    The story concerning the Borg technology was the dominant thread in this book. This makes me wonder if the Dog is going to be used in some way for the Federation's fight with the Dominion. Read Full Review

    Final ThoughtsThere is something about having a dog on Deep Space Nine that is both alien and fulfilling. The show was frequently a dark one, and something as joy-giving as a dog and a holographic dog park at first seems out of place. But it adds such a new flavor to the setting and the characters that the Borg plot almost seems unnecessary. But whether reading the issue for Latinum or the Borg, STAR TREK DEEP SPACE NINE: THE DOG OF WAR #1 is a start to what looks to be a fun Star Trek outing. Read Full Review

    Some solid writing isn't enough to save head-scratchingly inconsistent artwork. What should be a romp with a dog on a space station instead is an exercise in understanding what you're looking at. Oddly enough, some panels are magnificent while others are just sloppy. Read Full Review

    I wish the book had a slightly stronger hook, especially regarding why the dog, but it's not a bad start. Read Full Review
