Star Trek 840: Dreamworld

840. Dreamworld

PUBLICATION: Star Trek #21, DC Comics, December 1985

CREATORS: Bob Rozakis (writer), Tom Sutton and Ricardo Villagran (artists)

STARDATE: 8293.6 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Spock and the USS Sarek come upon the unexplored planet Proto. When Spock beams down with a couple of his
crew beam down, he experiences fantastic dream-like events. He awakens himself a couple times, but remains in the dream until he finally uses logic to convince himself it's not real. He awakens for real aboard the Surak, beamed up sleeping from the planet. He must use a mindmeld to get his crew - the bird-like Dr. Chu-Sa and the prejudiced Commander Brinks - out of their dreams. Fighting off a monstrous version of himself in Brinks' dream, he has a stern talk with her about her behavior.


DIVERGENCES: Despite being sent to study the Genesis Wave aftermath, Spock and the Surak are investigating unexplored space.

PANEL OF THE DAY - Spock has Bugs Bunny in his subconscious.
REVIEW: A colossal waste of time. While we do meet a few members of Surak's crew, spending the entire book in a surreal dreamscape just doesn't do anything for me. We don't find out how the planet ticks. The prejudice against Vulcans story has been done to death (even at the time). And Bob Rozakis doesn't respect continuity from only a few issues ago. How about the Surak has a real adventure that can adequately lead into ST IV?
