    Star Trek is a decades old television series that has successfully franchised its offerings into books, movies and graphic novels. Patrick Stewart had a long run as Jean-Luc Picard, the “Next Generation” captain of the Starship Enterprise. I heard that Stewart had signed up for a new Star Trek series and I was not willing to pay another streaming service for “premium access.” So when I saw this graphic novel purporting to cover the same s...

    This was a fine opening chapter and the art by Angel Hernandez is great, as usual. Picard doesn't really sound like Picard to me, but I like the dilemma he is faced with, and look forward to where this plot is going.On the clearly negative side, the inclusion of the Odyssey-class USS Verity doesn't make a lick of sense and seems more like Star Trek Online fan service than anything else. Also, I'm just not a huge fan of the design.

    Artwork is solid throughout, though the face in the cover itself feels off.The writing is heavily expository, setting up a scenario consistent with what we've come to expect based on the events of Star Trek (2009) and various hints dropped in interviews so far. The character of Raffi Musiker didn't make a great first impression. On the plus side, the story introduces a classic moral dilemma rife with dramatic potential. And it's nice to see some ...

    An alright introductory issue. It contains a fitting in-canon dilemma and decent character portrayals. It's a promising start. Art is good, though the cover makes me a bit uneasy. I can't help but keep evaluating how they did the face. It gives off a bit too much uncanny valley vibes.

    Well written with excellent artwork. It does a good job of laying out the principle characters in advance of the next 2 books and the Picard series. So far I have only seem the first two of the TV series. I am enjoying it. I watched a Youtube video yesterday made up of a panel og "experts" who wee extremely critical of the show. In my opion they are way overthinking this new chapter in the Star Trek Universe. I look at this series, the comic book...

    Was hoping for a little more on the art in this series, but I love seeing how we get to the conflicts that lead to the new Picard show. I was very intrigued by all of the maneuvering of the Romulins in this story.

    A glimpse of the unseenThis work was well done and ties well into cannon and the new series. It’s whet my appetite further for more episodes of Picard now that I’ve read this Title and seen the first episode.

    I want more! A month is too long to wait! Admiral Picard has already found himself in the midst of a Romulan pickle. The stakes are high and he has few options. And we got to see Geordi. A quick but fun read.

    Really enjoyed the story. The art work was good but not great. Overall, a great prequel to the Picard series coming up.

    InterestingSo we are back in the prime universe. Not sure about the uniforms. As for the story. Well this was written for Picard. Always the moral dilemma.

    It's a bridge between Nemesis and Picard series. It has an intriguing plot and gives you a small test to what's coming January 23rd.

    Reminds me why I don’t like comicsJust pre purchased the series to be aware of what Leads of to Star Trek Picard. After I finish this trilogy I will stick with the novels.

    Short but sweet to see Picard backWhat other rating could any of us possibly give it? We have been waiting decades to see our old friends.

    A good startThis is the first glance into the world of Star Trek: Picard. A glance into the time between Nemesis and Star Trek (2009.) The images were vibrant, I loved it.
