Interesting story. Looks great!

March 20, 2012 6:08 pm

Can’t wait to purchase these!

March 20, 2012 6:13 pm

Bravo! Thank you for telling a new story! Gotta figure this out. If it’s a four part series should I wait for the “graphic novel” or try to find a comic book store to buy each episode? Help me Barmes and Noble. ;-)

DEFINITELY looking forward to picking up issue 7 tomorrow!

Yeah, while the “Vulcan’s Vengeance'” looks great, I can’t get excited about yet another “Star Trek” story revolving around revenge. It’s been done to death already.

And I’ll still pass on the “Legion Of Superheroes/Star Trek” crossover. Too silly.

March 20, 2012 7:33 pm

Hmm… an alien with multiple faces.
Focus group thinking personified!

March 20, 2012 8:40 pm

@ #5: Revenge stories have definitely been done a lot, even in Trek, but this story still makes sense, at least. Losing their world could definitely be enough to skew some Vulcan’s logic into thinking “eye for an eye” is the proper course of action.

I wasn’t interested in the other issues that tried to redo old TOS episodes, but this makes me want to get this issue and the rest on this story.

“On Wednesday IDW releases the 7th issue…”

Wednesday, as in tomorrow!? Usually comes out later in the month, but no complaints! I’ll be running out to the geek store over lunch.

I think the art is VERY interesting, this time. Liked character drawings better in the last issue, but, yeah…, really kinda cool.

I can’t quite wrap my head around the alien with three faces, either.

Is Sybok among those ‘brothers’?

Panel one, Page One. “A Forgotten Tavern in a Forgotten corner of the Delta Quadrant”

OK, All hail the Vulcans and their superior Science but … the Delta Quadrant?

I know in TOS they used to throw around Quadrant/Sectors, etc – but these days, we still remember that even with NextGen tech levels it takes 70 years to get there (subtracting some slip stream drive and wormholes and Future Janeway).

So how are TOS era people there at all? Did the Death of the Narada created a wormhole? What gives? Is space altogether warped in this universe such that Delta Vega is frighteningly close to Vulcan (RIP) and the Delta Quadrant is right around the corner?

This is more a nitpick than big complaint. I am enjoying this Trek Ongoing.

Thanks to those that are bringing it, and giving us a bit of the movie universe as we wait to 2013 for the really big show.

March 20, 2012 9:48 pm

10 Considering this comic is being guided by the same guy who had Delta Vega within viewing distance of Vulcan, this shouldn’t come as a shock.

Delta Quadrant? Seriously, so it Slipstream drive the norm in the new universe this soon?

Delta quadrant. I am sure that Capt Janeway will be there soon.

March 21, 2012 10:44 am

Please, no more references to no-win scenarios or Kobayashi Maru in general Trek character conversation (or at all). Seriously, they gotta have something else to talk about by now…

March 21, 2012 10:49 am

PS. “zis doesn’t make any sense!'” comes in a close second on the list of things I’ve heard too many times.

I’ll still buy the comic, don’t get me wrong. ;)

March 21, 2012 10:53 am

interesting that the first new scene on the enterprise is of kirk and spock playing 3d chess. just like “where no man has gone before”. you may begin the gary mitchell speculation again in 3…2…1…go! ;)

#10–judge for yourself. In the 2009 movie, the warp speed was such that the Enterprise and the fleet got to Vulcan in a few minutes from Earth. something that i oldTrek took days. Yes, I’d say that some kind of reverse-engineered slipstream tech is in use by the Federation here. Also likely by all Federation-aligned races. That explains the Delta Quadrant thing. unless the vengeful Vulcans stumbled across a Borg transwarp conduit.

March 21, 2012 11:50 am

Or they could be using a different system centered on Sol…. so it would look like this:
Quadrants are so 2-dimensional anyways. I hoped Bob would have been more sly and used Octants.

He’s dead.

March 21, 2012 1:32 pm

oops. guess i didn’t read the previous 6 comics. my bad. carry on.

The superhero crossover has been PAINFULLY bad. This is such a terrible series.

March 21, 2012 2:14 pm

Not out today, but Next Wednesday :[

March 21, 2012 5:18 pm

they keep saying it will be released, and then on the day it’s supposed to come out they push it back a week. aggravating!

BobOrci, So how did this QUOCCH get from Rura Penthe to Delta Quadrant over 70 light years away

March 22, 2012 11:02 am

@ Nemesis was a great movie

Slipstream drive? We have warp drive around these parts.

March 22, 2012 11:18 am

@ 24 Paul Tigelau: Perhaps V’Ger is involved in how Quocch and the Vulcans reached to the Delta Quadrant, perhaps V’ger created a transwarp conduit which both Quocch and the Vulcans discovered and used.

March 22, 2012 12:21 pm

Okay, that’s the kind of shirtlessness I’m talkin’ about. Thanks, Legion crossover!

I agree. Bring on the shirtless James Kirk.

Are you getting this, Bob Orci?

March 22, 2012 10:54 pm

I think it’s an obvious error.

A “Delta Quadrant” tavern populated with Alpha Quadrant races?

Maybe the letterer had VOYAGER on the brain but it has to be Alpha Quadrant.

March 24, 2012 7:29 pm

Could you post a link to the trade paperback for Star Trek ongoing? I can’t find it.
