    Unfortunately, the art falls more in line with what I've come to expect from Star Trek comics. Stephen Thompson makes the same mistake a lot of artists do on licensed properties like this. He struggles to accurately capture the likenesses of the "actors" at the expense of everything else. Given that most of the characters in New Frontier never even appeared in the television shows, but only on dust jacket covers, this seems like a futile act to me. I also wish IDW had hired someone else to ink Thompson's art. Frankly, the inking in this issue is messy and really detracts from what should have been a shining example of how to do Star Trek comics right. This mini-series is already so close to greatness, and I'd really like to see it get there before the end. Read Full Review
