Star Trek: Picard’s Academy #3

Generally favorable ratings

Based on 4 critic ratings.

It’s practice day for the most important test of Cadet Picard’s Starfleet Academy career thus far!

His first test in actual space… and he is not ready.

He may as well be yelling into a black hole after being put into a group with all his least favorite colleagues… and Marty, the girl he kind of, sort of likes.

No one’s listening to his commands, and he doesn’t know how on Earth he’s supposed to see eye-to-eye with Resh, his bully and competition for top of the class!

Picard’s course is set for failure, and if he can’t figure out a way to change things soon… there goes his future.

    Storywise. This is an improvement over last month’s issue, which made Picard into a rather unlikable figure and not really in keeping with what we know of him. The confrontation between Picard and Resh was well written. Hopefully, we’ll eventually see Resh and Picard gain a mutual understanding in future issues as that seems to be where things are going. We also get a bit of character development for Picard’s other classmates too.

    After readers had to put up with a miserable version of Jean-Luc Picard for two issues, Picard’s Academy finally reveals the reasons why the Starfleet student has been acting the way he has. This third issue is a sizable gut punch on many fronts, and it’s surprisingly adult for a title geared towards younger audiences. This story might be about exploring the furthest reaches of space and even then, Picard’s Academy #3 is strikingly human.

    Not a lot of real action in Star Trek: Picard’s Academy #3. However, it is very thought-provoking. The art is definitely interesting to look at and I enjoy the differences in the character despite that they are all wearing the same uniform. I like the detail of the art in this issue. Picard is shown wearing a bandaid on his face after his fight with Resh. A condition that one of the professors notices in the end, a good detail giving this story a distinctive realism.

    This issue sacrifices any semblance of action for talk. Lots of talk. And not exciting talk either. It’s difficult to believe that such an interesting character could be made to seem so banal and forgettable.
