IDW Announces New Star Trek Anthology Series Starting in September
With the release of Star Trek Beyond and a new TV show to look forward to, Star Trek's 50th anniversary year is already shaping up to be a big one for fans of the franchise. Joining in on festivities is IDW Publishing, who have just announced that they will be releasing a brand new Star Trek comicbook anthology entitled Star Trek: Waypoint.

Starting in September, Waypoint will feature six bi-monthly issues that span every major era of the Star Trek franchise. From James T. Kirk to Jonathan Archer, and everything in between, Waypoint looks set to serve as the perfect whistle-stop tour of 50 years of Star Trek storytelling.

The lead story will focus on some of The Next Generation era's most popular stars as Geordi La Forge and Data are tasked with investigating a cryptic message from a strange ship. Unbeknownst to them, though, their work could have far-reaching consequences and might even alter the course of humanity's scientific destiny.



Sandra Lanz will write the back-up story, which takes us to the Original series timeline, focusing on Uhura as she finds herself stranded on an alien planet. Her only hope to get off the planet is to make contact with one of its bizarre native creatures.


Can't wait for Waypoint to come out? Head over to https://supplypod.outerplaces.com to check out their 'Warp Speed' mystery box, which features an exclusive Star Trek variant cover from IDW artist, Tony Shasteen.
