Synopsis: In a—SNAP!—turn of events, Q Jr has kidnapped three of Starfleet’s eldest sons and transported them to an alternate reality. By way of a bold maneuver with Lieutenant Jadzia at the helm, the U.S.S. Avery crew finally avoided being turned to shrapnel by the Breen…for now. But the crew now face a new challenge: The infamous Curzon maneuver has left them sitting dead in space, and the Breen have already begun infiltrating the ship. To make matters worse, QJ’s powers have stopped working. It’s do or die for Jake Sisko and the crew of the Avery—for real this time.

 

The Story

Having pulled off a dangerous maneuver in the last issue. The U.S.S. Avery is severely damaged and unable to go to warp. Thankfully Chief Engineer Shaw is on the case and has enlisted help from Lieutenant Nog who may have a solution to the ship’s diminished Dilithium crystals. However, Nogs plans to fix the crystals gets put on hold when a bunch of Breen invade the ship. Meanwhile on the Bridge. Captain Dukat, Jake Sisko and Q Junior are completely unaware of the Breen visitors and are fully focused on trying to get the ship to a safe area of space while Q JR struggles to figure out what has happened to his powers.

 

The Artwork

Angel Hernandez continues to do a great job with the artwork. I liked how well the artist managed to convey the effect and give us a visual cue for when the Breen used their personal cloaks. I also love how Hernandez managed to convey the drama on the final page.

 

Overall

Sons of Star Trek continues to be a good read and fully commits to its purpose of highlighting the strengths and skills of Jake Sisko, Alexander, and Nog. I loved how this issue was told from Nog’s point of view via his logs and also enjoyed how Nog’s experience in this universe has helped inform him on what he needs to do once he returns to his universe.
