A fight for the fate of the universe has broken out in the God City. Up against an enemy ship that easily cracks the Theseus' shields, the crew staves off enemy interlopers while the Orb of Destruction powers up with the Theseus in its scope.

    The mission to protect the God-like beings of the universe gets a lot more personal for members of the Theseus crew as ‘Star Trek' #5 drops some big revelations and catapults the overall story forward toward the upcoming first story-arc conclusion. There is no bit of the Trek franchise that is seemingly going untouched as this creative team pours every bit of love and understanding for this franchise into every single issue, providing the perfect origin point for the just launched sibling series. It's truly a great time to be a Star Trek fan. Read Full Review

    STAR TREK #5 is the strongest issue yet, Alexanders clumsy appearance notwithstanding. Loughridges coloring choices continue to impress as he takes advantage of the possibilities this story and setting offer. Rosanas and Tamayo close up strong character work and exciting space action with equal skill. And the writing for both large scale plot twists and small scale character conflicts will serve to keep readers on their toes. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 14, 2023

    Star Trek #5 is an action-packed frenzy of hand-to-hand combat and tough decisions. Sisko is still reeling from not really knowing who is speaking to him, while it's evident a god-killing weapon is probably bad for everyone. Read this issue knowing the stakes are raised, and even more Star Trek is on the way because of it. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Mar 15, 2023

    This story is not perfect. It makes some narrative leaps forced upon it by the pacing of the comic format. But it does have a massive scope, interesting conflicts and manages to focus on characters we love in the midst of extraordinary circumstances. Getting an original, impactful, forward moving Star Trek story with a great cast and strong, exciting art is a treat. Hopefully it truly is an inspiration for the larger Star Trek line going forward.

    There are twists and turns here that are legitimately surprising and set the stage for much bigger and more dramatic things to come, all while keeping up the high quality of artwork that has been typical of the comic thus far. Read Full Review
