1. szitzma - April 21, 2009

Interesting to note the 2 enterprise designs in the comic.

2. szitzma - April 21, 2009

Ahhh! first and second!

3. T'Vek - April 21, 2009

FIRST????!

Nice background intro into the new movie, good art work, and captures the essence of Spock throughout all his years and different aspects to his character, conflict and history, a very logical approach

4. MC Doctor - April 21, 2009

#1 & #2

And both are really poorly drawn.

At least the story is sort of nice.

5. The Original Spock's Brain - April 21, 2009

That comic is so sweeeeeeeet! Love backstory!

6. MC Doctor - April 21, 2009

#3

And touched on Uhura – she loves her “music”.

7. Jeyl - April 21, 2009

Ooo. Khan is remembered.

8. Spock's Uncle - April 21, 2009

the artwork is kinda creepy… and that’s supposed to be Kirk from TWOK? The storyline is intriguing. And they are changing history, so that all the adventures from TOS can be “retold” in this new paradigm.

Hmmm.

9. Tiberius1000 - April 21, 2009

This makes me understand the character of Spock in whole new way Fascinating!

10. Pragmaticus - April 21, 2009

Nice little piece of backstory. I like it, even if it could have been better drawn.

11. Valar1 - April 21, 2009

horrible art, okay story

12. Bob Tudley - April 21, 2009

When is this site going to do the grown-up thing and ban people who do that stupid “FIRST!” crap?

13. PF - April 21, 2009

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Paul Pope’s Euro-manga art style isn’t for everyone, but I can’t help being disappointed in the tastes of others. Can’t just one Star Trek comic story be drawn in a way that isn’t bland boilerplate?

14. sean - April 21, 2009

Don’t know what some folks are talking about – GREAT art by Paul Pope.

15. LordCheeseCakeBreath - April 21, 2009

Really cool!

#12 I like the First. It a fun little tradition that we came up with.

16. Danpaine - April 21, 2009

Interesting little sidebar….that is some awful drawing, though.

17. Jon - April 21, 2009

I enjoyed seeing the TWOK enterprise and the JJprise used like that

18. John Hazard - April 21, 2009

I think the Cloverfield monster would freeze to death on Hoth. I mean, Delta Vega.

But I guess that guy can only draw one monster.

19. Thomas - April 21, 2009

Is anyone else having problems reading the comic by clicking the images?

20. Sybok's Secret Brother - April 21, 2009

A nice new element in what we know so far…

21. Thomas - April 21, 2009

I can’t get the link to work either.

22. THX-1138 - April 21, 2009

#15-LCCB

We didn’t come up with it. Unless you mean”the entire pre-adolescent internet community” by us.

Cartoon is too small. Too much work to read. Frozen monster design looked like a lily.

That is all.

23. John Hazard - April 21, 2009

P.S. Paul Pope is a remarkable artist, I think it’s incredible that he did a Trek comic. I wish I could read it, but I fear the spoilers ;-)
I wouldn’t expect his depictions of the Enterprise to please- his strength is his energetic, organic style. He’s very loose, which as an artist who overthinks everything, I greatly admire.

24. New Horizon - April 21, 2009

The artwork is fantastic…it’s ART people, not cookie cutter, comic book, paint by numbers stuff that you find on the news stand. The lines are beautiful, emotional and evocative. You have to open your eyes and mind to see what is being expressed through the lines.

25. screaming satellite - April 21, 2009

cool no need to buy the mag now!

26. ngl;sdb;ga - April 21, 2009

” Hoth. I mean, Delta Vega.”

Star Trek had ice planets 10 years before Star Wars existed, you little wiener.

27. screaming satellite - April 21, 2009

btw is the comic a seperate part of the WIRED mag that you can take out? or is it part of the actual mag?

28. sean - April 21, 2009

Pope’s art is fantastic, you silly dumbheads.

29. John Hazard - April 21, 2009

Re: 26. ngl;sdb;ga:
I know- that was more an expression of my frustration at my beloved Trek being redone by a man who openly prefers Star Wars- they are very different franchises.

The one part of Star Wars that Trek could have sorely benefited from would be better design work- Lucas has people designing those aliens, ships, worlds, etc. years before the movies come out. I wish they put that kind of care into the re-design of the ships, props, costumes, aliens, etc. but they rushed this movie into production and it shows (though by all accounts everything else is very well done).

