More About the Author

Wil Wheaton's successful acting career began in 1986 with acclaimed roles in Stand By Me and Toy Soldiers. He continued to build his resume through his teen years as series regular 'Wesley Crusher' on Star Trek: The Next Generation and opposite Robin Williams in Flubber. But Wil is much more than just an actor; he's an author, blogger, voice actor, widely-followed Twitter user, and a champion of geek culture.

Wil currently splits his time between acting and writing. In 2010, he joined the cast of Eureka as Doctor Isaac Parrish, and recurs as Sheldon Cooper's nemesis, Evil Wil Wheaton, on The Big Bang Theory. He's published three acclaimed books: Just A Geek, Dancing Barefoot, and The Happiest Days of Our Lives. His latest books are Sunken Treasure, The Day After and Other Stories, and Memories of the Future, Volume One. All of his books grew out of Wil's immensely popular, award-winning weblog, which he created at WIL WHEATON dot NET and currently maintains at WIL WHEATON dot NET: in Exile.

I mostly got this because of the Wil Wheaton story, "Cura te Ipsum."

While I found that satisfyingly good, I was surprised at how good the rest of the stories were, and how nicely the familiar characters and environments were translated to Manga form! A nice surprise and a good read.

This "Manga style" illustrated novel has several short stories or episodes centering around The Original Star Trek TV series. Each short story is written and illustrated by a different writer and artist. Because of this, each story has it's own unique style.

I think this concept is very interesting and has the potential to keep this series fresh and creative. The dialog in these books are pretty true to the Original Series and the artwork is very good too.

The stories in Volume 2 of this series didn't seem to be as good as the stories in the first volume. I was definitely left with a feeling that something was missing. And some of the illustrations of the characters didn't seem as recognizable. Also, the stories weren't very creative and some referred too much to previous TV episodes. I think this only makes hard core fans bored and new fans confused. Some of the stories seemed too similar to other plots already told within the Star Trek universe. The whole point of Star Trek was to boldly go where no one (or story) has gone before... not to rehash or revisit the past. Not all the stories are bad and for the most part, the dialog and art is very good... but I hope volume 3 will have better stories to tell.
