See Worf Battle His Own Doubts In ‘Star Trek: Defiant’ #12 Preview

This week the ongoing Star Trek: Defiant series from IDW starts up the new sci-fi horror “Hell is only a Word” arc. The Defiant series is written by Chris Cantwell  with art by Ángel Unzueta. We have a preview and the covers for issue 12.

Star Trek: Defiant #12


Eager to move past the unofficial bounty-hunting mission assigned to them by Starfleet, disgraced former ambassador and Starfleet legend, Worf, and his rogue crew make way for Starbase 99, a run-down remnant of the Dominion War, to complete their fugitive drop-off. The clandestine assignment has left them disillusioned with Starfleet and with one another, but a surprise awaits the Defiant crew, threatening to tear the crew apart even further-literally.