P.S. I am not a little wiener. I am a very big wiener.

30. Tyrus Manuel - April 21, 2009

yeah, you guys need to recognize the ability of Paul Pope, also anyone think clues to the ARG could be stuck throughout that issue?

I am working through it just trying to determine what is a puzzle and what isn’t, but I think the timing and JJ’s heavy involvement might be more than coincidence…

31. MORN SPEAKS - April 21, 2009

So that monster’s mouth is supposed to be an anus? That’s really gross!

32. LostOnNCC1701 - April 21, 2009

Pope is a great artist and not too shabby a writer either. Check out Batman: Year 100, for example, which won a Eisner or two.

It’s a very distinct style and I admit it probably isn’t as suited to Star Trek as it is to the more urban, cyberpunk-style stories he usually does, but it’s a perfectly good short tale.

Interesting how Spock calls Khan the “Greatest Adversary”. I mean, Khan is my favorite too, and he does have the distinction of facing Kirk more than once (and you aren’t going to declare Mudd the greatest adversary), but I’m sort of surprised something like the Doomsday machine or the Gorn or that giant Space Amoeba thing from “Immunity Syndrome” weren’t used.

33. Edwin - April 21, 2009

Anyone from the UK of a certain age will remember the Star Trek Annuals. Star Trek Annual 1976 — a story called Ice Journey! I am holding out for a movie of that! LOL!

34. Pat D. - April 21, 2009

Well, Spock did _die_ when they encountered Khan, so maybe he is biased?

35. Mr. Atomic - April 21, 2009

The creature from “Trek” only very vaguely has any resemblance to the monster from “Cloverfield” – they really aren’t that similar.

36. Gary Seven of Nine - April 21, 2009

I suppose that you also have an issue with the fact that John Williams, who composed the Theme to Star Wars also scored TMP (Which gave us a Star Trek theme that is *almost* as synonymous with the franchise as the Alexander Courage theme)?

J.J. had the balls to admit that he is a Star Wars fan? Big deal! Your “beloved Trek” is also enjoyed by people who are liking what they’re seeing from J.J. so far.

Nick Meyer wasn’t even a fan of Star Trek or Star Wars, and he gave us TWOK and TUC! What about ILM? ILM did the visual effects for more Trek than you can shake a stick at, so George Lucas had an impact on Trek from the Genesis Planet animation to the Borg Cube VS. the Starfleet armanda in First Contact.

“Rushed this movie into production”…at least Paramount is bringing Trek back with respectable production and marketing budgets.

I respect the fact that you love Trek. We all do. However, visiting this site and seeing people people trying to put lipstick on sour grapes time and time again is getting really old.

37. The Original Spock's Brain - April 21, 2009

Pope’s art work is stylistically captivating. His work has much more “life” to it than IDW’s “Countdown”.

38. ProperTrekkieUK - April 21, 2009

@ 29 and others

I really don’t understand what everyone’s beef with JJ is over the fact that he likes Star Wars more!? Get over it people!! Your beloved franchise is being handled by one of the best directors in the industry at the moment, irregardless as to whether he likes Star Wars more or not! If you had to wait around for a decent director to come along with a decent budget who also happened to be a Trek fan we would be waiting for a long time! I also feel that Trek could do with a fresh injection of ideas, be they from someone who likes Star Wars more or someone who likes Sex in the City more…grow up yea!

Also that looks nothing like the Cloverfield monster! Don’t critisise someone who obviously makes a living from creature design! They are quite different designs!

I think a considerable amount of design work has gone into the new Trek and I think it shows! There is a much more realistic feel to it and I think everyone on the design/production side has done a cracking job! Lets not complaining about something we haven’t see yet…yea?

I have no problem with people expressing concern about parts of the film, but complaining for complaining sake is pathetic and it is beginning to get teadious! By all means have a fair opinion, but a reasoned one….yea?

39. New Horizon - April 21, 2009

Personally, I take issue in that it was actually JERRY GOLDSMITH who scored TMP and NOT John Williams. Do your research.

40. Justin Olson - April 21, 2009

@ 26. ngl;sdb;ga – April 21, 2009

Star Trek had ice planets 10 years before Star Wars existed.

