This Month: September 2012


This month is another busy one for Star Trek stuff, including five releases from IDW! Three of those are all new, including the unlucky thirteenth issue of the ongoing series, which is also the first one-shot from the series, The Redshirt's Tale. Also among those three is the first issue of the new Borg-centric Hive miniseries, which is only the seventh IDW Trek comic featuring the Enterprise-E! That same ship is also appearing in model form, with DST's latest re-issue being a newly repainted version of their Enterprise-E. Plus there's the English language release of Star Trek Catan, and The Eternal Tide, the latest in Kirsten Beyer's magnificent Voyager series.

What's the date for the Ent-E?

I'd go with, soonish. Forbidden Planet seem to think the 15th, Things From Another World have it down as the 29th of August, but are waiting for a new date as that has obviously passed... I wouldn't be surprised if it slipped into October or later, the toys seem to always be later than whatever date they suggest.

Have you read Eternal Tide yet? What did you think?

I have indeed, have been trying to make up my mind if I want to write a review, I don't think I could do so without spoiling the entire thing though. I enjoyed it, read it in a night. I wasn't happy with one particular development, not the big obvious one though, and was pleasantly surprised to find it full of Q, and a few other reappearances.

Yeah, I have to say I thought that it was pretty perfect. Dm me on Twitter and let me know what your issue was, I'd love to know.

Maybe write a review for a few months down the road.
