All in all a very satisfying conclusion to a rather unique crossover comic. No one would think that these two properties could work together, yet the author's respectful handling of them maintains their integrity. Some parts do not mesh as well as they did in volume one. Picard feels unlike himself at times, especially when he lets Guinan reveal his past with the borg. While this is important for the Doctor to understand, there were other ways to relate it. On the other hand, Data's interactions with the Doctor continue to be high points. The paintery style which looked so good in the last volume unfortunately loses some of its charm. Faces can be ill-proportioned, or slightly off-tone, feeling as if the artist did not take as much time and care with them. Otherwise it still manages to capture the actors' performances. Storywise, it is an exciting conclusion, with a humourous final note.

It seems the first bit of the book didn't get going properly. There were a few turns of phrases that I'm fairly sure would never leave Picard's mouth, so I found all that quite jarring, and the art was a little bit messy. After a flashback moment we seemed to get back on course. It was a fun little adventure, with a neat little set up for Star Trek: First Contact at the end, but it didn't seem to me to fully deliver the promise shown by the first volume.
