The Sisko Enters The Realm Of The Gods In Preview Of ‘Star Trek’ #21

This week IDW’s ongoing Star Trek series hits the halfway mark of the 6-issue “Pleroma” storyline which delves into the issues of divinity that have arisen since Sisko’s return from the celestial temple. Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing co-write the series with art by Megan Levens (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Starsigns). We have covers and a preview of issue 21

Star Trek #21


Welcome to the Pleroma, a place outside time and space where god-level species have gathered to discuss the fate of the universe! It’s up to Captain Sisko and his valiant crew of the U.S.S. Theseus to persuade the gods to allow them to help repair Kahless’ unraveling of space-time-but will they listen to mere mortals responsible for their prophesied undoing?

Star Trek annual coming in July

The 2024 annual issue of the Star Trek series arrives on July 3. You can pre-order the digital edition at Amazon/comiXology. Here is the synopsis and cover:

With no one but himself to blame for his brother’s sudden escape during the Klingon Day of Blood, Lieutenant Commander Data sheds his Starfleet uniform for an ensemble inspired by none other than Sherlock Holmes to track down Lore’s whereabouts… and figure out what sinister plans he’s been scheming. With the one and only Miles O’Brien as his Watson at his side, there is no mystery that Detective Data can’t solve!

That Data cover looks pretty wild. I’m assuming that’s Lore in the background.

Those comics are so bad fanfic for Star Trek. Nearly as bad as Acolyte is for Star Wars.

The writers need replaced. I’m nostalgic for the old DC comics from the late 80’s/early 90’s, they were really well done.

Meh. Doesn’t really appeal to me personally.
