(IDW Publishing, 2016, 120 pages)
Star Trek: Starfleet Academy follows three stories in different time periods. One story features Uhura, Spock, and Kirk from the new Star Trek films. Uhura and Kirk are students at the Academy, while Spock is an instructor. Another story introduces us to a new diverse group of Starfleet Academy students, including one from Vulcan, who participate as a team in an Olympic-like competition. The final story focuses on a Starfleet ship that is lost in space. The stories intertwine in an interesting way. I highly recommend this graphic novel to both teens and adults.
