Inviso-text spoiler:

 

The last page features Young One being told about her promotion and transfer. The Captain of the Ventura presents her with an Enterprise insignia patch, which represents her new ship assignment.

As a late comer to TREK, Mike, you can be excused for not knowing the
distinctive arrowhead emblem used to be unique to the Enterprise, not
the symbol for all of Space Fleet. Er, I mean, Star Fleet.



(As I love to point out, that image is from the Dan Dare story PROJECT
NIMBUS, which appeared in EAGLE in 1960. Art by Frank Bellamy.)

Note that the officers of the Ventura and the Fortune (from # 2) wear different patches on their tunics, Mike. Each ship in TOS has a unique insignia.

Ha ha - see, that's exactly it - I thought that symbol was for everyone!  I thought maybe there was some marking on it signifying rank or something, but I get it now.

I'll go back and look at the different patches and tunics when I get home.

That's cool - that was my only question so far on this series - it's really easy to get into even for a new Trek fan like me.

Hey JB - fantastic stuff. The new shading adds a really beautiful new dimension to the art.  Between this and Angel it's feeling like the Superman years to me all over again! : )

There were some panels and ship interior pages that gave me tingles. I
really, really liked the design work on the Venture, both inside and out.

I absolutely loved this issue -- especially since I was expecting the antagonists from next issue to show up (I was confusing the previews).

Very nice Star Trek feel to all of these issues.  You have really captured the TOS design motif perfectly , Mr. Byrne.

Best thing that I've read all week!

The story in this issue has the same sense of wonder to it that some original TOS' episodes had.

Just finished #3 and loved it.  This series isn't even over yet and I am dying to see what other Star Trek stories JB has in store for us.
