IDW is proud to announce a bold new direction in Star Trek comics, beginning with a brand-new flagship ongoing series that goes where no one has gone before! Debuting in October 2022, STAR TREK #1 features art by Ramon Rosanas ( Marvel’s Star Wars, Ant-Man ), and scripts by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing , the creative team behind Star Trek: Year Five .

STAR TREK #1 weaves an epic and unprecedented adventure story that spans the far reaches of the Star Trek multiverse, bringing together characters from across the galaxy — and all eras and variations of the beloved franchise — who must band together to prevent the mysterious murder of the gods.

Its stardate 2378, and Benjamin Sisko has finally returned from the Bajoran Wormhole omnipotent. But his godhood is failing with every minute. Sent by the Prophets on a mission to the deepest parts of space aboard the U.S.S. Theseus , he witnesses the unthinkable: Someone is killing the gods. And only Sisko and his motley crew of Starfleet members from every era of Trek can stop them.

“As a child, I watched reruns of the classic Star Trek series endlessly – until Next Generation, Voyager , and Deep Space Nine came along!” Rosanas enthuses. “After that, I didn’t miss a single episode of those three series’ each week. Gene Roddenberry is History with a capital H and his legacy is unstoppable. Having an opportunity to bring my passion and creativity to this franchise is incredibly exciting for me.”

“Benjamin Sisko is back!” Lanzing says. “We’re immeasurably thrilled to launch a new starship with a crew of new and familiar faces heading on a mission that will truly go where no one has gone before — an Avengers -style ongoing crossover that treats Gene Roddenberry’s creation as a living universe. This is a book where anyone can show up and where anything is possible.”

“Dreams of an optimistic, utopian future of cooperation and equality are more important now than ever,” says Kelly. “We’re both excited to continue the stories that have meant so much to us in the past and to welcome new readers to Starfleet. This is a grand adventure, one that weaves together elements from every Star Trek series to tell a new, vital, and forward-thinking sci-fi saga.”

“ Star Trek has always been about telling stories of a better future,” says editor Heather Antos, “of hope for humanity. Something this world needs now more than ever before. And what Jackson, Collin, and Ramon are doing with this series is bigger. Bigger and bolder than any Star Trek series has gone before.”

STAR TREK #1 will be available in October with eight variant covers for fans and retailers to enjoy, including Cover A by series artist Ramon Rosanas, Cover B by Declan Shalvey, Cover C by David Aja (TBC), Cover D by Rachael Stott, and a sketch Cover E, as well as three additional retailer incentive covers by Rosanas and Francesco Francavilla.

Sisko and Data return in a new Star Trek 'Avengers' ongoing series from IDW

Star Trek gets a new flagship comic starting in October

Star Trek #1

IDW has announced a new flagship Star Trek series to debut in October, co-written by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing, and illustrated by Ramon Rosanas. September's Star Trek #400 anthology will feature a prelude to the new ongoing by the same creative team.

Based in stardate 2378, the new Star Trek will follow the omnipotent Benjamin Sisko upon his return from the Bajoran Wormhole. Unfortunately, his own godhood is failing – and the rest of the gods from the Star Trek universe are also at risk. 

Star Trek #1

Sisko is sent on a mission by the Prophets aboard the U.S.S. Theseus, alongside Starfleet members from every Star Trek era to date. Somewhere in deep space, the crew discovers that someone is murdering the gods. And to make matters worse, Sisko and his crewmates have to find and stop the killer before they strike again.

In the announcement, Lanzing describes the new Star Trek series as "an Avengers-style ongoing crossover that treats Gene Roddenberry's creation as a living universe."

IDW intends to launch a new era of Star Trek comics with this new ongoing, so it may be the ideal jumping-on point for readers regardless of their familiarity with the franchise so far. 

From the art released by IDW, we know Sisko (Deep Space Nine), Data (Generations, First Contact, Insurrection, Nemesis, The Next Generation, and Picard), and Crusher (Next Generation) will be part of the core cast, alongside seeming newcomers T'Lir (seemingly a Vulcan) and Sato. (The Andorian Sato featured in IDW's preview art curiously shares a name with the human Hoshi Sato who appeared in Star Trek: Enterprise.)

