Following yesterday’s announcement of a new young Picard one-shot, IDW used the second day of New York Comic Con to announce an expansive Star Trek crossover mini-series coming in 2019, all tied together by that fan-favorite character Q.
Kirk crosses paths with Picard, Sisko, and Janeway in Star Trek: The Q Conflict
For the first time ever, the crews of Star Trek: The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager will come together in a single crossover comic. IDW has announced Star Trek: The Q Conflict, a six-episode series debuting in January 2019.
Here is the official synopsis:
When a dispute between godlike beings threatens the galaxy, it will take all of Starfleet’s best captains to stop them. James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Kathryn Janeway, and Benjamin Sisko must go head-to-head in a competition rigged by the arrogant Q and his nigh-omnipotent cohorts.
The series is being written by the team of Scott and David Tipton (Star Trek: The Next Generation – Mirror Broken) and for the art, IDW has brought back David Messina (Cloak and Dagger, Star Trek: Countdown). Star Trek: The Q Conflict will be available with multiple covers: connecting regular covers by David Messina, and retailer incentive variants by George Caltsoudas and J.K. Woodward.
“This is it – the biggest Star Trek series ever, spanning starships, centuries, and galaxies!” says Scott Tipton in a statement. “All of Starfleet’s most legendary officers join together for the first time against some of the greatest threats they’ve ever faced. It’s like nothing you’ve seen before!”
David Tipton adds, “But it wouldn’t be Star Trek if it wasn’t also about character, and with so many Starfleet legends crossing paths for the first time ever, The Q Conflict will give readers the opportunity to see all their favorite characters in a brand-new light.”
“Being at work on Star Trek: The Q Conflict is like coming home after a five-year mission away,” says David Messina. “To draw characters like Spock and Picard at a time that’s so exciting for the Star Trek franchise? It’s awesome.”
