Star Trek 1040: Devil's Brew!

1040. Devil's Brew!

PUBLICATION: Star Trek: The Next Generation #34, DC Comics, July 1992

CREATORS: Michael Jan Friedman (writer), Kenneth Penders and Pablo Marcos (artists)

STARDATE: Unknown (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Q has transformed the crew of the Enterprise into Klingons and ruckus ensues, with only Worf being able to keep his emotions in check. There are attempts on Picard's life and the Ysalanti prepare for battle...

CONTINUITY: Q.

DIVERGENCES: I guess "Picard never hit me" didn't include Klingon Picard.

PANEL OF THE DAY - To wit:
REVIEW: The story doesn't move much from the last issue, but the exploration of what it means to be newly-minted Klingons remains interesting. A nice, but not pressed point is that Q didn't change Guinan. He's still afraid of her. Penders' art features oddly shaped, disjointed panels, almost like he's been turned into a Klingon as well. I get what he's doing, but the results are middling. They're certainly not helped by the over-saturated brown skin tones that drown the images, and all the highlights are a garish white that is as ugly as it is unnaturalistic.
