    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 3, 2013

    The death of 7-of-9 is handled pretty well here, with lots of stuff going on all around the Enterprise, and a pretty lovely character arc for Picard as well. There hasn't really been a whole lot of exploration of what happened during the Locutus incident (for instance, you have to wonder about Picard's lamenting his lack of children in 'Generations,' implying that his lost nephew means the end of the family line... What did they do to his body to make a lack of children such a certainty) during the show proper, and the friendship between the Picard and Annika feels not only natural, but perfectly in character for each. This issue wraps up things in a satisfying manner, leading Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hive #4 to earn 4 out of 5 stars (and 3 additional punctuation marks) overall. If you're even a casual Next Generation fan, you should really give this one a look... Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Mar 4, 2013

    Still, for those of us for whom "Star Trek" means Picard and his crew, it's hard not to be enamoured with this story, which ultimately represents a great opportunity to spend time with the crew one more time. The scope and gravitas of events suggest that this might have even been the "next" TNG movie, had things not gone in a different direction for the franchise. Considered on those terms, it works, and despite Braga's obsession with all things Borg, I'd actually be very interested in seeing a TNG comic with him "showrunning" similar to the way this series was handled. IDW, make it happen! Read Full Review
