I didn't know what to think about a manga of Star Trek, but I found the concept quite interesting and I bought it. This manga has 8 different stories, that they are the selection as the best ones from the 3 previously published individual mangas. And I found 3 of those stories extremely good, totally recommended to be read for Trekkers. The good stories in my opinion are "Side Effects", "Art of War" and "Orphans". These 3 stories are well written, quite good illustrated and these stories have th...more
For the most part, this is a fantastic collection of short manga - particularly if you're a fan of the classic show. Many of these were like watching the old show actually, and seemed to get the interaction amongst the characters spot on. Recommended if you're both a manga fan and a star trek fan.
Originally when I found this, I thought it was a comic book from the most recent Star Trek movie, as that is something I can seen teens getting into (which is where it was shelved). They seem to be putting manga on everything these days, though they aren't really manga (just on newsprint, but not in the traditional Japanese manga format).

Fun and a good read if one likes Star Trek or manta.

Always nice to see another view of our pop icons.
Lovely art, all subtlety different take on the famous characters, but very recognizable and fun in a new light.
Great stories too, it felt like I was watching new episodes, almost. Especially the Borg origin, very interesting!
A very enjoyable read. I especially liked Side Effects and Art of War, but most of the other stories were solidly entertaining as well. The only letdowns were the mecha story (doesn't fit in my vision of Star Trek) and the gender warfare story (unoriginal and uninteresting).
I just saw the movie last week and I loved it. When I went to Barnes and Nobles, I saw this manga edition of star trek, I decided to pick it up and buy it. It's a cool book. It's just all the set-aside adventures of Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Sulu, Chekov, and Scotty.

for the most part a fantastic reanimation of the long dead original series! gives you the same feelings, strikes the same balance between the cerebral and the adventure.
All the stories were excellently written and drawn.
I like the comic. It is hardcore
