Something For The Weekend: The Star Trek Waypoint Collection
by Olly MacNamee
Not so much a review (it’s been a long week and my comic book reading has suffered, to my great shame, dear readers) but rather a call to all Star Trek fans old and new. IDW have a collection of stories from all the different eras of Star Trek previous to the newest, alternative timeline Captain Kirk and crew created as a result of the shenanigans as seen in the JJ Abrams reboot.
Star Trek:Waypoint features crews and characters from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Enterprise, and more, in exciting stories envisioned by top-tier talent.
The line-up is quite impressive with the likes of Donny Cates (Dr. Strange), Gabriel Hardman (Green Lantern: Earth One), Cecil Castellucci (Shade, the Changing Girl), Sam Maggs (Secret Loves of Geek Girls), Mack Chater (Black Panther and The Crew), Megan Levens (Star Trek: Boldly Go), Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures), Rachel Stott (Star Trek/Planet of the Apes) and many more contributing to this 144 page book.
Series editor Sarah Gaydos says:
From STAR TREK: VOYAGER to STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION, STAR TREK fans are passionate about their favorite TV series, and always ask me for comics set in that universe. WAYPOINT decidedly delivers on this, thanks to the incredible work of some of the best talent in the comic book industry.
Star Trek: Waypoint is out now at 144 pages and $19.99.
