I wish they would do more original stories not just rehashes of the episodes. This one was pretty much the exact same of the episode. Maybe future issues will have original stories.
Wish granted: A quote from an interview
with the writer, Mike Johnson:
It starts similar to the scope of the original series and gets bigger as we go. Think of the old "butterfly and the hurricane" analogy. Things start off relatively similar to how they did in the Gary Mitchell story, only to evolve in scope to the point that we get to the first big, original comic story, post-movie, which involves the Vulcan response to the apparent Romulan responsibility for the Vulcan homeworld's destruction.
Now that sounds interesting!
