The Best of Both Generations
10 July 2017 - Perth

Wow, two comic books in as many days, but then again I am doing so because once I return to Adelaide (I'm currently sitting in a hotel in Perth), I'll be catching up with a friend, if only to offload these comic books onto him, though I'm not entirely sure if he is all that enthusiastic with me dumping comic books onto him since he isn't all that much of a collector – maybe he reads them and then moves them on afterwards, creating one huge cycle o

This book was published in 1992 and I can't believe that I have missed out on reading it for the last 16 years! I loved this Graphic Novel!

The issue collects the 8 original comics about the planet Modala as well as an interesting letter from Walter Koenig who played Chekov in the original ST.

David's TNG writing doesn't really sound authentic, especially for the Ferengi, which is a little off-putting, but since the read is so quick, it's not a lingering problem. Probably the most glarin ...more

Good yarn about the Star Trek universe. The intro by Chekov was nothing, so shoot over this dribble. The story spilts between the old Trek and TNG, so you get all your favorite characters.

Like the cover shows, when a planet grows a Ferengi face only Young Kirk, Old Spock, Old McCoy, Middle-aged Picard and two small Enterprises can stop it.
