So did he give her another name in either of the series?
Nope. On the few occasions someone comes close to speaking her name the speaker is interrupted, and otherwise she is addressed by rank.

John Byrne has had more than a fair share of detractors when he was doing his more traditional superhero work, but I think he's been solidly knocking stuff out of the park with his Star Trek efforts at IDW. Bringing back Number One in Crew and Romulans: Schism has been great and would love it if he continued her adventures further...
I've enjoyed his Romulans work, even if I'm disappointed that I'm going to have to double-dip on the issues to get the Romulans trade paperback; the collection will have an exclusive adaptation of "Balance of Terror."

Re: Star Trek: Crew in Trade Paperback

For those of you who read Crew, I was kinda disappointed it was never explained in issue 2 why that destroyed colony was running fake holograms of the people. Unless I missed something. Other than that, I think this was my favorite series yet put out by IDW.
Mission's End wasn't bad.

Weren't the projections of the colonists some kind of trap? To lure rescue parties to the surface?

(Sorry--had to go grab my TPB off the shelf because the issues are floating around my flat someplace).

I would disagree with these people.

IMO, his run of X-Men with Terry austin and Chris Claremont is still some of the best stuff ever. And Byrne's run on Fantastic Four has some amazing work in it as well.
I'll join you in praising Byrne's early X-Men and FF work, but I didn't really care for anything he did later (Alpha Flight, Hulk, Namor, both Avengers teams, ect).

I've never read any of his Marvel work--just all the Post-Crisis Superman for DC, back in the mid to late 1980s. Crew was the first Byrne work I've picked up in almost two decades. Having read through his forums, he seems like an absolute diehard Old School TOS fan, tho, and put a lot of care and love into the series.

Man of Steel is still the definitive Superman origin as far as I'm concerned, and I really liked Byrne's Alpha Flight run-- and most of his Trek stuff has been gold, too.

That's where most of the criticisms towards Byrne is aimed at, his later work (within the last ten years or so). Ditto for Claremont, who gets praise for his early X-men stuff, but not much love for his more recent X-men work from the fanboys (although I've heard good things about his current X-Men: Forever series).

Byrne's Man of Steel six issue miniseries is one of my absolute all-time favorite comics.
