    Gary Sevens' appearance in this issue was quite dramatic and only added to the fun. Although, I am a bit concerned with where this particular aspect of Year Five is going. Particularly, given that Gary Seven is a favorite character of mine from the original Star Trek series. And I'd not want to see him being Kirks' enemy forever. So I do hope it gets resolved.

    As a time travel story in the Star Trek-mode, it's fine enough, but it's hard to shake the feeling that the issue squandered the opportunity to transcend its familiar premise. Read Full Review

    Overall great story but the misattribution of the “house divided” quote was distracting. “A house divided against itself cannot stand” is an Abraham Lincoln quote the same way “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” is a Michael Scott quote, i.e. yes they said this but they were quoting another source, in Lincoln’s case that source being Jesus Christ. The fact that Spock was either too ignorant to know this or too frivolously imprecise to care is incongruous with the meticulousness central to Spock’s character.
