Well, after reading issue 4 I got mixed feelings on the series. It's better written than Countdown, but Countdown was better set-up for XI than this was for STID. What exactly did this set up for the movie? Spock is still dealing with trauma relating to Vulcan's destruction, and we likely know where the ship from the trailers came from ("This ship will not fit" "It will"). But otherwise, nothing. Hell, at the end we have Pike telling Kirk to forget everything that just happened which seems to me a fancy way of saying "nothing that happened here has any real relevance to the movie." The closest thing you can get to a reset button without resetting anything. Reminds me of Family Guy's joke about reset buttons "isn't this basically a middle finger to the audience?"
