    I haven t seen any of the newer Star Trek movies, but when I saw this book offered at my favorite online used booksellers, I just had to have it Back in the day, Star Trek meant so much to all of us The original, I mean Of course when The Next Generation came along I was one of those who resisted, but I learned to love it also.So anytime I am able to revisit the characters I enjoy myself and this book was no exception.But it was a bit creepy to see Spock drawn so old, gotta admit that.As for I haven t seen any of the newer Star Trek movies, but when I saw this book offered at my favorite online used booksellers, I just had to have it Back in the day, Star Trek meant so much to all of us The original, I mean Of course when The Next Generation came along I was one of those who resisted, but I learned to love it also.So anytime I am able to revisit the characters I enjoy myself and this book was no exception.But it was a bit creepy to see Spock drawn so old, gotta admit that.As for how well this book prepares the reader for the 2009 movie, I can t say, since I have never seen the movie But I thought the authors did a great job at pure story telling, and for me that is the most important thing of all

    Despite all my expectations to the contrary, I enjoyed the recentStar Trekfilm immensely, so when a friend and coworker recommended this prequel graphic novel, and offered to lend me his copy, I jumped at the chance How glad I am that I did, even if reading Star Trek Countdown cost me my dinner Yes, I was so engrossed in my reading yesterday evening, that I left my grocery bag behind me, when switching subways Still, it could always be worse, no I mean, a demented Romulan could be int Despite all my expectations to the contrary, I enjoyed the recentStar Trekfilm immensely, so when a friend and coworker recommended this prequel graphic novel, and offered to lend me his copy, I jumped at the chance How glad I am that I did, even if reading Star Trek Countdown cost me my dinner Yes, I was so engrossed in my reading yesterday evening, that I left my grocery bag behind me, when switching subways Still, it could always be worse, no I mean, a demented Romulan could be intent on destroying my home planetConsisting of four comic book length entries, each of which sets out a chapter of the history between Spock and Captain Nero, thisStar Trekprequel is set a few decades after the events ofStar Trek NemesisWhich sounds impossible of course, given that the new film occurs in the 23rd century, and the events of Nemesis occur in the 24th Then again, it is Star Trek, so time travel and alternate realities are practically de rigueur If you watched the film and wondered Why do the Romulans have tattoos that make them looklike Remans Why does Nero blame Spock personally for the destruction of all he loves How does a simple mining vessel gain such advanced weaponry Then you should probably locate a copy of this book More to the point, if you want to gain a better insight into the character of Nero, then this is for you Nothing could make his epic quest for vengeance anything but insanely irrational, but Star Trek Countdown does give it true pathos As such, it can only deepen the fan s appreciation of the film and of Star Trek

    Since I am in Countdown mode waiting for the DVD release LOVED the whole experience of seeing it in the theaters over the summer , I decided to read this over the weekend after rave reviews from my sister and a GoodReads friend Thank you so much, Abigail, for your great review I would probably have overlooked this for a piece of promotional fluff had it not been for your high opinion of it, and thank you, Ann, for loaning me your copy I am not accustomed to reading graphic novels, so Since I am in Countdown mode waiting for the DVD release LOVED the whole experience of seeing it in the theaters over the summer , I decided to read this over the weekend after rave reviews from my sister and a GoodReads friend Thank you so much, Abigail, for your great review I would probably have overlooked this for a piece of promotional fluff had it not been for your high opinion of it, and thank you, Ann, for loaning me your copy I am not accustomed to reading graphic novels, so I really can t say how this compares I felt some of the artwork was a bit sloppy in terms of character faces sometimes they looked very real like the actors who played the characters and sometimes it wasmuted or hard to discern facial features There were a few cases where I thought the sequencing wasn t quite as clear as it could be However, that mattered very little as the storyline was strong enough to carry through and I felt the overall characterizations were excellent and very much in keeping with those we ve come to love from the big and small screen I was pleasantly surprised by a few of my favorite characters making appearances here, but I won t say who Overall, I think this is a great little book if you loved the new ST movie and crave a biton the Nero Spock story There s a lot of drama a bit over dramatic at times, but, hey, that s the awesomeness of ST for ya and some humor, so it really feels in keeping with the tone of ST The Nero Spock backstory did help to fill in a few of the gaps left by the film not that you need this book to understand the movie, but I do think it lives up to being a companion to the film I don t know how enjoyable meaty it would seem without the movie, but I have not read other graphic novels or ST books so it is hard for me to say

