IDW Publishing has teamed up with Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot Productions to publish a limited four-issue comic book series with the story taken place before the new “Star Trek” movie happens. They explain that the comics will be a like a countdown type of thing before the new “Star Trek” film directed by J.J. Abrams hitting theaters everywhere May 8th of 2009. The first of the comic book series “Star Trek: Countdown #1” will be published and released in bookstores everywhere in January 2009.
The comic book series will be about a combination of both the original Star Trek and “The Next Generation” characters on how they will be passing the torch to the new movie of the younger cast.
Dark Horizons reports:
Interesting. I’ll have to pick up the first comic when it comes out.
Another thing about the new “Star Trek” film by JJ Abrams, I wonder what their premiere red carpet showing would be like. I wonder if the actors from the original Star Trek cast and actors from The Next Generation will show up at the “Star Trek” premiere in May.
We all know the original cast will show at the “Star Trek” premiere, but I wonder if we’ll get an appearance of Patrict Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, Levar Burton, etc. at JJ’s “Star Trek” premiere as well. We’ll just have to wait to see what cast members will show up. 🙂 I’m sure William Shatner will be at the premiere, no doubt. Of course, Leonard Nimoy will be there ’cause Leonard is in the new “Star Trek” film as the adult Spock.
