Back to a Trek beginning Dec 1 2009
By David E. Cedervall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Peter David wrote a number of Star Trek comics years ago. He was cautioned about some new concepts and characters he wanted to use and told that while he was "in Gene Roddenberry's sandbox" he had to conform to Trek canon. By creating Captain McKenzie Calhoun and placing him with fascinating crewmates on the Excalibur, he has opened up another "sandbox-annex" that appeals to many Trek fans. In his books, the lives of the characters have developed, "Mack" got married to Admiral Shelby and they get together from time to time while captaining their own ships. At any rate, the adaptation of this Trek world back into graphic novel form has completed the circle again with a fully acceptable story well presented with art by Stephen Thompson. I don't critique the artwork technicalties or compare it with other artists, and don't get into literary dissection like so many nit-pickers out there, I just enjoy being in the world of Trek and any circumstances when Calhoun's adventures make contact with any of the "canonical" characters from the various series from TV are whipped cream on the top of the Trek sundae.

Good story -- Horrible art May 29 2009
By K. Hosey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When IDW took over the rights to publishing Star Trek comics, I was very impressed by the excellent quality of their artwork. Since Gold Key first published Trek comics many year ago, the artwork has been...how do I put this delicately...less than stellar! Except for one rare instance (Adam Hughes' exceptional work on the Trek graphic novel "Debt of Honor"), it's as if Gold Key and every publisher since have sought out the worst artists they could find. Then IDW came along and actually recruited talented illustrators for their books.

That is, until this one.

I am a big fan of Peter David and his New Frontier series. While this graphic novel isn't the strongest of his entries (although it's much better than his recent New Frontier novel "Treason"), it is quite enjoyable. Unfortunately, the rough and amateurish scribblings of artist Stephen Thompson are not. Thompson's illustrations made this a much more difficult read than it should have been.

I recommend the book for the story only.

ST: NF Comic June 20 2009
By C. Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As always, Peter David's work gets my thumbs up ; ) Great story line with fab animation. Fills in all the gaps from the last ST: NF novel. Can't wait for the next one....

Comic Book - what gives with ST???? Oct. 10 2008
By M. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was expecting another ST NF book, and instead got a comic book. Possibly the best Star Trek book ever written was "Stone and Anvil" by Peter David. I was really looking forward to this read...but with all things "Star Trek" right now, it was a disappointment.

A fifteen minute read when I was hoping for a two day book. I haven't been this disappointed since the Star Trek Experience shut down last month. Anyone know if Paramount will sell this franchise to Disney???
