    While the first issue did a lot of story setup, this issue featured a lot of action as the story quickly kicks into high gear. Guggenheim's pacing was spot on and couldn't have been any better if he tried. The dialogue between Alternate Uhura and Kirk on the bridge was a highlight, leading to the kidnapping plan and pursuit of Akris. Spock's aversion to dancing was truly the best line in the issue, and I dare you not to laugh out loud at this discussion. I also appreciated the commentary on this era's Starfleet uniform, as it will surely resonate with the fans. The art continues to be equally as impressive, as Chudakov's character designs for the TMP era are filled with nuance and flair. Alonso's color choices compliment this vibrant era, expertly adding depth to the TMP adventure.  Read Full Review

    It will be great to see the alternate universe that General Uhura and Akris come from in a future issue. But given that the run is only for five issues. I'm not sure if Guggenheim will have enough room to cover that. But if this were to become an ongoing Star Trek series that takes place between STMP and Wrath of Khan. Am pretty sure that Guggenheim and some other writers and artists could get plenty of mileage out of that. Read Full Review

    While it's nice that this limited series shines the spotlight on secondary characters, the artwork needs some TLC. Most of the time the characters look like rough – very rough – approximations of the real things. Read Full Review
