Does this mean that Pocket gets to release the Abramsverse four now that we have both a ongoing comic and video game set in the new continuity?

^Did Orci oversee the novels? That seems to be the theme with the games and comics, involvement from the filmmakers.
There's also the board game Star Trek Expeditions which just came out and features a story set after the film, no mention of Orci involvement there so far as I can tell. I really hope this does mean the novels might be back on the cards sooner rather than later (to be released alongside the new film ideally I suppose).

I'm happy IDW has new Trek comics on the way, and the idea of an ongoing series, and expanding the new timeline. I'm a little unsure about the idea of revisiting TOS episodes, at least if the idea is to do quite a few. The chances of the same ship (ish) and crew encountering all the same things, but several years earlier seems a bit of a stretch to me. I hope they remember the new timeline is years earlier too, and take that into account when considering when/where/why events are happening as well.

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

I'm excited for this series, but i'm gonna wait and see the finished product before judging it based solely on a little description.
I'm sure they dont plan to simply do adaptations of episodes, simply inserting chris pine for william shatner.
People sure do love to jump to conclusions.

if you want to get an idea for steven Molnar's artwork, check out the IDW star trek: mission's end mini-series. He did that one.

Thanks for the heads up.

Pretty underwhelming artwork. Not sure if its the penciller or that the inker went overboard.

Guess it would've been too much to ask for a big name art team on issue 1.

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

I want those 4 canceled novels. If IDW is able to tell stories in between the nuTrek movies, so should Pocket. Otherwise I call BS.

And I'll give this a pass until the first trade paperback and hear the reviews. I haven't been real high on some of IDW's previous Trek releases.

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

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on these. Not sure yet if I'm going to get them, but I'm definitely intrigued. I actually kinda like the idea of them putting a new twist on the episodes, I think it could be fun to see what they come up with.

This.

What is the point of making the whole Trek thing all fresh and new if you're just going to re-do stuff we've already seen.
That's why this is happening in a comic book, for the die-hardiest of die hards, the minority of minorities, to see. If they were doing it in one of the films, I'd agree with you, but this medium seems more appropriate to that kind of fun.

IDW is doing photo covers as 1-for-40 variant covers for the first issue.

If they follow their established pattern, they'll have photo covers and painted covers and penciled covers and...

...and about fourteen different options per issue to try and drive up sales to the collectors that will always buy every single version.

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

being a tos fan i would be interested to see how they manage to recreate the series and have kind of wondered how "changing" the timeline would affect the episodes considering they didnt involve gary mitchell in the film. On the other hand the whole changing the timeline thing was meant to mean they could create a whole universe to create new adventures not recreate old ones.

Still as i mentioned it would be interesting to see how they recreate those classic adventures.
