Re: NEW ONGOING STAR TREK SERIES FROM IDW!!!

Perhaps they want to hold off on actually showing Chapel in case she's in the next movie? Just a random theory, I have no idea if anything like that is happening.

^Mulhall was from a season 2 episode. And Dr. Noel was a psychiatric doctor, not an MD, so I don't think she'd be in charge of sickbay.
Thanks for the clarification, I always think that Miranda Jones was season 2 and I know they were separate seasons. But what a bargain, even if they stuck with the original timeline, she could be around a lot sooner. They might adjust the story so that the android bodies are completed and/or so that the bodies of some guest crew (perhaps including Mulhall) are stolen to become recurring villains. Maybe they could become additions to Khan's motley crew of augments, orion pirates, and klingon mercenaries!

Noel was a psychiatrist I think, which means she is an MD who specialises in pychiatric illness and therefore probably not qualified to be a surgeon (albeit qualified to try and diagnose Gary Mitchel). On a small ship that still makes her more qualified to supervise sick bay while a CMO is off ship than a nurse. M'Benga was a surgeon though - they could always cast him as the xenobiology doc I suppose.

I suspect that they held off featuring Chapel until an actress was cast so they could draw her likeness. Not sure when the comic was drawn in relation to the movie but I certainly hope that they are going to give Chapel in few lines in this one. If Chapel looks like Majel in the comic, this could be an indication that she isn't going to feature.

A comic coming out now would probably have had the art done a couple of months ago. And shooting just began a week or so ago, so casting was probably concluded fairly recently -- indeed, casting for some smaller roles might not even have been completed yet, depending on when their scenes are shot. I'd say it's too early to expect likenesses of new cast members.

Yes I think that is probably correct. Although they may use a vague likeness with a distinctive hairdo that they can plop on any old actress. Rand for example may not be in the next movie but there was at least one blonde crewman with the same hairdo in the last movie.

The novel authors are supposedly welcome to pitch, and some have been successful (eg. KRAD, PAD, Ian Edginton. Bob Greenberger had a story accepted but it was cancelled), but IDW also have their own stable of dependable freelancers(?), so it can be tricky to break in, as in all other areas of publishing. Andy Mangels has said he's made numerous approaches, to several past IDW editors, with ST stories and can't crack it for a gig.

haven't seen anything yet, the previews usually show up within the week before publication, so we have a couple of days to wait

The ongoing in doing all kinds of reimagined episodes...one would think they would get around to doing the Doomsday Machine eventually.

Re: NEW ONGOING STAR TREK SERIES FROM IDW!!!

Aren't they kinda doing them in as they originally happened in TOS to some degree? If so, then "The Doomsday Machine" is a second season story while "Return of the Archons" is still a first season one.
