    Q is used as an excuse to take the crews of the first 4 Star Trek TV shows and mix them up into picked teams for some contrived contest. This is an OK series with way too many characters. No one gets much of a chance to shine when your juggling 20+ crew members plus another dozen or so guest stars from specific episodes. It all adds up to nothing more than fan service.

    I kind of think this is the first time I ever read a Star Trek comic? Unless Star Trek vs. Transformers counts, which I'm pretty sure it doesn't. In any case it was a fun read, plenty of zany hijinks with Q involved and a chance for some known characters from various crews and eras to interact (sorry Enterprise). Still, the decision to have the Captain's have a mixed bag crew from other shows wasn't really capitalized upon. I guess all it gave us was the opportunity to see Picard ordering Spock, S I kind of think this is the first time I ever read a Star Trek comic?

It must have driven the art team nuts keeping the uniforms consistent to their respective TV show and time period details! Anyhow, I had fun. I mean, they even brought Corbin Bernsen back. THAT's a deep cut! PS No matter how enlightened Trek claims to be they always find a way to frame characters like Seven, Troi or Uhura to best showcase their "assets", eh?

    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.

    Star Trek does their take on Marvel's Contest of Champions or Secret Wars with crews from four different TV series -- TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY -- pitted against each other as game pieces in a dispute among four of of the universe's omnipotent species: Q Continuum, Metrons, Organians, and whoever claims Trelane, the bratty Squire of Gothos. It's a good time for Trekkies like me. Slight drawbacks: The focus is on Picard, which is okay until you consider that Kirk is standing RIGHT THERE!

Also, the crews are sorted into teams that mix members from the various ships, so we don't get a true head-to-head competition of Enterprise NCC-1701 vs. Enterprise NCC-1701-E vs. Defiant vs. Voyager, though the cross-ship interaction mostly makes up for that. And I feel sorry for anyone who is not familiar with all four series, because little time is devoted to introducing any of the characters or their backstories.

    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.

    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 spec 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.

    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 know that it can be stylised, and for all I know there may licensing issues over certain images and people. 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.

    This was a cute little special event comic which I got from Hoopla as part of their bonus borrowing program. As a Star Trek fan this was fun as a little read over the weekend. It functions like a greatest hits collection, bringing all the crews together to stop Q’s latest scheme. It was fun and I liked seeing familiar characters. The actual story though is quite thin and doesn’t really emotionally connect.

    This is one of those books that is just an excuse to put characters together that wouldn't normally get to interact (in this case, all the main crews of every Trek series before Enterprise). Some of the characters got to do just about zippo (like Deanna Troi), but there were a few interesting moments. The art was... okay. The characters' faces were dead-on about half the time and the rest of the time they were just okay. I did love the art style used for the covers.

    I think I got spoiled by Star Wars comic books. This is...not good. It does, however, feature crewmembers from four Star Wars franchises playing Capture the Flag against each other at Q's behest, so...there's that.

Having read a huge crossover of sorts in the form of Star Trek: Boldly Go Vol. 3 at the beginning of this week, I was surprised to get another one in The Q Conflict. We begin with the TNG crew in 2379, before the events of Nemesis. In a fashion reminiscent of Doctor Who: The Five Doctors, other crews are taken out of their time periods. The Voyager crew is taken from 2377, during Voyager season 6.

The Voyager crew is taken from 2377, during Voyager season 6. The DS9 crew is taken out of 2371, shortly after Sisko's promotion to captain in the season 3 finale. (Looks like he shaved his head right after that episode.) The Original Series Crew is taken out of 2269, the year of TOS season 3. And yes, we are missing the crews of Enterprise and Discovery. For the latter, I would've assumed that it could be due to the writers wanting to wait and see how the show continues to define its characters. For the former, I hear that it's due to Scott Bakula not wanting his likeness shown, though I do recall him appearing in Waypoint. In any case, maybe these four crews were enough, as there's not enough time to put everyone in the spotlight. I'm surprised that none of the Voyager crew asks Picard's crew whether or not they make it to Earth. Some characters are pushed to the background and don't really do anything notable. When Guinan mentioned that Picard may have more allies than he thinks, I kind of expected that the crews of Enterprise, Discovery, or even the Kelvin timeline might show up at the end. Instead, we got Wesley Crusher, The Traveler, and Amanda Rogers. I admit, it was nice seeing them again. I was actually surprised that this story resulted in Wesley agreeing to be a normal human again. (Maybe that explains his presence at the wedding in Nemesis?) To cover all bases, it's mentioned that some characters chose to have their memories of these events wiped, while others chose to remember. Since Generations seems like the first time Kirk met Picard, I think it's safe to say that Kirk had his memories erased. And since Sisko later tries to meet Kirk for the first time in "Trials and Tribble-ations," it's safe to say that he got his memories wiped as well. Same goes for Jadxia Dax since she seems surprised by how handsome Spock looks in that episode. As fun as this story was, there was a lot to juggle, and perhaps it could have been done better. In fact, I'd even go as far as to say that this story should have been a novel instead. That would have been a feasible way of getting around the Bakula-likeness problem. Plus, there would have been less worry about how the art is executed. I think there were too many white spaces in this. I prefer having fully illustrated panels. A fun story, but I found Boldly Go Vol. 3 to be more poignant with what it was given.

