Star Trek: The Q Gambit graphic novel

I have been a mild fan of the new Star Trek graphic novels. I've enjoyed how they surround the new films and add a layer to the mystery.

This volume continue to quality of the previous novels however I wasn't a big fan of the story.

Q is back. This time he's with the re-imagined crew but he's up to his typical shenanigans.
The story begins with Q visiting an aging Picard (who has a new career) which I thought was a pointless plug.

Then Q sends the new crew to the Deep Space Nine world. I understand the nastalgia of what these writers do. I remember reading the beginning and ending of the Star Trek Countdown and liked how they enclosed it with the Next Generation crew.

But this one didn't work as well for me. I'd say it's because I wasn't a big fan of the Deep Space Nine show. But those fans will get a kick out of this story.

The artwork was great and the pacing is top notch. I think I'm just ready to read more stories of the new crew on their own; without having to rely on previous point of references.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by IDW Publishing.
