    This issue feels like the beginning of a limited series. Although the characters are different from their Next Generation originals, there is continuity to them that is intriguing.Cates is setting things up for major reveals, and although this is a one-shot, it seems evident that he has more planned, and I can't wait to see what it is.

    If that doesn't capture the TNG ethic, I don't know what else can. His words encapsulate the hopeful futurism that secular humanism wishes to promulgate. A naive idea maybe, but one which we should all aspire to hold. An idea that filled me with awe once a week as a child while watching television with my mother. In a world of alternative facts, scientific knowledge and humanitarian ethics will eventually win the the day. Read Full Review

    IDW and its Deviations one-shots now stand 2-0 thanks to Star Trek Deviations. Donny Cates, Jason Lewis, and Josh Hood completely tear down the history of Trek and in its place build a stirring, action-packed tribute to the core ideals and aspirations of the Federation as well as what it represents to both the characters and the fans that love it. This one-shot could have coasted on its killer central idea, but instead it became something more, just like franchise from which it takes its name. Read Full Review

    This may not be the 'Days of Future Past' for the Next Generation crew, but it's still an enjoyable deviation from the standard Trek tale. "Star Trek: Deviations" #1 Read Full Review

    Two problems hold this issue back. One is that the figure work is frequently stilted, with too much emphasis placed on trying to capture the likenesses of the actors and not enough on clean, clear storytelling, The other is that there simply isn't enough space to tell a complete and satisfying story.
