See Worf Begin The Search For Hugh In Preview Of ‘Star Trek: Defiant’ #9

Tomorrow the ongoing Star Trek: Defiant series from IDW continues the new “Another Piece of the Action” arc described at IDW’s recent NYCC Trek comics panel as inspired by Mission: Impossible with Worf leading a “disavowed” team of off-the-books agents.  The Defiant series is written by Chris Cantwell (Iron Man, Namor, Star Wars: Obi-Wan) with art by Mike Feehan (Star Trek, DC’s Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles). We have a preview and the covers for issue 9.

Disavowed from Starfleet despite their heroic actions, Worf and his crew set out in their new roles as bounty hunters on their first mission since the bloody battle against the tyrant Kahless. Their first target: an individualized ex-member of the Borg Collective known as Hugh.

Uugghh I still can’t take the idea Spock taking orders from Worf. Even if it’s not canon.

Yup, that just does NOT compute.

That was an odd thing to see in the preview. I was hoping it would feel more naturally in-context, but I haven’t read it all yet.

Should just make more official canon comics and books and ditch these weird attempts at making trek stories. They could still do canon stories in this time period without them having to be always acknowledged on the mainstream TV shows.

Why bother looking for Hugh? We know where that ends.
