Anonymous said: A local book sale has a hardcover copy of "Spock's World" available for fifty cents. Is it worth it?

YES. I recommend you read The Wounded Sky (and My Enemy, My Ally) first, but they’re not required, really.

black bow: Betty Felongold peplum dress: oasapblack & gold watch: NOOKAblack tights: uniqloblack over-the-knee boots: rainbow
I ordered this dress because it’s basically a business casual version of the Star Trek: TOS dresses, and now I just need two other girls to get the dress in different colors so we can form a proper Star Trek girl group. I ordered this dress in an XL, which fits great in the bust/hips, but it’s a bit loose and baggy in the waist. I’ll have to take it in at the waist before I wear it again (or maybe style it with a belt?).

Betty! So super-great.

There’s a new installment of Boldly Gone, my irregularly-updated Star Trek webcomic with Bruce McCorkindale available at this link. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically The Office but  all Trekked up.

Anonymous said: There's a Humble Bundle of Star Trek comics available at the moment. Are there any in there you'd recommend?

You mean this Humble Bundle right here? First of all, I’m asking you all to please get it because all of the money helps the Hero Initiative, a nonprofit that helps comics creators who need help with medical and living expenses. Since we don’t live in the 23rd century and practical healthcare is something that Republicans are convinced ends with baby-murder factories fueled by the corpses senior citizens despite a raft of factual evidence proving otherwise, it’s the sort of thing I’m sorry to see we need, but urge people to throw money at.

Anyway.

The Gold Key archives are goofy and terrible but also pretty wonderful in their own way.

That Best of Klingons (an oxymoron if there ever was one #spaceracism) volume has the first four issues of the DC Star Trek series, which were the actual first time that Trek comics were pretty good, so that’s worth checking out. 

Surprising no one that reads this Tumblr, the Gary Seven series Assignment Earth is a big hoot for me. The same guy, John Byrne, wrote and drew the comics that are in the Romulans Treasury Edition, and even if they go against my personal continuity, they’re still fine tales of alien intrigue and politics. 

I thought Burden of Knowledge and The Enterprise Experiment were fine, if a bit too “licensed product” feeling for my tastes (I like when my comics feel like comics and not an adaptation of the script) and for some reason, I never read Mission’s End. Huh. I should get on that. 

The NuTrek comics are…they are what they are — things designed to make you buy them because you like those movies. I’m glad to see that Countdown To Darkness is in there because it’s got some intriguing little twists to the timeline that I liked. The first volume of the ongoing Star Trek series is pretty weak, to be frank, but over the last year, that book has has had a remarkable turnaround and later volumes are worth checking out.

Oh, yeah. I wrote a lot about Star Trek comics for ComicsAlliance a while back.

Hailing frequencies are open today! Ask questions about Star Trek and get answers…maybe!
