What should be the next batch of IDW Trek comics?

I'm very excited about the announcements for the "Second Stage" IDW comics and the comments by editor Andrew Steven Harris over at TrekWeb.

ASH says
"...one of the first things I did when introducing myself to the readers was ask our fans on the IDW message boards what they wanted to see in their Trek titles. A couple of things kept surfacing, over and over again: stories about Captain Pike, recruiting certain creators like Keith RA DeCandido or Peter David, and in particular a comic book series for 'New Frontier'."
Another quote:
"We are really listening to fan requests. Another common request is that we coordinate some stories or projects with Pocket Books, and though I was initially skeptical at the logistical prospects of it all, I've been in touch with Marco Palmieri over there and am greatly encouraged that it could be a positive thing for both the companies and for the fans. We've already got some ideas kicking around - very tentative, nothing to announce yet, but very encouraging. So we're keeping an open mind with what the fans want, even for things that seem unlikely at first."
And so... my first ever poll on TrekBBS, for a "Third Stage" from IDW:

Keep in mind that IDW doesn't have all of the Trek comic rights at the moment, but TOS/TAS/TNG spin-offs, should be fair game. (Perhaps not things like Section 31, Voyager, DS9 or Enterprise yet.)

Also, I'd love to know which past Trek comic writers would you want to see Trek comics from, keeping in mind that comics is a very different medium to work in, ie. some novelists might not make great comic writers.

Re: What should be the next batch of IDW Trek comics?

Being biased, I'd love to see more Andorian Empire stuff, especially after the great "The Old Ways" issue of "Alien Spotlight: Andorians".

I'd also like to see:

* more post-TMP stuff, moving the story on from the excellent "Ex Machina"

* Arex and M'Ress getting timeslipped into "New Frontier"

* a resolution to Abnett & Edgington's Pike story (commenced at Marvel/Paramount)

* new ST comics from David Mack (continuing "Titan" or "Destiny" in comic form)

* new ST comics from the team of Mangels & Martin.

Re: What should be the next batch of IDW Trek comics?

Top of my list are Titan and some sort of Pike era series, if that series is a direct continuation of Early Voyages by Abnett & Edgington all the better, but it could be something different. Most Pike stories are set in around 2254 (around The Cage), I’d quite like to see something later in his captaincy, though the inclusion of Early Voyages characters at whatever time it occurs would be greatly appreciated.

S.D. Perry is my favourite Trek author, so I'd love to see some comics from her too.

Re: What should be the next batch of IDW Trek comics?

Of those eras listed, I'd like to see an arc set between TMP and TWOK. Bring back the pastel pyjamas uniforms!

As far writers, all of those are good choices, but I vote for Michael Jan Friedman specifically for a post-TMP/pre-TWOK arc...

I would love to see the continuation and conclusion of the "Early Voyages" and "Starfleet Academy" series. I think both were the best ongoing trek comics ever!

My votes for question 1 are post-TMP and Titan. My write-in vote for question 2 is "that Bennett guy."

Re: What should be the next batch of IDW Trek comics?

My top 10

More Year Four
More Alien Spotlight
More New Frontier
Captain April- from the very first mission
Captain Pike- later in his captaincy
Second 5 Year Mission- same continuity as Ex Machina and Mere Anarchy 4
Enterprise-A- again same continuity as Mere Anarchy 5
Excelsior- Same continuity as Forged in Fire
Stargazer- Micheal Jan Friedman
Titan- This would be amazing
Enterprise-E Post-Nemesis- same continuity as Pocket Books

Agreed.

For myself most other Trek comics pale in comparison

Re: What should be the next batch of IDW Trek comics?

I'd like to see:

A post-TMP/Ex Machina mini-series written by Christopher L. Bennett.

An Excelsior mini by Martin and Mangels.

A Titan mini by any of the excellent novel writers; or mini of stand-alones which would allow all of the writers to participate.

A psuedo continuation of Early Voyages by the same writing and art team.

More Year Four! This time with the DC Comics team of Weinstein, Purcell and Arne Starr; or the team of PAD, James Fry and Arne Starr. Too bad, Tom Sutton has passed. I really enjoyed his take on Trek despite the inaccuracies.

A Starfleet Spotlight series, similar to the Alien spotlight, but focusing on other unseen crews and captains of Starfleet. Kirk, Picard and the rest can't be the only ones. There could be an issue with Commodore Decker before he went cuckoo. Or Commodore Wesley. Or an alien captain whose cultural and societal imperatives clash with his mostly human crew.
