In just under two months, Star Trek: Discovery will take audiences back to the original, beloved timeline of Star Trek: The Original Series, 10 years before that show depicted the adventures of the Enterprise. For Trek fans that can’t wait that long, there are now new details for the series’ upcoming tie-in comic from IDW Publishing that include the first look at the first issue’s cover.
The cover, featuring Klingon leader T’Kuvma (played by actor Chris Obi on Discovery), was first revealed by The Hollywood Reporter alongside news of the series’ tie-in novel. Both the comic and novel will be set in the main series’ canon, fitting into the events of the CBS All-Access show’s timeline.
The comic, from Star Trek comics scribe Mike Johnson, Discovery series writer Kirsten Beyer and artist Tony Shasteen (Star Trek: Boldly Go), will focus on the backstory of several key Klingon characters that will appear on the show.
Take a look at the cover for the first Star Trek: Discovery tie-in comic below.
Star Trek: Discovery will start airing September 24 on CBS All Access, Canada’s Space channel, and around the world on Netflix. The ongoing comic series will launch in October.
