STAR TREK’s 50th Anniversary Celebration continues with this all-new series following the adventures of Captain Kirk and the iconic crew! New worlds! New species! New ships! And a new danger unlike anything the Federation has encountered before! Boldly go into a new era of STAR TREK!

Review: Boldly Go picks things up with the various crew members of the Enterprise doing tours onboard new ships and taking a break from their old routines.

Captain Kirk and Bones have taken interim roles onboard the Endeavour while Lt Sulu is onboard the USS Concorde while Uhura and Spock are on a break on new Vulcan. Mr Scott is doing some teaching at Starfleet Academy and doing a pretty good job of putting know it all students in their place.

The first issue has a few nods to ‘Star Trek’s’ fifty years. Some of which newer fans of the series and films may not catch on their first read through.

One such nod is the fact that Sulu is the first officer to Captain Terrell who was played by the late Paul Winfield in ‘Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan’. Although with this being the alternate ‘Star Trek’ universe of the new movies. Terrell does not live long because his ship is attacked by a mysterious alien race, which most fans will be familiar with because Resistance is Futile.

This opening issue does much to set things up and though the various Enterprise Crew members are at different postings. It would not surprise me if they are all brought together by the close of this series.

The writing by Mike Johnson is pretty confident and he seems to have the voices of the characters down pretty well. The art by George Caltsoldas and Tony Shasteen works well in servicing the story. I loved the visual of Uhura in full Vulcan dress.
