Convinced that the only hope to prevent planetary genocide lies in understanding how the power of the gods is being harvested, Captain Worf and first officer Spock set the stolen Defiant on course to break into a highly guarded Section 31 outpost to recruit the highest computing mind in the galaxy-Lore!

    Overall. There is a lot of fun to be had with these characters and I'm really enjoying the story so far. Especially given how delicate Worf's crew seems to be. I look forward to seeing how things pan out in the next issue. Read Full Review

    It's not often the second issue in a story arc beats the first, but Star Trek: Defiant #2 does so in spades. Now that the crew is established, Cantwell and Unzueta are showing us how fun this crew can be together in a fast-paced thrill ride of a series. Read Full Review

    This issue continues to show what this line and story could do. It's faithful to the spirit of the universe, but a wholly unique story. I can't wait for more. Read Full Review

    Not having to include as much exposition gives Cantwell more room for character interaction and development. Aside from questions about Lore, everyone in the issue is immediately believable. Ro and Belanna are definitely a highlight. The art team continues to develop this world as well, reinforcing its separation from the series that spawned it. STAR TREK DEFIANT #2 is a strong issue that builds on and improves from the foundation built in the first issue. Read Full Review

    Uzueta delivers some great visuals throughout the issue. The characters have a hard edge visually which works for the tone of the story and I love the environments as well. Read Full Review

    Building on last month's debut issue, Star Trek: Defiant #2 is a triumph of storytelling within the Trek universe. Masterfully written and exceptionally well rendered, Defiant is giving the main Trek series a run for its money. Read Full Review
