Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

Can anyone think of a reason as to why IDW randomly made the ongoing comics currently set in 2261? Cause according to Memory Beta, this is the captain's log for "The Q Gambit, Part 1":
Captain's log, stardate 2261.34. The Enterprise has arrived at the previously unexplored star system designated Menzies 216, at the edge of the Alpha Quadrant. It's been several months since we left Earth on our five-year mission. To borrow a phrase from Chief Engineer Scott, the ship and her crew are all firing on all cylinders. All ship systems are operating at peak efficiency. Morale on the ship is good. The better I come to know the crew, the more confident I am they're the best in the fleet.
It makes no sense to me. Star Trek Into Darkness clearly ended either at the end of 2259 or the beginning of 2260 as the five-year mission began. What's up with IDW's dating?

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

The bulk of STID, judging from the 2259.55 stardate, took place from late February to early March 2259. The closing scene, according to Kirk's speech, took place a year later, in early 2260. That was when the ship was recommissioned; perhaps there were several more months between the recommissioning and the start of the 5YM proper?

Of course, the comics' timing is already messed up because the "one year ago" line was added in post-production and the "After Darkness" comic wasn't aware of it. Now they seem to have overcorrected in the other direction.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

^Since no preview has come out on startrek.com today (Tuesday), I would guess that issue #37 will come out Wednesday of next week. IDW is lazy or something about advertising release dates.

Marvel does this as well, and a trick I've learned is that if you Google, for example, "Star Trek Ongoing 37 previewsworld.com", you can normally find the dedicated Previews page for that issue and it'll have the release date.

#37 is out 9/24
#38: 10/8
#39: 11/5

I was just notified yesterday, by my online comic store, that #37 is available for purchase....so I went ahead and bought #36 and 37. And, I'm awaiting to see how the story turns out...

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

I'm confused. So in the time that the Enterprise disappeared because of Q, the Dominion infiltrated the Romulan Star Empire and detonated red matter on Romulus. I thought Section 31 got ahold of all the remaining red matter?

And so the alternate reality Defiant was built prior the fall of Earth sometime prior to 2332? Or was it a Starfleet project the Klingons completed and gave to Benjamin Sisko?

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

I think there are a lot of questions like that, that will be answered by the end of the series, hopefully

And remember, Q is involved. So none of this can be taken on face value, based on that alone. For all we know, Q is faking this whole thing.

True, but resolving a six-issue arc with that is probably going to be seen as a cop-out by a lot of people.

Where did you get the year 2332 from?

Maybe this will clear up some confusion:
