See Ro Laren Face A Kobayashi Maru On The Klingon Homeworld In Preview Of ‘Star Trek’ #11

Tomorrow IDW continues the summer Day of Blood summer crossover event with Chapter 3, with the release of the 11th issue of the ongoing Star Trek series. The series is written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, the leads behind IDW’s Star Trek: Year Five series, with art by Mike Feehan (Marvel’s Star WarsAnt-Man). We have a 5-page preview of issue 11.

Star Trek #11


‘Day of Blood,’ Chapter Three! Only emissary Sisko and his crew of Starfleet’s finest and disgraced ambassador Worf and his band of insurgents can save the universe. But they are divided in every sense of the word. In space, Lieutenants Paris and Torres fight over control of the Defiant while Spock and Scotty do everything they can to keep the Theseus from being cleaved in two. On the ground, Ro and Sela have given up hope, and siblings Data and Lore can’t see eye to eye-all while their captains resist the urge to tear each other apart. Can they defeat Kahless and his Red Path when they cannot overcome their own differences?

….do you blink?
That’s probably the best definition I’ve seen of the objective of the Kobyashi Maru…

How about “It’s a test of character.” ?

Thank you for not calling this “the first Star Trek comics crossover,” which so many websites keep inaccurately calling it. It’s good stuff, but it’s definitely not the first.

websites are inaccurately saying that because the creators have said it *facepalm*

And why is Ro still identifying as Maquis? They were wiped out long ago…and wipe your nose for Glob sake

I noticed that, too. I wish the writers and editors and PR people who get that right. Every time I see one of them claiming this is the first crossover comic I can’t help but laugh. it’s far from the first. It’s not even the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth.

right…Trek has crossed over with Planet of the Apes and Transformers for goodness sake….it’s certainly far from the first in-universe instance…the marketing folks must have gotten hold of Akiva’s canon-bending machine… ;)

Has anyone been reading these? I started with issue 1, but I found the whole Kahless god killer thing just weird and not at all compelling. Have they gotten better?

They’ve gotten better, yeah. It’s not one of IDW’s best stories, but it’s fun. Frankly, though, I preferred the comics from the first five or six yeas of IDW’s Star Trek.

I’ve been enjoying the main title. ‘Defiant’ has just felt all off in terms of characterization, so I dropped it after a couple of issues.

Yeah, Defiant isn’t working so well for me either. As for Day of Blood, it’s more like Day of Dud. The DC, Malibu, and Marvel crossovers were all better than this.
