While there are many possible explanations, the simplest one is that they're using Where No Man... as a template for the new film.
In which case Orci would not have given IDW Comics a green light to remake "Where No Man..." in its very first two issues
of "ST Ongoing."
Did they even have a story locked in for the film eighteen months ago when the comic was written? And would they let a comic read by, maybe 10,000 people, stop them from doing a story for a $185 million dollar movie?
