Star Trek: Ongoing, Volume 9: The Q Gambit
Writer: Mike Johnson
Artist: Tony Shasteen

Upcoming Release Date: April 14, 2015

Synopsis: The crew of the new Star Trek film franchise encounters the classic villain Q for the first time in this galaxy-spanning adventure developed in association with screenwriter/producer Roberto Orci! The mischievous Q sends James T. Kirk on a quest that will see the Enterprise joining forces with familiar faces from Star Trek lore.


Review: This graphic novel blends the new Star Trek films with the old canon TNG/DS9. I always enjoyed the Q episodes of TNG and Voyager. I enjoyed seeing Jean-Luc again, this time talking to Q about alternate timelines. 

Pretty much every DS9 character makes an appearance in this book. Terok Nor is not Deep Space Nine. I enjoyed all the cameos. 

The classic Star Trek idea of a no-win scenario is brought up yet again. I give this graphic novel a 3.5/5. It is a fun read for fans of EVERYTHING Star Trek. New fans unfamiliar with the older television shows will not get all the references.
