Following the end of the big Day of Blood crossover event IDW’s ongoing Star Trek series begins a new storyline this week titled “A Savage World of Glass and Bone.” Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing continue writing the series, with Marvel and DC artist Marcus To joining for the new arc.
At New York Comic Con earlier this month Collin Kelly spoke about how the new storyline will involve Sisko and his crew on a peacekeeping mission to prevent a third war with the Tzenkethi, a formidable foe that was mentioned but never seen on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Summing up Sisko’s challenge of finding peace Kelly said at NYCC “With the Tzenkethi being gigantic space dinosaurs, that might get a little rough.”
We have a 5-page preview of issue 13.
Star Trek #13
Captain Benjamin Sisko’s quest to defeat the killer of gods is at an end, and the Prophets beckon him home to the Celestial Temple. He’s earned his rest, but when Starfleet requests his help to stop a familiar foe, the Tzenkethi Coalition, from launching the largest fleet in their history, Sisko and the Theseus‘ crew set out once again to save the galaxy. But there’s a reason this species of spiritually rich, reptilian lizard birds has twice defeated Starfleet in battle. They’re xenophobic, ruthless, and innovative… and confronting them on their home turf, a planet thought to be an organism itself, is as good a death sentence as any.
Star Trek #13 arrives on Wednesday
