IDW To Launch Star Trek: Waypoint Series

With the 50th anniversary of Star Trek happening, IDW is kicking off a new series that will feature various Starfleet crews from the franchise’s history. The new series will feature creators like Donny Cates (The Paybacks, Interceptor), Mack Chater (The Fuse), and Sandra Lanz (Prophet) and more.

Cates and Chater will team on the lead story set during Star Trek: The Next Generation era which sees Geordi La Forge and Data put their scientific minds together to decipher a mysterious ship’s coded message. Their discovery may alter the course of scientific human history as we know it!

Lanz will write and illustrate the back up taking place during Star Trek: The Original Series and shines a spotlight on Uhura as she navigates a strange planet. Stranded, she attempts to make contact with a bizarre alien creature.

Star Trek: Waypoint will feature cover art by artists Marc Laming (Planet Hulk) and Mark Buckingham (Fables) and will be in stores this September.
