“Where There’s A Will…”
WRITER: Howard Weinstein
PENCILER: Gordon Purcell
INKER: Arne Starr
COLORIST: Tom McCraw
LETTERER: Bob Pnaha
EDITOR: Robert Greenberger
Vickie tells Kirk that her husband was killed after finding out that the government has been running a secret colonizing project that may be a threat to the Federation. With Jim as his heir and his wife (Vickie) part of the deal he has an opening to investigate. Admiral Nogura has learned the Romulans have been active in the area and it’s a bit of a coincidence so allows him to investigate. Meanwhile, Sulu and Uhura visit an old haunt they didn’t know they had both been to and a conversation with an old friend has Sulu wondering if he’s lost his chance at a captaincy.
What they got right: There are some good character moments and the set-up for a good adventure. (Pity I don’t have those issues.)
What they got wrong: The camera angles and poses are still a bit stiff.
Recommendation: A good set-up to the next mission and a good story on it’s own for the most part. Worth looking into.
I’m sorry this was a shorter review given the posting situation today. That’s just how it worked out. Regular BW operations should begin tomorrow with the next Robotech review in its proper place.
