Star Trek #32 continues the adaptation of the classic Star Trek series episode, “I Enterprise,” updated to fit into the new Star Trek continuity!

For this issue, writer Mike Johnson does a great job at wrapping up “I Enterprise.” We get some new spins and a couple of surprises, but what we get most of this issue is some GREAT character development. We all know who Kirk, Spock, and McCoy are, but things have changed a little in this new universe, and with it, so have those characters. We get to know a little bit more about them through the conflicts that they go through in this issue. And, it’s a surprisingly nice change of pace. This is a fantastically written installment by Johnson, who has been a bright spot in this series.

Star Trek #12

Star Trek #12 is the finale to the two-part Tribbles story line. Yes, I’m sure you’re all familiar with the OLD or CLASSIC “Trouble with Tribbles” story. You even know that Captain Sisko & company revisited that episode in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. But, as they say, this ain’t your father’s Star Trek!

Writer Mike Johnson puts a WHOLE new spin on the Tribbles tale, one that is probably the furthest yet removed from its original predecessor. Guided by Roberto Orci, this pretty much original story sticks to some of the same beats that that the original episode does, but that’s where the similarities end. Johnson takes us almost literally from one end of the Star Trek timeline to the other, and includes SO MUCH of the “new” Star Trek history, it’s a wonder that it didn’t take a dozen scriptwriters to proofread this comic.

Star Trek #10
Written by Mike Johnson
Art by Stephen Molnar
Colors by Jeff Rauch
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Based on the original teleplay The Return of the Archons by Boris Sobelman
Original Story by Gene Roddenberry
Creative Consultant: Robert Orci
Editor: Scott Dunbier

Release Date: June 27, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

This new Star Trek ongoing series is quickly becoming more than just a series to tide you over to the next Star Trek movie. It’s getting better and better with each issue, and it shows NO signs of slowing down, especially in this issue.

Writer Mike Johnson does some VERY impressive stuff this issue. Not only does he take this episode from the original series and turn it on its ear, but he gives up something really, REALLY shocking at the end. I mean it folks, this is a game changer on epic levels. I’m guessing since Roberto Orci does consulting for this series, it MAY even turn up in the movie. But believe me, it’s something that’s NEVER been done in Star Trek, let alone Star Trek comics.

Star Trek #5

Release Date: January 18, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

IDW continues adapting the classic Star Trek television episodes into comic book form starring the cast of the 2009 Star Trek reboot movie. Star Trek #5 is based on the classic Star Trek television episode, “Operation: Annihilate” written by Oliver Crawford and Steve W. Carabatsos.

Writer Mike Johnson takes a GREAT many liberties with the story that this issue is based on, and so far, it’s working out great. After all, it would be pretty boring if the story was beat for beat the same as the television episode and just drawn in with the actors that played the characters in the 2009 film.
