Star Trek Movie Universe To Be Ongoing Comic Book Series From IDW

At this rate, by September even we'll be rebooted.

While you wait for your Star Trek 2 fix, IDW will be bringing the continuing adventures of the revamped, reinvigorated, and rebooted Enterprise to comics. The goal of the new series is to "explore the vast implications of the alternate timeline created by the film in a new, monthly, ongoing comics series."

You can find the official press release below:

The adventures of the Starship Enterprise continue with the new cast from the film as they embark on missions that re-imagine the stories from the original television series, along with new threats and characters never seen before.

Under the creative direction of Orci, fan-favorite STAR TREK writer Mike Johnson and artist Stephen Molnar bring this alternate universe to life and begin the countdown to the highly anticipated Star Trek sequel. The series kicks off with a dramatic new envisioning of The Original Series second pilot, “Where No Man Has Gone Before.”

“Finally, new STAR TREK comics that showcase the new Enterprise crew,” said editor Scott Dunbier. “The only thing more fun than reading them is editing them!”

STAR TREK #1 will feature covers from Tim Bradstreet and David Messina, plus four rare photo covers. Readers are encouraged to talk to their local retailer about the photo covers, and the super rare STAR TREK #1 signed by Orci and Johnson. The debut issue will also feature a golden ticket promotion, with more details to come shortly from IDW.

Star Trek will be on shelves beginning in September.
