During the Star Trek Destination event over in Birmingham (United Kingdom), IDW Publishing announced yet  another  Star Trek comic title to come in 2019. This new title will be set in the Star Trek: Discovery universe and will star the show's main alien character (ala. Spock), the Kelpien first officer Saru.

Aside from the comic beaming down in February and the creative team of writers Mike Johnson & Kirsten Beyer, artist Angel Hernandez, and cover artist Paul Shipper; no real information was revealed about the upcoming one-shot. However, since it is titled Star Trek: Discovery - Captain Saru, one might guess that it takes place in the latter half of the show's first season since Saru takes the role of acting captain of the U.S.S. Discovery.

The Shipper cover was also revealed:


More information should be available in November's IDW solicitations. Saru can also be seen in December's Short Treks episode featuring the character, as well as on Star Trek: Discovery's second season, starting January 2019. Both require a subscription to CBS All Access though. Well, at least there are also novels and comics…
