    Either way. It will be intriguing to see where David and Scott Tipton will take this story in the next issue. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 19, 2020

    Greg Scott employs a dark, film noir sensibility to the art in this issue and that works with both the tone and the themes of the issue. I like many of the panels and how they bathe characters in shadow in order to help showcase emotion. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Duna Haller Sep 1, 2020

    ReviewThis comic keeps presenting a master exercise in storytelling. From page one, it will get you right into it with the dialogue of beloved characters like Quark or Worf, that combines gracefully with the realist noir art to give you the exact impression of a discarded episode flowing through the pages.

    There's something interesting buried underneath all of this as it becomes increasingly clear that there is a conspiracy at play. Unfortunately, the presentation and execution are too messy to make it enjoyable. Read Full Review
