Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through the Mirror

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through the Mirror by Scott TiptonMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Mirror Picard and crew are looking for resources given that the Terran Empire is a little short on them. How does one get them? Incursions into parallel universes (including the 'prime' universe) to collect resources, especially variants of the Enterprise D. This was an interesting story - with

Review: Star Trek: Discovery: Drastic Measures

Star Trek: Discovery: Drastic Measures by Dayton WardMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Rather interesting read - Enjoyed this one much more than the other DSC novels thus far. This was an interesting story about invasive species, refugees, and crimes against humanity that took place 10 years before the pilot episode for DSC. Here we see Georgiou and Lorca as commanders (we even get to see a little

Review: Star Trek The Next Generation: Mirror Broken - Origin of Data

Star Trek The Next Generation: Mirror Broken - Origin of Data by David TiptonMy rating: 3 of 5 stars I got this one as part of a Lootcrate. This comic traces the origin of data in the mirror universe. I do find the borgification of data interesting. I'd love to know more about the borg in the mirror universe in subsequent comics.

Review: Star Trek: Discovery Annual 2018

Star Trek: Discovery Annual 2018 by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this short trek into how Stamets discovered the spore transportation technology and how he got into starfleet. A little bonus at the end you get to see how Tilly comes on-board the Discovery. I got the impression from the TV show that cadets see now part of crews as some sort of work-study but apparently

Review: Fear Itself

Fear Itself by James SwallowMy rating: 3 of 5 stars This book felt very much like a TNG episode in DSC skin.It was a fine book to explore a bit of Saru's background (but I think some things in the book were in conflict with what we've learned of Saru on the show. There are Trek episodes that I put on in the background (they are fine, I just do other things while the show is on), and episodes

Review: Star Trek: Discovery - Succession

Star Trek: Discovery - Succession by Kirsten BeyerMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This comic gives us a glimpse of the mirror universe, specifically what's happening with Mirror Burnham. Georgiou is gone (she's in the prime universe), so people assume she is dead. Someone else is, Michael's "cousin" is on the throne, but there is treachery afoot. In typical mirror universe fashion there are lots

During this year's E3 conference Microsoft announced the next gaming console (Scarlet) which will debut next year (which means that I'll get in in four years from now...).  It will be backwards compatible with the original xbox, the 360, and the One.  In order to achieve that, the Backwards Compatibility team for the Xbox One is stopping their work on the current console in order to focus

Review: Desperate Hours

Desperate Hours by David MackMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Interesting story set one year before the "vulcan hello" pilot for the series. It includes the Enterprise and Pike (and Spock). Having seen Anson Mount as Pike really helps visualize this story in my mind's eye. There are some inconsistencies with the series - e.g., Saru's planet referred to "Kelpia" instead of "Kaminar" and getting the

Review: Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many

Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many by Michael A. MartinMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This was an interesting read, and it definitely adds some more context to STO's Undine arc (which made the Undine Infiltration in the game make much more sense. The book is told from the lens of Jake Sisko who is interviewing many well-known (and not so well-known) characters in the Star Trek universe about
