    It occurs to me that an interesting way of doing a Phase II prose project might be to do a short story collection with Blish-style novelizations of the Phase II scripts/treatments. I doubt anything like that would ever come to pass, but if it did I'd certainly put my money down for it.

    They'd get my money for a series of "Phase II" novel, for sure.

    I would love to see a KRAD-written adaptation of Kitumba, for example.

    I'd read a series of Phase II script adaptations.

    Just read the last story in the last issue. What a fantastic series this was! I hope they decide to go back to it at some point, I would definitely buy more of these...

    I read in an interview from SDCC that they are thinking about doing more, but hadn't come to a final decision yet at that point.

    Thought I'd refresh the thread since the trade paperback collection of the series came out a week or two back, and I just finished reading it. I did really enjoy how it took advantage of the idea of an anthology to push the limits of the Trek universe, rather than just being a grab-bag of the five series (even if a few parts, like the casual murdering of Mirror-Kirk and company seemed... weird). A (real) movie-era story would've been nice, and I definitely would be interested in a Waypoint, Vol II.

    I loved this mini-series. It think it would be great if this became a bi-monthly series.

    A Phase II comic would be AMAZING!

    Cool. I haven't read the original miniseries yet, but I really liked the concept and was hoping it would continue.
