916. Partners? The Startling Conclusion!

PUBLICATION: Star Trek v.2 #18, DC Comics, April 1991

CREATORS: Howard Weinstein (writer), Ken Hooper and Bob Dvorak (artists)

STARDATE: Unknown (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Having discovered the mining company's mole, and fearing the Klingons will simply attack the Tyrion Legion, dragging all parties into a war, Kirk sends his own people on an intelligence mission. Scotty discovers the Tyrion ships aren't all they're cracked up to be, and Uhura manages to leave a little something in their computers. When the Tyrions do attack, Uhura's Trojan horse disables their fleet, prompting the Klingons to try to destroy them. The Enterprise positions itself between the Klingons and Tyrions and attempts a peaceful solution. After the Tyrions have had an "abrupt change of leadership", a trade agreement is hammered out.

CONTINUITY: None.

DIVERGENCES: See the last issue.

PANEL OF THE DAY - When artists model anatomy from action figures
REVIEW: While the artwork is still pretty shoddy, the script is much better! Weinstein restores some of the humor without going overboard, which Peter David sometimes did, and he gives some of the secondary players things to do. I love me some competent Scotty-Uhura-Sulu action! There IS a problem with the script though, because I think it's trying to prefigure the upcoming ST VI. Like Weinstein was told the Klingon Wall would finally fall, except he misjudges how Nick Meyer is going to make Kirk react. So in this comic, Kirk's a peacemaker who looks forward to the day. Not exactly where he is at the start of the 6th film!
