Star Trek Ongoing.
Leading up to the 2009 J.J. Abrams reboot of Star Trek, IDW released a series of comics that told the backstory of the movie. Now the publisher has launched a monthly series that is set in the alternate timeline of the Abramsverse. Titled Star Trek Ongoing, this new series re-imagines episodes of The Original Series under the creative direction of Star Trek 2009 writer Roberto Orci. In this episode of The Ready Room we're joined by Five Year Mission's Mike Rittenhouse to discuss the first issue, where this series may be headed, and how it may tie in to the next J.J. Abrams movie.
In our news segment we cover the details that have finally emerged about TNG HD on Blu-ray, the Star Trek.com poll that named First Contact the most underrated TNG movie, upcoming IDW titles for autumn, hear Ethan Phillips talking about Neelix, get our chocolate fix with M&M’s Star Trek figurines, and discuss Brannon Braga saying that he takes responsibility for decisions that some believe hurt the Star Trek franchise.
