'Star Trek Volume 11' collects issues 46-49 of the ongoing comic book series. It's kind of a mashup of things instead of one cohesive story arc, but I still enjoyed it.
The crew of the reboot Enterprise is pulled out of warp on their way home. The crew has bouts of extreme emotions, to the point where McCoy sedates himself until a cure can be found. Things go from bad to worse until the crew meets up with an old enemy. In a second story, Sulu leads his first away mission to observe a native group and avoid breaking the Prime Directive. This turns out to be tougher than it should be as the natives are being exploited by another race that has superior technology. The final story was probably my favorite. The story features all the doctors from the various Star Trek Crews. There is Bashir and Crusher and Pulaski and Voyager's hologram Doctor. There are more, but they are happy surprises along the way.
The art style and writing varies. I liked the story with the doctors, but it was my least favorite of the art styles. I do like how a classic Trek enemy is brought forward to meet the reboot crew and I thought they did it quite well. The Prime Directive/Sulu story was ok, but was my least favorite of the three here.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Diamond Book Distributors, IDW Publishing, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
