Synopsis: Caught in a deadly crossfire between the Romulans and Remans, Seven of Nine and Picard must draw on their combined Starfleet and Rangers skills to save not only themselves but an entire planet!
Picking up from the last issue. Picard has found himself and the Jenjorans are now prisoners of Reska and her Remans. Meanwhile, on the planet’s surface, Seven of Nine and her Rangers have just seen off a few Remans. While in orbit around the planet The Stargazer has engaged with a Romulan Bird of Prey, which is commanded by Xenius. The Romulan commander that Picard first met many years prior when he’d thought he’d saved the world of Jenjor from the Romulans.
As the various conflicts and standoffs unfold. We learn what really happened to Jenjor after Picard left and how the Jenjorans and Remans initially worked together after the Romulans left. However, the Jenjorans would ultimately betray the Remans, which would cause Reska to go after them in order to get justice for her people. Ultimately Picard and Seven of Nine come up with a diplomatic solution and help both the Remans and Jenjorans rebuild the planet.
Angel Hernandez finishes his work on this story with style. I loved the sequence of panels where Picard and Reska are in the brig on Xenius’s Warbird. The combination of solid line work with
This finishes off a nice filler story that sits nicely between seasons one and two of the TV series. I really enjoyed how the story shows us the differences between Picard and Seven of Nine, but also shows that they both meet somewhere in the middle when it comes to the art of diplomacy. I really liked how Seven uses her own experiences in order to relate to Reska and get a dialogue going with her that enables Picard and Starfleet to help create an accord between Reska and her people and the Jenjorans.
Overall. I really enjoyed this story.
