964. Time Crime Part Four: Call Back Yesterday

PUBLICATION: Star Trek v.2 #56, DC Comics, January 1994

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

STARDATE: 8526.8 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Spock identifies a new turning point in Klingon history that could account for its becoming peaceful, so Kirk and crew go back in time to save a Klingon warlord from dying in a plane crash. Kirk and Sulu show off their skills as airplane mechanics and are enlisted by the warlord, which gives them the chance to subdue a saboteur. When they try to bring him to the castle, they are thrown in jail until their story can be verified, leaving the field open for other saboteurs to complete the job...

CONTINUITY: See previous issues of this storyline.

DIVERGENCES: See previous issues of this storyline.

PANEL OF THE DAY - A Klingon barn
REVIEW: I'm not sure I quite understand the convoluted turning point Spock comes up with (a guy who had lots of Imperially-minded kids is never born because something and that something has to do with the dead warlord), and the appearance of Klingon time agents who may or may not be working for the same goal as the heroes doesn't get as much space as I would have liked. Kor and Worf are no longer needed to do "most of the talking" and most characters disappear while Kirk and Sulu do their thing alone. So this is definitely Time Crime's weakest chapter. Hopefully. I wouldn't want it to be its conclusion.
