Yeah, I agree with your review. This was a 2-issue non-story. Terrible.
It is really isn't it?
The artwork was pretty good, though.
Yeah, it really was a non-story. Nothing happens.
I loved the LaForge and Mirror Kirk cameos....excellent fan service!

So do they do anything besides talk to each other?
a) read it
b) Know enough about it already
Very much a filler duolody. Nothing too exciting, which is frustrating when having the 2 Kirks meet could have been a growth experience. missed potential.
A page from this issue is highlighted in ComicsAlliance's "Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week)" feature:
Apparently the story involves a crossover between multiple universes, and they're continuing to rely on the "Infinite universes = every possible random thing happens" premise.
This series just made me sigh.
I mean, not every storyline can be fantastic, but this just struck me as both mindnumbingly dull AND stupid.
Two issue stories always seem pretty weak to me. The first issues building up to something often aren't too bad but the resolutions have to be too basic to tie everything up in a bow. The longer ones have been so much better. I wish they would learn from that.
Yeah, 3 to 5 seems to be the sweet spot. Any longer and threads get frayed or the series just feels a bit overstretched.
I liked it, if a bit short. Jane Kirk seemed to be bit like Kathryn Janeway in that conference room scene. I thought that the interaction between Pavel and Pavelona to be cute, and I thought that the comparisons that Spock and Fem!Spock (I would have used the name "T'Spock" for Fem!Spock) were making, vis-a-vis their respective relationships with their Uhura/o was priceless. And I thought that the two Scotty(s) we're funny. I wished that the two Sulu(s) and McCoy(s) had interacted more. I am surprised that the two Kirk(s) didn't, well, you know...
If there is one real complaint, Fem!Khan should have been called "Rani", which is the female equivalent to "Khan". And I would have thrown in a "Doctor Who" joke in for good measure. Guys, do your homework.
Anyway, good entertainment, but a little lite in the resolution. Good luck for next time.
I think that should be Pavla. At least it is in Czech.
I think it would be T'Pok instead. I've always figured that when Theodore Sturgeon coined the names T'Pring and T'Pau in "Amok Time," he was assuming that Vulcan male names began with S and female names began with T. But "Spock" and "Stonn" weren't spelled with apostrophes because those letter blends occur in English, whereas "tp" doesn't (except in the middle of a compound word like "hotplate," say).
No, Rani is the female equivalent of Raja. Khan is a Central Asian title used as a Muslim surname; it's not actually an Indian name at all (nor is Noonien, which is Chinese). The female form of the title Khan is Khanum, so perhaps she would've been named Khanum Noonien Kaur (the standard Sikh female surname, as Singh is the standard male one).
I liked this comic
it was crack on purpose, I think, and funny.
the best part was Spock/Uhura & Spock/Uhuro meeting and the way the two Uhura facepalm together because of the two Spock FemaleSpock staring at Uhura and making comparisons between her and her boyfriend was priceless.
I would have loved to see an interaction between McCoy and his double, though!
Thanks for the correction.
So, the story is about an interdimensional intersection, and the two Enterprises join forces to return to their respective realms?
Do we get so see the Fem!Enterprise, or any other ships? The sneak peek implies an Enterprise crewed by angry Klingons but we only see a corridor with shadowy figures.
Yes, to both of the above questions, briefly.
Separate names with a comma.
