This was a fun one. - JohnW
In this issue, we get a flashback adventure in which the Fourth Doctor meets the crew of the original Trek. The Fourth Doctor is often called the Best Doctor, and he's certainly the most recognizable and the face most representative of classic Who. Again, as with the Next Gen. and 11th Doctor characters, everyone is written perfectly, down to Kirk's ridiculous fighting moves and his ill-advised attempts to use them on Cybermen. I am tempted to say that classic Trek devotees may be a little offended that their heroes come off looking a little foolish. I mean, why did Spock and Scotty shoot the Cybermen on anything but maximum phaser power?
And, again, the overall story doesn't move forward much, but I grow more confident that this all matters in the overall scheme of things.
