    The second issue was a bit messier in terms of its plotting but still fun. We still haven't had a comic version of into darkness yet. It would be nice to get a version to round out the comic series.

    i love Kirk's line of "Today we're not explorers. Today We're soldiers" shows me that Kirk has definitely grown since into darkness and is willing to put his life on the line again for his ship.

    ^^It is indicated on the first page that this is indeed after Unification.

    Oh man, I might have to pick this one up. TNG Season 5-7 is one of my favorite time periods (overlapping with DS9 Seasons 1-2).

    Got it! Thanks :D Really enjoying this story, a good mix of old and new. Worthy of 50 Years and a fine tribute to Leonard Nimoy/Spock.

    Read #57 and
    Betcha five bucks that Starfleet sends The Enterprise as well as some other ships to help out the Vulcans. [/SPOILERS]

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    You need more than one ship to deal with that.

    Besides, Spock just needs to lead the people chasing him to where the planet sized amoeba are dividing, or Gornspace.

    Just read ongoing #57. Wow, Pardek Senior rocks!

    I wonder if the ending will tie back into "Vulcan's Vengeance" arc from way back in ongoing #7 and #8.

    Just read Manifest Destiny #3. Holy crap!
    I'm thinking Kai might be dead even though he was the longest recurring character in the ongoing series (apart from Keenser, Zahra and the Main cast).

    Since they are cancelling the regular series, do I need to pick the latest stuff up as single issues? Or will they still reprint everything that they've published?

    they are canceling the regular series? are you sure? when? where? how? why?

    EDIT: Never mind saw the article on Trek collective. :( what a shame. I liked it. it had some continuity errors but overall i loved the series.

    I'm super-curious for the September solicitations but I think those are in a month or two?

    They should still reprint everything. IIRC, IDW reprinted all their Doctor Who comics in trade paperback compilations, and that was with them losing the license. Since IDW still has the Trek license, I see no reason why the Ongoing comics won't be reprinted.

    Love the movie poster covers for the Manifest Destiny series. Seeing up the Search for Spock variant cover was a delight. I snatched up the last one.

    The latest issue of Manifest Destiny was great fun. Good pacing and good use of supporting characters.

    SPOILERS
    Just a few niggles - Auxillary Control is now the Battle Bridge. While this doesn't surprise me, it sounds cooler, it would have been nice to retain more of a TOS feel.

    Pet hate - an all male security team. We have Zahra but she's a named 'token' female security officer (and part of the landing party). If they are going to do all male teams they should at least balance this out with a few all female teams occasionally. We did get one way back but with two named characters.

    Transporting within the ship. It isn't clear why the transporters, a clear chink in the security armour, are not a priority for the security lock-out. Essentially, what happens in this issue is what should have happened to Kirk and Spock in ST09. The Feds look really dumb for knot keeping a closer eye on an obvious weak spot.

    Yesterday "Legacy of Spock, Part 4" and "Manifest Destiny Part 4" came out.

    I thought the resolution of the plot was too easy, but it could have been a worse tribute to Leonard Nimoy. May he and Spock live long and prosper.

    The Klingon crew? They prove they're jerks but some of them listen to reason. I found the series rather pointless.
