In Star Trek #9, Sulu takes the spotlight as the crew fights a very strange battle against what appears to be a group of medieval villagers. I’m sure that’s all they are. Just some peaceful people minding their own business, right? What could go wrong?
I’ve gotta tell you, this book is so much FUN!!! Writer Mike Johnson does a great job of taking an old story and updating it to fit into the current Star Trek continuity. Let’s be honest, these stories were all written in the late 1960s and while some aspects can be horribly out-dated or “hokey,” Johnson turns them around and makes them new and fresh and exciting. Plus, there’s the added bonus that this is set in the Star Trek movie “universe,” so at this point, anything can happen. Yes, you know none of the crew will to die, but still, there’s an excitement that Johnson puts into the book that gives you that “anything goes” feeling. Also, he gives us some great flashbacks and insights into the characters lives that we don’t get in the movies.
