This week IDW kicks off their ambitious new ongoing series simply titled Star Trek. Set in between the series finale of Voyager and the feature film Star Trek: Nemesis, the new Star Trek comic brings back Deep Space Nine’s Benjamin Sisko. He has a new ship and leads an all-star team on a mission from the Prophets. The series is written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, the leads behind IDW’s Star Trek: Year Five series, with art by Ramon Rosanas (Marvel’s Star Wars, Ant-Man). Each issue also includes a number of bonus covers with various artists.
Our recent interview with the writers offered more detail on their plans for the series and how it will tie into both legacy Star Trek and the new Star Trek shows. And today we have a 5-page preview of the first issue.
Star Trek #1
Star Trek #1 weaves an epic and unprecedented adventure story that spans the far reaches of the Star Trek multiverse, bringing together characters from across the galaxy—and all eras and variations of the beloved franchise—who must band together to prevent the mysterious murder of the gods.
It’s stardate 2378, and Benjamin Sisko has finally returned from the Bajoran Wormhole omnipotent. But his godhood is failing with every minute. Sent by the Prophets on a mission to the deepest parts of space aboard the U.S.S. Theseus, he witnesses the unthinkable: Someone is killing the gods. And only Sisko and his motley crew of Starfleet members from every era of Trek can stop them.
