To Boldly Read: A Look At The Current World of Star Trek Comics

There’s an argument that can be made that the last few years of the Star Trek fandom are some of its best or at least some of it’s most diverse. The year began with five ongoing shows streaming, sadly two were/ will be their last season and one was unexpectedly ended. But never fear Trek fans shows aren’t the only place you can fine a variety of new Trekkie goodness to fill your needs. IDW is bringing Trek comics back to the forefront with plenty of tales for fans of all generations with all of our favorite characters. Here’s a highlight of all the Trek books on shelves now/ coming soon.

For fans of Deep Space Nine:

For fans of Cross-overs:
Star Trek Day Of Blood— DAY OF BLOOD STARTS HERE! As emperor of the Klingon Empire, Kahless II has consolidated power, raided ancient tombs and secret bunkers, taken the power of gods for himself, stolen the Bajoran Orb of Destruction, and has begun a slaughter across the stars. But this genocide of gods was just the beginning. For with the power he has stolen, Kahless is about to declare war on all those who do not follow the Red Path. To prevent genocide unlike any since the ancient days of Qo’noS, the crew of icons led by the emissary known as Benjamin Sisko (Star Trek) and the renegades who follow a desperate and violent Worf (Star Trek: Defiant) must unite for a common cause. Only they can hope to stop the DAY OF BLOOD. Available Now

Star Trek Defiant— Someone is killing the gods. But Benjamin Sisko’s Prophets-guided dealings of the higher cosmos has led him to forget about the very real casualties on lower ground.

For fans of Picard’s history:
Star Trek Picards Academy— Before becoming the Federation’s finest, Jean-Luc was an ordinary student at Starfleet Academy with sights on the stars. His path forward was charted: blow his classmates out of the water on the infamous Evasive Maneuvers exam and graduate early. But there’s a detail Cadet Picard hadn’t factored into his plan: the exam was a group project and he’d need to make friends with, ugh, people if he stood a chance at passing. Federation starships aren’t run by a party of one, after all. Series Starts 9/13

Now you may find yourself saying “What about fans of Voyager?” and here is the fun part, technically Star Trek Ongoing AND Star Trek Defiant have characters from TOS, TNG, DS9 AND Voyager!!!! The writing is some of the best in Star Trek comics ever and the writers truly understand the characters from all those shows and their knowledge and love for the shows absolutely come through.
