** spoiler alert ** Star Trek comics have been around for years, but in 2006 the first Star Trek manga Shinsei Shinsei was published. I remember being thrilled to find it at my local book store. It's Star Trek and it's manga. What is there not to love about this. I reread it last night, and I'm glad I did.

Shinsei Shinsei has two standout stories, "Side Effects" and "Orphans." "Side Effects" gives us the origin story of a species that is a large part of the TNG universe, and it's fascinating and heartbreaking all at the same time.

As the title "Orhpans" suggests, the story deals with children who have been displaced after the dissolution of an empire. And (bonus!)there are giant mecha robots with swords fighting the Enterprise, and that is just seriously cool.

Overall, I think Shinsei Shinsei provided a great entry into the world of Star Trek manga.
