The first Star Trek: Deep Space Nine comic will debut this December.
More details are emerging about the new Deep Space Nine comic courtesy of Scott and David Tipton, such as in which time frame the stories will be set and which characters who will be appearing in the new series .
The new Deep Space Nine stories will be set in familiar territory. “Our mandate from the ‘Powers That Be’ was to tell a classic Deep Space Nine story to reintroduce the series to comics readers,” explained Scott Tipton. “Setting it after the series ended didn’t make a lot of sense, since half the cast would by definition be taken off the table immediately. Our story is set between seasons three and four, before Worf’s arrival to the station and before things start to heat up with the Dominion War. It’s kind of the last point where there’s breathing space before the series got really serialized in its final four seasons.”