Soon after leading her crew on a planetary expedition aimed at building bridges and advancing Federation technology, Captain Freeman begins to suspect that the planet and its people are not all what they seem… Meanwhile, the crew in the lower decks take to the holodeck, enjoying some much-needed recreational time-until a bloodthirsty visitor decides to join in on their games!

Here’s the synopsis to  Lower Decks #2, coming in October:

Star Trek: Picard won’t be returning for its third season until next February, but IDW has launched this year’s between-seasons comic tale, as Star Trek: Picard — Stargazer begins its three-issue run here in September.

As with many of the previous tie-in comics connected to the modern  Star Trek era, the  Stagazer  miniseries is written by longtime collaborators Mike Johnson &  Picard co-creator Kirsten Beyer, with art by Angel Hernandez.

Here’s the synopsis to  Stargazer #1, released in late August:

When the U.S.S. Stargazer goes missing near a planet from his past, Admiral Jean Luc-Picard enlists Seven’s help to unravel the mystery and save the Stargazer crew!

Like the  Stargazer series, this new comic story is also written by Mike Johnson and Kirsten Beyer, with art by Megan Levens.

idw star trek sisko

Here’s the synopsis for The Illyrian Enigma #1, coming in December:

With Una accused of unlawful genetic modification by Starfleet, Captain Pike sets out in search of evidence that could prove his first officer’s innocence.

Finally, IDW’s next monthly  Star Trek series kicks off this October with Star Trek #1 , a new ongoing tale centered around Benjamin Sisko — after he’s returned from the Bajoran Wormhole — who must bring together characters from many eras of the  Trek saga for his mission.

Written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly (who helmed the recently-concluded  Star Trek: Year Five series) with art by Ramon Rosanas, this new monthly comic — which is the start of a massive new comic-based continuity.

idw star trek sisko

As IDW Publishing’s marketing director Keith Davidson puts it:

It’s the biggest initiative that IDW has ever undertaken for the brand in its now-14 years of Star Trek publication. Essentially, our new Star Trek series is creating a new ongoing IDW continuity, from which we will build offshoots, spin-offs, and epic events for years to come. Benjamin Sisko takes the helm of the Enterprise, supported by a crew of characters pulled quite literally from throughout Star Trek canon — even from The Original Series! Part of the fun will be seeing how the diverse personalities mesh or clash. Honestly, we’re hoping to channel with Star Trek what Marvel did when they launched their Star Wars comics a few years back — respecting the canon that came before while building a new universe for fans that’s wholly unique, unexpected, and accessible.

Writer Jackson Lanzing called the new  Star Trek monthly “a  Deep Space Nine sequel” on social media this week, and in a lengthy new interview with ComicBook.com, described the tale as one which fits into a neat year-and-a-half of time which no on-screen  Star Trek production has yet touched: the era between Voyager’s return home and the events of  Star Trek: Nemesis.

idw star trek sisko

As writer Collin Kelly described it to ComicBook.com:

They’re giving us a lot of access to all the toys, with the understanding that at the end of it, we will put the toys back in the box. There is about a year and a half here of Star Trek timeline that is untouched, and within this, we can make all sorts of trouble as long as we put the characters that need to be back in the box for Nemesis.

Lanzing also talked about how this new storyline will be canon — until it’s not.

This is as close as we can, on the comic side, to being canon. We will be canon until they un-canonize us. But we are working with the shows. We are in communication with the teams… We’re taking this as an opportunity to effectively fill [the space formerly occupied by the Trek novel continuity], because a lot of that stuff was created with the understanding there would never be shows again. [But] now we know that there will be, so we are trying to create new canon that exists inside that space. But these are the characters you know. This is the canonical Benjamin Sisko sequel story. This is the last ride of Data before Nemesis. These are those stories. This is what happened to Tom Paris after he came back from Voyager.

idw star trek sisko

Here’s the official synopsis for  Star Trek #1 — coming in October — where Captain Sisko is joined on his mission by first officer Data, medical officer Dr. Beverly Crusher, pilot Tom Paris, and new characters as well.

