    Picard’s Academy continues to give us a bit of insight into Jean Luc’s early days at Starfleet Academy and shows how difficult he found it to make friends. However, one of the elements missing from the story is some of the incidents mentioned throughout TNG’s run whenever Picard talked about his time in the Academy or whenever someone else mentioned it. For example, in The Best of Both Worlds Admiral Hanson talks about how Picard surprised everyone by winning the Academy Marathon. It would be great to see some of these anecdotal stories brought to life in this series.

    With just one issue left, this story is turning into one that will be hard to part with.

    My favourite issue of the series to-date. An effortless example of how a long-running franchise like Star Trek has the versatility to take one of its most steadfast dramatic characters and put them in to a YA adventure story.

    Star Trek: Picard’s Academy #5 continues this story but this time we might actually see actual growth in Jean Luc Picard. He is becoming more and more the captain.
