The Rundown: Sisko and his crew track down another potential god and discover who is behind the campaign of killing them all.
Sisko’s return continues to be difficult for him, but it is also difficult for the son he left behind who is now with him on his mission. As the two deal with the unspoken conflict between them, the rest of the Theseus crew continue to work on finding a way to locate the next target of the god killer. After executing a promising theory, they discover where one might be located.
After traveling to a location between the Klingon and Romulan empires, the Theseus discover a structure that is both machine and organic. A structure lying dormant in space and yet still alive. As they begin to investigate the entity, they are interrupted by the god killer and his mission to end all gods everywhere.
The Story: A thoughtful, engaging and thrilling story from Kelly and Lanzing. I continue to love this crew and the intricacy of this mission. The story speaks to everything I love about Star Trek and these characters including the conflict with Sisko as he tries to reconnect with his son. The conflict with Worf is also compelling and I look forward to seeing how they evolve.
The Art: Rosanas and Chudakov deliver some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue and I love the visual style of this series.