It’s stardate 2378, and Benjamin Sisko has finally returned from the Bajoran Wormhole omnipotent. But his godhood is failing with every minute. Sent by the Prophets on a mission to the deepest parts of space aboard the U.S.S. Theseus, he witnesses the unthinkable: Someone is killing the gods. And only Sisko and his motley crew of Starfleet members from every era of Trek can stop them.

Here’s the official synopsis for Star Trek #2, coming in November:

Tasked with a mission from the Prophets, Benjamin Sisko enlists the help of an old friend from Qo’noS to track the ship and persons responsible for slaying the gods.

Here’s the official synopsis for Star Trek #3, coming in December:

When strange malfunctions begin plaguing the U.S.S. Theseus mid-warp, Benjamin Sisko and his crew must band together to unveil the source behind the mysterious phenomena aboard the ship. But what initially appear as mere technological quagmires and strange happenings become a test that will determine the very fate of the universe.

God killers target Sisko and Worf in IDW's 'Star Trek: Day of Blood' story arc

A new prelude issue for Free Comic Book Day ushers in this first-ever "Star Trek" crossover event.

Star Trek: Prelude to Day of Blood heads to the Klingon homeworld with an arena

For the first time since taking over command of the official "Star Trek" comic book line in 2007, IDW Publishing will present "Star Trek: Day of Blood," an absorbing 5-issue crossover event beginning this July that joins together the new "Star Trek" flagship title with the upcoming " Star Trek: Defiant " series arriving in March.

This brash " Star Trek " new storyline is being given a special introductory one-shot for Free Comic Book Day on May 6 with " Star Trek: Prelude to Day of Blood ," co-written by esteemed Trek comic creators Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly, and Christopher Cantwell with artwork by Mike Feehan.

Star Trek: Prelude to Day of Blood with bloody Federation insignia.

""Star Trek: Day of Blood" is what this last year of comic book planning has been all about," says senior editor Heather Antos in an IDW press release . "It all leads to this moment. Was Sisko the correct choice of the Prophets? Will Worf's Klingon honor serve him well? Or will the two remain in the crossfires of the godkiller? Jackson, Collin, and Chris are asking some of the biggest questions we've ever seen in "Star Trek" comics, and it's time to answer them in the franchise’s first-ever classic summer crossover event."

Here’s the official synopsis:

"In Prelude to Day of Blood, the U.S.S. Santa Cruz travels to the Korvat colony for Kot’baval. But what was supposed to be a simple observation of the sacred Klingon festival quickly turns into a bloodbath when the cult of the godkiller reveals themselves to the universe."

Star Trek: Prelude to Day of Blood characters landing on a Klingon world in a shuttlecraft.

"It's time for Benjamin Sisko to face the past," Lanzing said in the statment. "And for readers to finally get a look at the true fallout of the Dominion War. " Deep Space Nine " is the inspiration for this entire line, so it feels only right that the crew of the U.S.S. Theseus come back to where it all started."

Cantwell admits to being nothing short of ecstatic to be a vital creative player in IDW's expansive "Star Trek" initiative.

"There were moments in our writers' room with Jackson and Collin where I couldn't believe we were really doing this," he adds. "Not just telling one "Star Trek" story but weaving together multiple Trek stories at the same time, with plotlines from "Star Trek" and "Star Trek: Defiant" converging. We threw all our boldest ideas and best character pairings into a story of pure chaos, starship battles, and real epic dramatic resonance you can only achieve in the scope of comics."

Star Trek: Prelude to Day of Blood

"Star Trek: Prelude to Day of Blood" lands on May 6  with cover art by Malachi Ward.

"As lifelong "Star Trek" fans, Jack and I have been dreaming of this kind of thing since we can remember," Kelly notes. "This is the kind of event you could only do in comics, with enormous stakes and two starship crews colliding in the middle of a truly deadly crisis. This is our season finale."

To follow the entire "Day of Blood" story arc, readers can step aboard these five issues: "Star Trek: Day of Blood #1" (July 2023); "Star Trek: Defiant #6" (August 2023); "Star Trek #11" (August 2023); "Star Trek: Defiant #7" (September 2023); and "Star Trek #12" (September 2023).

