Review:  ★★★☆☆

Beyond a brief cameo on Star Trek:  Into Darkness, we never had a sense of what happened to the older Spock once he joined the remaining Vulcan’s to help establish their new home.  The latest arc, aptly titles ‘Legacy of Spock’ looks to explore that as he looks to find his place in this alternate timeline.  Judging from the first issue, things did not necessarily go smoothly for him as many Vulcans blamed him for what happened to their planet.  It’s a little odd how he is ostracized, as you would think a race known for their logic would believe his guidance could be beneficial.  It also is odd that they have those “ill” feelings towards him, being Vulcans and all.  Putting the logic discussion aside, its hard not to enjoy seeing Leonard Nimoy’s Spock take a leading role once again, especially after losing the talented and iconic actor in the last year.  This is going to be one of the larger story arcs in this series so we’ll have to wait to see his further interactions with his fellow Vulcan, but it’s still a tribute we’re all in for.
