Star Trek: Picard Countdown #1 (IDW) Out Now!
Star Trek: Picard #1 (IDW)
Kirsten Beyer & Mike Johnson (w) Angel Hernandez (a)
In time for the release of the latest Star Trek featuring Jean-Luc Picard IDW bring us a prequel in an adventure where the then Admiral Picard is on a mission to save lives, Romulan lives as their sun prepares to go supernova.
It took a great deal of effort by the Federation to get the Romulans even agree to help in the necessary evacuation so paranoid are their rulers, but with conditions attached such as limiting access to their planets ad colonies and banning plantar scans (which would be blocked in any case) Star Fleet does it's best.
Picard is sent to a seemingly much more open Romulan agricultural colony. However not is all as it seems....
A great opening chapter in this tree issue mini series and the trailer shows that the new TV series will have much to offer. Having now watched the extremely good box sets of Star Trek: Discovery I am once again enthralled in the world of the future.
However how all these series fit in with the continuity of the films may confuse. Still these are all good yarns!
