Star Trek 1207: Risk, Part One

1207. Risk, Part One

PUBLICATION: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine #6, Marvel Comics, April 1997

CREATORS: Howard Weinstein (writer), Tom Grindberg and Al Milgrom (artists)

STARDATE: 49924.6 (between Body Parts and Broken Link)

PLOT: The Defiant is exploring when it finds a space-time anomaly. Investigating, the anomaly is disrupted and the Defiant is soon captured by Shirn ships accusing Sisko of having killed the test pilot who entered their artificial space-time conduit. The science council judging him seem to have already made up their mind, but a (sigh) dissident group sees this as an opportunity to put a stop to the wasteful project. O'Brien theorizes that the conduit has not collapsed but is out of phase, and the pilot may still be alive. Rejected by the Shirn as a possibility, O'Brien sets out to prove it by piloting a drone into the anomaly himself, even as Sisko is sentenced to death...


DIVERGENCES: What is the Defiant doing exploring the Alpha Quadrant, far from the Bajoran sector?

PANEL OF THE DAY - Phaser, remote control, it's all the same.
REVIEW: Weinstein's back and he thinks he's writing a TNG story. Changing the word Alpha to Gamma would have been a simple fix here, by the way. In any case, it was still interesting when suddenly, my heart sank at the mention of a dissident movement. Fine, the writer has a favorite trope, I get that. BUT EVERY SINGLE TIME? It's irritating. The art's growing on me, especially the outer space stuff, but I can't recommend the writing.
