Q is once again messing with the crew of the Enterprise, and we are going to see if this mega-Star Trek crossover lives up to our expectations in this week’s review of Star Trek: The Q Conflict #2 from IDW Publishing.

STAR TREK: The Q Conflict #2
Writer: Scott Tipton, David Tipson
Artist: David Messina
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: $3.99
It’s Captain vs. Captain vs. Captain vs. Captain in the most high-stakes scavenger hunt the galaxy has ever seen as Picard, Kirk, Janeway, Sisko and their teams compete for the amusement of their godlike tormentors. The biggest Star Trek crossover event ever continues here!

The crew of The Original Series, The Next Generation, Voyager, and Deep Space Nine meet for the first time! Written by fan-favorite Star Trek scribes Scott & David Tipton! Each issue has two interconnected covers by David Messina in his return to Star Trek!

I’m not bothered by the unusual likenesses (and they are a bit unusual throughout the issue) and I have to say I enjoy the scrambled teams gimmick, which I did NOT see coming. I just think that Janeway having Riker, Kira and Scotty gives her a huge advantage, and this thing should be over already based on that trio.Matthew's Thoughts
I’m always good with a good Star Trek multi-show crossover, and this issue doesn’t disappoint. The character’s voices are captured well, and the gimmick of the competition has me interested in going forward with the rest of this series. I do wonder why some of the characters look so… rotund, though?Stephen's Thoughts
