Overview

Star Trek: The Next Generation kicked off a whole new era of Starfleet exploration and adventure. Now the crew of the Enterprise-D continue their mission in these great comics collections!

In Maelstrom, an interplanetary peace treaty is threatened when Chief O’Brien falls under the control of a devious telepath; Riker and La Forge are taken captive by a dangerous gang of Ferengi profiteers; and the Enterprise investigates a vortex that launches them into the neutral zone — and the sights of two Romulan Warbirds!

Featuring rare interviews with LeVar Burton (Geordi La Forge) and Michael Dorn (Lt Worf), these adventures are essential reading for any Star Trek fan!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When a collection starts out with actor interviews from 2000 and 1995, the reader gets the impression that the story isn't foremost. Bonuses are nice, but they're usually in the back of the book. This volume reprints the DC Comics issues Star Trek: The Next Generation 13-18 from 1990. With so many characters, giving each some focus takes up much of any issue, but the portrayals seem accurate and in keeping with the show. From panel to panel on the same page, the same characters' faces vary greatly, from excellent likenesses to heads with features in not quite the right places. At times, it's reminiscent of the work of MAD magazine satirist Mort Drucker. Stories are self-contained, one or two issues' worth. Telepathic queens battle over who will inherit the throne. Snowboarding shore leave turns into a Ferengi fight. The ship strays into the Neutral Zone while energy beings cause crewmembers to act irrationally. They don't stray far from the types of plots seen on TV, providing more of the same to those who miss the show. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
