Review: “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – The Scorpion Run #1”

“Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – The Scorpion Run #1” is a delightful journey back into the universe of the beloved streaming series. Reading it, you’re instantly transported to an episode that could’ve seamlessly fit within the show’s timeline. The portrayal of the Enterprise is immaculate, with the artist showcasing a remarkable ability to capture the likeness of the series’ characters, bridging the gap between screen and page.

True to Trek’s spirit, the narrative doesn’t shy away from posing complex moral quandaries. In this issue, the crew finds themselves navigating an interstellar landscape riddled with beings who challenge their core principles and values. This essence of Trek – the constant juxtaposition of the Federation’s ideals against contrasting civilizations – is captured with finesse. Complementing the storytelling is the vibrant color palette, infusing the panels with a sense of awe and wonder synonymous with space exploration.

However, not all elements are out of this world. The designs for some of the other starships fall into the realm of the generic, a recurrent issue that has slightly marred Trek’s legacy over the years.

Nevertheless, “The Scorpion Run #1” has firmly set its phasers to “enthrall.” Despite minor hitches, it successfully rekindles that familiar Trek magic, leaving readers eagerly anticipating the next starry adventure. Warp speed ahead to issue #2!
