While Starfleet personnel of the 24th century view Klingons as their allies, in the Star Trek universe of Captain Kirk’s time, the Klingons were always viewed as being on the wrong side of their struggles with the United Federation of Planets. As a species, they were allegedly responsible for some reprehensible acts (resulting in some classic TV episodes and movies), but were they really in the wrong? Or did they just not have a fair chance to present their side of the story?

Starting in April, they’ll get their chance. Star Trek: Klingons: Blood Will Tell is a new, five-part miniseries that will finally give the Klingons their due. In this special miniseries, we will see five historic Federation-Klingon incidents revisited through the eyes of the Klingon people. After this miniseries, you may never be able to look at episodes like “A Private Little War” or “The Trouble with Tribbles” in the same way again. These stories, viewed from the Klingon perspective, will explain much more of why the Klingon Empire functions the way it does.

ImageStar Trek: Klingons: Blood Will Tell features the pairing of the Angel: Auld Lang Syne creative team of writer Scott Tipton (here aided by his brother, David Tipton) and artist David Messina. The first issue centers on an unsteady peace that breaks into full-scale war after a Klingon cruiser is destroyed by the Federation Starship Enterprise. And issue two will, at long last, examine the result of Montgomery Scott’s beaming of thousands of tribbles onto a Klingon cruiser. Artist Joe Corroney (24: Nightfall) will join Messina in providing variant covers for this series.

To herald this special event a bit more, the first issue of Star Trek: Klingons: Blood Will Tell will be offered with a unique variant—the issue will be available in a standard edition or in a special 40-page Klingon Language Edition, accompanied by the original script in English to aid translation.

Star Trek: Klingons: Blood Will Tell #1 (item code FEB07 3520) debuts in April as a 32-page comic book or a special 40-page Klingon language edition.

To discuss, Trekkies.
