Review: Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #3

Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #3

There are times in your life, where you are the only person people can turn to. In sports, they often glorify this as being born for the situation. I can’t count on my hands how many times I have heard this about the greats like Jordan and LeBron. The truth is  we all have a purpose.

There are situations in life which causes each of us to step up. This is where your life experiences inform your actions. This where the rubber meets the road. In the spotlight miniseries, Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #3, we catch up with Discovery’s own Detmer as she faces a unique threat

We are taken to an ice planet,  where we meet a young Keyla Detmer,  when she only dreamt of being a Starfleet officer AS she plays with the wildlife, she encounters a what looks like her grown up version, in what seems to be a anomaly of quantum physics, where the same person eat different ages meet.  As she soon finds out she suffered a grave inury and this was an out of body experience . By the issue’s end, the two Detmers comfort each other, giving the present one, an  appreciation of the journey and the younger version, hope in her future.  

Overall, Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #3 is a fun deep dive into Detmer. The story by Johnson and Beyer is pleasant. The art by the creative team is spectacular. Altogether, a story that gives a different look into this secondary character.

Review: Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #2

Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #2

I have professed on here how much I love Star Trek. As the franchise usually leans very much into the cerebral  type of science fiction that I have always loved. It was not only philosophical but spiritual on many levels.  Of us better by challenging and questioning our belief systems.

That is why each series was revolutionary, as it showed evolution in thought is possible as long as you are open to it. One of them being Deep Space Nine, which had the first Black Captain and did not actually take place on a ship. it also was  the first time a species changed in the franchise, from the first appearance of the Trill on ST:TNG, it was because of actress, Terry Farrell, that they looked to make the alien race, more palatable. In Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #2 we catch up with  Discovery’s own Trill, Adira, and Gray, and just how their epic story started.

We find Adira and Grey, as they reminisce about life before the “Burn”,  before they get to  the Discovery ,when Adira had a promising Starfleet career, and this new life only gives them doubt. As the two get into some mischief, they run into their superior. Admiral Senna Tal, who also is a Trill, who offers Gray, some life changing news. The find out that he is dying and he has asked Gray to be his host, and life was getting better until a san asteroid destroyed the ship and lefty Adira, physically alone. By the issue’s end, Adira finds their way back to Gray, reuniting their love of a lifetime.

Overall, Star Trek: Discovery – Adventures in the 32nd Century #2 is a beautiful love story in the Star Trek Universe. The story by Johnson and Beyer is enjoyable. The art by the creative team is stunning. Altogether, a fun back story that shows how love endures.
