Star Trek 963: Time Crime Part Three: Time... to Time!

963. Time Crime Part Three: Time... to Time!

PUBLICATION: Star Trek v.2 #55, DC Comics, December 1993

CREATORS: Howard Weinstein (writer), Rob Davis and Arne Starr (artists)

STARDATE: 8520.9 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Kirk, Uhura, McCoy, Suku, Kor and Worf Sr. go back 700 years into Klingon history to make sure peacemaker Khartan is assassinated by his head guard. When the assassins are killed by a modern Klingon explosive, Worf takes matters into his own hands and snipes Khartan from a rooftop. The heroes return to the present only to be told by the Guardian that the timeline has not been restored and the Romulan Empire still doesn't exist...

CONTINUITY: See previous issues of this storyline. Before leaving, the crew spends some time on the aircraft carrier Enterprise (ST IV), now a naval museum.

DIVERGENCES: None aside from augment virus issues.

PANEL OF THE DAY - A Klingon horse
REVIEW: Continues to be a strong storyline! We meet Khartan, who is the Leonardo da Vinci of his world in addition to being a peacemaker, making it all the more cruel that his true place in history should be to die (the Guardian has a thing for that sort of historical character, it seems). And once he is dead, it seems like Worf made the ultimate sacrifice (the culture he has known) for nothing. Weinstein doesn't forget to give Kirk and David a proper farewell, and the good captain has a heroic moment when he defends Uhura from brutal guards. As for the Romulans, they're definitely not as guiltless as they appear to be. No doubt, they tried to change history with terrible results (it's Year of Hell before there was even a Voyager). A couple of chapters still left, but it looks like Weinstein finally wrote one I like.

Is this the storyline with the wacky Klingon bi-planes?
