    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.

    IDW is notorious for reusing designs even if they don't fit. But, seeing as how this is supposed to be the future of the Narada timeline, it makes sense that Klingon ships look similar to that of the ships in the Khitomer Incident.

    Honestly, I find it funny that people complain that the Klingons having the Narada for 25 years and not learning anything from it. But then its revealed they did in fact learn stuff from it and incorporated it into their ships designs aka common sense people complain about that.

    How are Borg-Romulan ship spines supposed to be a tactical advantage?

    ^The same way a saucer, engineering hull and nacelles is somehow a good shape for a starship?

    ^Well that's a good-looking tradition. The Narada-style is ugly.

    Besides, Klingons do tend to hold onto a ship design for decades or even centuries...

    That should be "toe to toe".

    Should i bother with Trek 33, 34 or it's not that good and jump ahead to the Q arc?

    Is the Q arc just 2 issues?

    The Q Gambit is the first NuTrek I read in ages and I understand it just fine.

    Six issues, but only two are out so far.
