Star Trek 1400: Fool's Gold, Issue 3

1400. Fool's Gold, Issue 3

PUBLICATION: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Fool's Gold #3, IDW Comics, February 2010

CREATORS: Scott and David Tipton (writers), Fabio Mantovani (artist)

STARDATE: Unknown (follows the last issue)

PLOT: Turns out the rumor is that a rich Cardassian official hid what is now referred to as the "Bajoran stash" at the end of the Occupation and left clues to its coordinates on the station for his sons to find. However, the whole family was soon killed and the treasure never found. Now that the rumor is out, treasure hunters are turning out in droves. Quark has been milking it, but claims not to have started it. Sisko makes an announcement telling the station's visitors the rumor is bunk, but it only starts a violent riot. Sisko reacts by closing DS9 down for business and revoking docking permits. Garak's solution is to ask Sisko to let him find the treasure for him...

CONTINUITY: See previous issues (Rom, Morn). Garak appears. The rogues got their information from an Edosian (Arex's people, from the Animated Series).


PANEL OF THE DAY - Hard to slap away a three-hander.
REVIEW: With the arrival of Garak, we might just have a ball game. This is a good old-fashioned mystery, and it takes a real man of mystery to solve it. The bar brawl/riot action is just good fun, with flying Klingons interrupting Bashir and Garak's lunch, and of course, that's the only reason Garak even considers helping. The sometimes uneven art continues to be a boon to the series, which in large part is a retread of Deep Space Nine's tropes. Maybe it's meant to act as an introduction (or re-introduction) of the show to IDW's readership, with more innovative storylines coming later. It's a fair romp for now.
