IDW Publishing has announced a new Mirror Universe comic series, this time set in the prime universe.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Terra Incognita will make its debut this August.
“This six-issue miniseries reveals unique, focused stories where beloved characters find themselves in new, unfamiliar situations, in a format echoing the ‘done-in-one’ nature of the television series. However, each issue also features a subtle throughline of an evil Mirror Universe crewmember established in the Mirror Broken and Through the Mirror series remaining on the ship, wreaking havoc while posing as his prime universe counterpart. Featuring the best of both the Mirror and original universes, Terra Incognita is a unique new step in this riveting saga.”
Scott and David Tipton will write the series, and the art will be provided by Tony Shasteen.
“We can’t thank the fans enough for the enormous response to Mirror Broken and Through the Mirror,” said editor Sara Gaydos. “Clearly, the love of Picard and the entire Enterprise crew runs deep, and who are we to deny fans what they want?! This epic team-up of Scott and David Tipton plus artist Tony Shasteen is a true all-star roster of Star Trek comics talent.”
“As much as I love all iterations of Star Trek, getting to write for The Next Generation always feels like coming home,” said Scott Tipton. “And getting to continue the work we’ve been doing with the Mirror Universe is an unexpected bonus.”
“We hope to bring Trek fans brand-new TNG tales that feel like episodes they somehow missed on television, along with a few shocking surprises,” said David Tipton.
