The Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hive trade paperback collects the hit IDW mini-series from 2012, written by legendary Star Trek writer/producer Brannon Braga.

Script writers Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett take story writer Brannon Braga’s concept and carve together a passable script. What the big problem is, is that Braga tries to tell THE definitive Star Trek: The Next Generation story here, but it feels more like an expanded episode of the TV series. In short, The Borg has launched and finally taken over the Alpha Quadrant. All that stands between them and total domination is, of course, Jean-Luc Picard. Picard comes up with a plan to finish The Borg once and for all, but he needs help from another former Borg, Seven of Nine. Will they succeed? I think you know the really predictable answer to that.

Joe Corroney does a good job as artist on this series. He’s got the look of the actors down pat, as well as the look of the starships and technology down, but he just doesn’t seem to bring that much life to the project. Now, I can’t place the blame totally on him, as the story dictates the art, and the story is not that great to begin with.

Overall, this series is pretty unnecessary. With the great comics that IDW is producing based on the “new” Star Trek continuity brought to us by J.J. Abrams, I have to wonder why they went back to this well. I say, skip this and pick up any of the Star Trek ongoing series that they’re publishing now to get your Star Trek fix. You’ll do a lot better with those.
