    Overall, Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Gift is a fun recreation of a classic story that gives a unique take on the butterfly effect. The story De Lancie and Michael Jan Friedman is excellent. The art by the creative team is beautiful. Altogether, an excellent issue that captures the spirit of the show and shows why De Lancies Q is such a fan favorite. Read Full Review

    This was a fun return to the classic DC days when the series was still new and we weren't yet familiar with the story of Captain Picard's disapproving father or rough relationship with his brother. This was a great example of the time traveler's biggest quagmire. Could saving an innocent change the course of history so much you realize it was a mistake? All-in-all John DeLancie did well making an adventure featuring his beloved mischief maker character. I do miss the days of DC's comic, and since this is one I missed it was a great return to old nostalgia. I don't get many Star Trek comics anymore, but this was a good one. I'm glad I picked it up. If you enjoyed DC's classic run on the series you should check this one out.
