Amid a ruse gone wrong, Worf and his away team of B'Elanna Torres and Ro Laren find themselves imprisoned by Orion pirates wary of the supposed Maquis separatists. Meanwhile, in the captain's chair of the Defiant, Spock struggles to defend the ship with Lore's musings of chaos in his ear.

    OverallThis was a really strong issue with lots going on. Added to Spock struggling to keep The Defiant flying. We has Worf and his team escaping as well as the Orian Captain narrating an old Orian story about a past Orian leader and a pact that was made with a Gorn Captain. And if that isn't enough we get another report about Worf and Spock from Romulan Agent Sela. The question is. When will we see Sela actually come into this story and what role will she have?

    The creative teams at IDW continue their hot streak of engaging Star Trek books, as both the main Star Trek flagship title and Star Trek: Defiant consistently provide readers with stellar new stories. Although the character line-ups for each book seemed a bit odd at first glance, the character dynamics and interpersonal relationships are well written and seamlessly capture the voices of our favorite heroes. The Countdown to “Day of Blood” continues, and these are stories that you don't want to miss. Read Full Review

    STAR TREK DEFIANT #3 is the most energetic issue yet and the most narratively creative. Cantwells use of the Neeva/Xaucus story adds weight that this issue would not otherwise have and creates a sense of foreboding. The issues relatively minor missteps arent big problems, but they are distracting. However, while this is the weakest of the current STAR TREK series, STAR TREK DEFIANT remains a compelling read.

    Unzueta delivers some beautiful imagery throughout the issue. I love the details in both the characters and their environments and the art beautifully captures the visual style and tone of Star Trek. Read Full Review

    It's right about here Cantwell's script gets lost in the technical side of the Star Trek universe, opting to go the route of being "too Star Trek." Read Full Review
