This graphic novel is the first of a series of comics meant to hold you over between films.
You have the same characters from the J.J. Abrams Star Trek film mixing with the story from the pilot of the Original Series.
Captain Kirk has brought two of his friends from the academy. As they are ordered into the brink of the galaxy, they discover a beacon which has a warning.
As per the pilot, once they cross the barrier of the galaxy, one of Kirk's friends, Gary Mitchell gets the weird silver eyes and begins to manifest certain god-like qualities.
This is where volume one leaves us and we await the continuing saga. All the while, fans will be racking their brains over where this will leave us for the next movie.
The artwork is pristine and it feels right at home with the IDW comic family.
This graphic novel was provided for review, at no cost, by IDW publishing.
