From critically acclaimed screenwriter, producer, and comics writer Marc Guggenheim comes a brand-new miniseries detailing a never-before-seen adventure from Captain Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise! When a space anomaly thrusts a bounty hunter and her target-a criminal mastermind-into their universe, it's up to Kirk and his crew to stop them from unintentionally starting a war with the Romulans and unleashing a superweapon of foreign tech onto the system. But the strangers from another universe are more familiar than they assume for underneath their helmets are their doppelgangers from an alternate reality!

    From an art perspective, I thoroughly enjoyed Chudakov's character designs and action sequences. The coloring from Alonso felt perfectly aligned with the color tones from The Motion Picture, grounding this story further for Star Trek fans. The arrival of the Enterprise in the opening pages might be my favorite element of the artwork, as the grand entrance felt appropriate for a story set in the film era. Read Full Review

    Star Trek: Echoes #1 is a fast-paced kickoff to the miniseries, with some great action and great moments for the characters. We get to see Kirk come under fire from the upper brass again and the issue ends on a riveting cliffhanger that sets up a potentially very bad dilemma for the Enterprise next issue. Read Full Review

    This new Trek limited series launches with an intriguing story and some snappy maybe too much so dialogue. There are some nice visuals of the familiar original series crew, though the artwork can be a bit inconsistent at times. Read Full Review

    I love Star Trek. Some how Trek manages its various continuity elements better than Star Wars; trying t o explain where Rogue One fits into Star Wars to my wife is painful. Is it this flexibility, handling different time threads or even universes that makes Trek so endearing to so many? I don't have the answer. What I do know is, that despite the off-key elements here, I am all in on another series to boldly go, where we may have been before! Read Full Review

    There's solid footing here, but Echoes needs to find ways to distinguish itself from other similar narratives if it wants to leave a lasting impression. Read Full Review

    It was good to have an alternative to the Collin Lansing stuff. I am not a fan of their work, but I did like the crew they picked out. Back to the OG crew, that's where my heart lies anyway. We get the opposite side of the alternate dimension. Though the costumes are not very imaginative, I did like the ending with the Romulans. Looking forward to the next one.
