New Webcomic Serial
 
Unbelievably nobody in the history of the internet ever bought trekcomic.com, so I did. I've decided to start a webcomic based on some scripts I wrote while working on Klingon Propaganda.

So check it out. I'll be trying to update it on a weekly schedule. Using the RSS link is your best bet.

That looks absolutely phenomenal. I've been waiting for this sort of web comic for a long time.

Very cool! I love the art style, and the Romulan War era definitely draws my interest too! :techman:

And I didn't know you were behind that Klingon propaganda video. Nice work on that!

Ha! He was designed as a mix of Barry Russo and Popeye. I guess that does equal Sam Waterston, but with less eyebrows.

The Romulan war will only be in the first serial. I plan to skip between eras and casts with each series. This will actually be a look at how the Romulan war ended.

Looks good!

And thank you for leaving the m/arcs in the "power pods" where they belong.. I.e. in the nacelles!

Great work, Mark! We used to have a webcomic thread here, but it seemingly died. Maybe it was too hard to continue one long story...
Hey, how about a single webcomic thread where everyone contributes his or her individual strips? Different varieties of short stories/strips/pages might keep another thread going.

Er, maybe I missed something, but where did you get that from?

Matt Jefferies himself. When he was first thinking up the design he thought (quote) "The engines are dangerous, so they ought to be kept out of the way somewhere." So Matt Jefferies' Original Intent was for power to the ship to come from the nacelles ("power pods" in his notations) and not from a single reactor inside any populated part of the ship. The creator talks about this on the "About" page of the web site.

Back on topic: Pretty nice comic.

^Ah. I knew about Jefferies' assumptions, didn't know how that applied here. Apparently the entire top banner, including any indications of links, doesn't load for me at work. Firewall fun, I suppose.

No red menu bar? That's troublesome. Why would a firewall block a div called "mymenu" and nothing else?
