Resurgence

Synopsis: In this Comic book prequel to the forthcoming Star Trek: Resurgence game from Dramatic Labs. This opening book follows the crew of the U.S.S. Resolute who are tasked with recovering Dr. Leah Brahms from the hostile Talarian Republic.

 

The Story

While working on a new warp drive, which has been banned by Starfleet. Dr. Leah Brahms takes her research into Talarian space where she finds an M-Class planet that is rich in a rare but volatile type of Dilithium. But before she can gather more data on her discovery she is captured by The Talarian Republic.

Having learned of her disappearance. Starfleet orders Captain Solano of the U.S.S. Resolute to go into Talarian space and rescue Brahms and retrieve her research. However, the fact that Solano has a past history with Brahms complicates matters.

 

The Artwork

Josh Hood does a pretty decent job with the artwork and manages to conjure up a ship interior design for The Resolute that feels true to the era. I really liked the establishing panels on the surface of the planet where we see Brahms doing some research just before she gets snatched. I also felt that the artist did a pretty good job of capturing the look of the Talarians, which would have been pretty difficult to do given that we only ever saw a handful of them in the TNG episode ‘Suddenly Human.’

 

Overall

This is a strong start to a story that brings back the Talarians and explores them a little more. I really enjoyed the fact that the writers have brought back Jono who was the surrogate human son of  Talarian captain Endar and grandson of Starfleet Vice Admiral Connaught Rossa. I also loved how Jono got introduced into this story on the closing page. As it serves as a great cliffhanger for the next issue.
