Re: Countdown to Darkness - Review and Discussion

The final issue came out yesterday.

There are some nice fanwank moments -- we meet Kor, we see Pike again.

Was Countdown to Darkness worth it?

It was nice enough. A lot of it felt familiar -- it's basically "A Private Little War" crossed with "Patterns of Force," but with higher stakes when April commandeers Kirk's ship. I enjoyed it, and the last few pages have me intrigued.

And I suspect that those last few pages lead as much into the "After Darkness" storyline as they do for Into Darkness.
