Strange New Worlds: The Scorpius Run #5


Captain Pike’s worst nightmare has come to fruition. Under immense gravitational waves on the racecourse, the Enterprise’s shields have collapsed, her hull integrity is failing, and the ship is being torn apart, piece by piece. All the while, Spock is aboard an alien vessel of foreign tech, among a crew desperate to push on and win Zephyx’s race. He just may be the Enterprise crew’s only hope for survival, but can he persuade the others to defy Zephyx when their home planet is on the line, and can he do so in time?

I honestly can say that I have never seen anything like this before…

Watch Star Trek Beyond. Justin Lin rips the ship apart bit by bit.

The ship gets ripped into bits and is presumably back to normal by the next episode? They must have thought they were writing for Voyager. :D
