Synopsis: Captain Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S Endeavour encounter a new threat to the Federation, but one very familiar to STAR TREK fans! Meanwhile, Spock and Uhura face an uncertain future on New Vulcan!
Review: Having rescued Sulu from the debris of the Concorde. Kirk learns of the Borg as Sulu fills him in on the vicious methodical attack of which he was the sole survivor.
On Vulcan Spock and Uhura learn of a Borg attack that took place years before as a Vulcan ship went missing on the edge of the Delta Quadrant. The two armed with this knowledge arrange to intercept Captain Kirk in a Vulcan Battleship.
Meanwhile Kirk and his new crew have figured out where the Borg are headed next and set an intercept course for Romulus. When a Borg sphere attacks a nearby Federation Outpost Kirk and his crew get their first glimpse of the Borg and our boarded by an assimilated Captain Tyrell. He warns that they will be punished if they try to interfere. Kirk does not take kindly to the warning and continues his pursuit of the Borg.
Mike Johnson continues his narrative, which most likely has borrowed just a little bit from ‘Best Of Both Worlds’, but with Tyrell subbing for Captain Picard.
The artwork by George Caltsoldas & Tony Shasteen works well with the narrative.
Although the story does not feel exactly original. It is a fitting tribute for the continuing celebrations of ‘Star Trek’s’ 50th year.
Personally I’d have liked to have seen something done involving the Andorian’s, but given that the Borg are amongst the most popular villains of ‘Star Trek’ it’s entirely understandable that they’d get used for this.
