    I have to admit. I was late to reading and reviewing this issue because of a lot of real life stuff getting in the way, but am glad I found the time because this issue deserves a look. Especially if you are fan that wants to learn some of Jaylah's backstory. Read Full Review

    All in all this is a pretty decent stand alone book. Mike Johnson had a ton of information to squeeze in to satisfy the the mandate of a characters complete back story. He also left plenty of room to revisit Jaylah's youth to weave in some more adventures and really flush out her species. Through out this entire Boldly Go run, I am really enjoying the artists interpretation of all the different races in the Star Trek universe. I am looking forward to more! Read Full Review

    I love this series! I thought "Star Trek Beyond" was the best of the new trilogy, and I'm psyched that I get to follow their adventures every month. As a big fan of the movie, it goes without saying that I was excited to see Jaylah enter the series; I'm not sure if the structure of this story robs a bit of suspense from it, or if it all kind of reverse builds to an awesome final page that wouldn't have the same impact if the story were told chronologically. Probably the latter, because I loved that last page. This title is a must for fans of Star Trek, or just fans of good comics.
