The race begins. La'an wants to rescue the crew that were scattered across the various ships in the race but her request is denied by Pike. Una is given little to do on her ship while Spock mentally interfaces with his. Enterprise is attacked by what was believed to be an asteroid but in turn, is a life-form. Pike wants to take down the person behind the entire race, who ends up destroying a ship to prove a point.
I wish I had more to say about this. I find the premise thin and uninspired. Una and Spock have little to do on their ships. The one good thing about this comic is the art by Angel Hernandez.
five out of ten.
