    This series continues to deliver the goods and should be well enjoyed by the vast majority of Trekkies and this issue in particular is perhaps the strongest yet. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 20, 2012

    I have to say it, I'm pleasantly surprised by this issue. The first four sold out quickly at Gatekeeper Hobbies (Huntoon & Gage, Topeka, ask me about our Gold Key Trek back-issues!), so I didn't get to see whether they work, but I'm happy here. The changes to Jim Kirk's background are identified early in the issue, serving the double purpose of clearly explaining what's going on for those who don't know AND identifying the points of divergence for those of us who know Episode 29 backwards and forward. It's hard to review this issue without making it an overview of how well the re-imagined (my friend Dusty, a massive Trek fan, says I can't call it a reboot) Star Trek franchise works, but all in all? It's a good book. Star Trek #5 manages to balance the difficult task of retelling a forty-year old story in a new context with characters who may or may not be the same as they were in 1967, earning a well-crafted 4 out of 5 stars overall.

    While this won't convert someone who isn't a Trek fan, it will appease regular fans/readers. Read Full Review

    I know it may not be everyone's cup of Raktajino, but I'm having fun. But I'll be the first to admit, your mileage may vary. Read Full Review
