IDW are apparently considering doing some Excelsior comics...
Well, that depends on what you mean by "considering". I think the new editor, Andy Schmidt, was gauging fan interest in Excelsior (among many different possibilities, like Titan, etc.) at the convention--which, in the fan communities, quickly gets translated into "considering", and then, "there's one planned", and then "why don't we have our Excelsior series, you promised there would be one."
I'm not saying that there won't
be an Excelsior series--only that I heard first-hand what Andy said at the panel in San Diego...and then I've seen people pick up on that, run down the field with it, cross the road, jump over the fence and pitch full speed off the edge of the cliff.
Personally, I'd *love* to see an Excelsior series, and Sulu and his ship play a big role in the Star Trek: The Last Generation
series that I'm writing. But, also remember how much has already been announced for certain: Last Generation,
John Byrne's Romulans
sequel, his tentatively titled "Crew" series, Alien Spotlight II, movie-related stuff...it'll already be a pretty busy year all-around.
