    Reading this issue, I have come to the realisation that I may have been assimilated. I have enjoyed a number of the Trek books, especially when they have attempted something different; the Academy book for example. I still don't see the point of the photo-story book, but there is always Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations, as someone once said. Back to this book, I was very impressed that Johnson has brought character elements into play rather than action on top of action trap that the recent movie seemed to have fallen. As I am not a huge fan of the movies, I totallymissed any pre-releasepress about this book soI was genuinely surprised at the end. All in, good job all round. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Ian Cullen Oct 20, 2016

    The writing by Mike Johnson is pretty confident and he seems to have the voices of the characters down pretty well. The art byGeorge Caltsoldas and Tony Shasteenworks well in servicing the story. I loved the visual of Uhura in full Vulcan dress. Read Full Review

    Thankfully long gone are the days of newspapers strips and Gold Key comics featuring the original series Star Trek crew. Most Trek writers in the 60's and 70's wrote the books on guess work without watching a single episode of the series that they were based on. This book stays in cannon with its general look and characters. Star Trek Boldly Go #1 is a decent set up with an interesting cliff hanger that has me looking forward to issue #2. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Richard Wanderman Jr. Oct 18, 2016

    I must say, this title surprised me. I was all ready to hate seeing Kirk on a different bridge. I mean, really? Come on? Give a guy a little warning first, buy me a drink or something. But, the combo of Johnson's well-written script, and Caltsoldas & Shasteen's artwork made for a wonderful, and satisfying, read. I think my pull list, much to my wallet's dismay, has just gotten one title larger. Read Full Review

    For those fans who want to see more of the newStar Trek franchise or taste an updated version of a classicTrek threat,Boldly Go's opening arc could be a fun diversion. If there's a downside, it's that IDW's ongoing Abramsverse comics do delve into classic Trek stories and characters alot, so bringing in this particular problem is unoriginal in the broader scope of the book. But in the scope of a single story, this could be a nice distraction for a reader who just wants moreTrek. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Oct 25, 2016

    The introduction of the Borg so early in the revamped continuity certainly leads to some serious problems for Starfleet. A century later, with more advanced technology, Starfleet could barely survive encounters with the cybernetic lifeforms. What hope does Kirk and his generation have? Worth a look. Read Full Review
