On Wednesday IDW finishes up 2009 with one more Star Trek comic (see preview), but has much more planned in 2010. Today IDW released their solicitations for comics for March 2010, which includes three Star Trek comic issues, continuing their ongoing TNG, DS9 and ST09 series. We have synopses and cover art below.

Good to see they still make these!
I might get the movie adaptation. Maybe.
DEFINITELY getting the movie adaption when it comes out in collection form.
I love having regular STAR TREK but i just can’t keep buying comics for cost & space- i have to wait for the Trade Paperbacks.
Why cant they release the Trades the month after the final issue? why do they make us wait 3-6 months?
Wahhhhhhhh another whiny Trek bitch.
Cool..haven’t got a movie adapt since UC….have that whole series between FF and UC before wildstorm ..loved early adventures with Pike, didn’t get into Academy or Voyager….
Where’s the Voyager/Enterprise comics?! Those I would like… especially Enterprise!
DS9 comic for the WIN.
6. Agreed! I understand that VOY and ENT aren’t as popular as the other series, but there’s still a significant number of fans (myself included) that would love to seem them revisited.
What I’d really like to see, though, is an ongoing comic series based in the reboot universe. Since there’s such a long wait between films, it’d be nice to have a more regular glimpse at their adventures. Novels (and fanfiction, when it comes to that) are nice, but the more stories to tide us over, the better!
