I enjoyed this issue a lot. Sulu's sister was a pleasant surprise. I'm glad they included her. And that the comics are adding new characters, hopefully recurring and/or supporting, in the series. I hope they continue adding more or developing some of the background characters they already have, like that Orion red shirt.
The story was good. I think they had a good grasp on Pine's Kirk. Looking forward to seeing more. The art was also good. I liked the Romulan soul patch (?).
