Issue #4 came out this week and I thought it was the best issue yet. The Tiptons wrote an excellent story, this really felt like a TNG episode. I love the bit where Riker mentioned that the body snatcher ordeal just recently happened (which I was thinking right before I read that), I thought it was a nice touch. I loved the references they threw in there like the opening shot of stellar cartography that we havn't seen since Generations. I also really liked the inclusion of Dr. Selar as well as the Ferangi mind probe. Just those little things that us hardcore fans would notice :p
Messina has really gotten better and better with each issue in terms of the art. His likenesses have gotten much stronger, there were some pretty good shots of Picard and Riker.
And I'm glad they got the communicator colors right this issue :p
It's too bad there's only one more issue, I'm really enjoying this series. I really hope they do another TNG arc.
