    COMICON - Scott Redmond Oct 28, 2022

    'Star Trek' had a lot of expectations and hype surrounding it before the title even launched, but with just the first issue it meets and exceeds them very easily. This is a complete love letter to not just Star Trek and its legacy, but all the people and things that have been part of the franchise for almost sixty years. The future of Star Trek is very very bright. Read Full Review

    IDW has done stellar work with his Star Trek comics for years, but with Star Trek #1, it feels like they're finally reaching their full potential. It feels like the beginning of something special. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Theron Couch Oct 27, 2022

    Star Trek #1 is a solid introduction to what looks to be an ambitious story. Sisko is the perfect character to use to explore a story involving advanced godlike beings. And the crew around him, based on the characters development in their various series, should offer a variety of viewpoints. Its a great starting point from which to boldly go. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 25, 2022

    Star Trek #1 is a fantastic opening issue, establishing its robust cast, not skimping on fan-favorite characters, and establishing a new adventure that feels worthy of TV, let alone a comic series. Given the high expectations as well as the many moving parts to kick off this adventure, this is a fabulous opening issue hardcore Star Trek fans won't want to miss. Read Full Review

    Benjamin Sisko makes his long-awaited return to the Star Trek universe in this issue. But the captain doesn't have much time to celebrate much to readers' chagrin. There's a menace out in space, and Sisko needs to assemble an all-star crew to deal with it. Unfortunately, some inconsistent artwork gets in the way of a strong start to this ongoing series.

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Oct 26, 2022

    This book is based on an interesting idea; who is killing the Gods of the Star Trek universe. Gods and religion particularly have been fertile ground for Trek in the past, for good and bad. This is an ongoing series with a quest at its core. As with every book with a quest as its core keeping that interest going can be a bit of hard slog. "Where no one has gone before' at least has the idea of new things. Sure, I guess there will still be the new "no one gone before as the crew looks to save the creators. Read Full Review

    I really like the idea of combining all of the shows into one. I'm not sure how the timeline works with Scotty. He doesn't look old enough to be on the ship with the others. Bones was quite decrepit when he visited Picard's Enterprise. We'll give them a pass for that one. At least they know their Deep Space Nine lore and know that Sisko ascended. I'm looking forward to seeing them all interact. That alone is worth the read.

    Solid first issue, but Lanzing and Kelly don't quite manage to mesh characters from four different shows together with instant ease. Sisko is spot on, but the interactions between characters who have never met feel off. And what's with those new uniforms?

    I've read worse, but this is quite slow moving and the characterisation feels a little off in places. It also suffers from having to bring in characters from multiple Star Trek series for no good reason other than fans will (they assume) like it.

    The art is serviceable, but character likenesses are not very strong. Lanzing and Kelly's Star Trek: Year Five series handled those much better.

    Filled with continuity errors, strange dialogue, and an incredibly fan servicey, vacuous plot.

    It’s just ok. The story itself is intriguing but the art is terrible and the dialog tries so hard to be clever that it just comes across as contrived
