Summary: "Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise, it's continuing mission to explore strange new world, to seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no one has gone before"....Into Manga!  Join Captain Picard along with the crew of the Enterprise into the Manga universe, the ever Sci-Fi universe in a Japanese Manga style as they discover new worlds, aliens and adventure.
Review: This was an amusing Manga to read.  Based on the hit Sci-Fi TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation, this book gives you 4 unique stories of it's crew and it's adventures. In the world of science fiction, Manga artists and authors give Star Trek a new look.  I enjoy the fact it kept in spirit of the Star Trek universe, characters, personalities and story.  The idea of exploring space and finding and learning new places, aliens, cultures and views is the ultimate dream of any futuristic pioneer.
As a fan of Star Trek and Manga/anime I enjoy the blend of the two.  It mixes the science-fiction stories of Star Trek with a twist of anime looks, style and a bit of humor as well.  Manga and anime has it's fair share of sci-fi stories, anything from robots, aliens to space armadas, it is a fits well with a Manga version of Star Trek, I almost wonder why it wasn't done sooner.  This Star Trek Manga is great for anyone who loves Sci-Fi or is an otaku.
