See Sisko Fight To Stop A War In Preview Of ‘Star Trek’ #18

This week IDW’s ongoing Star Trek series wraps up the “A Savage World of Glass and Bone” storyline, with Captain Sisko and the crew of the Theseus trying to stop a war with the space dinosaur Tzenkethi… and their Romulan friends. Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing co-write the series with art by Marcus To. We have covers and a preview of issue 18.

Star Trek #18


Tzenketh is on the brink of war against the Federation… and it’s all the fault of Captain Sisko and his crew. A battle between the Tzenkethi, Romulans, and Cardassians is imminent, while Tzenketh itself begins to tremble. The Theseus crew’s actions have exacerbated the volcanic instability of the planet-another thing the Romulans will undoubtedly pin on the Federation. The Romulan Magistrex’s plot to build an alliance that will destroy the Federation is underway, can Sisko and his crew manage to save this savage world of glass and bone? Find out in the finale of arc three of the Eisner-nominated series!

Is Kim in S31?

So what exactly is IDW’s hiring policy for writers? Submit the worst fan-fiction you can think of?

I gave up after 3 issues. All these comics have is nostalgia wank and continuity references. And a non-binary Vulcan with hipster hair. I miss the glory days of the early 90’s DC comics. Never know what you have until it’s gone.

Sounds a lot just like that mythical Star Trek Legacy show that will never exist
