Over the weekend IDW Publishing announced it will continue to release new Star Trek tales with the launch of Star Trek: The Next Generation: Terra Incognita, a six-issue mini-series launching in 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, who have written previous Star Trek series for IDW will take on the writing duties for Star Trek: The Next Generation: Terra Incognita, with Tony Shasteen providing the art.
“We can’t thank the fans enough for the enormous response to Mirror Broken and Through the Mirror. 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,” said Editor Sarah Gaydos.
IDW Publishing has been focusing on the Mirror Universe lately, so the return to the Prime Universe of Star Trek should have a lot of fans excited to see what Picard and his crew are up to next.
