Captain Sisko and the crew of the U.S.S. Theseus team up with Starfleet Operative Kingsnake – a.k.a. HARRY KIM – to stop the war-loving Tzenkethi from launching their fleet across the Quadrant. Unfortunately for Starfleet, however, the Tzenkethi leader has a surprise guest of his own who will stop at nothing to thwart Starfleet’s plans.
Meanwhile, when the crew is greeted by continuous – and frightening – earthquakes, Dr. Crusher realizes there is more going on with the planet than they may be able to survive…
SciFiPulseTo sum up. I'm really enjoying this story so far and look forward to seeing how it evolves over the next few months.
COMICONAn already dicey mission takes on a whole new dimension in Star Trek #14 when a perpetual old foe enters the picture. A series that showcases such love to the franchise continues to grow in the most comforting, surprising, and welcoming ways. Truly a must-read for any level of Star Trek fan.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: An interesting and compelling story from Kelly and Lanzing. I like the action in the beginning of the issue and how it informs the reader about the culture of the Tzenkethi. I also really enjoyed the diplomatic moments in the story as well and the Romulan complication adds some great drama to the arc. The Art: To delivers some great art in the issue. The Tzenkethi design is fantastic and I really loved the visual style of the issue and its characters.
ComicBook.comStar Trek #14 is another stellar installment of the IDW Publishing ongoing series, but I am left wondering if Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly dropped in that one early line about leaving Tom Paris and B'Elanna Torres' kid with Harry Kim before they realized they'd want to use Harry because, as nerve-wracking as leaving a child with grandparents might be, it still seems preferable to having that child tagalong to a warzone by a large margin. Putting that aside this is a Star Trek story told with swaggers, from Harry "Kingsnake" Kim knowing his worth, to Data getting increasingly comfortable in the captain's chair, to Dr. Crusher doing science first and asking permission second. Marcus To brings a lot of energy to the book with his linework and clear storytelling and seems to be having a hell of a time drawing these dinosaur alien people. There are interesting wrinkles sprinkled within, as Sisko's reputation for unsavory political maneuvering for the greater good precedes him as he tries to persuade the Tzenkenthi that he's on the level. Any Star Trek fan is going to enjoy this issue (and series), but it'll be especially fun for fans of the characters named above.
Get Your Comic OnIf the “Day of Blood” event cemented that Star Trek was here to stay, then “A Savage World of Glass and Bone” is the perfect way to build on those foundations. Fast-paced storytelling, a shock ending and character returns, what more could a Trek fan ask for?
