Doesn't Saavik also experience it in Vulcan's Heart, or am I mis-remembering? It's been ages since I last read that book.

Yep, in which we're told that it happens to some Romulans, too.

And yet, for readers of the comics, Saavik was undergoing pon farr in the then-current issues. The ST III adaptation ended up coming out just before Part 2 of "The Origin of Saavik".

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

Just read Issue 25 - yay a four parter! It really shows too. They've taken some time to introduce a new character, spent some time on some character moments, designed a story to cover both of the classic TOS villains, and clearly have plenty of room to escalate the story.

It was nice to see a female engineer getting some development, although as a redshirt I can't help wondering how many days she has left to retirement - there is a sort of Peter Preston vibe about her. And Chekov has been promoted! Harry Kim must be very jealous.

The landing party was a good balance of genders and occupation: a commander, a doctor, a weapon specialist, and 2 security guards. Nice to see the Orion again and is that Janice in the background? I get a bit nervous when they stick a blonde on security duty. What I really want now is a recurring Andorian.

Looking forward to part 2. I hope this means that 4 parters are going to be mixed in with shorter stories on a regular basis.

Well, there was to have been an Andorian on this earlier alternate cover, but she was switched out for an Orion.

I haven't read the issue yet, only the preview. I'm waiting for the collection of all four, but I hope they don't kill her off, that would be predictable. Kirk and Spock both lost family members, it's time for some variety.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

Oh, now I haven't actually read many of the comics because money is precious these days, so I'm wondering which of the previously released collections people would recommend, volume 4 with Keenser, Cupcake, and the MU, or 5 with all the backstory comics?

I enjoyed both sets of stories. I guess it depends on if you're more curious about the main regulars' early days or Keenser and Cupcake?

Well I'm obviously more interested in the main characters. But what about the Mirror Universe story? Was that good?

Yep. At least, I don't recall having a bad reaction to it. You might have to take pot luck.

The story was good. The art, not so much.

^The story was good when it was on ENT and was called "In a Mirror, Darkly." Seeing virtually the same plot rehashed with Abrams-TOS characters didn't do much for me.

But I did enjoy the Hendorff and Keenser stories.

I found the Keenser story to be a bit childishly insulting to 'disability' in the workplace (Keenser standing on a box to reach consoles) but the Hendorff story was by far the best one-shot in the series.

And yet short actors stand on boxes every day they film.

You never heard the Nichelle-in-the-elevator scene during the making of TMP?

Insulting to whom? Maybe it was insulting to the Starfleet designers, demonstrating their failure to design with accessibility in mind, but I think Keenser came off in a positive light and was able to adapt to his circumstances.
