See Sisko Return To Qo’noS On The Hunt For Kahless In Preview Of ‘Star Trek: Day of Blood’ #1

After all the preludes the main event arrives this week with Star Trek: Day of Blood #1 which is Part One of the Day of Blood summer crossover event bringing together the two ongoing series: Star Trek and Star Trek: Defiant. It is written by Jackson Lanzing & Collin Kelly and Christopher Cantwell with art by Ramon Rosanas.

Star Trek: Day of Blood #1


DAY OF BLOOD STARTS HERE! As emperor of the Klingon Empire, Kahless II has consolidated power, raided ancient tombs and secret bunkers, taken the power of gods for himself, stolen the Bajoran Orb of Destruction, and has begun a slaughter across the stars. But this genocide of gods was just the beginning. For with the power he has stolen, Kahless is about to declare war on all those who do not follow the Red Path. To prevent genocide unlike any since the ancient days of Qo’noS, the crew of icons led by the emissary known as Benjamin Sisko (Star Trek) and the renegades who follow a desperate and violent Worf (Star Trek: Defiant) must unite for a common cause. Only they can hope to stop the DAY OF BLOOD.

Uh oh… someone flipped the klingon logo….

Maybe it’s the Mirror Universe? I know…that’s a reach.

I’m waiting for the tpb edition. I am intrigued by stories from the post-nemesis world.

I don’t think they actually watched the episode with Kahless. He was more priest than warrior. And he got name dropped in DS9 as opposing Gowron’s invasion of Cardassian space.

And he wasn’t much of a fighter even when he did try.

This whole series is just bonkers
