Star Trek 1030: Strangers in Strange Lands!

1030. Strangers in Strange Lands!

PUBLICATION: Star Trek: The Next Generation #26, DC Comics, December 1991

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

STARDATE: Unknown (follows the last issue)

PLOT: On Earth, Jeremy tells a story about two friends who would do anything for each other, but when he reveals the friends were Klingons, Alexander freaks out. Still, it brings him closer to his Klingon heritage, not knowing Jeremy gave it a happier ending than the original. Meanwhile, the away team and Okona are on a medieval planet without any equipment, and when they manage to construct a communicator from scrap, they're told they must get out of a shielded area if they want to be beamed up. Okona warns against the dangers of leaving the building, but they have no choice, and then are ambushed by archers and flaming arrows...

CONTINUITY: Same as last issue.


PANEL OF THE DAY - A matter of perspective
REVIEW: You know when I said Okona might not be annoying in comic book form? I was wrong. His insufferable flirting with Crusher, long expository (but not that useful) speeches, and the fact the likeness is way off really don't help. It could be ANY character in this role and it wouldn't change a thing. Nor is the plot advanced very much, what with half the issue given over to Jeremy Aster's version of Reading Rainbow. Talking heads and Klingon melodrama. I don't care to ever see Alexander cry and throw a tantrum ever again.

Interesting though to see the franchise continue in comics format, much as Buffy did after it went off-air.
