In IMDb cast list, there is a Captain Abbott - Beau Bilingslea. StarFleet captain? Civil captain?

"Previews" has a clear image of the cover of issue #1. It is Kirk. No Doomsday Device, no glowing eyes, no Cheron visage, no Gary Mitchell in sight.

Going by past mini-series, this will be one of five(?) variant covers for issue #1.

Isn't it amazing what people in this thread thought they saw?

"It's Cumberbatch!"

"It's Lokai!"

"It's Kirk with a ripped shirt!"

"It's some new starship!"

In my defense, when I suggested it was Lokai (from TOS: LTBYLB), I used a "wink smilie" ( ), which usually indicates non-seriousness.

So....

The comic won't be canon, but the diehard Trek fans will still buy it!

Also of note: that page has a release date for issue 1. January 30. Which is consistent with when Countdown issue 1 was released (end of January 2009).

In other words, it's likely that there will be a trailer by then.

I've never bought Star Trek tie-ins based on canonicity. I buy them because I like collecting and reading them - even the bad ones.

If fans collected only "canonical" ST tie-ins, they would have only a copy of the "Voyager: Mosaic" hardcover in their collections - and the screenwriters started overruling it as soon as Jeri Taylor left "Voyager" anyway.
