Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Too Long A Sacrifice #1

Set during the time of the Dominion War, after Worf's appointment to the station but prior to the death of Jadzia Dax, the first issue of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - Too Long A Sacrifice gives us an explosion in the promenade and rising tensions aboard a station already at war. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has largely been ignored by comics (this marks the first new comic featuring the series in a decade).

Many of the staples of the series are here including Dr. Bashir and Garak enjoying lunch (and surviving the blast that destroys the restaurant). Framing the issue around a mystery for Odo to solve offers a good point of reference for the mini-series. We're also given our first red herring as early evidence points to Quark being responsible for the destruction of a competitor.

I enjoyed the issue, and seeing these characters used in a new story, although I have mixed feelings of the art of Greg Scott which seems to fit the look of Odo better than some of the other characters.
