Fans waiting for Star Trek #7 and Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes #6 to go on sale tomorrow can see a preview of both issues today.

In Star Trek #7, “The adventures of the new crew of the Enterprise continue in this all new two-part story that takes place soon after the events of the last film! While Vulcans struggle to survive in the wake of their homeworld’s destruction at the hands of rogue Romulans, and some Vulcans believe that the logical response can be summed up in one word: revenge!”

Star Trek #7, written by Mike Johnson, with art by Joe Corroney and cover by Tim Bradstreet, is thirty-two pages long and will sell for $3.99.

In Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes #6, “It’s all been building up to this. Captain Kirk, Cosmic Boy, and the rest of the timelost Legionnaires and Starfleet officers have reached the end of the line, and are confronted with the powerful forces which have unwritten their respective histories. But with half of their teams stranded in the past and the other half held prisoner in the future, what chance do they have of overcoming the odds and restoring the worlds they once knew?”

Thirty-two pages in length, Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes #6 was written by Chris Roberson, with art by Jeffrey Moy and Philip Moy, with covers by Phil Jimenez and Jeffrey Moy. The comic will sell for $3.99.

The four thumbnails below include two from Star Trek #7 (the first two thumbnails) and two from In Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes #6 (the last two thumbnails). Click on each thumbnail to enlarge.

    1) “…some Vulcans believe that the logical response can be summed up in one word: revenge!”

    No they do not. Vulcans have stated time and again (most recently Sarek in JJTrek) that revenge is not logical– revenge is a purely emotional reaction. A better approach would have been:

    “…some Vulcans abandon logic for an earlier, more primal Vulcan tradition: revenge!”

    2) But this means dick-all anyway, because going by those preview pages, the writer hasn’t got a fucking clue what Vulcans would do or say or think.

    Vulcan’s may not technically believe in revenge but with their planets destruction not every single Vulcan is going to go with the logic of forgiveness. Blowing up planets is just too big of a crime and destruction even for Vulcan’s who despite their denials are more emotional than humans as Troi once said in Next Generation.

    Revenge at times is a logical thing to do.

    I don’t know… it’s tricky, and hard to pull off. It’s easier to say “screw logic, respond emotionally” than to try and logically justify revenge. Especially when it’s so clearly one madman (or mad crew), from the future and having no ties to the existing Romulan empire committing the act, and they are dead. How can exacting vengeance on a civilization for the acts of a few who are already dead be logical?
    I realize I just unintentionally drew a parallel to the entire Afghan war here. OK, the idea could have some potential, if explored well. Have these Vulcans found a way to justify their actions logically? Are they just, well, lying and acting emotionally after all?
    An intruiging, and logical, possibility is that they are not replicating the Narada to destroy Romulus, but to simply kill Nero’s ancestors. That would be far more logical. (And, in an older Trek time-travel paradigm, would repair the timeline causing Vulcan to pop back into existence, along with a very confused future-Spock.)
    But, those preview pages don’t reassure me. Those Vulcans don’t act very logically.
    Maybe the blurb from the publisher is just wrong?
