At first glance you might think this is a comic with little bearing on the film-verse of Star Trek and oh boy you would be wrong. I went in enjoying a light look at what life inside Starfleet Academy is like but once the plot really gets going it quickly became apparent the story here actually gives major background on the Star Trek universe.
Not only are the new characters very enjoyable, the cameos from our classic faves are perfection. If you enjoy the Star Trek franchise and are looking for a great comic read, look no further.
