Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation!

In the distant future the entire galaxy has been completely assimilated by Borg and it's king… Locutis! The only hope for the future lies in the past, in the hands of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the starship Enterprise—as Picard faces off against the Borg collective in one final, terrifying and definitive encounter!

Brannon Braga is one of the writers most associated with the Star Trek Franchise. He has written a number of fondly remembered episodes of TNG, including co-writing the two-part series finale, "All Good Things…," for which he won the prestigious Hugo Award. Terry Matalas has written for Star Trek: Enterprise, as well as Terra Nova.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Daniel Alvarez Sep 19, 2012

    Overall, this is definitely a great start to this event. If you want to see these characters again with the popular Borg as the threat, you'll definitely want to pick this up. The writing is smart, and c'mon, it's Next Gen with the Borg, not much else can get better than that. Read Full Review

    It's great to see a strong supporting cast with Capt. William Riker, Data and Seven of Nine. Even with the two timelines the story flows very smooth and keeps you engaged from start to finish. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Sep 21, 2012

    This fan, who still pines for more live action TNG 18 years since TNG went off the air and 10 years since the last TNG movie, is partially sated by Star Trek The Next Generation: Hive. Comic books like this are really about the best things we're going to see out the franchise at this point, beyond the prose novels of course. Read Full Review

    The following score is subjective. If you're no Next Gen fan, you're not giving this book a second glance. For the rest of us: Read Full Review

    Still, as a "TNG" fan, I can't deny getting what I wanted out of this issue. It's perhaps a little too close to the plot of the Voyager episode "Scorpion" for my liking (Borg encounter superior foes, turn to humans for help) but other than that, it was mostly well-executed and, more importantly, instantly familiar. A must-buy for fans of "TNG" who want to see what the old gang's up to. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 19, 2012

    But if the story gets off to a strong start, the artwork is typical Star Trek fare. Which is to say, very bland. Though at least sporting more detail than some Trek comics, Hive suffers from an endless series of stiff, lifeless figures and bland facial work. The characters are generally recognizable in terms of actor likenesses, but there's a lot more to proper comic storytelling than that. Read Full Review
