Star Trek 1114: The Wormhole Trap

1113. The Wormhole Trap

PUBLICATION: Deep Space Nine/Star Trek: The Next Generation #1 (part 2), Malibu Comics/DC Comics, October 1994

CREATORS: Mike W. Barr and Michael Jan Friedman (writers), Gordon Purcell and Terry Pallot (artists)

STARDATE: 47269.1 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: The Cardassian saboteurs beam out before being captured and the combined crews use the tech left behind to modify a runabout so it can enter the raging Wormhole. Bashir and Crusher determine that they weren't Cardassians thanks to a blood sample, but Riker and his combined team go in anyway. The Wormhole disables the runabout and on the other side is a fleet of alien ships, waiting...

CONTINUITY: See previous issues (Bareil, Lwaxana). Gul Dukat puts in an appearance. Alexander runs around with Jake and Nog.

DIVERGENCES: See previous issues (empaths). Alexander's appearance causes problems with Sons and Daughters.

PANEL OF THE DAY - Odo without budgetary limits.
REVIEW: I guess Ro isn't really in this after all, just background (as is Keiko and the kids in this one). No problem, I just like the character is all. There is no sense of discontinuity even if Part 2 is published by Malibu, except for the cover art, and Purcell's big, bold panels tell an exciting story. We have a fight, a huge fleet, dramatic lightning coming out of the Wormhole... And still time for character moments as the two best crews of the modern era interact.
