See Worf Kick Off A New Series With Spock And A New Crew In Preview Of ‘Star Trek: Defiant’ #1

The third Trek comic released today launches a brand new series from IDW, a spinoff from their ongoing Star Trek flagship series. Calling it “The Dirty Dozen meets Star Trek” the series focuses on Worf leading a new crew on the USS Defiant. The Star Trek: Defiant series is written by Chris Cantwell (Iron Man, Namor, Star Wars: Obi-Wan) and drawn by Angel Unzueta (Iron Man, Star Wars: Poe Dameron, The Flash). We have a 5-page preview and all the covers for issue 1.

Star Trek: Defiant #1


Someone is killing the gods. But Benjamin Sisko’s Prophets-guided dealings of the higher cosmos has led him to forget about the very real casualties on lower ground. The enemy is a MAN, not a god. And Worf of House Martok has put together his own crew aboard the U.S.S. Defiant in hopes of defeating the dangerous messiah behind this genocidal cult.

Excellent artwork.

Nice twist that Ro has the original Bajoran nose ridges she debuted with (note the little ridge at the base of her forehead, separate from the nasal ones) rather than the DS9 ones.

Very excited to read this one on my lunch break!

The father-son duo that can never get a break.
