Star Trek: The Motion Picture - Echoes #4 review

On Earth the Romulan Ambassador complains about the actions of Admiral Kirk. the Federation President orders Kirk and crew back to Earth ASAP. in private the President and Admiral Ubah realize they are now closer to war with the Romulans due to Kirk's actions.

On the Enterprise a Romulan Bird of Prey decloaks and demands the return of their shuttle. Spock invites them to scan for it and they find nothing. later, the alternate Uhura knocks out Scotty and takes off in her shuttle. the alternate Uhura eventually locates the alternate Chekov. the Romulan ship easily destroys the ship but she is clinging to the surface of the Romulan ship in an EV suit. she fights he war through the ship.

Back on the Enterprise, Spock determines that, with the weapon alternate Chekov gave the Romulans near completion, they must destroy the ship.

Alternate Uhura going after alternate Chekov in order to save Chekov seems a bit out of character for what we know of her. again, i find the Romulan stuff to be the most interesting bit of this mini. and there is more of it in this issue than others. i also enjoyed the opening scenes with the Federation President and Romulan Ambassador. if only there were more of it.

six out of ten.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds - The Scorpius Run #1 review

The Enterprise picks up a distress call and moves to investigate. onboard they find one survivor who tells them she has a debt to pay to a local crime Boss. later, the Enterprise arrives at Celius Prime in an effort to help their passenger. Pike and some of the bridge crew are beamed off. they face the crime boss who tells them the only way out of the dangerous Scorpion sector is by way of the most dangerous race in the galaxy. Pike agrees to the race but members of this crew are placed among various other ships in the race. The idea of a race in space is nothing new. its not even new in the realms of Star Trek. you have 'The Great Starship Race' from the old Pocket Book line. and thus far, i feel the novel is superior. though the Pike of Strange New Worlds is laid back i hardly think he would so easily agree to all the terms and obviously laid traps he faces here. six out of ten.

Void Rivals #2 review

What’s this then? Why, it’s Void Rivals # 2, the second issue (shocking, I know) of Robert Kirkman, Lorenzo De Felici, and Matheus Lopes’ new sci-fi comic. It tells the tale of two crumbling planets linked by a “Sacred Ring” (it’s not Halo), their peoples at war for generations. When a member of each culture are stranded together, the two find they must put aside their differences if they want to survive. This story takes place in the so-called “Energon Universe”, Skybound Entertainment’s new initiative to relaunch properties like Transformers and G.I. Joe within a shared universe that also happens to include the original characters and setting of Void Rivals. Any good? You know what, yeah! I’m enjoying it so far and I guess I’m not surprised. Robert Kirkman does well with cosmic space stuff and I was a big fan of Invincible. In two issues he’s already crafted an intriguing dramatic setup and a compelling dynamic between our two lead characters Darak and Solila. We’ve seen the “enemies
