Star Trek fans will have three new Star Trek comics to enjoy this July courtesy of IDW Publishing.

The titles include Star Trek Volume 2, Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 #3 and Star Trek #11 (The Truth about Tribbles, Part 1).

Star Trek Volume 2, written by Mike Johnson with art by Joe Corroney and a cover by Tim Bradstreet, is the re-imagining of the original series episode Operation Annihilate.

Overseen by Star Trek XI‘s Roberto Orci, Star Trek Volume 2 is 104 pages in length and will sell for $17.99.

Next up is Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 #3, written by Scott and David Tipton with Tony Lee, with artwork by J.K. Woodward and covers by Woodward and Elena Casagrande. In this issue of the Trek/Who crossover, “Captain Picard and Doctor Who attempting to agree upon the best course of action now that the true horror of the Borg-Cybermen alliance has been revealed. Also in question: will the Doctor’s recently resurfaced memories shed fresh light on the situation?”

Thirty-two pages in length, Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation 2 #3 will sell for $3.99. Look for a rare black-and-white variant cover.

The last IDW Publishing Star Trek comic for July is Star Trek #11. Written by Mike Johnson, with art by Claudia Balboni and a cover by Tim Bradstreet, the new Enterprise crew “makes the acquaintance of everyone’s favorite cuddly, ravenously hungry, Klingon-hating alien creatures.”

Also overseen by Roberto Orci, Star Trek #11 is thirty-two pages in length and will sell for $3.99. Variant covers include a photo cover and a sketch cover created by Tim Bradstreet.

    What’s with all these lame “J.J.-verse” Star Trek titles being released? Let’s stick with the Original Series and Next Generation stories, please.

    Looking forward to the JJVerse Star Trek titles…

    While I agree they are fairly lame, they are about par for Trek comics in general, and it is perfectly logical to release products that tie in to a recent and highly successful Trek film. Or would you rather have Nemesis-branded hair restorative creme?

    Why not NEW stories in the alternate universe instead of re-treads of TOS which did it better?

  • Kang the Unbalanced

    I’d love to see that. Perhaps someday…