In a 'fwash', the crews of the Enterprise D, Deep Space 9, Voyager and the original Enterprise are sorted into teams and must act as champions for the 3 combatants with the safety of all known time and space at risk! This was a book that I had to pick up new! I could not wait for a used copy to go on sale! I really wanted to read this book. I know I could have read it earlier in individual issues. But the scale of this book was so massive, I knew that to read over a span of 2-3 months as individual issues would have resulted in something being lost over that time period. I was right! There's so many cameos and Easter Eggs in this book. Reading this as a collected edition, I am pretty sure I caught all of them. Though there was at least one egg that I didn't quite understand. At the end of issue/chapter one, there's a ghostly image of some man in the distance. I've tried but I can't figure out who that is. I hope it's not Gene Roddenberry. Not that he doesn't deserve the respect but to pay homage to him in the story instead of an afterward on the last page of the book, would be a massive disruption of the fourth wall. As for the book, I loved it. And I wanted more. Not only that, I know that there's going to be more. If you think IDW is going to stop at Q Conflict, you are completely fooling yourself. The publisher is going to milk this cash cow- and I'm okay with it! I want to see everyone in the sequel. The crew of Discovery. Captain Archer and his crew. Chris Pike and Number One. The older versions of Kirk and Spock. Saavik. David. And the Kelvin Enterprise Crew. Come on, IDW! Let's make Q Conflict II the Crisis of the Star Trek universe! It will be the ultimate crossover and a guaranteed moneymaker! And I WILL BUY IT!

But worst of all because there are like 50 main characters from all the Trek shows, none of them get any good story time to do anything or be useful. Seriously, a bunch of cool stuff happens but between issues or pages. All the good on page stuff goes to Picard. It is all a mishmash of gobbledygook with the story all wrapped up in a quick fwooosh. I this all could have been better and I'm tired of bad Trek being made because they know the fans will devour any garbage they are given.

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.

    An entertaining crossover between the three Next Generation-era crews and the Original Series crew. The story's also filled with many fun references to the history of the franchise. Unfortunately, the story doesn't feel like it lives up to its potential, and also misses the opportunity for deeper character interactions. And the ending is merely functional. But it's still a worthwhile read for long-time Trek fans. (B)

    I enjoyed the story and the art for what it was. It was interesting to see the characters interact in the way they did. That being said, it was a bit simple for my tastes, and there were some characters that only got a few panels of dialogue when their backgrounds should have given them more to work with. Definitely a fun read, but I am glad I only checked it out from my library and didn't buy it like I was originally thinking of doing!

    Rushed plot points and some wobbly art made this a miss for me. The Trouble popper generated some interesting combinations of Trek teams, but none were able to be properly explored. I wanted more of the interactions between Kirk and Worf, Spock and Picard, Janeway and Riker.....long list. Too many irons in the fire.

    It was a fun story which hearkened back to old "Trek" envisioned by Gene Roddenberry where man squares off against godlike beings and emerges victorious. That being said, it was so grand in scope by pulling from the first four "Star Trek" series that it practically bites off more than it can chew. Most "Star Trek" fans will just ignore this though, and enjoy it for what it is.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. this is really a story about Q. the captains and their crews are supporting characters. the art was mediocre. as a graphic novel crossover it was well executed. this is something that could never happen as a movie or tv show so it was great to see this story told through this medium. wesley though? well, we get to see more of the traveler so...

    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.

    I had a lot of fun with this one. I wish that it had been about twice as long, to give more room for more character development. There were so many characters from the four crews there that most of them got short shrift. A longer telling of the tale would have been preferable.

    A seemingly good idea wasted. Mixing up the four crews in a contest/game set up by Q could have been interesting, but it was was too much for a graphic novel/limited series. Most of the characters were wasted in the easily handled challenges. The art was solid, but the story just did nothing.
