Review of Star Trek: Ongoing #20

Hello all. Here is my review of Star Trek: Ongoing #20

Those of you who read my Star Trek #19 review may have thought I wasn’t overly keen on the histories of our Reboot Bridge Crew and if the tales all stayed the same as #19 I would say “You’re right!”, but this #20 has shown me that I can enjoy looking back at the cadet days.

Re: Review of Star Trek: Ongoing #20

I've only looked over the preview pages that have been posted online. How the hell can Sulu belong to Red Squad? That was something new in DS9 when Nog was attending the Academy, Sisko never heard of it and even stated there was nothing like it in his day. What, Nero's arrival in 2233 makes Starfleet Academy decide to form Red Squad 120 years earlier than they did in the Prime Universe? Really?

They seem to be dropping alot on Sulus shoulders in new Trek (even the future).

It could be something that was around in the 23rd century, abandoned for generations, and then resurrected.

Or it could be a failure of research. What bugged me was the narration on the first page that gave the same size and membership statistics for the Federation that Picard gave in TNG, over a century later. There's no way that works.

Agreed, that's what it seems like to me. The reuse of the First Contact statistics really bugged me as well.
