It'd be interesting to see IDW get license for a couple other Rodenberry projects. Say The Questor Tapes, or (my personal wish) Andromeda. An ongoing Andromeda comic would rock, especially if you could get input from Robert Hewitt Wolfe.
Not to burst your bubble or anything, but I've seen the royalty statements on my Andromeda novel. And from what I understand, mine was the one that sold best (mainly by virtue of being first; it certainly wasn't because of my writing talent....). And that was released when the show was still on the air. I can't see there being enough of an audience for a comic book based on GRA to justify paying for a licensing deal....
Bummer. But a guy can dream, right? Thanks for the insight, though.
Actually, this came up when I was preparing publicity for John Byrne's Star Trek: Assignment Earth series. I asked John about what Trek crossover project he'd like to do, and he said The Questor Tapes.

Which is not to say it's ever going to happen--but if it did, it'd probably be Byrne that did it.
