Synopsis: This month in Star Trek Comic. Having revealed their true godlike identity, T’Lir is relying on Captain Sisko to help repair Kahless’ damage to space-time and save their species from extinction. Despite the Prophets’ eerie warning that Sisko is forbidden at the Pleroma—a meeting place for god-level species at intersecting space-time coordinates—he and his crew head to the Utopia Planitia Federation Shipyards for a retrofit to the Theseus in preparation to boldly take on the unknown. Meanwhile, a mysterious figure from Section 31 approaches Lily with a mission, claiming the Federation’s future is in her hands.

 

The Story

Captain Sisko and the crew of the Theseus dock at the Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards in order to retrofit their ship for their mission to Pleroma a meeting place for god-like species. Using designs put together by T’Lir who is playing host to an Organian. The crew works with Liam Shawn to create a new transwarp drive to facilitate Theseus’s journey to Pleroma as the newly fitted Theseus is about to leave for its mission. The prophets make one more attempt to prevent the Emissary from going for the mission.

 

The Artwork

Megan Levens does a fantastic job with the artwork and manages to capture the likeness of Liam Shaw brilliantly. Only this version of the character is about 20 or so years younger than the Shaw we met in the final season of Picard.

My favorite panels come towards the end of the book when Theseus enters Pleroma we see some fun imagery of the various crew members as they are breaking through the barrier.

 

Overall

Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing continue to create a compelling story in which we see the Theseus crew under Captain Sisko continue to try and undo some of the damage that Kahless’s war against the gods has done. I loved the inclusion of Aegis at the end of the book as they tell Sisko and his crew that they should prepare to be unmade. I have to wonder if the inclusion of Aegis in this book means that we might see Wesley Crusher at some point. As it was revealed that he was with Aegis in the second season of Picard.

Overall. A really enjoyable read.
