Star Trek: The Next Generation - Doctor Who: Assimilation² #7 - Assimilation Squared Part 7 Review

Star Trek: The Next Generation - Doctor Who: Assimilation² #7 Review


Cover - 5/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?


Color/Ink - 3/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening?


Layout - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?


Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?


Verdict - 4.4
- What I think: The default cover we see the TARDIS in flight to the Borg cube during the battle of Wolf 359, and the Alternate is a nice shot of The Doctor, Amy Pond, Jean-Luc Picard and William Riker standing in front of the TARDIS. My biggest gripe with this series so far has been the art, or maybe the coloring. While I appreciate the painted look as an art style, I have never liked it in comics. This is not the worst I've seen it's not great. Past that I think they did a good job of trying to keep the characters well in character even though they are in different universes. There are a few areas of dialogue that don't fit perfectly but it doesn't distract from the overall story, or flow. They also provided the Doctor Who fans that might know know much about TNG information about the Borg and how Picard became Locutus and how he was able to escape the hive. Since this is before Voyager, Seven Of Nine isn't mentioned up as being another who escaped the Borg Queen. I am really enjoying the series and can't wait to read the last issue. Again I really just wish I liked the art better this would definitely be a 5 all the way.
