EllisonMy rating: 5 of 5 stars More of a review for the entire series than just this one issue. Interesting story. I don't recall if in the episode the substance abuse was so prevalent (or even a factor at all). It's interesting to see the difference between the TV show (guardian of forever/gateway) vs the comic as far as the time travel mechanic

Review: Star Trek: Gold Key Archives, Volume 5

Star Trek: Gold Key Archives, Volume 5 by Arnold DrakeMy rating: 2 of 5 stars Not bad, if you consider that it's a product of its time. The "Death of a Star" story reminded me a bit of elements of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda with the whole avator of the sun this :) View all my reviews

Star Trek: Gold Key Archives, Volume 4 by Arnold DrakeMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Mummies, forgotten asteroids, and brain dumps into cylon-like bodies. Yup. It's more 60s Star Trek comics! View all my reviews

Review: Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 3

Star Trek: Gold Key Archives Volume 3 by Len WeinMy rating: 2 of 5 stars Definitely another product of its time. I did enjoy the camp-factor a bit, but it was definitely a skim-read to get a sense of the story instead of a deeper read, taking in more details like the drawings and inking. There is something interesting in reading this now, as a retro-futurist type of comic. Kirk gets cloned
