Stephen's Thoughts
Holy crap, Spoilerites! If you loved the Transformers cartoons fo the 80s, and long for the further adventures of the animated Star Trek universe, your mind is going to explode this week. There's some fun writing in this issue that hits all the nostalgia buttons, and the art is on model for everything I remember from the day. This is light-hearted fare that is worth checking out, but don't expect universe changing events by the time this is all over.