    Okay, I was expecting this to be fun, interesting, and a sort of fill in the gaps to the movie not that there were really gaps in the movie, just loads to take in during one sitting I loved the movie, btw, if that helps What I wasn t expecting was to be um totally enraptured, glued to the pages, and thinking about the story when I wasn t reading it I feel so embarrassed that I was SO addicted to it but it was awesome You don t need to have seen the new film to read this, but Okay, I was expecting this to be fun, interesting, and a sort of fill in the gaps to the movie not that there were really gaps in the movie, just loads to take in during one sitting I loved the movie, btw, if that helps What I wasn t expecting was to be um totally enraptured, glued to the pages, and thinking about the story when I wasn t reading it I feel so embarrassed that I was SO addicted to it but it was awesome You don t need to have seen the new film to read this, but it does add another element if you have COUNTDOWN features Nero and Spock There s no Kirk in this story, no Dr McCoy, nor Scotty Instead, we Next Generation fans get loads of pleasant surprises when NG crew start showing up from page to page huzzah Anyway, I hadn t realized the initial Star Trek and the Next Generation were so close in time though, had I thought about it, I m sure I would have figured it out and it was fun to see what happened to certain NG members since I haven t seen the NG films terrible of me, I know Anyway, back to the story Here we learn just what transpired between Spock and Nero and why their relationship evolved as it did So, why the four stars Part of it may be my own doing Since I ve never really read graphic novels before I wasn t entirely sure how to read it, and because of that I was lost a few times trying to figure out where or when the story was But, once I caught on it was fine Also, I felt at times the story was a tad over dramatic, and that the scene enders were a tad too many what I mean is, most of the scenes ended with a character making a great, revolutionary statement Most of these were fantastic, but sometimes it felt like there were so many it took away from them all like they lost some of their impact because they were so frequent And as for the over dramatic ness of it, well, in a way that s part of the charm of Star Trek, isn t it What s , this novel was surprisingly sprinkled with the great Star Trek philosophy.I thought the illustrations were wonderful, and some of them were spot on to the actors likenesses I m curious to find out if they ll be another of these, because there is a lot left up in the air at the end Now, yes, it s because it s a prequel to the film, but there s lots from this novel that doesn t get explained in the movie If there s another novel, I ll probably hunt it down and devour it.Onething I wasn t expecting to get choked up there at the end very well done And highly recommended An early birthday present from Katie THANKS KATIE D I m SO curious to read this a because I loved the movie, and b because I ve never really read a graphic novel of this kind Live long and prosper