*****

This is certainly true, but Delta Vega wasn’t an ice planet — at least not when it was featured in the 2nd pilot “WNMHGB.” If memory serves, it looked exactly like Talos IV, because the filmmakers were just re-using the set from the 1st pilot, “The Cage.”

If Abrams, et al. wanted an ice planet, why didn’t they use Psi 2000 instead? Is it possible they got the two confused?

41. Carlos Teran - April 21, 2009

Loved the comic. The artwork reminds me of Vampirella’s in the 70’s. However, the direct link with the movie is greatly appreciated.

42. Selor - April 21, 2009

Because Psi 2000 is dead? @40

43. KHAN, the Weasel - April 21, 2009

Hmmm, the Artwork of the comic is kinda seventies-like but it captures the essence; I like it. And the story gives some nice insight on spock’s charakter. I hunger for mmmmooooorrrreee…

44. Will_H - April 21, 2009

Nice little story with the comic, even if the art isnt that great. Even had an Enterprise reference or two in there, but that’s only fitting since if nothing else the series gave us great insight into Vulcan culture.

45. Troubled Tribble - April 21, 2009

I assume that is Kirk’s pod being launched in the last two panels…..

46. LostOnNCC1701 - April 21, 2009

“Well, Spock did _die_ when they encountered Khan, so maybe he is biased?”

Good point.

About Delta Vega:
Either A: It’s a multi-climated planet and Spock, Scotty, etc are in a icy region (something that does not happen close to enough in Science Fiction, mainly due to budget constraints, and the “Enhanced” version of WNMHGB has a huge storm formation near the north pole, probably blocking our view of the icy region). Or B) Delta Vega is actually the star, and this is a different planet in that system than the WNMHGB planet.

—-

Oh, and both Star Trek and Star Wars are fine franchises with their pros and cons, and I don’t really care about what one Abrams likes better. And both have admitted roots in “Forbidden Planet”.

Now had he said he thought “The Adventures of Pluto Nash” or “Battlefield Earth” were his favorite, then I’d be worried.

47. subatoi - April 21, 2009

Can anyone tell me if it matters to read the new comic before or after Countdown?

Thanks

48. LostOnNCC1701 - April 21, 2009

After, I’m guessing.

49. Paul B. - April 21, 2009

To those defending Pope’s artwork: go for it. But stop telling us we should appreciate it or that we need to open our eyes and minds. Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder–and clearly, many of our eyes are less than impressed with Pope’s work in this comic. His old Spock and TWOK Spock/Kirk are HORRIBLE. Almost everything else is fine, even fun, but the Spock on Delta Vega and in the TWOK scene is a complete joke.

I see that you’ve already been corrected by New Horizon, but I have to repeat it. Please don’t correct others with INCORRECT information. Even if, as a fan, you don’t already know that Goldsmith wrote the TMP score, a little Wikipedia never hurts before correcting others… :)

50. Sci-Fi Bri - April 21, 2009

i agree that pope’s art have more “life” as you say, but lets not imply that the IDW countdown art was bad. countdown’s coloring is very good and the faces look very expressive…imo

I miss Zarabeth. I wish Spock could revisit her. Alas, the library and Mr. Atos are gone forever.

53. Closettrekker - April 21, 2009

#40—“If Abrams, et al. wanted an ice planet, why didn’t they use Psi 2000 instead? Is it possible they got the two confused?”

Delta Vega was already established as a planet with a remote station on the surface. I think that is obviously what the writers needed or wanted in that part of the story. So instead of creating a “new” planet to suit that purpose, they probably wanted to give homage to one that was depicted in the 2nd pilot. For the most part, it seems to have been well-received, but a few, of course, have found reason to complain about it.

The fact that Delta Vega is not depicted as an “ice planet” in WNMHGB is easily reconciled, IMO (for those who require that). Perhaps they are on the other side of the planet from the ‘lithium cracking station’ in WNMHGB, or its rotation cycle has brought winter to the station. Who cares?

Personally, I don’t need Abrams to provide me with reconciliatory material on the seemingly different climate for Delta Vega (or even its position relative to the “Galactic Barrier”).