Star Trek Confirms the Jaw-Dropping Final Fate of Doctor M'Benga's Daughter

  • Star Trek #21 reveals the god-like evolution of Doctor M'Benga's daughter, Rukiya, in a jaw-dropping twist.
  • Captain Sisko and the crew encounter the Realm of the Gods, where Rukiya has ascended to a higher being status.
  • M'Benga's sacrifice for his daughter leads to a bittersweet conclusion as she becomes a god in the Star Trek universe.

Warning: contains spoilers for Star Trek #21!

Star Trek just confirmed the jaw-dropping final fate of Doctor M’Benga’s daughter. When fans last saw M’Benga’s daughter in the first season of Strange New Worlds , she had bonded with a non-corporeal alien, and departed for parts unknown. Now, nearly a century later, in Star Trek #21, Rukiya M’Benga returns–and in the years since, she has ascended to something more than human.

Star Trek #21 is written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly and drawn by Megan Levens. Captain Sisko and the crew of the Theseus have arrived at the Pleroma , the newly-revealed “Realm of the Gods.” As the first mortals to lay eyes upon it, Sisko and his crew are overwhelmed at the assembly in front of them. One of them is Rukiya M’Benga.

Thanks to the alien she bonded with, Rukiya has evolved into a god-like being, one that is welcome in the Pleroma. While sympathetic to Sisko’s plight, she votes no on T’Lir’s plan.

Doctor M'Benga Made a Huge Impression on Star Trek Fans

Strange new worlds gave m'benga a tragic backstory.

Doctor M’Benga debuted during the classic Star Trek show, but only appeared in two episodes. Despite these scant appearances, M’Benga left a huge enough impression on audiences that he was revived nearly 50 years later for the spin-off Strange New Worlds . Still a blank slate, M’Benga was finally given a backstory. It was revealed that he had been the Chief Medical Officer of the Enterprise under Captain Pike. While elevating M’Benga to such a vaunted position should have been a cause for celebration, it came with a dark twist.

As revealed in Strange New World’s first season, Doctor M’Benga was a family man. Unfortunately, his daughter Rukiya was born with a rare, terminal disease. M’Benga cheated the clock by keeping his daughter in a transporter buffer, hoping to delay her death long enough for him to find a cure. Later, in the episode “The Elysian Kingdom,” Rukiya meets and befriends a non-corporeal entity. She would bond with it, and the two departed the Enterprise , presumably to share adventures together. It was a bittersweet moment for Doctor M’Benga.

Star Trek Confirms Doctor Phlox's Fate Centuries After ENTERPRISE

Doctor Phlox was the first Chief Medical Officer of the Enterprise, and now Star Trek has revealed his fate, nearly a century after the ship's mission

Rukiya M'Benga Is Now a Star Trek God

Doctor m'benga never knew what happened to his daughter.

But now, over 100 years later, Rukiya’s final fate is revealed, and it is the perfect next step in her character arc. Rukiya was a bright young woman, full of promise and life, and very much loved by her father. Doctor M’Benga went to great lengths to save his daughter, even jeopardizing his own career. He never lived to learn what truly became of Rukiya. While it broke M’Benga’s heart to let Rukiya go, it ultimately proved to be for the best, as she has ascended and become a god in the Star Trek universe.

Following the end of the big Day of Blood crossover event  IDW’s ongoing Star Trek series begins a new storyline this week titled “A Savage World of Glass and Bone.” Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing continue writing the series, with Marvel and DC artist Marcus To joining for the new arc.

At New York Comic Con earlier this month Collin Kelly spoke about how the new storyline will involve Sisko and his crew on a peacekeeping mission to prevent a third war with the Tzenkethi, a formidable foe that was mentioned but never seen on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine . Summing up Sisko’s challenge of finding peace Kelly said at NYCC  “With the Tzenkethi being gigantic space dinosaurs, that might get a little rough.”

We have a 5-page preview of issue 13.

Star Trek #13

Captain Benjamin Sisko’s quest to defeat the killer of gods is at an end, and the Prophets beckon him home to the Celestial Temple. He’s earned his rest, but when Starfleet requests his help to stop a familiar foe, the Tzenkethi Coalition, from launching the largest fleet in their history, Sisko and the  Theseus ‘ crew set out once again to save the galaxy. But there’s a reason this species of spiritually rich, reptilian lizard birds has twice defeated Starfleet in battle. They’re xenophobic, ruthless, and innovative… and confronting them on their home turf, a planet thought to be an organism itself, is as good a death sentence as any.

