First Peek At 'Star Trek: Discovery' Comic & Novel

Exploring this strange new world

We've known since last year that the upcoming new Star Trek series, Star Trek: Discovery, would have tie-in comics and novels. At San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), they touched very briefly on them with the hint that the comic would focus on Klingons. Wednesday, at Star Trek Las Vegas, we got a few more tidbits about the comic.

Mike Johnson and Kirsten Beyer will be writing the Star Trek: Discovery comic, which will be a four-issue miniseries with art by Tony Shasheen. The comic will be about  T'Kuvma (played by Chris Obi in the series) and will be out in October. Here's a look at the cover:

Rather than doing a single series on Discovery, IDW editor Sarah Gaydos said they would be making a series of mini-series on different subjects.

Star Trek: Discovery's first novel will be a prequel written by David Mack set one year before the series. The title of the novel is Desperate Hours and the synopsis was read out during the Las Vegas panel:

Aboard the Starship Shenzhou, Lieutenant Michael Burnham, a human woman raised and educated among Vulcans, is promoted to acting first officer. But if she wants to keep the job, she must prove to Captain Philippa Georgiou that she deserves to have it.

She gets her chance when the Shenzhou must protect a Federation colony that is under attack by an ancient alien vessel that has surfaced from the deepest fathoms of the planet's dark, uncharted sea.

As the menace from this mysterious vessel grows stronger, Starfleet declares the colony expendable in the name of halting the threat. To save thousands of innocent lives, Burnham must infiltrate the alien ship. But to do so she needs to face the truth of her troubled past, and seek the aid of a man she has tried to avoid her entire life—until now.

Desperate Hours arrives in stores September 26, 2 days after the debut of the TV series. Like the comics, Desperate Hours will not be the sole effort, Dayton Ward is working on the next Star Trek: Discovery novel which will be another prequel, but set 10 years before the show. Ward's novel will be out in early 2018.
