    Johnson continues to steer the good ship Star Trek Comics with a steady hand, writing a tense situation for the crew of the Enterprise, including confrontations that call into question the young James T. Kirk's ability to command. Doctor McCoy's reaction to this month's predicament is also an issue highlight, with a seemingly rash decision being later explained in the sort of rational and deeply caring manner that only Bones could express. Finally, as the issue ramps up the scenario, key members of the Enterprise crew begin to act entirely in their own interests, resulting in fantastic character moments between friends, crew members and subordinates who are all acting out of sorts. It stands to Johnson's credit that this comic is so exciting long before the baddies even show up. Read Full Review

    If you're a Star Trek fan but don't bother with the IDW comics, you're missing out: they're what you love about the franchise, only with more consistent characterization and less cringe-worthy dialogue. If Trek has never been your jam, but you like an old-fashioned space adventure, you'll be a little lost but still might have fun with the well-paced disaster plot and strong characterization. As the start of a short, action-driven arc with little reliance on the franchise's broader mythology, Star Trek #46 is a newbie-friendly entry point to the ongoing series, and the final image of an entangled Enterprise will leave you hungry for a conclusion.

    To sum up if it wasn't for Rachel Stott's artwork this comic really wouldn't be a pleasant experience at all, but this is only the first hiccup in the Five Year Mission run so it's not all bad. Read Full Review