Exclusive First Look At September Star Trek Comics From IDW

That’s Janeway? She doesn’t even look like Janeway.

Sadly no, she doesn’t. I’ve enjoyed the story in this comic but the art has been inconsistent in quality. Some characters look like who they’re supposed to be but others are only identifiable when their names are mentioned.

Yeah, usually I’m rather lenient on the art in these funny books but that most certainly IS NOT Admiral Kathryn Janeway. Not unless there’s some temporal chroniton-somethin-or-other, timey-timey technobabble bullschwa at play that I am not privy too.

AI ain’t what it used to be

Because…surely a human would notice what they are doing doesn’t look anything like the character they are trying to render….

Given the constraints and schedules comic artists have to work under, “Good enough.” often has to be the refrain if you’re going to meet deadline.

Haven’t you ever heard of Artistic  license ? This is why I don’t hang with trek fans.

As a matter of fact, I HAVE heard of artistic license, thank you very much. Artistic license is forgiving wrinkles on the backdrop cloth on Planet M-117 because technology wasn’t there in 1966 to do a more photo-realistic job recreating the alien vista. Artistic license is not unrecognizable characters skating by using the names of beloved fan favorites. You get hired to draw a “Star Trek” funny book, you’d better goddamned well know how to draw “Star Trek” characters.

And on behalf of all Trek fans, we breathe a sigh of relief that you choose to distance yourself.

“ Artistic license is forgiving wrinkles on the backdrop cloth on Planet M-117 because technology wasn’t there in 1966 ”

In fairness, though, that is not an example of artistic license, unless you mean it in the same sense of “Alanis Morisette has an entire song about irony that doesn’t contain any examples of irony.” :)

Otherwise, I agree with you.

And I award you 500 quatloos for bringing up that Alanis song. I love making that argument!

Considering the ‘gaseous anomaly’ aspect of most a34 one-sentence snipe-posts, the word choice ‘breathe a sigh of relief’ is especially appropriate!

Artistic license doesn’t mean what you think it means, and I say that as someone whose employment relies heavily on artistic license.

It means whatever the artist wants it to mean. Your corporation mumbo-jumbo is a lie.

Sorry (not really ), but you’re in K.Conway alternative fact-land with that one.

“Funny books”? I feel like it’s suddenly 1950. :)

My father used to call all manner of comic books and graphic novels “funny books.” As I slowly lose him, I find myself embracing his quirky turns-of-phrase. I trust it’s the least offensive thing I’ve said on these old boards.

Janeway here looks more like a Katzenjammer Kid than Kate Mulgrew

Looks more like Nechayev.

I disagree, pretty thoroughly. I’m not sure what you’re expecting from comic book artwork, but if you’re looking for photorealism then you’re missing the point of the medium.

I wasn’t looking for someone to just straight up trace Kate Mulgrew, I thought this was a complete different and new character until Sisko said “Admiral Janeway.” So maybe the hair color should have been closer to her actual hair color and there should have been some other hints that this was Kathryn Janeway before that.

“You tracer!”

I get it, but… let’s go back and analyze the character artwork in Star Trek comics going all the way back to the original Gold Key run in the 60’s and 70’s.

On through the decades of DC, Marvel, IDW, and other publishers… you’ll find plenty to complain about.

Very seldom has the artwork provided a spot-on likeness of our beloved characters as portrayed by the TV and movie actors. Quite often they are unrecognizable.

You either have to get over that, or the comics just aren’t for you. It’s a different medium.

Could the comic artists try a bit harder? Perhaps. But when you understand the ‘behind the scenes’ realities of tight deadlines and relatively low pay, you begin to understand why comic artists go with their individual style and expediency over photorealism.

Not unlike the realities of CGI for TV and movies—sometimes they can get it just right. Often it looks unrealistic, and not for lack of trying on the part of the digital artists. It usually takes a lot of time and money to create something incredibly realistic, more than is available to the artists when they get to work.

If you want the characters in the comics to look exactly like the actors, you probably want to pick up something like the New Visions photonovels series by John Byrne.

Yes I know that comic artists situations suck, they deserve better.

