    For anyone who is a fan of Star Trek or Planet of the Apes, and especially for fans of both, shake off any hesitation, skepticism, or eyebrow raising you may have about this crossover and pick up this book. It's fun, well written, and most importantly, the spirit of each series is well represented. I'm eager to see how the story plays out and if it's as enjoyable as the first couple issues, I have no doubt that it will be great. Though Dr. Zaius may warn of heresy, I know Mr. Spock would say that reading this book is the logical thing to do. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, this issue has a tendency to get bogged down in pointless exposition as the writers rehash the nature of Ape society, Starfleet politics and the prime Directive, and all sorts of background information that most people reading this comic are probably already plenty familiar with.

    The archeological site in POTA was demolished at the end of the film, so I don't understand why it's still around in this comic. I get the sense that the Scott Tipton is a Star Trek fan first and a POTA fan second. Taylor wasn't actively seeking a way to unleash genocide on the apes like he is in this comic. The back matter further seeks to antagonist POTA fans, emphasizing how optimistic Star Trek was and how pessimistic and depressing POTA was; even going as far as accusing Taylor with the intent to rape the female astronaut in his original crew. I devoured this comic intently in the moment, but found it left a nasty taste in my mouth afterwards, I hope the next issue improves on this direction.
