So for anyone who loves the new Star Trek movies, and to any of the "old" generation of Star Trek fan, I recommend, and implore you, to buy and to read (and immerse) yourself into this comic. may you all live long, and prosper!
Yeoman Zahra Jamal, portrayed by actress Maurishka Taliaferro in the live-action episode, appears in 'Operation: Annihilate' adaptation as well as the succeeding original story, 'Vulcan's Vengeance.'
The original story, 'Vulcan's Vengeance' focuses on a group of Vulcans who want revenge on Romulans due to the destruction of planet Vulcan (seen in the 2009 "Star Trek" film). Note: One of the Romulan politician involved in the matter has a strong resemblance to the late actor Robert Mitchum. I assume that was intentional, but I wonder was that to make a metaphorical point based on who Mitchum was, or the kind of characters he portrayed? Or was it just a simple nod from a fan of the actor? (It was probably the latter).
I still have a nitpick that carries over from the first volume: Do these adventures take place during the five-year mission or before? At the time of this volume, the reboot crew still has yet to go on said five-year mission...and the original stories in the 'other' timeline took place during the five year mission. If not, these adaptations possibly are assignments given to the crew to handle.
The stories presented in this volume aren't deep, but they are quick, fun reads to pass the time. And, good for fans of the classic series and reboot crew to get their fix.
All in all, I found this to be a good book. I'm not sure if it's worth the $17.99 list price, but it costs a lot less for the Kindle and even the paperback is reduced here, so no worries. (Star Trek graphic novels are usually overpriced, just like Star Wars graphic novels.)
I will also say that the art is extremely well done. I enjoy looking at the book more than actually reading it. The writing is fine, but the art is exceptional.
