Star Trek: New Visions - A Review

A Review

Six stories from the original Star Trek universe was too much for this old timer to resist.  John Byrne had done an excellent job of resurrecting the characters, settings, and scenarios from those brought to life by Jim Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy (aka ”Bones”), Montgomery Scott (“Scotty”), Sulu, Uhura, and Chekov on the small screen.  Using a photo realistic technique that gives renewed life to the characters, the stories in this compilation play well to the eye.

At just over 100 pages the current graphic novel combines six previously published stories, plus one new story, into a delightful collection - just right for a couple of nights of light reading.  Turn off the TV, put aside the remote, stop surfing the net, and reminisce about an earlier time (?) when we were called to

To explore strange new worlds,
To seek out new life and new civilizations,
To boldly go where no man has gone before.

This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are my own.
