Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation—Best of Captain Picard

Star Trek: The Next Generation—Best of Captain Picard

In the most recent episode of Young Sheldon, it exposed one of the open secrets of Star Trek fandom. That there lies a schism between the different generations. Of course, this is nothing new. As this very issue lies within the Star Wars fandom, one which divides them, and is very apparent in the how the fans feel about The Book Of Boba Fett.  

As the scene that expositions this difference, was when Sheldon got into a debate with another fan of whether or not ST:TNG is as good or better than ST:TOS. They had gone over all the reasons why one was better than the other. As a fan of all the series, I can honestly say that love the shows after the original cast, as they broadened that world and made us all fall in love with new characters and worlds. I especially ST:TNG, as it  fulfilled the promise the original series gave the world.. As I am partial to one captain, and with his new series, I can see I am not the only one , as IDW decided to do a collection of past stories in in a beautiful one shot, Star Trek: The Next Generation—Best of Captain Picard.

In “The Q Conflict”, Q creates a conflict between the TOS, TNG, DS9 and Voyager crews. In “The Mirror Broken#1”, we find a very evil version of the crew in the Mirror Universe, one where war is where they thrive. In “ DC Originals:TNG#1-Return to Raimon Part 1”,Picard uncovers a conspiracy to murder a monarch, one that puts the away crew in danger. In the last story“Picard#1”,  we find out about what transpired in Picard’s final year before the events of the first season of Picard.

Overall, Star Trek: The Next Generation—Best of Captain Picard is an excellent collection that shows the character’s transcendence. The stories by the different creators are fun and action packed. The art by the different creators are beautiful. Altogether, this set of stories shows why fans have long loved this character.
