    Star Trek: The Motion Picture—Echoes has been a fun Star Trek Adventure that I truly enjoyed. I loved seeing a story involving the Crew just after Star Trek: The Motion Picture and I loved that they used the Romulans and parallel universe versions of two of Kirk’s famous crew. The alternative version of Uhura was particularly well written and I enjoyed her warning to Kirk in the final few pages of the issue because it works as good foreshadowing for the events we saw in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

    Despite a gorgeous cover, this issue featured some uneven artwork inside – some of it bordering on amateurish. While the writing has been generally strong, several characters’ dialogue devolves into an inappropriate level of silliness.

    It would be a let down, then, if there was no room in the IDW roster of Star Trek titles to fill in more of the gap leading up to Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan. It seems that more than the Human Adventure is just beginning, so let it not come to a premature end. If you have room for a comic about Picard’s Academy days, IDW, surely you have space for some more of this.

    With any mini-series that attempts to fill out events that happened “off-screen” for established characters, it’s always good to wonder if said series is able to justify its existence when all is said and done. Echoes does have some interesting character moments for the crew of the Enterprise, including seeing Spock in the captain’s chair while Kirk deals with more physical matters. Ultimately, Echoes feels like a worthy tale for die-hard fans of the original Trek, though might not do the trick for those who are looking for a new entry into Star Trek lore when IDW currently has so many more offerings to expand on the sci-fi universe.
