TOP 50 REVIEWERon 23 August 2014
The stories from issues #25-28 of IDW's Star Trek comic book are collected as Star Trek, Vol. 7. This continues the story from the previous volume, which is in turn continued from the recent film Star Trek Into Darkness [DVD]. This volume does conclude the `open' sub-plots from the film, as Department 31 finally gets the Romulans and Klingons to go to war, though thanks to Kirk's intervention, not necessarily with each other... Department 31 has allied with the Romulans to destroy the Klingon Empire, and has armed them with advanced weaponry to carry out the scheme. There are also more secret Federation warships in action, while the Romulans have upgraded their ships with technology from Nero's ship. The Enterprise is severely outclassed in this story and has to rely on cunning and superior intellect to get through to the end.

Unlike previous volumes in this series, these are almost mundane stories, as they are almost entirely action oriented, and Spock seems to have reverted to his character from the first film, as he discusses with the crew the situation, though he is now amenable to disobeying orders - "Do what your captain would do".

The characterisation of the crew is a still an excellent match for the films characters. This is a continuation of the new film series' storylines, and not just a `filler' series, helped by the film's producer (and director-to-be of the next one) consulting over the plot. The artwork in this volume however seems a bit lacklustre. The individual characters are recognisably the actors, but the panel backgrounds are a bit bland and the big space scenes are just not very animated. This is still the `real' Star Trek, though you are advised to start reading the series with the earlier volumes.

Artwork is fine the story itself very lite for me !!! Not enough in depth character and not deep enough involvement or action for me for a war between the Klingons and Romulans which would be a major escalation after the events in the movie !!! I liked it butI ama trek fan so only for people who are really fans IMO .

One of a series of graphic novels based. On the 2009 film. In some novels they re boot some. Of the classic original tv series
