If you love Star Trek then this trade is for you. It’s visually appealing with solid lettering and a fun plot with humour, heart and references. Anyone who enjoys Lower Decks will enjoy this as it does feel like another episode, a bonus one if you will
The big question is does this final issue both live up expectations and end satisfyingly? It does indeed! It’s also crammed full of the usual references to all things Trek, plenty of humour, actual illusions to science and Boimler in a cape. There’s also action, space battles and computer hacking sentient holograms. Phew.
Everything about this issue works as well as any Lower Decks episode and is just plain fun. It’s playing with concepts and ideas that are staples of Star Trek but isn’t mired in nostalgia. If you’re looking for a book featuring Dracula this Halloween start reading Lower Decks. You’ll enjoy it.
“This plays to that cheeky nostalgia Lower Decks does so well. I had a great time reading it. The art successfully translates the animation and the writing means rereads are rewarded. If you are a fan of Lower Decks already then this is the comic for you. If you are not then hopefully this comic may change your mind.”
