I really enjoyed that series, for the most part, though I remember being ticked off by certain events preceding the events of Star Trek IV. Still, I remembered the Marvel comic a couple years earlier and was thrilled by how much better the DC comic was.
I eventually became (briefly) one of the letterhacks who wrote in to the letter column, and had a few letters published. Heck, I even got a neat freebie out of it: Bob sent out advance photocopies of the first issue of the initial DC TNG miniseries to get some letters that could be printed before the miniseries was over. (I still have my copy, Bob.)
