From the back of the book
TNG Goes Manga! Untold stories from one of the most renowned science fiction franchises in history, interpreted through Japanese-style sequential art, truly takes the crew of the USS Enterprise where they've never gone before!
Changeling: Accompanying the away team to the mysterious "Labyrinth of Wisdom," Ensign Wesley Crusher receives a most unexpected lesson in what it means to have compassion for – and an appreciation of – his peers.
Sensation: Responding to a distress call from an archaeological expedition, Dr. Crusher encounters a debilitating contagion that defies the laws of medicine – and may soon spell the end of the crew of The Enterprise.
The Picardian Knot: Suffering from a lack of emotion after his contact with the Vulcan Sarek, there seems to be no cure for Capt. Picard's ennui – except possibly the inexplicable puzzle left behind by an unwanted Romulan visitor.
Loyalty: When Starfleet Command expresses their concern over Picard's brush with the Borg, Commander Will Riker will have his devotion to his captain put to the ultimate test – possibly at the cost of his own career.
