    Read as single issues #1-#6. This was an entertaining yarn involving Q and 3 other godlike beings (all from TOS, funny that): Trelain, the Metrons, and the Organians. They bring in our four first Trek crews to fight a proxy war via a series of challenges. The twist is the god-beings choose players to work with each captain like it is a high school dodgeball game. This creates a few interesting pairings, like Worf on Kirk's bridge, and Riker working alongside Janeway. The story wasn't anything Read as single issues #1-#6.

This creates a few interesting pairings, like Worf on Kirk's bridge, and Riker working alongside Janeway. The story wasn't anything special beyond the conceit - I think they could have done more with their efforts to fight back against Q, and we had some nice character moments but not as many as I wanted given the crew line-ups - half the time it was just window dressing and not relevant to the story or outcome. The artwork is serviceable but some characters, such as Q, looked a little "off". Also there were a few panels with rank insignia gaffs, which bothered me but just made me feel like I caught the wardrobe department off their A game in a final cut of an episode. Worth picking up if you want more Star Trek comics, but you might just want to save your money for the upcoming Voyager mirror universe series, if Tipton and Tipton's TNG mirror universe run is any indication.

    Enjoyable stuff for any Trekker. Q is a pretty straightforward device to use in terms of bringing four prominent captains together for a few mini-adventures: Kirk, Picard, Sisko and Janeway. The art also manages good likenesses of the characters, neatly avoiding another potential downfall for a graphic novel like this. Where this 6-issue series stumbles is that there wasn't much time allowed for a few meaningful conversations between characters we don't normally see together.

Where this 6-issue series stumbles is that there wasn't much time allowed for a few meaningful conversations between characters we don't normally see together. Do Spock and Tuvok get a moment? Or Picard and Seven, given that Picard was captured by the Borg? Well, no. There's a brief moment between Kirk and Worf that works quite well, and another (even briefer) moment with Riker and Kim. Picard simply saying "My God," when Kirk and company arrive on the scene is perfect. It's a fun series, but I really wanted more of that. One of the best things about the TNG episode Unification was the brief "I have no regrets" conversation between Spock and Data. There was a lot to juggle here, and if there's a next time, it might work better to simply assemble a mixed crew of some of the best-loved characters.

    I will admit that this was read off the back of the pocket book Q trilogy I read earlier - on googling the series (as it was published some years ago) I found reference to a new graphic novel coming out off the back of a comic book run earlier in the year. Well as you can imagine I had to give it a go. I will admit it was a bit varied - you see the story has all the typical aspects of a Q story including the arguments with Pickard - however the one thing I struggled with was the artwork - now I I will admit that this was read off the back of the pocket book Q trilogy I read earlier - on googling the series (as it was published some years ago) I found reference to a new graphic novel coming out off the back of a comic book run earlier in the year.

However some characters were instantly recognisable - especially considering the extra special circumstances of how the various characters got there but there are were some I really struggled with (and I think the artists knew this and more often than not they would find ways of having the introduced just in case you were not sure). The story however is (and yes I am no Star Trek expert) classic Q and really captured the tone and dialogue of the characters which meant at the end of the story there was no doubt of what you had just read. I am not sure if this is a one off or the potential door opening to more stories - which I for one would happily read now i have had a chance to settle in to the books style. I suspect this is a book which polarise fans - you will either love it or hate it, I guess I am the latter but it took a little time.

    Like with most Star Trek miniseries from IDW, The Q Conflict presents readers with a fantastic idea that doesn't get enough room to breathe or fulfill itself. Six issues is not nearly enough to tell the story of a war between the most familiar godlike creatures in the Star Trek universe fought via the proxy of its first four crews. There are too many characters, too many scenarios, too many promises made before it all ends rather abruptly in the sixth and final issue.

There are too many characters, too many scenarios, too many promises made before it all ends rather abruptly in the sixth and final issue. Considering this was clearly always meant to be a miniseries, they probably could have done a better job of crafting a story that works better over such a short run. Instead it's a story that throws way too much at the wall, and while a good chunk of it sticks, it's not enough.

    Have you ever imagined what would happen if the advanced races in the Star Trek universe had a disagreement? Picard and the crew of the Enterprise find out and when Picard steps into try and mediate a solution that is where things get interesting. Four captains and their senior officers are pulled from different times to "help" out with the issue. The four captains Kirk, Picard, Sisko and Janeway are each picked to represent one of the advanced races. Next issue we get to see how they feel about Have you ever imagined what would happen if the advanced races in the Star Trek universe had a disagreement?

The four captains Kirk, Picard, Sisko and Janeway are each picked to represent one of the advanced races. Next issue we get to see how they feel about this and watch out how each of the remaining crews are divided up on the teams. I am looking forward to that seeing these separate crews have to work with some unfamiliar people. I love crossovers and stories like this even if once they are returned to their timelines don't remember. I find them enjoyable wondering what a conversation between Bashir and McCoy would be like or Spock and Tuvok. If you are a Trek fan I highly recommend this series of comics.

    A fun crossover that mixes up the crews from the first four Star Trek series. There's not much in the way of character development except for the Captains, so it's mostly about the novelty of seeing all these characters at the same time. I liked the idea of having all the crews mixed up and competing against each other but it would have been nice if there was more time given to them getting used to each other, but this was very much more an action focused story.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Excellent art, good premise (at least it worked for Contest of Champions) and quite unsatisfying overall. Spoilers: Traveler Wesley and Q Amanda quickly & conveniently give up their powers to stop a brief & unmotivated cosmic war. I feel their unique open-ended stories are not worth throwing away like this.

    This was a good idea, Q getting all these people and crews together with various other things or people from Star Trek making appearances, but either it just kind of ended or was too much for the format or something. But it was generally okay.
