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.