I am fine with artistic license on the matter. And if Abrams is giving a “shout out” to ‘The Empire Strikes Back’, I don’t care. I like that movie too.

To me, it is easy to see this planet as the same one on which Kirk buries Gary Mitchell in the original timeline because:

A) They told me it is Delta Vega; and

B) My imagination functions quite well.

54. Mr. Scott - April 21, 2009

This warrants a SPOILER DISCLAIMER, please!! Thanks, Anthony.

55. LostOnNCC1701 - April 21, 2009

“My imagination functions quite well.”

Agreed. Virtually every “mistake” or “retcon” in this new movie can be explained away if you think about it long enough. Don’t though. I have better things to be doing.

56. Deux - April 21, 2009

49. Um. Telling us beauty is a personal thing and that different people can like and dislike something without being wrong. Then saying ‘horrible’ as though it were fact for everyone.

Irony much? You disliking != bad. Bad is technical, disliking is personal taste.

57. MP - April 21, 2009

Nice of Wired to put up these bits, but I recommend you guys still buy the actual issue. There’s some good stuff in there. Well done, Mr. Abrams!

58. I am Kurok! - April 21, 2009

The frozen planet monster reminds me of onw of those frilly-neck lizards.

59. JonWes - April 21, 2009

Also loved the art! He has a great style.

60. Closettrekker - April 21, 2009

#49—“…but the Spock on Delta Vega and in the TWOK scene is a complete joke.”

I didn’t see Spock depicted in a TWOK scene. I did see Spock depicted as playing 3-D chess with Captain Kirk on the TOS-era Enterprise (similar to WNMHGB), and recalling those many games helping his thought process later in the Battle Of The Mutara Nebula.

“He’s intelligent—but not experienced. (His) pattern indicates ‘2 dimensional thinking’ “.—-Spock referring to Khan while on the bridge of the Enterprise in TWOK

I’m not a comic book reader (Countdown was the first one I have ever read), so I don’t really care about the artwork, but I certainly didn’t think the “scene” was a joke. I liked it alot.

Good fanboy stuff…

61. starnut - April 21, 2009

i think you are all full of it.

62. The Original Spock's Brain - April 21, 2009

What’s up with these mono-climatic planets? Never hear of a planet that has more than one climate? How about Earth? Could Kirk just been dumped in wintertime in the coldest region of Delta Vega?

Both the original and the remastered versions of Delta Vega have what could to be an ice cap at one of the poles.

*************
Sorry, I seriously meant to say “in my opinion” about it being “horrible.” No, I don’t mean it as a fact at all…sorry about that! :)

To be clear: in *my opinion*, Pope’s TWOK/old Spocks are horrible, but everything else is extremely spiffy! :)

***********************

Um…I’m confused (or, more precisely, you seem to be).

You just said you didn’t see Spock depicted in a TWOK scene, and then you specifically reference exactly the scene that was depicted. Spock sitting on the TWOK bridge talking to Kirk about Khan’s 2-D thinking = scene from TWOK. (You even typed “Spock referring to Khan while on the Enterprise in TWOK.” Um…that’s “Spock depicted in a TWOK scene.”)

The scene wasn’t a joke; it’s the same scene we saw in TWOK. But Pope’s artwork for Spock and Kirk in that scene is (in MY opinion) a joke.

“Art, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.”

As an Art History teacher:

1. No “Art” is not like “Beauty”, because you said so, without proper elaboration and illustration.
2. I would give your essay an “F” for use of a “2-dimensional” cliche, without proper elaboration and illustration.

67. Buddy Deering-68 - April 21, 2009

Love this little aside to old and new/old continuity. Looking very much forward to the flick. Paul Pope’s not for everyone unfortunately. But I’ve always liked his art.
Its got a pulse,unlike the drab,photo-real looking stuff in most Trek comics.
But it’s funny how artist still struggle with rendering the Enterprise.
Seems simple enough,a circle with three cylinders.
But it’s not like there isn’t reference available.

68. JohnnyMoo - April 21, 2009

Older Spock looks wobbly in the comic, but I still like the art. The colouring in particular is nicely reminiscent of the TOS style and I like the story references to TAS.

69. fred - April 21, 2009

DANG, that artist sure draws UGLY people! Shoot!

