    As a long-time (and rather obsessive) Star Trek fan, these IDW one-shots have been a real pleasure to read. Although we all love Kirk and Spock, too often the supporting characters get lost in the adventure. Fleshing out their place within this new Trek not only strengthens their role, but the setting as a whole. Although I will admit, we've now had two (technically four if you count Kirk and Spock's cinematic tales) deaths that drive our leads. With that in mind, I'm really hoping for some variety in inspiration with upcoming issues. Still, it's a good time to be a Star Trek fan, in no small part due to IDW and the creative teams they've put together. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Harrison Rawdin Feb 20, 2013

    Star Trek #18 is by no means a perfect outing but this should be a shinning example of how you take a franchise and you add a subtle wrinkle to its history in order to make something special. By the end of this portion of the saga fans should be pleased with the results. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Star Trek #18 is a fantastic self-contained story that gives us a look into what makes Uhura tick. Issues 17 and 18 have been great entries that serve not only as a refresher course for the movie version of the characters, but also a great study on McCoy and Uhura's largely untouched backstories. Next month's teasers shows us Scotty, and if it's anything like this month's issue it will be a treat 4/5 Read Full Review
