Preview: The Enterprise Crew Fights For Una In ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – The Illyrian Enigma’ #2

This week IDW continues their first tie-in to the Paramount+ series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Titled The Illyrian Enigma, the new four-issue miniseries is set after the events of the season 1 finale and before the upcoming second season. It’s written by Strange New Worlds co-executive producer Kirsten Beyer, teaming up again with Trek comics veteran Mike Johnson (Picard-Stargazer, Discovery-Adventures in the 32nd Century, Light of Kahless). Art for the new miniseries is being done by Megan Levens (Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Trek: The Mirror War-Troi). We have a five-page preview of issue 2 and all four covers.
