See Sisko Test Borg Tech For Dominion War In Preview Of ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – The Dog Of War’ #2

This week IDW continues its new mini-series celebrating the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The five-issue “Dog of War” mini-series is touted as an exclusive “lost episode” set within the timespan of DS9. It is written by Mike Chen (Star Wars: Brotherhood) with art from Trek vet Angel Hernandez. We have a five-page preview and all the covers from the sophomore issue.

The Dog of War #2 (of 5)


As Latinum the corgi begins winning over the hearts of the DS9 crew, Quark finds his own greed-filled heart touched by the large-lobed creature. But only a fool passes up a business opportunity! Meanwhile, Sisko tests the mysterious Borg component brought aboard the station in hopes of finding a tactical advantage in the war against the Dominion.

This just doesn’t look like a good story.

I’d have imagined Sisko being absolutely repulsed by the idea of using Borg tech after losing his wife at Wolf 359.

Very much so.

It’s all out of canon.

Non sequitur. Comics and novels are always ‘gamma’ or ‘beta’ canon. Readers understand that.

They’re enjoyable anyways. When they’re good, they’re often better written than the shows.

I give the comics quite a bit of leeway given the medium but this one is just absurd.

I love the comic cover emulating the first contact poster

Is this a joke?

Sisko testing Borg tech!? Whaaaat?

Doesn’t seem right at all.

Dropping a line to say that our household copy of the Lower Decks trade paperback omnibus edition arrived on the weekend.

It’s fantastic. As funny or funnier than the show itself and the art is spot-on. There are tiny meta comments at the bottom of each page that have my spouse and I laughing out loud.

In my view, it’s the best IDW Trek comic offering we’ve had.

More please!
