Jaylah's past revelaed
Star Trek: Boldly Go #5 - Mike Johnson,Tony Shasteen

A new storyline, and this feels like a one-shot.   It's Jaylah's turn to shine as we see who she was in reverse: it keeps going back in time until we see her birth.   

 

She could have been better in the movie, and I feel like this is starting to flesh her out even more here.   I really enjoyed seeing the culture she came from and how she grew up, and so I really ended up enjoying this issue as much as the first storyline.

The Borg take Spock
Star Trek: Boldly Go #4 - Mike Johnson,Tony Shasteen,George Caltsoudas

And, oh, think about the damage they could do with him!   I was half expecting him to be Locutus, but this ending was far more perfect: it made sense, it leaves it open to another storyline in the future.   Actually, it pretty much promises one.   Creepy, and it resolves the Romulan storyline as well. 

 

Looking forward to more of this. I  got the first five issues for a buck each via a Comixology sale.

Love, love, love!
Star Trek: Boldly Go #3 - Mike Johnson,Tony Shasteen,George Caltsoudas

This series gets better and better as more is revealed about why the Federation is being attacked, and how their new foe plans on getting information - and hopefully resources.   There's also a subplot with the Romulans, including the first Romulan officer who is Earth born and feels more loyal to Earth than to Romulus. 

 

All the threads are pulled together and come to meet quite nicely.   And, yeah, someone gets kidnapped.

It gets more complicated.
Star Trek: Boldly Go #2 - Mike Johnson,Tony Shasteen,George Caltsoldas

The Endeavor is in the sights of the new threat and so is Sulu, his husband and daughter.   First of all: I like this little bit.  I like that Takei's character is not only gay, but has a family.   

 

Uhura is on sabbatical with Spock on New Vulcan and she gets asked to help with the translation of an odd transmission.

 

It's all creepier when you know what's going to happen, having spoiled yourself.   Shudder.   The enemy is revealed to the readers in this issue, I believe.  I read all four yesterday and can't really remember what happened in which, because I loved them too much to even stop to take notes on my phone.

Fantastic set up
Star Trek: Boldly Go #1 - Mike Johnson,Tony Shasteen,George Caltsoldas

This sets up the bridge between Star Trek: Beyond and the next movie.   This issue in particular sets up where everyone is - they're taking sabbaticals, or on other ships for short stints while they wait for the Enterprise to be rebuilt.   

 

It's a lot of fun, and of course, there's tension: there's a new threat on the horizon, and it's familiar to those who watched all of Trek.
