As an 'original' Trekkie I might be a little biased that the older series was the best and that is certainly true. However I liked the film reboot and enjoyed its new take on the ST universe.
Don't get me wrong now, I understand that the writers still have to loosely follow the original arc, but I was a little disappointed that they didn't take a little more creative licence with this comic series. Most of the stories are as they were and are surprisingly cut short considering they used to be 50mins episodes.
However I still enjoy seeing the new crew take on original missions, just don't expect any major changes.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 26 Dec. 2013
Format: Paperback
The stories from issues #1-4 of IDW's Star Trek comic book are collected as Star Trek Volume 1. There are two two-issue stories presented here - "Where No Man Has Gone Before" and "The Galileo Seven", both adapted from the original TV series' stories. These are very-well told stories, with good art and scripting. These characters really do feel like the crew from the recent film(s), and the stories feel as if they are set in the same universe and continuity, helped by the fact that the films' writer and producer is involved with producing the comic, which has meant that stories that are referenced in the film "Into Darkness" appear in later volumes. These two stories take place after the first of the new "Star Trek" films.

THE SPOILER ZONE
Issues #1 & #2: "Where No Man Has Gone Before" sees the Enterprise approaching the boundary marking the edge of the Galaxy, where they find a distress beacon launched from the long-lost SS Valiant, which partially describes the incident that lead to the captain destroying his ship... And soon, after crossing the boundary, the same incidents start to occur again... Mixed in with the original story are `character-building' scenes for the `new' crew and their time-line, with Mr Scott trying to repair damage and wear-and-tear still in place from the battle with the Narada and the escape from the black hole; while Kirk discusses why he's brought two of is old friends from the Academy aboard as part of the crew. They will play a major part in the unfolding story.

Issues #3 & #4: "The Galileo Seven" is a straightforward retelling of the original TV story, again with some character-building scenes directly related to the `new' universe's crew, along with an amended ending that is more in keeping with the captain's new character; and Uhura's...

As re imagining of the original series, these stories are easily recognisable to fans yet still make for a very enjoyable read and obviously to those not familiar with the original series these are new and really well told stories

Adapting the original series episodes with the "new" crew may seem like heresy to some, but this collection from IDW breathes new life into these stories.
Featuring "Where no man has gone before" and the "Galileo 7" it's a slim volume but well worth checking out, the re-imagining updates some of story elements for a modern audience and makes them fresh whilst still remaining faithful.
Characters react differently and in the case of the first story a certain character is missing altogether, but it didn't matter as the the teleplays are adapted so well and suit the new interpretations excellently.
Even if you only try this out of curiousity as I did, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how good this is.
Hopefully further issues will continue to build on the new movie continuity without falling foul of it as DC did in the 80's.

Received the book this morning, read it through in half an hour and I did enjoy it overall. Nice comic style, good short stories. There were a couple of points that really bugged me though...

1. Kirk's amazing colour-changing eyes; one page they are brown (and clearly like Shatner's NOT Pine's) then the next they are blue. It was like the artist would suddenly remember who he was suppose to be drawing and would correct it, then forget again on the next page!!

2. Particular emphasis on the Spock/Uhura relationship - I want adventure and space travel (and I want a stoic, seemingly emotionless half-Vulcan, not a sappy romantic, happy to suddenly show all emotions right from the off half-Vulcan)...though that isn't so much the comic, more a personal opinion about the whole reboot!

Anyway, good comic but it's not a keeper for the collection...(will be putting it up for sale this afternoon!)

I ordered the product as a little gift to myself, as it was on offer. I shopped around online and it was the best deal available. The product arrived promptly and in good condition. The stories and artwork were of a consistently high standard throughout, spinning exciting new and surprising tales from original series season one episodes. The characterization, both in terms of likenesses and writing, were all well defined and fitting. Well worth a read for anybody who loves the original series of Star Trek or the J J Abrams movie / alternate timeline. Highly recommended.

As an avid devotee of Star Trek since it's beginning I was looking forward to reading this but did not realise it was in comic form and unfortunately the text is so small I can not read it. Ah! change font size I thought, unfortunately unavailable. So I will never know what the new star trek is like.
