Star Trek 900: Fast Friends

900. Fast Friends

PUBLICATION: Star Trek v.2 #5, DC Comics, February 1990

CREATORS: Peter David (writer), James W. Fry and Arne Starr (artists)

STARDATE: 8485.3 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: As Kirk alternates between trying to impress his new protocol officer and ducking from her, she tries to interview the rest of the crew. Meanwhile, in some corners of Starfleet Command, they're talking about handing Kirk over to the Klingons and the Nasgul to avoid war. Later, the Enterprise reaches planet New Brinden where a deadly leprosy-like disease has spread through the lower caste. The elite caste are afraid enough to exterminate the infected population unless McCoy can administer a cure. While things look promising, the planet's prefect calls in to say that the people the cure was administered to have started dying, so a massacre may be in order...

CONTINUITY: The Federation President.

DIVERGENCES: None.

PANEL OF THE DAY - Spock likes it in public
REVIEW: I think we need a big, fat, epic storyline, and soon. This is fine, with each subplot being advanced and lots of cute and funny moments, but medical relief missions lack that certain oomph, you know? I'm also impatient to see what protocol officer R.J. Blaise will be all about, though I did love Kirk's personal log thanking God that she turned out to be a woman.

Uh, Spock. Sit this one out. I'll handle her.
