    By balancing both fun and pathos Star Trek: Waypoint #2 is a great example of the lasting power and emotional scope of this property. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Jorge Arena Feb 9, 2017

    Star Trek: Waypoint #2 beams to your hands two tales based off the classic original series. One feels like it belongs as an episode of the series, and the second which brings to life some of the forgotten people in the background of the Enterprise. The art helps to bring the stories to life while the colors do their best to match the genre they are attempting to portray. Some of the dialog in the first story could have used a bit more work, it was still a good, fun read. The color in the second story could have done more to engage the eyes, but overall it did its job. Read Full Review

    Wrapping "Legacy" up " with a rather splendid bow " is the artwork from Rachael Stott and the colours from Mark Roberts. I'm already a fan of Rachael Stott's art and I'm constantly asking for more of it in the world of Star Trek, so to see it appear in Star Trek: Waypoint has placed a smile on my bearded face.

    It is, but only because one of the two stories is everything you'd want in a Star Trek story. The first story certainly delivers nostalgia for the series and classic comic books, but runs on too long. That said, as a whole this series is getting at the essence of Star Trek. Star Trek: Waypoint reminds us Star Trek is a series that is valid and timeless. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal Nov 16, 2016

    If it weren't for the second story, this book would get the lowest score possible. It doesn't make me happy to say that. In fact, I was hoping the opposite. I came in energetic and enthusiastic about this issue much like I did on the first issue. Unfortunately, the shift from issue one to issue two is too great. I will likely give this series one more issue, but my enthusiasm is greatly diminished. Read Full Review
