Tomorrow IDW continues their Star Trek: Year Five series, with the first of another two-issue storyline, promising the return of Harry Mudd. TrekMovie will have a full review of the comic soon, but for today you can check out a preview of the first five pages.
Synopsis for Star Trek: Year Five #15:
The final voyages of the U.S.S. Enterprise continue with the amazing crew of writer Jody Houser (Stranger Things, Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy) and artist Silvia Califano (The X-Files: Case Files)!
With the Klingon threat behind them, the crew of the Enterprise begins their victory tour of the original planets of the Federation. But they’ll soon discover that for all of the danger they faced on the five-year mission, the biggest threat of all may be something closer to home.
The 32-page Star Trek: Year Five #15 will be available on Wednesday, October 28th. You can pre-order the comic, discounted at TFAW for $3.19.
The two-episode arc wraps up in November with issue #16. Here is the synopsis and retailer incentive cover.
Election season is in full swing across the Federation, and even though it seems ridiculous, Harry Mudd is rising to the top of the polls! The crew of the Enterprise suspects that there’s more to Mudd’s game than just wanting to do his civic duty, and their investigation will uncover a rot that threatens the entire Federation from the inside.
You can catch up on the series with the most recent trade paperback Star Trek: Year Five Vol. 2: The Wine-Dark Deep which collects issues 7-12. It was released in July and is available on Amazon for $15.69.

Sure hope they’re going to fix the typo on that variant cover, “Impirial”
Thankfully my editor caught it. Printed version is corrected 👍
This comic has political undertones but I like it. Harry Mudd and Donald Trump are twins. Two sides of the same coin.
Please guys get out and VOTE okay. VOTE like you can’t live without it.
Whatever side of the political spectrum you are on. Your right to vote is the beating heart of American democracy.
Election day is one week away. Let your voice be heard.
Done, and done. Please stop the commercials and junk mail now.
Give me a break, you Terran boy.
Yeah, you’ve got a choice in this election, then: Harry Mudd or John Gill. Take your pick.
It’s not even a choice. Harry Mudd.
A rare, really good example of a good Star Trek comic.
Oh, give me a frickin’ break.
Another great issue. Interesting to go with Rainn Wilson Mudd and how it affects his voice in your head. The parallels with the current presidential race may be overstated and intended to drum up a bit of controversy but then it’s not as if TOS was unafraid to challenge the status quo. My main criticism is that the cover is bit of a sausage fest and the story inside could have been a good opportunity to feature Rand as part of Kirk’s diplomatic party. She’s part of the crew in TMP, I wish they would do something with her.
