IDW takes you to Deep Space 9… Abramsverse Style
Fans of Q will interested in what IDW has in store for us starting in July... of maybe not, depending on how you feel about the Abramsverse. Issue #35 of the Star Trek Ongoing series begins a six-part series titled "The Q Gambit." The series, which begins in July, finds the mischievous Q sending James T. Kirk on a quest that will witness the Enterprise joining forces with familiar faces from Trek lore, beginning with the crew of a very familiar space station. We've speculated on Literary Treks that "a very familiar space station" referred to DS9, and the cover art just revealed for Issue #36 confirms this. How do you feel about an Abramsverse DS9?
