Reviews about Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Space Between (7):
Burilar
This book is a beautiful sight; the art is truly stunning.
The story is so confusing though. The individual chapters are all meant to tie together and they don't. And the first story, involving a race that alters records and memory to record history according to their wills, is extremely confusing.
And, what's up with the cover? Pictured are all incarnations of the Enterprise, including Kirk's. Yet the TNG crew and the Ent-D are the only stars. That's fine, but the cover suggests a cross-over of some sort.
I'd like to see more from this creative team, I think they just need to work out the kinks in their plotting.

It was mediocre, i wasnt happy with the quality of the art either. Not nearly as good as the cover art.

I bought these comics as they were released, and was disappointed at the time. But I just re-read them and thought that they improved considerably upon a re-reading. The characterization and dialogue are excellent, as is the artwork (though I didn't care for the close-up drawings of Riker's face).

The final plotline (end of issue 5 and all of issue 6) was originally very confusing to me, but on re-read I realized that the secret organization is Section 31 (re-read Boothby's dialogue), and that the mysterious "good friend" who saves Picard at the end and beams him into the secret base is Admiral Nechayev (you have to know, from the series, that the mysterious desert at the end is her favorite). Some have complained that the overarching connection of issues 5 and 6 to issues 1-4 is too loose, but in fact the end of issue 5 makes the connection to issues 1 and 2 explicit. That is, Section 31 uses the computer technology of issue 1 to rig an election somewhere, and they use the harmonic diamonds of issue 2 as a weapon against a Maquis ship. Basically, Section 31 is using the Enterprise mission logs to advance their covert political agenda and make new kinds of weapons (as explained at the end of issue 5). From within this framework, it can also be assumed that the mysterious hybrid Romulan/Federation/Borg ship of issue 3 is Section 31's. There is a Borg seen in their secret base at the end of issue 6. (Why they want Counselor Troi or Worf is a mystery, though, but you can use your imagination.) In issue 4, the "zombie" crisis nearly causes the war criminal Ghud to miss his trial and be cleared of all charges (due to a quirky alien law system). Presumably it was Section 31 that caused the crisis in a failed attempt to get Ghud (for their own political reasons). They did not anticipate that Ghud's religious conversion is authentic and that he would help the Enterprise to rescue their crew and get him to his trial on time! Very clever storytelling, IMHO.

So while the last issue can be quite confusing, it does all make sense if you read it carefully, which is why I would recommend a repeat reading, combined with an extensive knowledge of the TV shows!

There are a few things that this series does very well: the characters are all faithfully portrayed, and the creators (particularly the artist) does an amazing job, not only of capturing the feel of the Star Trek The Next Generation TV series, but, incredibly, of each of the individual seasons as well (to the point that I almost expected the stories to break into TV commercials from the early 90s).
Then, alas, there is plot. Issues 1, 2 and 5 are not so bad in this regard; they feel a bit too decompressed, but they are all intesting science fiction stories which leave very few loose ends. As for the rest: issue 3 features a mysterious hybrid ship that comes out of nowhere and attacks the Enterprise-D, apparently specifically targeting Counselor Troi. Why does it do this? Who sent it? It is never explained; the whole scenario is played as a pretext for some spacebattles and not much else. Issue 4 features an abandoned monastery full of radioactive algae that apparently causes mutations. They manage to figure this out in two lines of handwavey dialogue without even needing to use their tricorders; the whole thing seems, once again, like a pretext for a zombie plague storyline.
And finally, issue 6 is just horrendous; who are these people? How do they know where their secret base is? How will it affect Picard's carreer now that Admiral Nacheyev has tried to assassinate him? Are there missing pages here? How come Picard just abandons his crusade against this shadowy organization when he had just risked life and limb to seek it out? Why is the sky blue? ARRRRRGH!

The Space Between was IDW's first Star Trek miniseries - It was a reasonable start to their output, but vastly superior comics have followed. Each issue of the six issues of the series was a more or less standalone story dotted about the TV era of TNG, with an attempt to pull them together in the final issue.

The final chapter of the series tries to tie the series together into a neat cohesive whole. However the story is so full of holes and far from clear as to exactly who the adversary lurking in the shadows of the events shown in other issues of the series is that it really disappoints.

Aside from that final issue the other stories in the book are quite nice little stand-alone tales: A season one visit to a strange new world; A Picard-centered archaeology murder mystery (the best story in the book); A battle with a robot hybrid starship; A planet full of zombie monks, and an agricultural disaster mystery.

David Tischman really has a talent for capturing the voices of the TNG characters, and his stories are nicely conceived if sometimes a little bumpy from the occasional plot-hole.

The art throughout the series was generally excellent. Casey Maloney produces scenery that is consistently fabulous, the books feels lavish in its rich painterly style. For some readers the characters likenesses might seem a little off on occasion, particularly Riker, but I didn't find this distracting, especially amongst the beauty of the rest of the artwork.

Overall this isn't IDW strongest Star Trek comic, but it has some nice stories and should at the very least provide an enjoyable distraction for any TNG fans.
