Star Trek

Synopsis: This month on Star Trek. Tasked with a mission from the Prophets, Benjamin Sisko enlists the help of an old friend from Qo’noS to track the ship and persons responsible for slaying the gods.

 

The Story

Having seen the godlike crystalline entities destroyed in the last issue. Sisko’s mission to save the prophets takes on more urgency and he heads to Qo’nos to get aid from his old friend Worf to track the persons responsible for killing the gods. As he arrives Worf takes his former Captain for an audience with Kahless who is not impressed when Sisko asks for help in speaking to the scientist beings that reside on Sarkadesh where all things are made. To go there will defy a longstanding treaty that the Klingons have with the mysterious scientists of Sarkadesh. But Sisko needs to see them as only they could hold the key to helping him and his new crew solve the mystery and find the mysterious attacker that killed a bunch of prophets.

 

The Artwork

Ramon Rosanas does a fantastic job of the art in this issue. Although some of the character likenesses are a bit off from certain angles. The work he does on the backgrounds more than makes up for that. As he manages to capture some truly stunning Star Trek visuals. I particularly enjoyed the sections of the book that were set on Qo’nos. Especially the bits that were set in Kahless’s throne room.

In short. Rosanas has upped his game from the last issue, which is pretty amazing given that his work in the last issue was also really good.

 

Overall

Collin Kelly and  Jackson Lanzing have managed to conjure up a really fun story here that feels like it would have been an epic two-part episode of Star Trek had it been written for television. I really like the choices of characters that these writers chose to go with to aid Sisko. I particularly enjoyed seeing Scotty back in engineering again.

The writers also managed to give us a brilliant cliffhanger ending that is going to keep us perched on the edge of our seats for the whole month.
