Review: Star Trek: The Q Conflict #1

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #1

When a dispute between godlike beings threatens the galaxy, it will take all of Starfleet’s best captains to stop them. Join James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Kathryn Janeway, and Benjamin Sisko as they go head-to-head in a competition that will determine the fate of the Earth and beyond. Will they be able to emerge victorious, or will they be torn apart by The Q Conflict?

The crews of The Next Generation, The Original Series, Voyager, and Deep Space 9 come together to face their biggest challenge yet!

I’ve enjoyed Star Trek but am not a huge fan. The concept of bringing together the crews of so many different series is rather interesting enough to get me interested in checking out this new miniseries.

Written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton, the first issue issue feels like the beginning of a Next Generation film with Starfleet scrambling to evacuate a planet about to be consumed by a dying star. But, there’s something unnatural about it and things begin to get weird as Q becomes involved and it turns out it’s all a game of higher beings.

The first issue is a solid setup getting to the conflict while delivering an issue that feels like it’d fit right on the big screen. The build is solid and when we get to the end the conflict we expect isn’t quite as straightforward with a hint things are going to be mixed up a bit.

The art by David Messina with ink by Elisabetta D’Amico, color by Alexandra Alexakis, and lettering by Neil Uyetake is not bad but doesn’t quite meet the quality of the story itself. There’s too much of a drop off in detail at times and just a general lack of dynamic moments to make it really stick out. The art does the job but also isn’t a selling point. The story is the driver here.

The issue’s story is good but the art falls a bit short in making it truly exciting. There’s a lot of potential here and the start of a story that could be rather exciting and be a story that fits right into the Star Trek cannon. The story is entertaining and definitely worth it for Star Trek fans. For the rest, it’s a crapshoot.
