Today IDW releases three new Trek comics, including continuing their ongoing flagship Star Trek series with the fifth issue, continuing the adventures of Captain Benjamin Sisko after his return from the Bajoran Wormhole on a mission from the gods. 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).
The fifth issue starts off with Sisko and the crew of the USS Theseus battling Kahless in the “God City” of T’Kon. We have a 5-page preview of issue 5.
Star Trek #5
A fight for the fate of the universe has broken out in the God City. Up against an enemy ship that easily cracks the Theseus’ shields, the crew staves off enemy interlopers while the Orb of Destruction powers up with the Theseus in its scope. Already facing the impossible, the crew makes a shocking discovery that tests their faith in the mission and each other.
Star Trek arrives on Wednesday
Star Trek #5 arrives on March 15. You can order issue 5 or upcoming issues at TFAW. Or pick up individual digital editions at Amazon/comiXology.

The artwork is quite hit and miss in these comics for me. Once again, they chose the worst design for the “A” cover, while the C variant looks stunning and reminds me of the beautiful painted artwork Pocket Books used to have before they went for cheap looking Photoshop dross.
