trekyear4cover.jpg Just like Buffy Season 8, fans of the original Star Trek series never got their five year mission. Well IDW Publishing plans to continue the mission to seek out new life and new civilizations in Star Trek: Year Four.

The series will present an entire self-contained “episode” in every issue. The debut issue begins when the crew discovers a multi-planet construct of a dead civilization, which is run by a brilliant genetic scientist who’s obsessed with repopulating it. When Captain Kirk discovers the scientist’s secret, his creations revolt, forcing Kirk to make the hard decision to push the Enterprise into crossfire.

Star Trek: Year Four is written by David Tischman, with art by Steve Conley. The 32-page first issue of a six-issue miniseries debuts July 2007.
