Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

So, if I want to read all the comics that might be relevant to the new movie, it's all the collections of the ongoing Trek series plus "Countdown To Darkness". Is there anything else?

Pretty much. The only other Abrams-related comics are the prequels to the first film -- Spock: Reflections, Countdown, and Nero -- and of course the movie adaptation itself.

I really enjoyed the movie adaptation and countdown to darkness comics. I hope we don't have to wait too long for the adaptation of this movie.

^ Oh sure! That reference you get! But they couldn't possibly have been referring to Jonathan Archer in the first movie!

Huh? Can we not do this again? There's no point rehashing old debates about the previous movie when we have the ongoing comic and a new movie to talk about.

In the first movie, there were clear indications that more time passed than it appeared, yes. But here,



Anyways, the video game theoretically happens between Countdown to Darkness and Into Darkness - it starts with the Enterprise being diverted by a distress call (versus the normal mission start to Countdown to Darkness), and also ends with a trip to Nibiru. The video game covers 2259.32-2259.33 - if the Mudd comics ended the day beforehand, that would put it 24 days before Into Darkness, close enough to a month in my book.
That would account for it.

I wonder if there were late script changes giving it an earlier date and adding that scene with Pike, or whether this stuff wasn't actually being vetted as strictly as is implied.
I wouldn't be surprised if the comics writer is just given a list of details and plot points to tie into but isn't necessarily told what significance they'll have in the movie, given how secretive Abrams has been. And there may also be a list of things to avoid contradicting, but they may not think of every last detail. I know from experience how hard it can be to keep every last continuity detail straight between different works.

Yeah, I had that same thought myself. But it's a stretch, and I don't think it's what the movie's writers had in mind.

The cover page for #21 was redone earlier this week, and 21-23 are currently titled:

Star Trek After Darkness.

Kelso shot himself in the head with a phaser, which pokes a big hole in that statement.

Eight or so died in the Gary Mitchell issues and they brought one corpse back with them in Galileo 7.

Could the first few issues have occurred after the the events of STiD?
