4.0 out of 5 stars A continuing voyage 25 Oct. 2013
By Squirr-el TOP 50 REVIEWER
This five-issue Star Trek - The Next Generation mini series is collected as Star Trek: The Next Generation - Intelligence Gathering (Star Trek Next Generation (Unnumbered)). This is a set of mainly stand-alone but interlinked adventures, which build up to a resolution in the finale. Each of the stories features an away team with a sub-set of the main characters, though most, if not all of the main characters do appear in the course of the story. There is usually a niggling mystery regarding the motivation behind the triggering event of each story, the links between which are finally revealed in the final episode.

This is an entertaining serial, with excellent artwork, scripting and characterisation of the, err, characters. Even if you are not a Star Trek fan, you should find this an entertaining adventure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engage-ing 12 Jun. 2012
By Babytoxie - Published on
STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION - INTELLIGENCE GATHERING collects the five-issue miniseries written by Scott and David Tipton, with art by David Messina. Similar to the Tiptons' Star Trek: Burden of Knowledge, each issue is a stand-alone story with its own conclusion; however, it is slowly revealed that they are linked, making it a fairly continuous narrative. I like this style of writing, as there's so much more plot to absorb, plus there's an overall direction to the miniseries. Captain Picard and his crew encounter saboteurs, become involved in a dispute between the Rigelians and the Kaylar, investigate a phantom warp core breach, defend themselves against uncharacteristically belligerent Pakleds, and respond to a medical emergency on Rete Mire. It eventually becomes clear that the Enterprise is being manipulated, with Data as the key. The Tiptons are responsible for some excellent Trek storylines that make me feel as if I'm watching unproduced TV episodes, and this miniseries is no exception. It's not difficult to imagine the actors speaking these lines. This is some of David Messina's earlier Trek work for IDW, so the artistic style is a bit rougher than what he's producing today, but it still looks good. He does a great job of emphasizing the individual appearances of the crewmembers without making them look lightboxed.

It's good that IDW releases their Trek comics as individual miniseries, rather than an ongoing series. In general, this miniseries approach has led to higher-quality stories. A story should only be told if it needs to be, and not out of a monthly obligation.
