    Although the story line involves very serious elements, destruction of the universe, death of guardians, the return of Nekron, the destruction of Vulcan and more, this is still a miniseries clearly written for the fans. These five issues have been all about giving the fan boys what they want. It has been a tremendous ride. The next (sixth and final) issue promises to be joyous. Read Full Review

    GWW - Cory Anderson Nov 17, 2015

    With plenty of action colored all across the emotional spectrum, and a story that is coming to its final chapter, I couldn't have been happier with how this issue and series as a whole has progressed. It feels like Mike Johnson is writing a story tailored to the fans of both properties and has not disappointed once. Read Full Review

    Silly reason to knock a book, I know but I just can't get over the actors' faces in the comics. Aside from that, great read so far. I can't wait to see how it all ends. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 7, 2016

    While some may argue that this series has been nothing but setup, I'm having too much time to really care. This issue continues the fun of seeing tons of characters interact with each other (a nicer way of saying, "beat the crap out of each other") and it all leads to the final battle that will be next issue. The art looked fantastic and we get enough cool moments and new characters to recommend this issue to any fan of either franchise. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 19, 2015

    This series sure knows how to scratch that fanboy crossover itch. Even if the story were nonexistent, the sheer thrill of seeing Federation, Klingon and Romulan starships all locked in an epic space battle with Lantern constructs out the wazoo would be enough to justify this book's existence.

    Blog Of Oa - Myron Rumsey Nov 22, 2015

    Star Trek / Green Lantern #5 continues to be a fun hit for fans of both franchises. Mike Johnson and Angel Hernandez keep the party going as the limited series heads for the home stretch. It'll be sad to say goodbye to this one next month, but for now the story continues to be running on full thrusters. Four out of five lanterns. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Dawn of Comics Nov 18, 2015

    Having dived in so late on it didn't feel like I've missed much, that does make me wonder if this crossover is as big as it claims to be. Could this story have been told in a one off special maybe? Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Pablo Arriaga Nov 18, 2015

    The art shines through when it came to all the action. Angel Hernandez vastly improved from what almost seemed to be a never ending smolder, although still lacking in some of the expression and I still cringe every time I see Larfleeze for the wrong reasons. I have nothing but praise for the colors and the letters. Star Trek/Green Lantern #5 is the strongest issue in the series and was building up to setting up a great third act, but instead it crumbled and went back to its old ways by the end.
