Star Trek: Countdown, the new Star Trek series of comics tied to Star Trek XI released a new promotional image featuring several characters.

As reported by IESB.net, in January, Star Trek: The Countdown debuts with issue #1 of the four-part series.

The series will "cover the origin of Nero, the mysterious Romulan who will ultimately threaten the survival of the whole universe." The time frame for the comics is in the Star Trek: The Next Generation era, after Star Trek: Nemesis. Main characters in the prequel will be Nero, elder Spock and possibly other familiar characters from the Next Generation timeframe.

The new promotional image shows (clockwise): Nero, Data, Jean-Luc Picard and original Spock. The poster style is reminiscent of last summer's Star Trek XI promotional releases which were given away last summer to Comic-con attendees.
