    Report for duty now! This captures the tone of the classic series as it ventures into unseen territory. I love the moment between Kirk and McCoy and how that foreshadows a major future event. The art captures the likenesses of the characters well, especially on the captain. I really like the settings, with the Enterprise and the alien world exceptional. If the series is as a good as this premiere, this will be a voyage to join. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Apr 24, 2019

    With all the attention to current Trek, such as Discovery and the Kelvin time line, and the multitudes of Trek series that IDW has to choose from, I was beginning to wonder if they would ever revisit the original series with the iconic cast and characters again. I'm so glad that they're giving us this series and it's a great intro to what could be one of the best Trek stories ever told in comics. The ending has a great cliff hanger and I can't wait for the next issue. I grew up with this series and now the original cast is aging and, regrettably, starting to die off. First Deforest Kelley, than James Doohan, also Leonard Nimoy. They will play these characters no more. William Shatner is almost 90 years old. The original cast will never put together any shows or movies ever again. The only way us fans can get original stories now is through Novels and comics. God bless IDW and Titan Books for continuing the legacy and giving us original stories. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Brendan Hodgdon Apr 24, 2019

    As a mission statement for the series to follow, Star Trek: Year Five #1 is an invigorating debut. This can be attributed to both the quality craftsmanship of the creative team, and their clear love for the Starship Enterprise and her fearless crew. In filling in such a major gap in Trek lore, Lanzing, Kelly, Thompson, Kirchoff and Uyetake have held nothing back. The result is undoubtedly worthy of its progenitor's vaunted place in the history of science-fiction. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Darryll Robson Apr 23, 2019

    A wonderful 'Original Series' Star Trek comic, written for the fans but also newbie friendly. It hooks the reader from panel one and doesn't let go. With a bright aesthetic and an old school space adventure plot, this series is definitely going to be a hit with Star Trek fans. Read Full Review
