Star Trek News Bullets

  • Star Trek: Online is offering fans a beta slot in their closed beta, a special forum title and online publication of the winning fan entry in a new contest. Fans will "tell us about the planet" that is shown on the contest details page, where a red planet, surrounded by black rocks/asteroids and with a starship of some sort approaching orbit of the mysterious planet, is pictured. The contest entrants will have to write a short entry of up to five hundred words, which could be a story of the daily life on the planet, a scientific survey log, or any other type of tale that strikes the writer's fancy.

  • According to Entertainment Earth Star Trek fans can preorder Star Trek Mattel Hot Wheels models which will arrive in May. The models are 1:50 scale and based on the movies and the television shows. Ships to be included in this set: Enterprise NCC-1701 refit (Star Trek: The Motion Picture), Enterprise 1701-D (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Reliant NCC-1864 (Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan) and a Klingon Bird of Prey (Star Trek: The Search for Spock).

  • Comics Continuum announced the IDW Publishing April 2009 Star Trek publications. Star Trek: Countdown TPB, written by Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman, Tim Jones and Mike Johnson, with art and cover by David Messina, offers fans the origins of Nero, the Romulan who will make trouble in Star Trek XI. Star Trek: Countdown #4, written by Tim Jones and Mike Johnson with art and cover by David Messina, will conclude the origins of Nero as "the heroes of the Federation race against time to save the universe."

    Star Trek: Alien Spotlight: Klingons, written by Keith R.A. DeCandido, with art by J.K. Woodward, and the cover by David Williams, will explain from where the saying "Four thousand throats may be cut in a single night by a running man" came.

    Also appearing in April will be Star Trek: Crew #2, written, art and cover by John Byrne; Star Trek: Mission's End #2, written by Ty Templeton, art by Stephen Molnar cover by Joe Corroney; and Star Trek Omnibus Volume 1, which collects fifteen consecutive issues from the early Marvel Comics run.
