The Fellowship was fortunate enough to obtain a copy of STAR TREK: FLESH AND STONE from IDW Publishing. The story is by Scott and David Tipton, with art by the Sharp Brothers, colors by Andrew Elder, and letters by Neil Uyetake.

A medical conference on Space Station Diamandis 1 comes to a halt as all of the crew and dignitaries become infected with a virus that turns everyone to stone. Doctors Crusher, Pulaski, and Bashir are en route when they receive a message from the EMH doctor (now serving on the Station) to stay away. The cure to this virus may lie in the logs of a former country doctor turned chief medical officer of the starship Enterprise…

What a great idea to get all the STAR TREK doctors in a one-shot and it was executed perfectly. Scott and David Tipton were able to even work Doctor McCoy and Doctor Phlox into the story that is very believable. The Sharp Brothers supply some beautiful artwork to boot. The story was inspired by the XPRISE competition going on to develop a functioning tricorder. How cool is that? Fans of the classic STAR TREK franchise will surely enjoy this book.

STAR TREK: FLESH AND STONE is in stores now, or available for ordering at www.idwpublishing.com.
