Star Trek 1022: The Flight of the Albert Einstein

1022. The Flight of the Albert Einstein

PUBLICATION: Star Trek: The Next Generation #20, DC Comics, June 1991

CREATORS: Michael Jan Friedman (writer), Peter Krause and Pablo Marcos (artists)

STARDATE: 44212.9 (between Future Imperfect and Final Mission)

PLOT: The Enterprise-D races to help twin colonies infected by a plague and is forced to send a shuttle to the smaller of the two. Riker, Worf, Wesley, Selar and medical staff board the Einstein on that mission. Unfortunately, they hit a wormhole, are whisked off to God knows where, with most systems down and Riker critically injured...

CONTINUITY: None.

DIVERGENCES: None.

PANEL OF THE DAY - Too much information!
REVIEW: A take on the Galileo Seven, with most of the page count used to introduce us to new characters and/or creating a dynamic between them and the regulars. It's the kind of thing Friedman is good at, with relationships drawn in shorthand and a balance of levity and drama. Back on the Enterprise, that drama comes dangerously close to melodrama, but then, they never could endanger Wesley without it going that way for Beverly. Regardless, spending time developing a "guest crew" has a good a chance of paying off since issue 20 actually begins the 5-part "Star Lost" story. We'll be with them for a while.
