Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

We talked about this on Literary Treks a lot in the upcoming episode and I am feeling that we are firmly in the future of the JJ'verse and not in the prime universe.

Short review: A disappointing story so far, much like the previous Apollo story. There's so much fanwankery that it feels more like fan fiction.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

^ Hmmm..... I would say this is a great series so far. It's picking up on some ideas from the prime universe, Weyoun talking about earth being the place where a rebellion would most likely start. Also Martok talking about how the Klingons never attacked earth, but clearly they have in this timeline. To me it is nice to have no idea where this is going, fun! Cool to see them have all the toys in the toy box and take them anywhere.

Don't get me wrong. I think it's great others are enjoying this arc. It's just not for me. My opinion is a reflection of my tastes, no one else's.

Fun issue. Reasonable pacing. Longer stories are soooo much better.

Did women play a significant role? The previews only feature men (except for Uhura giving reports in dire scenes).

Hope it's not too much of a spoiler (#*$^%#$ spoiler tags!), but Keiko is shown at least temporarily in the command chair of the NuDefiant. Nothing else so far though, although I can't imagine we won't see Kira.

An alternate universe Defiant, cool! Also, nice to see Keiko. Kira is on the cover of an upcoming issue.

Just fair warning; most of the "set" depictions of DS9 and the Defiant and such look the way we're used to seeing; no real JJverse redesign of the bridge/ops or anything.

Seeing as how this is a series whose art relies heavily on poorly-researched reference as opposed to creating setting-appropriate materials (see: the proliferation of LCARS displays), I'm not surprised.

Women generally don't do much in NuTrek and this issue is a bit lighter on chicks than normal but Keiko's appearance was cool considering she was very under-used in the show and it's a certainty that Kira is going to show up. Ro would be as nice touch too but I won't hold my breath!

I just finished reading Star Trek #36. I'm really enjoying this arc. I've said this before but I dig in the art for the space scenes...it reminds me of the old DC Comics.
