IDW annonce la mini-série Star Trek : The Motion Picture - Echoes, suite directe du long métrage de Robert Wise.
iDW Publishing has announced, Star Trek: The Motion Picture – Echoes, a five-issue mini-series, written by Marc Guggenheim and drawn by Oleg Chudakov, set immediately after the events of the 1979 film.
Here’s how IDW describes the series:
« Echoes pits the venerated Captain James T. Kirk and his crew against enemies both terrifying and shockingly familiar! When a space anomaly thrusts a criminal mastermind – pursued by a very determined pilot on a mission – into our universe, the Enterprise must stop them from unintentionally starting a war with the Romulans and unleashing a superweapon of foreign technology into the system. But things get infinitely more complicated when these newcomers to our reality remove their helmets, revealing that they’re doppelgangers of our beloved heroes! »
« Despite watching the occasional fragment of a Star Trek episode here and there with my father, my true introduction was going to see Star Trek: The Motion Picture with my grandparents…I was entranced. I’m thrilled that IDW and Paramount Global have allowed me to revisit that time period, which was so impactful to me and my love of Star Trek, » Guggenheim said. « Almost all Trek stories are told from the point of view of the Enterprise crew, but I was interested in telling a story from the perspective of an outsider as a means of recapturing how it felt for me when I first saw Star Trek: The Motion Picture. »
« What does it mean to draw this new Star Trek adventure? It’s like revisiting my childhood, but at the same time learning something new. It’s amazing, » Chudakov said.
Covers for the first issue are by Jake Bartok, Oleg Chudakov, Luke Sparrow and Rod Reis.
