Star Trek 966: No Compromise Part One

966. No Compromise Part One

PUBLICATION: Star Trek v.2 #58, DC Comics, March 1994

CREATORS: Howard Weinstein (writer), Carlos Garzon (artist)

STARDATE: 8651.1 (follows last issue) and 3001.3 (flashback to Chekov's first days on the Enterprise)

PLOT: Upon hearing that Academy sweetheart Julia Crandall has died, Chekov tells the story of how he proposed to her. Seeing as they'd be assigned to different ships, she refused, but soon after he was promoted to navigator, she was transferred to the Enterprise. At that time, the crew encountered a gigantic ship blasting radiation at a colony for months, but were unable to defeat it...

CONTINUITY: Captain Sulu and the Excelsior appear for the first time since their maiden mission in #39.

DIVERGENCES: Since it refers to the events of Time Crime, the stardate becomes suspect. It jumps too far to rejoin events prior to Time Crime's timeline, which was set around issue #13.

PANEL OF THE DAY - Chekov dates Big Ethel.
REVIEW: While it's an interesting peek at Chekov's early days and how he rose to his position and became friends with Uhura and Sulu, the story is severely hampered by the art. Garzon's faces are often ugly, pudgy, cross-eyed and buck-toothed with no consistency whatsoever from panel to panel, and his ship and base designs clunky in a way we haven't seen since the Gold Key days. And is there a draft aboard the Enterprise that Julia's hair is always wind-swept? Can't say much about the plot as we don't learn a whole lot about Julia Crandall or the threat in the first issue. Too bad the artist couldn't render the character moments very well.
