Time travel is a constant theme in the Star Trek canon – this book is the first we’ve seen that specifically deal with the Federation’s temporal agency.

Overall the book is a decent read, though the plot with all of its time jumping, time lines and such is extremely confusing to follow along.

The entire subplot in the axis of time is a disaster and we mostly skipped those section as they were ridiculously convoluted and hard to follow.

The story does interweave nicely with timeline stuff from TNG, Voyager, DS9 and Enterprise episodes. Especially and front and center are the character of Dulmur and Lucsly (spoofs on Muldur and Scully from the Xfiles..remember that show?). Both those characters are pretty well drawn out.

We do get some real insight into the Temporal Cold War that dominated many of Star Trek Enterprise’s stories…and we finally learn the identity of the Sponsor (remember the Suliban).

A decent read, not great, but worth a bit of your….time.

Star Wars Dark Times : Out of the Wilderness part 1 REVIEW August 10, 2011

Dark Times was one of our fav Star Wars comics when it first appeared on the shelves a few years back….
Then the Dark Times came to Dark Times…and the braniacs at Dark Horse delayed issue after issue….and it became hard to follow…
That said when all the issues did come out, especially for the last Blue Harvest series, they were awesome. The art of Wheatley is second to none.

Dark Times is now back with Out of the Wilderness, penned by none other than Dark Horse’s head editor Randy Stradley. The first issue has a great pace and a good mix of three plotlines. We’ve got Vader on the hunt for Jedi Jennir, Jennir on the run…then we’ve got Bomo and crew looking for Jennir too…

And of course the art is just brilliant too.
