The author did a superb job with the writing and the artist did a excellent job in my opinion capturing Spock's likeness from young to old. This is a book for anyone who is a Star trek fan, A fan of Spock or both. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes stories that answer questions that you have had and the author answers them in their interpertation.
STAR TREK: SPOCK-REFLECTIONS is a supplemental tie-in to the STAR TREK movie. The story follows Spock as he secretly travels from Romulus to Earth and back to Romulus. Along the way, the reader sees flashbacks from Spock's life illuminating why he is now on Romulus attempting to bring the teachings of the Vulcan philosopher Surak to the Romulans. Though the book is about Spock and his reflections and is a loose tie-in to the movie STAR TREK, the story brings together elements from various other Star Trek movies and wraps them up nicely.
The story unfolds at a slower pace than many other Star Trek stories, but that fits because the focus is on the character of Spock and not plot. There doesn't have to be great battles, large explosions, or massive firefights. Instead, the events unravel one at a time, at the end revealing a glimmer of what has made Spock who he is.
Like STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN, STAR TREK: SPOCK-REFLECTIONS contains some beautiful illustrations. The layouts done by David Messina, find a nice balance between a classical Star Trek style and the new sleek and flashy Star Trek look. It's a nice combination of old and new.
Star Trek fans will probably enjoy STAR TREK: SPOCK-REFLECTIONS as well as anyone who has an interest in Spock.
Occasionally, the art reflects some odd choices. The exterior of the U.S.S. Collins, set during "The Original Series", looks more like a Motion Picture-era ship. Additionally, Deep Space Station E-5 looks like Starbase 1 from the 2009 film. Though nice to see Spock teaching the Romulans following the events of "The Next Generation" storyline, "Unification," it does not foreshadow the mission that "Star Trek: Countdown" featured and that set up the 2009 film.
With that in mind, the story feels much more poignant following Leonard Nimoy's death because it reads like an "in memoriam" for both the actor and his portrayal of a beloved character.
A little nitpicking: The only things that took me out of the story were some odd, anachronistic choices made by the artist, particularly regarding some of the vessels we see in the comic. In a scene set very early in TOS, Season 1, the Enterprise comes to the rescue of a fellow Starfleet ship. On the interior, the damaged vessel's bridge matches the Enterprise's TV series-era bridge, as one would expect. Yet, strangely, the exterior of the vessel is that of a Miranda/Soyuz-class (identical to the TMP-era USS Bozeman encountered by the Enterprise-D) complete with TMP-refit-era warp nacelles and styling. And to be clear, this is not written as a vessel blasted back in time. The vessel, its captain and crew is recognized by the TOS crew as a ship contemporary to the setting--which is at odds with what we are seeing in the drawings.Read more ›
