Acclaimed writer Chris Sequeira (Justice League Adventures and Sherlock Holmes: Dark Detective) and Eisner-nominated artist Joe Eisma (Morning Glories and Engineward) are bringing horror to the holodeck in a new four-issue miniseries in the month of October!

After enduring an anxiety-ridden passage through a solar storm, Captain Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise take to celebrating Halloween to reset the mood. But while the Earth holiday involves sweet treats and other festivities, they soon learn that fear is in season when crew members begin to go missing one by one.

    Holo-Ween gets off to a really strong start with a story that immediately grips you and has you wondering what is going to happen from one page to the next. Christopher Sequeira’s idea to resurrect Redjac as the villain for this book is a good one as he is an enemy that can be horrific and fun in equal measure and his ties to Jack the Ripper only add to the fun.

    Star Trek: Holo-Ween #1 is a fun opening to the limited series. It legitimises its heightened sense of horror through traditional Trek means and so will fit well with the Trek audience as well as anyone looking for a little horror this Halloween season.

    The Story: An entertaining yet ultimately silly Halloween story that pits the Enterprise crew against one of the original series goofier antagonists. The story has some fun elements and an engaging premise. I like the mix of horror elements and classic monster movie tropes and the story does end on an interesting cliffhanger that makes me want to see what happens next.

    The Art: Eisma crafts some visually engaging art in the issue. I enjoy the visual style a lot and the details throughout the issue.

    Star Trek’s holodeck has been a venue for pain and pleasure over the years. Unfortunately, it’s the former here thanks to some inconsistent writing and non-detailed artwork. It’s too bad, because it’s a fun idea but one that is not well executed.

    Set The Tape

    With Holodeck malfunctions having given us some of the more memorable diversions from Star Trek: The Next Generation and its contemporaries, Holo-Ween is certainly getting into the spirit of things, by giving us a very literal ‘ghost in the machine’ here, and the end results could be quite spook-tacular.

    Star Trek: Holo-Ween puts the TNG cast up against the TOS villain Redjac in a Halloween-themed miniseries. The book takes quite a bit of time attempting to build up Jack as a credible threat, as it’s only after he injects himself with Borg nanites that he even poses a threat to Data inside the Holodeck. Admittedly, turning the Enterprise into a haunted house flooded with Holodeck creations could be fun, but this opening issue spends so much time having Deanna Troi drone on about the concept of fear that it forgets to be frightening or psychologically stimulating.
