Format: Paperback
If you are anxious for adventure, you'll love this graphic novel. My favorite section is THE RETURN OF THE WORTHY part written by my favorite graphic novelist Bill Mumy and Peter David, but the whole book is stellar! It is very imaginative as not only the old characters are brought back with a great sensation but new characters are brought in as well. I like this novel better than I even liked the show! Brilliant storyline as each chapter is outlined by a very interesting quote and thought. Great artwork from the Penciller Gordon Purcell, Inker Arne Starr, Letterer Bob Pinaha, Colorist Tom McCraw and Editor Robert Greenberger. It is based on Star Trek by Gene Roddenberry. Everyone collaborated well together to bring us this extraordinary journey back to the days of Star Trek with a whole new plot and twist. I really enjoyed this whole production and had a hard time putting it down. Also there are great interviews at the beginning of the book with George Takai and William Shatner. It keeps you interested and intrigued from the beginning to the end. Whooom! Zwakk! Fwaak! Fwakow! This book is really outta this world!

HASH(0x8fd8a6ac) out of 5 stars But above average in humor 1 Jan. 2014
By BarClay - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection lacks the invention the previous collections had. The "Return of the Worthy" (scripted with Billy Mumy") was Peter David's last work on the series, and it felt like it. The humor is still there, but the story felt unrealistic and forced. Perhaps Mr. David recognized that he had run out of ideas and willingly turned the reins of story telling to others. After "The Return of the Worthy", other writers continued the series. "The Worldsinger" stand alone was derivative and uninteresting, but Howard Weinstein began his run on the series after that. He had a good grasp of the characters, and it shows. Many people do not like Ken Hooper and Bob Dvorak's artwork, but I found their work interesting. While their representation of the Enterprise Crew is not as recognizable as Gordon Purcell's, their ability to tell the story is just as good. All in all, this was an average collection, but still above average in humor.

HASH(0x90061090) out of 5 stars and the PAD era comes to a close 3 Aug. 2010
By culture lover - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the last of the Titan Books reprinting of DC Comics' Star Trek and covers Star Trek (2nd series) issues #13 - 18. It contains the last of Peter David (PAD)'s regular scripts and begins the Howard Weinstein era (who would continue until the series cancellation with issue 80).

The book opens with the three-part "Return of the Worthy," which is basically "What If Star Trek met 'Lost in Space'?" This story is co-written by Bill Mumy, one of the stars of the TV series. Next up is "Worldsinger," a one-shot by J. Michael Straczynski concerning an individual who wishes to remain on his home planet, which is about to self-destruct. The Enterprise is tasked with evacuating all sentient inhabitants but can't force the Worldsinger to leave as he claims he will commit suicide if they do. This presents an interesting conundrum for Kirk & Co. Artwork for all of the preceding is by the excellent Gordon Purcell. This volume closes with "Partners", a two-part tale in which the Federation and the Klingon Empire are in a race to colonize a new sector. When supply ships from BOTH governments are attacked by super-powered pirates, Kirk and the Klingons reluctantly decide to join forces. A good effort by Mr. Weinstein is marred by the temporary loss of artist Purcell. Instead, the story is delineated by Ken Hooper. It's an adequate job that suffers from comparison to Purcell and inker Arne Starr.

I was never a fan of "Lost in Space," so the Worthy trilogy, despite PAD's scripting, doesn't do much for me. The remaining half of the book are solid efforts. If forced to choose, however, I would probably go with Star Trek Archives Volume 1: Best of Peter David. In addition to the Worthy trilogy, this volume contains PAD's swan song: "Once a Hero!" and the moving "Scotty's Story."

This book also contains candid, if dated, interviews from George Takei (Sulu) and William Shatner (Kirk) from the 1990's.
