This new Star Trek ongoing series is quickly becoming more than just a series to tide you over to the next Star Trek movie. It’s getting better and better with each issue, and it shows NO signs of slowing down, especially in this issue.

Writer Mike Johnson does some VERY impressive stuff this issue. Not only does he take this episode from the original series and turn it on its ear, but he gives up something really, REALLY shocking at the end. I mean it folks, this is a game changer on epic levels. I’m guessing since Roberto Orci does consulting for this series, it MAY even turn up in the movie. But believe me, it’s something that’s NEVER been done in Star Trek, let alone Star Trek comics.

Star Trek 9Star Trek #9
Written by Mike Johnson
Art by Stephen Molnar
Colors by John Raunch
Letters by Neil Uyetake
Based on the original teleplay “The Return of the Archons” by Boris Sobelman
Creative Consultant: Robert Orci
IDW Publishing
Release Date: May 30, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

In Star Trek #9, Sulu takes the spotlight as the crew fights a very strange battle against what appears to be a group of medieval villagers. I’m sure that’s all they are. Just some peaceful people minding their own business, right? What could go wrong?

I’ve gotta tell you, this book is so much FUN!!! Writer Mike Johnson does a great job of taking an old story and updating it to fit into the current Star Trek continuity. Let’s be honest, these stories were all written in the late 1960s and while some aspects can be horribly out-dated or “hokey,” Johnson turns them around and makes them new and fresh and exciting. Plus, there’s the added bonus that this is set in the Star Trek movie “universe,” so at this point, anything can happen. Yes, you know none of the crew will to die, but still, there’s an excitement that Johnson puts into the book that gives you that “anything goes” feeling. Also, he gives us some great flashbacks and insights into the characters lives that we don’t get in the movies.

2009’s Star Trek movie breathed new life into a franchise that had been floundering for a few years, and now many Trek fans are eagerly awaiting the next film.

In the meantime, IDW Publishing will release a new comic book series featuring the new versions of the classic crew. Star Trek #1 comes out in September and will feature stories that re-imagine episodes of the original television series, as well as tell new stories. The series will be under the creative control of Star Trek writer/producer Roberto Orci, and will be written by Mike Johnson with art by Stephen Molnar, and covers by Tim Bradstreet and David Messina.

The series will start with a re-imagined version of the second Star Trek: TOS pilot “Where No Man Has Gone Before” and will go from there to expand the universe of the new movie timeline. Talking about the series, Orci said, “Movies cost money. Lots and lots of money, but comics give us unlimited budgets to take the crew of the Enterprise farther than they’ve ever been. Join us!”
