932. Veritas Part II: Sacrifices and Survivors

PUBLICATION: Star Trek v.2 #31, DC Comics, May 1992

CREATORS: Howard Weinstein (writer), Gordon Purcell and Arne Starr (artists)

STARDATE: 8588.7 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Sulu and Uhura are brought to Quatrin to testify to the massacre, and the security chief tries to use it to get his planet declared a police state, or else those damn Betans will destroy their society. Our heroes are put on a shuttle back to the Enterprise, along with an agent who tries to kill them. When the bad guy loses, he kills himself. Sulu and Uhura realize he's set the auto-destruct sequence and they barely escape in a pod. The only place to go is Beta...

CONTINUITY: None.

DIVERGENCES: None.

PANEL OF THE DAY - The Judge Judy of space
REVIEW: That's more like it! I guess it pays to get the exposition out of the way in the first chapter, even if it makes for a boring first issue. This second chapter has some nice, brutal action, humorous cutting between scenes, actual suspense, and even humor. Sulu and Uhura really shine, whereas the story turns to molasses every time we go back to the Enterprise. Weinstein really does write the secondary characters better.
