See What Happened After Kid Kirk’s Corvette Joyride In Star Trek Ongoing Comic #5 Preview

The next issue (#5) of the new ongoing Star Trek comic series set in the new movie universe arrives tomorrow. #5 begins a new two-issue storyline which will retell the TOS episode "Operation: annihilate!" in the new movie universe and you can check out the first seven pages below.


What happened next?

As you remember from the 2009 Star Trek movie (and seen in the trailer below), the young James Tiberius Kirk was seen joyriding a Corvette and being chased by a cop. But what happened next? Well the next issue of the ongoing Star Trek comics (due in stores tomorrow) opens with a flashback to the Corvette aftermath. We get a glimpse of the Kirk farm in Iowa, and the designs used come from a deleted scene in the film.
