Sadly still nothing on the Star Trek movie front. I would have thought something would be in motion but the entire year might be quiet as really they have until the end of the year to get a script and director. As long as the filming starts summer 2015, they can easily make the likely release date of 2016 for 50th Anniversary of Star Trek. On to IDW Publishing who has released their publishing plans for May 2014. Not much on the Star Trek front with only 1 issue. If IDW is trolling the bottom of the well by doing yet another photo manipulation issue with John Byrne, I once again toss out the idea that they need to adapt the last few years of Trek novels starting with Star Trek: Destiny trilogy. For the full details of IDW's other books including GI Joe, TMNT, Transformers, and more click here.

John Byrne (writer, artist & photo-manipulation)
Following up on last years hugely successful "Strange New Worlds" photonovel, John Byrne once again sets sail aboard the Starship: Enterprise, this time with an ongoing, bi-monthly series that begins by going through the looking glass to tell the story of what happened after the classic "Mirror, Mirror" episode of the original series. The crew discovers two strangers in their midst, and quickly learns that one has made a pact with one of James Kirk's oldest foes. "The Mirror, Cracked" is the title, and the action unfolds in May!
