September will be a busy month when it comes to Star Trek comics.

IDW Publishing has announced its Star Trek comics for September 2012 and five different titles will be offered for eager Trek comic fans.

The titles include: Star Trek #13 The Redshirt’s Tale, Star Trek: Romulans Treasury Edition, Star Trek: The Next Generation Hive #1, Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 #5, and Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who: Assimilation2, Vol. 1.

In Star Trek #13 The Redshirt’s Tale, the story is told from the point of view of a redshirt on the Enterprise. Written by Mike Johnson, Star Trek #13 features art by Stephen Molnar and a cover by Tim Bradstreet. There will be variant covers, and Star Trek #13 will run thirty-two pages in length and cost #$3.99.

Next up will be Star Trek: Romulans Treasury Edition, which features three original series stories featuring the best aliens in the Trekverse. Written by and featuring art and cover by John Byrne, Star Trek: Romulans Treasury Edition will run seventy-two pages in length and sell for $9.99.

The Borg return in Star Trek: The Next Generation Hive #1, the first part of a four-part mini-series. In Hive #1, the Borg and their king, Locutus, have assimilated the entire galaxy. The only hope for a non-Borg future can be found in the past, courtesy of Captain Picard and crew.
