Notes about Graphic Novel in general:

  • The Japanese title Shinsei Shinsei means new life, new star
  • 3 various covers for this issue. The two alternate covers available: one exclusive to Diamond Comic Distributors and the other for distribution by Creation Entertainment at convention events.

 

Side Effects by Chris Dows

 

Synopsis Read By:  Donavon

 

Notes/Review:

Donavon:

  • Borg origin story. Very nice.
  • In the zombie looking Borg, there is a Ferengi. Federation has no idea of the Ferengi until the mid 24th Century (shortly before ST:NG)
  • I hate that all of the non-sick aliens had to die with the space station. I would have liked to known what Spock’s alternate plan was
  • The art was good. I really liked it. Not too cartoony.
  • Sound effects in Japanese was really cool, but sometimes I would have liked to know if it was a comm beeping or if the ship was on red alert.
  • The idea of Time being warped around the black hole and that being what they built the lab there was good. Though it really would not help the people on their planet. As they are working in the lab for a few weeks, the plague had years to ravage their people. The idea of sending a ship out and then bringing it back a week later to see how the virus spread in the aliens over a few years was good though. Any ways, liked it and did not like it at the same time.
