For those new to this Star Trek collection, the issues collected start after the conclusion of Star Trek III: The Search For Spock (which came out around 1984). I distinctly remember picking up Star Trek comics about an issue or two before the Mirror Universe Saga began. In fact, I still have some of my originals around (in slightly tattered condition I might add!).

Even at the young age that I was (which was between 10 to 12), I remember being engrossed by this mirror universe saga. The of the USS Excelsior was genius considering the original crew had no ship after the destruction of the Enterprise during Star Trek III. The use of the Mirror Universe characters was spot on though there are a lot of surprises sprinkled throughout. It was because some of my old issues were a little beat up that I decided to get this collection. It's well worth the re-read and shows you how good the original Star Trek was. It's so good that the new 2009 / 2013 movies are hard pressed to try and build on the original series. Instead, they have tried to take the movies in a different direction.

Even if you're new to Trek because of the new movies, this set is worth taking a look at. It'll open your mind to the original Star Trek and see why it's lasted so many years.

I have been watching "Star Trek" in it's various incarnations since the original way back in 1966. The alternate universe with all the "evil" counterparts of Spock, Kirk and crew was my favorite concept. This expands on the story line and does a pretty good job. Should keep any "Trekkie" or "Trekker" entertained for a hour or two.

this is easily the best star trek comic i have ever read and possibly one of my favorite comics ever

Kirk's portrayal is a bit overdone. The artwork is average and not accurate.

My main gripe is the technology published is not canon and very confusing to someone who has watched even a season of TOS.

I believe the writer took too many liberties with the work that nullified my interest and made me regret the purchase.

"Star Trek III: The Search for Spock," was released in the summer of 1984. The sequel, "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home," was released in the fall of 1986. In the interval between the two movies, DC Comics published an eight part comic title "The Mirror Universe Saga." This eight-part story is a different version of what happened as described in Star Trek IV, and thus falls into the category of what could have been or what may have happened in an alternate universe.

In this version, Spock remains on Vulcan while Kirk and his companions head back to the Federation to face their superiors for the deeds committed in Star Trek III. As seems to happen often in the Star Trek universe, fate intervenes and Kirk faces his nemesis from the mirror universe, along with other characters from the original television episode. Kirk's mirror universe self is, as in the television episode, still trying to gain status in the mirror universe. His plan this time is to lead an invasion fleet into Kirk's universe with the goal of gaining significant power and authority in both universes.

The story becomes increasingly complex as it proceeds. Even though Spock begins the story on Vulcan, mirror universe Kirk needs Spock's knowledge of the Genesis device to accomplish his grand scheme. Thus, Spock eventually rejoins his companions and eventually plays a critical role in the story. There are surprises along the way and a suggestion that the mirror universe story line remains far from a conclusion and as we know from subsequent events, the mirror universe has appeared in a series of novels.

I thought the plot was generally fast-paced and realistic. I did have a difficult time figuring out which character was which a couple of times and had to re-read portions of the graphic novel. Part of the problem is that the story relied a lot on mistaken identities so you have to take hints from what came before and after and what the character says. Even then, there were one or two challenges.

The story is reasonably consistent with the original television story and with the characters at the time, which makes this story quite enjoyable. While Star Trek has come a long way since 1966, I must admit that the original cast and stories have a certain character that I enjoy. The features of the original series are in evidence throughout this story.

Comics and graphic novels have also changed much over the years. The style of the illustrations readily places this graphic novel in the late 1970's and early 1980's, which remains, to me, fun to read.

I am often annoyed when someone takes a known universe and skews a story line in a direction completely different from where the universe eventually went. In this case, the authors were unaware of the existence of Star Trek IV and they created a bold and interesting story that could readily have been a sequel to Star Trek III. I strongly recommend this story to fans of the original series and particularly to those who enjoyed the original episode featuring the mirror universe.

Enjoy!
