IDW is launching a new Star Trek comic with Worf and Spock leading the way.
Have you ever fantasized about what it’d be like if Spock and Worf were neighbors in a sitcom? Maybe Spock tapes a line down the center of the apartment, and Worf responds by going on a massive hunt to prove he’s a more superior warrior; only to have his car towed by the meter maid for illegal parking after he returns?
I sure have.
Well, that doesn’t appear to be what the new Star Trek offering by IDW is going to give fans, unfortunately. They’re launching a new comic called Star trek: Deviant and it will feature Worf leading the Defiant and its crew on a mission that will san endless generations of Trek.
The book starts after Star Trek: Nemesis and is a spinoff of the Star Trek comic featuring the return of Benjamin Sisko. Sisko is trying to save the Wormhole species, described as gods in the book and Worf is undertaking a similar mission but with different characters.
Worf will pair up with Spock, Voyager’s B’Elanna Torres, Data’s brother Lore and others, which also includes the return of Ro Laren.
What is the plot of Star Trek: Defiance?
Star Trek: Defiance will see a similar story arc that Star Trek proper is going through. Characters from around time and space are being brought together to help save the universe.
"In Defiant, someone is killing the gods…but while Benjamin Sisko and the U.S.S. Theseus have been facing the threats in the higher cosmos, very real casualties are growing on lower ground. The true enemy is a man, not a god, and Worf of House Martok has put together his own crew aboard the U.S.S. Defiant in the hopes of defeating the dangerous messiah behind a genocidal cult."
It should be noted that the Spock in this story seems to be the Spock we meet not long after his debut in The Next Generation, and right before he went back into and created the Kelvin timeline. As of right now, we’re not expecting any characters from the original series who aren’t still canonically alive at this point in the timeline.
