    I personally enjoyed this story arc (issues #6-8). Until the Enterprise A construction is complete, we have an interesting scenario seeing our heroes on a different ship surrounded by new crew mates and new adventures. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - David Lee Martins May 24, 2017

    I enjoyed this issue and continue to enjoy this series. While this particular arc doesn't contain a world-altering event, it has provided nice character moments and is very well written. This is a great title for fans of the Kelvin timeline films and fans of Trek in general. Read Full Review

    Flickering Myth - Villordsutch May 24, 2017

    The conclusion of Murder at Babel isn't as exciting as I expected, whether this is down to IDW misprinting 1of3 or something else occurring in the background we're not privy to, but story arc really feels like it ended far too quickly. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Brian A. Madrid May 24, 2017

    Boldly Go comic series does capture the feel of J.J. Abrams vision from the film but needs a little more plot twist, McCoy and Spock banter and more of Jim Kirk gut instinct space fights. Read Full Review

    Spock's Brain May 30, 2017

    This series hasn't proven to be spectacular, though showing hints that it could be at times in the first arc, but it is solid. I did enjoy this read, although the art isn't up to the level of Tony Shasteen's work on 1-4. Solid, unspectacular, but worth keeping up on just so I can check in with these characters every month.
