So as one team finds themselves witnessing what happened in the deep past to change history, the other team discovers the far reaching effects of the aftermath in the present.

I'm starting to wonder if by "along with new threats and characters never seen before," IDW simply meant new threats and characters would be a part of their TV episode retellings, and not the occasional new adventure mixed in between the retellings like I (and I think many others) inferred.

Still, I'm very psyched about this take on "Operation: Annihilate"-- it sounds like Kirk's brother is going to be alive!
