The Rundown: Sisko and Worf continue to hunt Kahless while the others fight to stop a civil war.

The Klingon home world is in chaos and Worf and Sisko continue to make their way to where they believe Kahless is hiding. Along the way they continue their interpersonal conflict and its complicated effect on their friendship. At the same time, Crusher and Sela attempt to save the life of Martok while the other members of the away team fight to stop the communications blackout.

In space, Spock joins his old friend Scotty on the Theseus in an attempt to draw fire away from the planet’s surface while Torres and Paris try to get the Defiant back online.

The Story: Cantwell delivers a blistering, exciting and intense action story in this issue. The interpersonal conflicts continue even with the backdrop of civil war and I like that the story doesn’t shy away from those elements in dealing with the bigger conflict. There is some great action on display throughout the issue and Cantwell does a fantastic job of slowly raising the tension in the story while revealing some interesting things for the characters to overcome.

The Art: Unzueta delivers some beautiful art in the issue. I love the ship designs and technology as well as the character designs and how well they work with the action heavy story.
