When the Enterprise crew embarks on a mission of planetary First Contact, Captain Kirk finds a peaceful, idyllic society, one happily linked together by a global thought network—or so it appeared.

1. Walshy - April 21, 2010

Can’t get hold of these where I live :-((

2. Melllvar - April 21, 2010

Trek Comics ftw!!

3. CarlG - April 21, 2010

Just to mix things up, one time, I’d like to see the Enterprise visit a seemingly idyllic society… that is exactly as it appears.

Shortest episode ever.

4. Andy Patterson - April 21, 2010

I love these old style covers. And I dug my first issue of McCoy, frontier doctor.

5. Holger - April 21, 2010

Burden of Knowledge #2 sounds like a classic TOS story – I love it!

6. Robert H. - April 21, 2010

I wonder if they thought about making the movie adaptation with the original series images (updated)? In other words, draw a young William Shatner in place of Chris Pine. No offense to Chris, in fact, he did a better Kirk than Shatner did.

As a kid, I read an adaptation of “Ghostbusters II” where the characters were drawn in their “Real Ghostbusters” cartoon appearances. Rather interesting way of doing a comic adaptation, I thought, even then.

8. "Check the Circuit!" - April 21, 2010

@6

Oh dude. Raise your shields. The Wrath of the Trekkies is about to descend upon you.

(I’m not arguing with your point though.)

9. Frederick the Trek Scrapbook Guy - April 21, 2010

#6, Pine might have “done” Kirk, but Shatner “was” Kirk. But I would love to see a drawn adaptation with our familiar faces in it! When I read the book adaptation, I try to picture them instead of the new people.

10. Frederick the Trek Scrapbook Guy - April 21, 2010

That Uhura cover art is stunning! Pant*pant*pant…

11. thebiggfrogg - April 21, 2010

Wow, that image of Uhura! I read a comment in the Karl Urban article about how nuUhura was a bit obvious and blah compared to the slightly mysterious allure of the Uhura of old. This cover catches that spirit for certain.

12. I'm Dead Jim - April 21, 2010

When I look at that Burden of Knowledge cover, all I see is sexual tension, thanks to the new movie.

13. Mikey1091 - April 21, 2010

The one and only place I know of where I can even think of buying these is the Barnes and Noble Online Store. Then I have to wait a week for them to get their collective heads out of their butts to mail them to me, lol.

14. Rah - April 21, 2010

What the heck is the burden of HNOWLEDGE?
I get IDW comics one the Ipos Touch APP. Very good way to geek out.

15. ralf smith - April 21, 2010

they should do comics of 7 of 9 erotica!

16. antodav - April 21, 2010

#3: The Enterprise can’t even stay within the boundaries of the Federation and do that. Not likely to happen.

Those comic book images are gorgeous though. I wish they would release them on the iPhone app so I could download them and read them in my spare time.

17. Kirk's Revenge - April 21, 2010

#15

Take a cold shower.

18. Peter N - April 21, 2010

I kept waiting to see the review of the next issue of Captain’s Log so that I would be reminded to go out and buy it – nice to know I can look forward to two purchases over the next two weeks!

19. ryanhuyton - April 21, 2010

Enough with the Seven Of Nine sexual references already! Geeze!

Anyway, all these books look interesting. But they still can’t seem to get Captain Sisko’s face right for some reason.

The “Burden Of Knowledge” cover art is classic! Great job!

20. Simon - April 21, 2010

Where’s O’Brien in that DS9 cover??? He was there more often than Jake!

21. CarlG - April 21, 2010

@15: If you find the proper frame, I’m sure Ms. Ryan’s restraining order against you will look lovely on your wall.

22. nate - April 21, 2010

i like Messina and Byrne, but I need more Gordon Purcell art on TREK! He’s the best TREK artist of them all, and these various Italian artists aren’t doing very well. Their inking is the worst!
I’d also like to see more Trek books. 3 issues a month isn’t too much to ask!

23. Jane - April 21, 2010

6. BLASPHEMY!!!!!!!

I love that cover picture of Uhura! Wow, one of the best!

24. Khan was Framed! - April 21, 2010

#6 You are wrong!

No effort to prove my point, you are just wrong.

IDW shouldn’t have anything to do with the new movie anyway, there best off working in the REAL Trek universe.

(this is where the lame-o newbies will attack me, consider yourself saved)

25. dwnicolo - April 21, 2010

Walshy, Try using Westfield Comics a great mail order comics service. They carry Star Trek comics and merchandise.

26. Daoud - April 22, 2010

Excellent covers, and the one made me almost laugh until I polob’oltnopped.

@11 So, if only the Boborci would convince Saldaña to adopt one of Nichelle’s classic Uhura hairstyles for the sequel!!! That would be awesome, yes!
