    But Why Tho? - Adrian Feb 2, 2019

    In all, issue one has me wanting to go back and rewatch episodes of Star Trek from all the different series to prep for the ensuing conflict. It seems like this miniseries will be an ode to long time Star Trek fans with quips, callbacks, quality interactions and a compelling battle of greatest minds in Star Trek. Setting phasers to hype for issue two. Read Full Review

    SciFiPulse - Patrick Hayes Feb 8, 2019

    Four different Trek crews will battle to decide the victor of an ultra-powerful alien conflict. This is a Trek fan's dream come true, and a dream crew is creating this: the Tipton brothers are aces at crafting exciting and entertaining outings, Messina and D'Amico create beautiful images, Alexakis works magic with colors, and Uyetake unifies the issues with his spot-on lettering. Get on board for this trek to end all Treks! Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 30, 2019

    The art by David Messina is great. The character renderings are well done, but Messina does a great job of capturing the look and feel of Star Trek in the background details and designs. I can't wait to see how the art evolves once the story really gets going. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 30, 2019

    The issue's story is good but the art falls a bit short in making it truly exciting. There's a lot of potential here and the start of a story that could be rather exciting and be a story that fits right into the Star Trek cannon. The story is entertaining and definitely worth it for Star Trek fans. For the rest, it's a crapshoot. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Jan 29, 2019

    A fan pleasing Star Trek story that encapsulates everything that makes a perfect Star Trek story. The cast are wonderfully rendered although the lack of emotion in the art adds a woodenness to some of the characterisation. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 5, 2019

    There's not much in the way of surprises, but with the sheer amount of setup here, it's a good thing that the villains can snap a finger and make whatever they want happen. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Jamie Lovett Jan 30, 2019

    Scott and David Tipton, veterans of IDW Publishing's Star Trek comics line, know these characters well and draw out their voices effortlessly. Nonetheless, this issue is all set up, an overture before the story really kicks off. Readers will have to wait until next issue for the follow-through. Read Full Review