    This is is a collection of the 4 comics that are a prequel to the 2009 Star Trek movie The series is set 8 years after the end of Nemesis Relationships between Romulans and the Federation are the best they ve ever been, and Spock is now the official Federation Ambassador to Romulus Picard is also now a Federation Ambassador Data has successfully integrated his personality into the B 4 android, and is now Captain of the Enterprise E.Spock confronts Romulans with the news that the Hobus Star i This is is a collection of the 4 comics that are a prequel to the 2009 Star Trek movie The series is set 8 years after the end of Nemesis Relationships between Romulans and the Federation are the best they ve ever been, and Spock is now the official Federation Ambassador to Romulus Picard is also now a Federation Ambassador Data has successfully integrated his personality into the B 4 android, and is now Captain of the Enterprise E.Spock confronts Romulans with the news that the Hobus Star is in the process of going supernova, and predics that it will likely destroy Romulus The Romulan senate choose to disbelieve Spock s prediction Nero sides with Spock, and offers the use of his mining ship, the Nerada to extract rare Decalithium that Spock requires for his plan to stop the supernovae by use of red matter I know some people have taken a great dislike to the 2009 star trek movie, but for some reason I ve always prefered the less loved star trek aspects My favourite Trek series are Enterprise and DS9, which most other trekkies rank bottom, and thats the ones that even acknowledge the existence of the enterprise series So its not suprising that the 2009 movie became my absolute favourite trek movie Overtaking even my beloved First Contact.The 2009 movie stands up quite well on its own, but it does benefit greatly from the backstory in the comic series, and if you re a die hard trekkie, or just a fan of the movie, you shouldn t excuse yourself from reading it There are some details in it that solves little unanswered questions from the movie, such as why the romulan miners all have shaven and tattooed scalps Not a massively important plot point, but it s these little details that make you go ahaaaa.The major delight for me in the entire novel had to be the reappearance of Data, as I believe this is the first time it has been revealed that he did indeed resurrect properly after having his neural net downloaded into the B 4 android I couldn t help a little cheer as I saw him pictured on the bridge of the Enterprise with 4 pips on his collar There is no greater joy in Star Trek than seeing CAPTAIN DATA 3Well worth a read for any Trekkie

    Countdown provides a good backstory for the 2009 Star Trek movie, if you enjoyed the film you ll likely enjoy this as well Some of the story was explained in the movie but there are a couple other new revelations as well, withto come in Star Trek Nero I m sure This book by itself works as a self contained story but I d probably stick with watching the movie first then going back to read the prequel.


  8. Jerry Jerry says:

    I m still short on time, so, I ll just say that this was an entertaining and well drawn prequel to the Star Trek reboot.

    I have discovered a new universe Comic books I mean, I realized this universe existed, but I did not realize they had Star Trek.THEY ARE MAKING COMICS BASED OFF OF THE NEW MOVIES SO LIKE THE CHARACTERS LOOK LIKE THE ACTORS IS THAT NOT COOL OR WHAT.Yeah, I think I proved to the comic store owner that I m a Spock obsessed movie geek And also an idiot that doesn t know a thing about comics But I ll educate myself, because if the success of this venture is any indication, I ll enjoy the comic I have discovered a new universe Comic books I mean, I realized this universe existed, but I did not realize they had Star Trek.THEY ARE MAKING COMICS BASED OFF OF THE NEW MOVIES SO LIKE THE CHARACTERS LOOK LIKE THE ACTORS IS THAT NOT COOL OR WHAT.Yeah, I think I proved to the comic store owner that I m a Spock obsessed movie geek And also an idiot that doesn t know a thing about comics But I ll educate myself, because if the success of this venture is any indication, I ll enjoy the comic medium What can I say When it comes down to it, I m both a minimalist and a visual person Comics, like manga and movies, are both Minimal dialog, big images I m good.Storywise, this volume which is a prequel to the 2009 Star Trek movie is good It fleshes out the origins of Nero and his encounter with Spock s father Nicely done and had the same feel as the movie that is, good classic sci fi adventure with some political military drama thrown in to make things interesting Art is very good, particularly in the landscape shots Content is minimal some violence, brief mild language, and a few female crew members with revealing necklines.As a side note, I read this comic on my Kindle with comixology.com s app using the guided read feature The guided read feature scrolls from panel to panel, which not only makes it easy to read on a small screen displaying the entire page on the Kindle makes the font microscopic , but also makes for an almost movie like experience The transition between panels is very well done, and the flow is smooth A great app and a great site

    I mostly read this because I am excited for Star Trek Picard but it was also a fun lead in to the J.J Abrams 2009 movie.
