    OverallStar Trek: The Motion PictureEchoes has been a fun Star Trek Adventure that I truly enjoyed. I loved seeing a story involving the Crew just after Star Trek: The Motion Picture and I loved that they used the Romulans and parallel universe versions of two of Kirk's famous crew. The alternative version of Uhura was particularly well written and I enjoyed her warning to Kirk in the final few pages of the issue because it works as good foreshadowing for the events we saw in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

    Despite a gorgeous cover, this issue featured some uneven artwork inside – some of it bordering on amateurish. While the writing has been generally strong, several characters' dialogue devolves into an inappropriate level of silliness. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, Echoes feels like a worthy tale for die-hard fans of the original Trek, though might not do the trick for those who are looking for a new entry into Star Trek lore when IDW currently has so many more offerings to expand on the sci-fi universe. Read Full Review

    The end felt very rushed. I was surprised that the mirror Chekov was killed, and the battle on the planet was cool, but again it felt rushed. The ending was somewhat satisfying, but I was left saying, "Is that it?" when I got to the last page.
