No comments on the Sulu and Pike chapters, since I'm not really well acquainted with the two characters compared to Jellico and Harriman. But... haha, just as I've been hoping to read a bit more on the crew of Enterprise-B, particularly Harriman and come this short. The chapter with Harriman was a pretty good one, considering the events during Generations must have been the worst thing to happen to anyone. It would have been terrible for Harriman especially to have to bear the responsibility of ...more

I wasn't sure how much I'd enjoy reading stories about secondary captains (Jelico, Sulu, Hariman), i.e. those not seen on screen for very long - but these were actually quite good short stories. I wouldn't mind having more Hariman or Jelico stories come our way! It was also interesting to see the excelsior class go from brand new (in Sulu's time) to an old 'workhorse' in Jelico's time within the same volume.

Super fun short stories and NOT of the Captain's you would expect to see in the Star Trek world. The first story talks about super old school Captain Pike! Then we have Captains Sulu, Harriman and Jellico....but some other faces that we recognize as well! Such a fun, quick read for anyone who loves the Star Trek universe!

A collection of stories featuring the little known captains. Sure we know Sulu and Pike but not a lot about their commands. The Harriman and Jellico stories also work really well and Jellico is still an @$$. In the Harriman story Bones steals the story.

This graphic novel, which I suspect will be of interest only to hardcore Trekkies, collects four stories about starship captains whose names aren't Kirk or Picard: Pike (from the original series' first pilot episode "The Cage"), Sulu, Harriman (briefly seen in the feature film Star Trek: Generations), and Jellico, a character who appeared in the two-part Next Generation episode "Chain of Command." While it's an interesting idea to more fully flesh out some of the background characters of the Sta ...more

This is a collection of four issues, each featuring a different STAR TREK captain who never got his own TV series. Personally, I'm not a fan of "one-shot" story lines, since I feel that strong, well-rounded stories cannot generally be told in a single issue. STAR TREK: CAPTAIN'S LOG does nothing to change my mind about that, but I liked the way that each installment hitched its wagon to a previous TREK adventure. The one with Christopher Pike basically gives an alternate explanation for his disf ...more
Pike is still a tragic figure, Jellico is still an ass, Harriman gets a backbone and finally kicks some butts, and Sulu is just well...Sulu. Confident, strong, wise and oh so cunning. As much as I LOVE Sulu, his story was so-so. I think Harriman's story had great potential but just felt rushed. Jellico's story is interesting but just further highlights how much of a jerk he is that one can't help but wonder, why he just doesn't retire already? A must read for any Trekker/Trekkie needing a break ...more

Four stories of lesser-explored starship Captains- Pike, Sulu, Harriman, and Jellico.
I found the photo-shopped art on two of the stories very distracting- not to my taste.
However, I have a soft spot for both Harriman and McCoy, so I enjoyed the third story best.
I've never liked Jellico and I'm sure it's not required.
Plus the bonus in Pike's tale was seeing Colt get a captaincy of her own- about time.
Quick read, good tales.

As Sulu is one of my favorite TOS I was hoping for a good tale of Captain Sulu. As it was the Sulu tale was at best average, and the Pike story had Pike giving the reader about as much angst as Peter Parker. The Harriman tale was dud and Jellico remians an uninteresting and unlikeable character. Kudos to Peter david in a different collection for at least making Harriman interesting and readable.
