Judgment Rites Week 8: …Yet There Is Method In It

(This is really late, I know. Christmas and all. Sorry to anyone who was invested in it!)

Picking up immediately where the previous mission left off, it’s clear right off the bat we’re not in Kansas anymore. Geometric shapes stand out against a dense star field, and a giant three-eyed head of lettuce presides over the group. This is it: the final test.

Judgment Rites, Week 4: Light and Darkness

“Light and Darkness” is the second part of the game’s major story arc, and it cuts right to the chase: there’s some kind of distress signal coming from Onyius II, go check it out. The economy of storytelling is impressive. No drawn-out space battles, no jibber-jabber—simply straight to the action.

#040: Encounter at Farpoint (TNG)

Ah, time to tuck in to yet another Star Trek adventure. I just love going on printed adventures with Kirk and Spock and all the rest. Just me and the NCC-1701, forever and ever. So what are they up to this week? Let’s see…

Wait a minute. “Next Generation”? Who’s this bald guy? And the one with the thing on his face? What’s up with the chalky pale guy? A Klingon in a Starfleet uniform? Bwaaaa? And since when do they let kids on the Enterprise?