However please see the comment underneath mine. That comment said it better than I can right now.

These comics get stranger all the time. And to pre-empt the inevitable surge of “white knight” fans who want to defend absolutely everything everyone makes regardless of quality (and with no regard for personal opinion, likes, dislikes, independence of thought).

If you’re allowed to love it, we’re allowed to hate it. (And, in fact, I don’t even hate it. I find it puzzling and badly drawn. And yes, I can draw better.)

Sisko + Picard, Shaxs and Janeway cameos/references all in the space of one page, impressive

Those comics has become more and more ridiculous.

Starfleet isn’t done with you yet,

how cute !! They think they can do something to a bunch of god like aliens who can instantly take people out of space and time LOL

Captain kirk's "death" proves a truly dark fact about star trek's entire universe.

Star Trek Debuts Its Awe-Inspiring Council of the Gods, Confirming Members from Across Franchise History

Zoe saldana: uhura in j.j. abrams’ star trek movies explained, after 58 years, star trek is finally killing off scotty - theory explained.

  • T’Lir reveals Kirk’s fate was known years ahead, suggesting predestination exists in the Star Trek universe.
  • Captain Kirk, thought dead, actually fell into the Nexus, leading to his eventual demise on Viridian III.
  • Mortals like Sisko and Kahless challenge the gods in the Star Trek universe, hinting at the existence of free will.

Warning: contains spoilers for Star Trek #21!

Captain Kirk’s “death” has revealed a potentially dark truth about the Star Trek universe. Kirk’s passing in 1994’s Star Trek: Generations was a landmark event in the franchise, and symbolized the passing of the torch. Now, in Star Trek #21, T’Lir, the last of the Organians, reveals they knew Kirk’s fate years ahead of time. This insight opens up some dark implications for the Star Trek universe as a whole.

Star Trek #21 is written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly and drawn by Megan Levens. The god-like T’Lir is the last of the Organians, who took the form of a Vulcan as a way of surviving. The issue features a text piece, made to resemble T’Lir’s journals of their time on Organia. T’Lir reveals, that on Organia, they met Captain Kirk. Kirk, Spock and company come to Organia to prevent it falling to the Klingons, unaware of the Organians' true nature.

T’Lir recounts that Kirk had the “temporal signature” of the Nexus, even then.

Star Trek Generations Killed Off Captain Kirk in a Controversial Move

Kirk's "death" seemed to be pre-ordained.

Paramount Pictures released Star Trek: Generations in 1994, bringing together Captains Kirk and Picard for the first time. In the film’s opening sequence, Kirk is seemingly killed rescuing El-Aurian refugees. In fact, Kirk was not dead, but had fallen into a traveling cosmic anomaly called the Nexus. Inside, the laws of time and space were meaningless, and they allowed Kirk to live until the 24th century, when he was freed by Captain Picard. Kirk was then killed in the battle with Doctor Tolian Soran on Viridian III. Kirk’s body eventually found its way to a Section 31 facility.

However, T’Lir seemingly knew Kirk’s fate, decades before it was to come to pass, and this raises some intriguing and disturbing questions about the idea of predestination in the Star Trek universe.

However, T’Lir seemingly knew Kirk’s fate, decades before it was to come to pass, and this raises some intriguing and disturbing questions about the idea of predestination in the Star Trek universe. T’Lir’s observation about Kirk and the Nexus would imply that the Captain was always going to meet this fate–there was no way around it. Kirk survived many harrowing encounters, but was unable to dodge the Nexus and his eventual death on Viridian III. In essence, the destiny of mortals in the Star Trek universe is predestined, whether they want it or not.

Does Freewill Truly Exist in the Star Trek Universe?

Mortals may be able to circumvent the will of star trek's gods.

The assembled gods in the Pleroma seem to reinforce this fact, but the actions of both Sisko and Kahless seem to say otherwise. Kahless’ crusade against the gods of the Star Trek universe showed they can be hurt and even killed, implying they are subjected to the same laws mortals are. Furthermore, Sisko and company, using a highly advanced technology designed by T’Lir and Scotty, were able to enter the Pleroma. If Klingons and humans can short circuit the will of the gods, then freewill may truly exist in the Star Trek universe.
