Written (?) by Brannon Braga, the sum of the book feels like a well done story board for a two parter from a Trek series that was canceled before this story got put on film. It’s a good story, but it doesn’t do the “comic thing” very well, with a number of scenes that would have done pretty well with a live action cast but fall slightly short on a 2 dimensional piece of paper.
There’s some good starship art in the book though, so if you were to want a reason to read this, there it is. Also: time travel, the Trek Trope that just won’t go away!
