IDW Publishing is taking the battle to the Mirror Universe in Star Trek: The Mirror War, a year long comic book event that kicks off on Star Trek Day.
IDW Publishing has tapped Scott and David Tipton to bring the concept to life, and we’ll see the first steps into the even in Star Trek: The Mirror War #0 that arrives on September 8th.
Following September’s #0 launch, the series will continue to build year-long tension with issues #1-8 and four interspersed tie-in specials, each highlighting a different member of the Next Generation cast. The first spin-off one-shot, slated for December, will focus on Data. Once complete, the 13-part saga will chart Mirror Picard’s path of conquest across all of the Mirror Universe, stoking the wrath of the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance along the way.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to return to the Mirror Universe,” said Scott Tipton in a press release. “What’s in store for our Mirror Jean-Luc Picard and his Enterprise crew? New faces, new places, and old grudges. Picard’s ambitions are grander than ever, and nothing short of the throne itself will satisfy him!”
“In The Mirror War, we’ll be seeing what happens when Picard gets hold of information that can change the fortunes of the debilitated Terran Empire,” said David Tipton. “The Enterprise crew will find themselves in positions of potential power and wealth like never before.”
