    Look, I am giving it two stars because I'm that fan who prefers the stories where the main characters are more than simply Spock and Kirk. But it is great that Fontana did this.

    I feel like my reviews of these comics all end up being the same: me praising them. But that's exactly how I feel. I thoroughly enjoy the stories and love seeing more from the characters. I like how they expanded on ideas presented in the series, and many of those other plot points were put into play here. The action bits were enjoyable and the flashbacks helped fill in some gaps. There was a nice little theme of family going on that I enjoyed. Not sure what else I can say about these comics.

    This series started as a pitch from the famous original series writer, D. C. Fontana, who was responsible for some of the best episodes in the original series. These several stories, all connected to one another, pick up threads from previous original series episodes but try to develop them into a unaired fourth season. The story itself was okay but could have been more.

Frankly, I think the fan fiction YouTube series, Star Trek Continues, has done one of the best jobs of capturing the original tone and spirit of the series while genuinely advancing the storytelling. Also, the art in this series was by no means terrible but neither was it anything to write home about.

    Good, classic Trek penned by a veteran Star Trek luminary. The story serves as both the beginning of a neat follow-up to the original "Enterprise Incident" and a nifty prelude to what we'll see in TNG's "The Next Phase" and "Pegasus" and contains enough small references to other classic TOS episodes (and even a reference to "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan"!) to keep the hardcores happy.

    A full scale experiment with the captured Romulan cloaking device goes awry, endangering the 'Enterprise' when the Romulans track the signal and launch a mission to reclaim their technology. Fontana's story is in keeping with the spirit of 'Star Trek' and, understandably, her characterisation is spot on. The artwork is of a high standard and there is a good sense of dynamism. The bonus feature of the outline story is interesting to read as well.

    Story starts out great with the phasing problems, then loses steam when the Romulans and THEN the Klingons show up and everything becomes muddled. Flashbacks happen without warning, suddenly the captured Romulan is toasting the admiral and then there's a tripartite secret meeting on an isolated moon??? The mind is boggled.

    Truly reads like an ambitious series of Classic Trek 4th season episodes, with callbacks to past characters and plot points that wind and weave together for an even more connected universe. Solid artwork by Gordon Purcell hits the perfect spot of Trek Tech and actor likenesses. Simply put - one of the best Trek graphic novels ever published by creators who know and love the characters.

    I read the entire 5 issue story (which does not appear to be on Goodreads). This is a fun Star Trek adventure from D.C. Fontana with plenty of fan service and interesting ideas that serve as a sequel to two episodes of the original series. One nice bonus of the full 5 issue graphic novel is the inclusion of D.C. Fontana's outline/proposal for the story itself. A nice way to round out the year. I read the entire 5 issue story (which does not appear to be on Goodreads).

    New classic Star Trek stories by one of the original series writers. DC Fontana revisits some old friends while dropping hints about the future and delivering solid Star Trek fun. The art by Gordon Purcell is spot on.

    Expected much better writing from D.C. Fontana. The only reason it rised above one star was the medley of familiar characters which filled me with the nostalgia of her much better scripts on Star Trek: TOS.

    I liked the substantial roles for Kor and the Romulan Commander, but I'm confused about what actually happened in the political machinations... and it seems incredibly racist for them to just dress Sulu up like a Klingon as if he can pass for one with no effort?

    Star Trek - Year Four... what might have been. This is a fun little read. The author decided to include one of the characters from the animated series as well as the regulars. I’ll need to continue withe rest of the series.

    Cool story tying together the aftermath of several TOS episodes. Didn't get the clandestine meetings with Starfleet brass though, and from other reviews, I'm not the only one.

    Far to similar to multiple episodes of subsequent ST series and a half dozen other sci-fi shows to be truly enjoyable.

    I felt this had the opposite problem of the previous Year Four book in that it had too much dialogue and was too slowly paced for me to really get engaged in the story.

    DC Fontana was an incredible TV writer but this just shows that writing comics is a different art form.

    A definite step up from the 'Star Trek' Year Four graphic novel. The Enterprise runs into both the Romulans and the Klingons, and I feel this connected really well with multiple conitnuities, whether that be TAS, TOS episodes, or the TOS novels.

The character moments that stand out to me is when the crew members think about their families back home and their family on the Enterprise.

Some touching and bittersweet moments throughout. This volume also has an example of a five-book proposal within the last few pages.

    D.C. Fontana earned most her fame working on ST TOS. Here she brings her knowledge of the characters and the various competing interstellar empires to a well crafted tale. She realistically deals with the whole Organian problem (maybe not a great solution, but a good one). I've read 4 of the TPBs put out by IDW, and three of them have been good to surprisingly good. There may be some fan service, but the characters have been dealt with well, and stories have been average science fiction/space ope D.C. Fontana earned most her fame working on ST TOS.

    Mikael Kuoppala

    Star Trek and overall sci-fi television master Dorothy Fontana herself is behind an epic story that attempts to bridge the gap between the political situation seen in the original series and the movies ten years later. The task is enormous, but Fontana does indeed manage to achieve the near impossible and deliver a coherent and smart political saga that doesn’t fail to deliver on the plot or character level.

    There's a big rush to tie a lot of the ancient races together at the end but for the most part this works (in no small part to DC Fontana). Although I couldn't help but think of the Ancient Head Grabber from SG1. Seeding stuff for the future while also giving the main three a couple of good flashback and reflection pages.

    Classic Trek to the Max A great story by Matron Fontana and crew. Classic Trek fans will love the episode feel--the callbacks and plot, the character idiosyncrasies. Kudos to the artist for capturing everything from proper uniform design and color to the tiniest details. First class Classic Trek!

    This book is a treat for those who love Star Trek. It is an original story written by the legendary DC Fontana. The artwork compliments the story. All I can say is flawless! Definitely a must read and must have for Star Trek fans.
