When offered the project, the Tiptons didn’t hesitate to say yes. “…when [editor] Denton J. Tipton and [Editor-in-Chief] Chris Ryall from IDW came to us and asked if we had any ideas for a meeting between the two biggest and best science-fiction franchises of all time, what else could we say? We absolutely leapt at the chance,” said Scott. “Just a look at my resume tells you how big a Star Trek fan I am, but I’ve been watching Doctor Who all my life, as well. And the revived Doctor Who of the last few years has been, at least for my money, consistently the best drama on television.”

Tipton: Creating Trek Comics

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

When Scott Tipton learned that IDW Publishing had a license to create Star Trek-related material, he was eager to get in on writing comics featuring characters he enjoyed, and wasted no time suggesting ideas in hopes of getting a Star Trek assignment.

One of the ideas was for a Klingon series, and that resulted in Klingons: Blood Will Tell, of which Tipton is still proud. “I’m happy to say that I think Klingons: Blood Will Tell holds up really well these four or so years later,” he said. “I glanced through it for the first time in years when it was recently re-released in IDW’s Star Trek Omnibus, and I was pleased to see that I was overall very satisfied with it.”

Tiptons Talk Deep Space Nine Comic

Monday, October 12th, 2009

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.”
