Customer Reviews

I think an actual novel (with no pictures) would have done this more justice.
Chinedu P. Opara
While not a bad book, the Star Trek/Legion crossover is disappointing despite some fine moments from Roberson and a solid job by Moy.
Kevin M. Derby
I'd like to go into this further, but to do so would give away too much of the plot.

I'm a fan of intercompany crossovers in comics, provided that they make some kind of sense as to why they happen, but unfortunately, very few of them do. After 35 years of both watching Star Trek: TOS and reading The Legion of Super Heroes, I saw IDW's announcement of this crossover and immediately thought: "Of course! Why hasn't someone done this already?" And then: "It'll make sense, right?" I'm still considering that last question after completing the STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPER HEROES collected edition, but overall, it was a fun read.

Separate actions taken by both the Enterprise crew and the LOSH intersect, thereby stranding both groups on a combined alternate Earth under the interstellar government of The Imperial Planets. It's not the Mirror Universe, but close. After the obligatory meet-and-fight, the Enterprise crew and the LOSH combine their abilities to determine how to put things back the way they were. Parallels are drawn between characters from the two timelines, and they find that their encounter with this alternate Earth is not the random mistake they thought it was. It's an interesting story, and considering the identity of the villain, it's a pretty logical idea for a crossover, but I feel that the execution could have been better. I'd like to go into this further, but to do so would give away too much of the plot. Suffice to say that I had to read it a second time and still am not sure if I completely understand it, but nobody ever said alternate realities were easy.

I am a huge fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes and of the Star Trek TOS--making me the ideal audience for Chris Roberson's attempt to bring them together. But, despite some solid art from Jeffrey Moy, I was less than impressed with this book.

There are some similarities between the Legion and Star Trek. Both are products of a more optimistic age, when creators could envision a future with an intergalactic body much like the United Nations overseeing scores of worlds with different races. Having Cpt. Kirk join forces with Cosmic Boy seems natural.

But there are problems with Roberson's attempt to bring the Legion and Star Trek together. The plot is, at best, mediocre with an anti-climatic ending that wraps things up a bit too easily. While Roberson has our heroes tackle time travel and other dimensions, the plot makes little sense and does little to hold the reader's attention.

Where Roberson helps salvage the book, though certainly he does not totally redeem it, is with characterization. It's fun to see Mr. Spock and Brainiac 5 interact. Roberson is also excellent with Kirk and Shadow Lass and some of their dialogue is very memorable. Perhaps the character who stands out the most is Dr. McCoy. Roberson is excellent on pulling the strings with the good doctor.

Despite these fine examples of characterization, this story is not memorable in the least--even to a fan of both Star Trek and the Legion. While not a bad book, the Star Trek/Legion crossover is disappointing despite some fine moments from Roberson and a solid job by Moy.

Well it was supposed to be a "double-alternate" universe story combining DC and Trek universes, it felt a bit disjointed from BOTH. And the story was pretty sterile. I guess I only got this book because I like both sets of characters, but alas, I was disappointed. I think an actual novel (with no pictures) would have done this more justice.

As a Trekkie and a Legionnaire, I quite enjoyed this cross-over. Some fans take this stuff so seriously but its an enjoyable team-up. Funny how when DC was publishing Trek, they never did a single crossover. At Marvel, the Trek gang were teamed with the X-men and that worked well too. I liked the artwork and the storyline plus all the covers were awesome (my favorite was Kirk and all the Legionnaire women). IDW did an excellent job and I hope they do it again with Trek Next Generation and an older Legion. Kudos to all involved with this project.

Let's face it...the thought of Spock V Brainiac 5 is enjoyable to contemplate. In Star Trek/Legion of Super-Heroes it comes true. As an added bonus, you get to see interactions between the Star Trek and DC Universes which are quite fun. All-in-all, the read was quite enjoyable. The artwork is competent as well.

I watched the original Star Trek as a child, about the same age I read the Legion of Super Hero comics (for 12 cents an issue). This cross-over makes a lot of sense. Both teams operated in outer space in a multi-planet, multi-species, science fiction setting. It's a good story, with elements blended from both settings. It's a big story, with enough of a challenge to justify a medium sized team of heroes. I wish there had been more of the 31st century superheroes, but if there were, I'd probably complain that each hero didn't have enough to do.
