Spock Marooned: Star Trek Story by Paul Pope

Like many of you, I saw JJ Abrams Star Trek reboot.  It was pretty thrilling, enjoyable despite many plot holes, and I thought they accomplished the impossible task of finding the right actors to play Kirk, Spock, and Bones.  I liked all of them, especially Simon Pegg as Scotty.

The photography was stunning, as well as Michael Giacchino's Star Trek Soundtrack .  I can't recommend the soundtrack highly enough--it's original but evokes tones of the classic Star Trek score at the same time.
I ran across this today in the special JJ Abrams edited issue of Wired, Paul Pope's Star Trek story:

The story and illustrations by Pope are a thing of beauty.  It's an interlude, narrated by Spock, during the time he spends marooned on that ice planet.  You can read the story online at  Nuff said.
