From the pen of acclaimed Cyborg writer Morgan Hampton comes a new four-part miniseries spinning out of IDW’s Eisner-nominated Star Trek series and fan favorite Star Trek: Defiant series! In the aftermath of Kahless’ harrowing Day of Blood, Jake Sisko struggles to find his place in the universe now that his family has been reunited and his father, Benjamin Sisko, has once again saved the galaxy. Meanwhile, Alexander Rozhenko is recovering mentally and emotionally from his time as one of Kahless’ devout followers. Though his father, Worf, was able to break him away from the Red Path cult, Alexander is haunted by his actions during the bloody coup and is unsure of his ability to atone for the devastation he caused. Jake and Alexander find their stories intertwined as they’re thrust into an alternate universe where they followed their father’s footsteps into Starfleet stardom. As officers aboard the U.S.S. Avery, Jake and Alexander encounter alternate versions of other children of Starfleet legends who show them they all may have a bit more in common than it would seem.

Star Trek: Sons of Star Trek #1 is a captivating journey penned by the talented Morgan Hampton, enriched further by Angel Hernandez’s skillful art and Jake Bartok’s striking cover design. Set against the backdrop of post-Kahless turmoil, the narrative delves deep into the struggles of familiar characters as they grapple with their identities and destinies.

Hampton masterfully weaves together the narratives of Jake Sisko and Alexander Rozhenko, exploring their inner conflicts following significant events. Jake’s quest for purpose after his family’s reunion and Benjamin Sisko’s heroics resonates with authenticity, while Alexander’s emotional turmoil after his harrowing ordeal with the Red Path cult adds layers of depth to his character.

The introduction of an alternate universe, where familiar faces tread different paths, injects an intriguing element of unpredictability into the storyline. As Jake and Alexander navigate this new reality aboard the U.S.S. Avery, encounters with alternate versions of Starfleet progenies offer thought-provoking insights into the nature of destiny and legacy.

One of the standout aspects of this issue is the exceptional artwork by Hernandez, which effortlessly captures the essence of the characters and their surroundings. The attention to detail and dynamic visual storytelling enhance the overall experience, drawing readers deeper into the narrative.
