One of the biggest questions fans have about the new Star Trek movie is "what was Nero doing for 25 years?" The time between the attack on the USS Kelvin and the arrival of Spock and the Jellyfish is left blank. IDW Editor Scott Dunbier describes how "Star Trek Nero" will fill in gap:

Nero, the great villain of the movie, was actually introduced in Star Trek: Countdown, which leads directly into the film. This follow-up series will reveal exactly what happened to the crew of the Narada during the intervening 25 years Nero was waiting for the arrival of Ambassador Spock.

TrekMovie has already reported that there were scenes shot that covered this 25 year gap, where Nero and his crew were captured by Klingons and put in the Rura Penthe prison, however they were cut from the final film. TrekMovie has confirmed with "Star Trek Nero" co-writer Tim Jones that they are using the shooting script which included these scenes as their basis and that artist David Messina will be using some of the deleted scenes as a visual reference, but that the comic book will also go beyond just what is in the deleted scenes (which will be on the DVD and Blu-ray versions in the Fall).
