IDW, the publisher of the Star Trek: Year Five and Star Trek: Picard: Countdown comic series, has announced an upcoming miniseries featuring the former Borg drone, Seven of Nine.
Star Trek: Voyager “Seven’s Reckoning”, a four-part story from Star Trek: Waypoint writer Dave Baker, takes the reader into what starts out as a routine repair mission on a damaged alien vessel, somewhere in the Delta Quadrant. As events unfold, Seven of Nine “becomes ensnared by an ancient conflict, one that puts her newfound humanity to the test.”
A “lifelong Star Trek fan”, Baker shared why he enjoys writing Star Trek content. “Being able to play my small part in advancing the ideals of a better tomorrow means the world to me,” Baker said. “This plays directly into why I wanted to write the book to begin with. To put it simply, the stories we tell one another matter…and the stories we tell ourselves matter most of all.”
For “Seven’s Reckoning”, Baker joined forces with artists Angel Hernandez (Star Trek: Picard: Countdown) and Ronda Pattinson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). IDW editor Chase Marotz praised the creative team, saying, “Dave Baker is a talented writer and huge Trek fan with a great understanding of the characters. Angel Hernandez, who has wowed fans with his work on Star Trek / Green Lantern and Picard—Countdown, keeps getting better and better, and Ronda Pattison will bring her unique palette to an all-new alien species that we think fans are going to love. We have a great crew and can’t wait for people to see where we’re going!”
The first issue of this four-part comic miniseries will be made available with several different cover designs. Cover A will feature artwork from Angel Hernandez. Cover B will show a photo of Seven of Nine, portrayed by actress Jeri Ryan. A “retailer incentive” cover is also being produced with artwork from artist Jeffery Veregge.
