Star Trek 1208: Risk, the Conclusion

1208. Risk, the Conclusion

PUBLICATION: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine #7, Marvel Comics, May 1997

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

STARDATE: 49354.9 (follows the last issue)

PLOT: O'Brien enters and leaves the anomaly, confirming his theory but not finding the lost pilot. The Shirn refuse to even look at his evidence. The dissident among them helps the crew uncover evidence of negligence, explaining the need for Sisko to be their scapegoat, but since no ship can use the information gathered to find the pilot, it is a moot point. O'Brien thinks the Defiant can make it, and so it does, but the dissident tries to sabotage operations while inside the anomaly, thinking a disaster would help stop the experiments once and for all. Dax overpowers him and the ship rescues the pilot and exists the anomaly. Sisko is freed and hopes the message of science gone mad has been heard.



PANEL OF THE DAY - Have Dax's hands always freaked me out?
REVIEW: Despite Weinstein's little obsessions, this is a better issue than Part I. It has some wit and humor (in particular, Dax quoting Curzon at the end), as well as some action and one surprising reversal. Or perhaps it only seems that way, given that the rest is so predictable. As you can see from the featured panel, the art is still iffy in places.

Yes, that one!

And I'm sorry I couldn't be more of a booster for these issues. I like being a booster, I really do. After 1200+ Star Trek stories, there's just a lot to compare them to, I suppose.

Would love to read some behind the scenes stories as they come to you, however!
