It's the mind-bending conclusion of "The Tholian Webs!" One crewmember makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the Enterprise in this all-new re-imagining of a classic Star Trek episode!

    A better closing chapter than its opener, but I'd have preferred it to be given more breathing room so we would have had more peril from the Tholains. Still, I'm guessing in a few issues down the line we'll be seeing them again soon. Read Full Review

    Overall, for fans of the films, this would be a good read. For an old timer like me, I would prefer see new ongoing missions rather than a re-image of the classic episodes. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 25, 2015

    The really infuriating part though is the ending, where the Enterprie breaks free of the web and violent murders several innocent Tholian ships that were just trying to defend themselves. It's an incredibly jarring sequence given how much of a non-threat the Tholians were to the Enterprise not to mention the sickeningly peppy view Kirk takes on the event. He sees his actions as a form of positive intimidation to make sure the Tholians don't mess with the Federation in future. This goes beyond simply not being inspired by the material or even just not understanding Star Trek, no this seems like the work of someone who understands Star Trek but simply loathes it and its entire ethos of peaceful exploration and valuing the sanctity of life.