70. weerd1 - April 21, 2009

Big fan of Paul Pope: his Batman Year 100 was fantastic.

POSSIBLE SPOILERS FROM “COUNTDOWN”!!!!!!!

Hmm.. Spock stranded on DV- adding that to the apparent accidental nature of the time travel shown in “Countdown” I wonder if he has been there for the last twenty-five or so years? Assuming of course Nero and Spock actually arrive from the 24th (25th?) about the time Nero destroys the Kelvin. Or, has Spock been out doing things for the last 25 years that we don’t see? Or, do he and Nero arrive at two separate points in history? Hmm.

71. KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!!!!!!! - April 21, 2009

bought it yesterday. Great mag!

72. Barking Alien - April 21, 2009

A big fan of creature concept art and the idea of aliens, this ice world beastie looks oddly out of place in its environment. I mean, its red so no camoflague for what seems to be an ambush attacker, lots of eyes that would freeze shut under the snow and ice and a month that just seems unnecessarily complicated.

Very odd. They should’ve called Terry Whitlach or Wayne Barlowe for this job.

AD
Barking Alien

73. Daoud - April 21, 2009

#73 Perhaps Delta Vega has a high axial tilt, so the winters are really hellish. (Say near 90°) This creature might be normally in hibernation, and its red color then is perfect when the thaw comes?

#63 You’re full of Exactly Right [tm]. :)

74. PF - April 21, 2009

@72, as much as I love Barlowe and Witlach’s work, it wouldn’t be hard to concoct a reason why this creature might be bright red — look at the bright red coloration of giant tube worms that live around volcanic vents on the ocean floor. Maybe the creature looks entirely different in other spectra. And so on.

Far more disturbing was the artist’s insight into his creative process:

“It needed the most disgusting mouth,” Page says. The artist considered crabby, finger-like oral appendages, then decided there’s nothing ickier than the sight of a prolapsed rectum. For reference, Page hunted down hundreds of pictures of that unfortunate condition. “If the government saw them,” he jokes, “I’d be institutionalized.”

75. Spock with a Crowbar - April 21, 2009

I love Paul Pope’s artwork. For more check out “Batman: Year 100″ and his own “Heavy Liquid.”

It would be a dream to see him do more Trek comics. You listening IDW?

76. Plum - April 21, 2009

This is the coolest Star Trek comic since Gold Key. I love Paul Popes work. Been a fan of his for ages!

This is my favorite thing about the new film. I love this! Thank you Wired!

77. Pointy-Eared Dyale - April 21, 2009

Loved it!

78. Shatner_Fan_Prime - April 21, 2009

I liked the comic. It seems like things Spock would actually contemplate while in exile. I like the way he refers to Khan as “our greatest adversary.”

:-)

79. Jefferies Tuber - April 21, 2009

I like Countdown and I have no complaints, but I hope the comic franchise makes bolder choices, like hiring Paul Pope, going forward.

My favorite part is Spock slouching in his chair, while contemplating his 3d chess move.

80. The Angry Klingon - April 22, 2009

actually that monster bears a strong resemblance to the ‘Denebian Slime Devil’ pictured in teh Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual which is long OOP. It was re-rendered in color for Worlds of the Federation.

“Star Trek had ice planets 10 years before Star Wars existed, you little wiener.”

And on the other side we have the real planetary objects like the Jupiter Moon Europa, totally covered with a 90 km thick ice crust, which is plus / minus 4 billion years older than Star Trek (sorry, don’t know the exact date).
Come on, guys! This is not Star Trek vs. Star Wars.

83. Holger - April 22, 2009

Great comic! The TOS era Kirk looks strange, though.

84. Creed - April 22, 2009

Why are people so one dimensional in their thinking? Just because Kirk is surrounded by ice it has to be an ‘ice planet’ – yeah, because earth is the same climate everywhere.

Pity they didn’t include the fact that Kirk tends to beat spock at triD chess. If that scene happened in the series Spock quickly had the tables turned on him – as I recall spock in WNMHGB said it would be checkmate in a few moves and then lost.

I was thinking the same thing. Delta Vega’s frigid climate could be a result of a high axial tilt. Perhaps the planet is located far from its sun which also can affect its climate. The planet we saw during WNMGHB was during one of the milder seasons like Spring or Summer.
