Star Trek 1116: Encounter with... the Othersiders!

1116. Encounter with... the Othersiders!

PUBLICATION: Deep Space Nine/Star Trek: The Next Generation #2 (part 3), Malibu Comics/DC Comics, November 1994

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

STARDATE: 47270.9 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Riker and his crew beam over to the admiral's runabout just before their own is destroyed, but they are quickly captured by the aliens with a stasis beam. All but Odo, that is, who stages a break-out aboard the lead alien ship. Meanwhile, Picard and Sisko help in the relief efforts on Bajor, where the Wormhole's instability is causing massive flooding. Back in the Gamma Quadrant, the crew splits up to both destroy the stasis generator AND rescue the admiral's party. As they walk into his cell however, he is shot and killed by his captors...

CONTINUITY: See previous issues (Bareil).

DIVERGENCES: See previous issues. Odo mimics a humanoid face.

PANEL OF THE DAY - Riker gives a wooden performance.
REVIEW: They keep ramping up the action! Again, a strong showing from both crews, both in their various escapes and fights with the would-be invaders, and in their relief efforts over on Bajor. There's a nice scene between the O'Briens where Miles tells her he'll transfer back to the Enterprise if she wants, but she refuses to stand in the way of his happiness, but on the whole, there are fewer pure character moments. It all hinges on the finale now!
