Star Trek 1149: Shanghaied

1149. Shanghaied

PUBLICATION: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine #16, Malibu Comics, November 1994

CREATORS: John Vornholt (writer), Leonard Kirk, Jack Snider, and Richard Emond (artists)

STARDATE: Unknown (between The Maquis and The Wire)

PLOT: Jerakans stop by the station no their way to a two-year trip to the Gamma Quadrant and shanghai two Bajorans as crew. Odo is on the case, and since Quark made the introductions, he forces him to help by allowing the next Jerakan freighter to kidnap some security. Quark tries to warn the Jerakans, but he and Rom and kidnapped and made to work in the kitchens instead. But it's not Rom, it's Odo, and he and Quark successfully take over the ship, reach the first freighter, and intimidate it into coming back to DS9 to release its captives. Back on DS9, Quark's has become Rom's.

CONTINUITY: Morn and Rom both appear.

DIVERGENCES: Odo imitates Rom perfectly.

PANEL OF THE DAY - Dax clones the background extras.
REVIEW: John Vornholt is a pretty good Trek novelist and his abilities translate to a pretty good comic here, despite the comics books' annoying habit of giving Odo more powers than he has on the show. That aside, the story could have been a little longer, perhaps allowing for an on-station subplot. Good, fun art, especially when inked by Jack Snider in the first half. I like Kirk's alien designs.
