The second of the three (soon to be four) Trek manga collections might be a little better than the first, but that doesn’t mean it is all good.

One of the better stories is actually written by Wil Wheaton – lots of action as a landing party runs afoul of two warring societies. Another decent story has Kirk & co. on trial for some such reason and joining forces, kinda, with a Klingon. Also – some cool continuity in addressing Uhura’s post-Nomad mindsweep reeducation. I always wanted to know more about that. Noted Trek author Diane Duane has the longest entry – a rambling mess of a story that features someone who looks an awful lot like Wonder Woman.

In all, a decent thing to read on the train ’cause it’ll easily fit in your coat pocket.
