In this book, author John Byrne - a talented artist who has hand-drawn a number of other enjoyable comic-book Trek tales - manipulates existing screen images and uses other electronically designed 'sets' and special effects to tell new stories. While some images are more obviously photo-shopped than others, I found the overall result terrific, capturing the fun, excitement and character interplay of the TV show. Of the 3 stories presented here, only the first disappoints slightly, with a somewhat anti-climatic ending (although there's a fun cameo of an unexpected character to watch for right near the end). The Mirror Universe and time-paradox stories are both cracking good fun though, followed by a sweet short story at the end. I recommend it as an addition to any Trek fan's bookshelf.

I read a library copy of the paperback.
There is a bit of controversy, I understand, behind this ‘new’ approach of comics-legend John Byrne – a photomontage style.
Live action photos are reworked into new situations and new stories to tell an original series Star Trek story written by fan Byrne.
Does it work? Mostly I would say, yes.
The voices of the actors come through but then it is their faces so that’s easy. There are some anomalies such as Uhura being referred to several times as ‘Miss Uhura’ which grates and pulls the reader out of the experience.
The concept then, for me, works fine.
What I was less happy with were the stories.
These are not really ‘original’ at all.
We get a sequel to the Gary Mitchell pilot which excited but petered out, a sequel to the Mirror Mirror universe episode which was done much better many years ago in comic form and an attempt at ‘serious’ science fiction with a ‘time’ tale but the plot here is hardly new and fails to engage.
The collection ends with a short chapter explaining where Janice Rand went which also is ultimately dull.
In the final analysis this is a valiant exercise in nostalgia but unfortunately not in entertainment

HASH(0xa4a7c6d8) out of 5 stars Not as good as Byrne's ealier Trek work 30 Nov. 2014
By Rob Caswell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've really enjoyed Byrne's Trek efforts to date. They show a disciplined passion and respect for Roddenberry's creation, infused some good good creativity and deft interweaving of bits and characters of the Trek mythos. But these four photo novels stories just didn't have the same elegance and punch for me. They were enjoyable enough - and certainly not bad Trek tales - but I can't see referring back to them many times as I have with Byrne's earlier IDW Trek works. The "New Visions" work just feels like it's missing a spark. It's hard to say how much of my impression comes from the graphic format. I readily admit I'm a big fan of Byrne's illustrative skills, even if he feels a disappointment in not capturing likenesses as close as he wishes he could. I've always found them a delight, regardless.

HASH(0xa4aeb450) out of 5 stars Byrne Nails it. 26 Nov. 2014
By James M. Cirile - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
More than any writer since EVER, John Byrne captures the voices of the original crew. This is the best Star Trek since First Contact. Cons: the editor is asleep at the wheel; typos! The original graphics are pretty good overall, but a few concessions to lack of good source photos have been made, such as when the crew goes to an irradiated planet with no enviro suits or jackets. That said, this is a must-buy for all classic Trek fans. This will put a big smile on your face!
HASH(0xa4aeb39c) out of 5 stars A Must-Have For Any Trek Fan! 15 July 2015
By David Macheska - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a long-time "Star Trek" fan, I fondly remember the Original Series photo-novels of the 1970's. Trek writer John Byrne carries on that fine tradition with "Star Trek: New Visions Volume 1." Reading this volume was like discovering lost episodes of TOS. A must-have for any "Trek" fan!
HASH(0xa4aeb900) out of 5 stars Byrne nails it with creative photo-montage art! 16 Jun. 2015
By FredD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Byrne nails it with creative art. What a good way to extend the life of the old franchise! Photo montage using pictures of the shows and computer art. I enjoy the books. They read more like written short stories than comics. The stories are in my opinion topical and interesting. One story is about Harry Mudd being changed into a lookalike of Kirk, and the story is pretty good.

HASH(0xa4aeb90c) out of 5 stars Great Fun! 6 May 2015
By Talvi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great idea - taking 'screenshots' of the original series characters and using them to either create a new story or continue on from one of the previous stories. And for the most part, it does work well. The effect is much like the those architectural preview images of real people pasted into a computer generated background that shows what the project could look like when completed. It's fun for fans of the series to see those characters anew or to get more story on famous episodes such as the Doomsday Machine and Amok Time.

The stories are varied but nearly all reference a specific episode in mind (a necessity when using characters, I suppose). From a Ronald Tracey inspired story of revenge (The Omega Glory), to Klingons trying to put one over on the Federation (in TOS' rather silly way), to a very funny Harry Mudd being stuck with Kirk's face (a chuckle worthy ending worth the price of the book alone!). Star Trek TOS at times really can't be taken seriously and Byrne has faithfully captured that innocent and less serious time.

I won't say that all the stories captured my attention. And the background CGI visuals were a bit rough in places. Nitpicky details such as Tracey having blood on his face from the original episode fight that should have been cleaned off before insertion also kind of bugged. But in all, it was a greatly enjoyable read. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
