It’s amazing how many LGBT people are on Star Trek now. Love it.

Yeah, but unfortunately, the cover is missing the very first one: Jadzia Dax.

The cover is “missing” a character that doesn’t seem to be appearing in the comic? I don’t think it’s a problem NOT to falsely advertise her appearance. I’m hopeful they’ll do more of these in the future and include her.

Great art all around! Looking forward to it.

I know I shouldn’t be objectifying shirtless cartoon Sulu, but holy.

Yeah, they made him look ripped.

George looked like that in the original ep ‘naked time’

One can appreciate without objectification. We know he’s a upstanding officer and husband, he can be fit as well ;)

Happy birthday to O G ‘hikaru sulu’

So excited for this I preordered the regular cover and the variant with Mariner and Jennifer! I hope they do this again next year. I love the DC Pride collection that comes out every year and the Star Wars Pride covers… Love to see Trek continue to expand this kind of anthology and include more characters as well (like Jadzia Dax.)
