A new Star Trek anthology comic series will be of interest to fans of all of the different Trek eras.
Star Trek Waypoint will make its debut in September.
In the first issue of the series, which will be bi-monthly, two stories will be told; one from the original series and one from The Next Generation.
The original series story, Daylily, will be an Uhura story, written by and illustrated by Sandra Lanz. In Daylily, a crewmember “stranded on a strange planet encounters a bizarre alien creature. They must learn to interact, but how?”
The story from The Next Generation stars Data and Geordi, and is written by Donny Cates, and features art by Mark Chater. In this story, “unable to decipher a mysterious ship’s coded messages, Starfleet has enlisted its two greatest scientific minds, Captain Geordi La Forge and his best friend Data, to investigate. What they discover will alter the course of scientific human history as we know it!”
Star Trek Waypoint is expected to run for at least six issues. IDW Publishing editor Sarah Gaydos left the door open for more than six issues, saying she “really, really want this series to be evergreen, so we can keep telling new stories in the Trek-verse.”
