New Star Trek: The Next Generation Comic with Brannon Braga

Make it so with IDW and Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Celebrated writer Brannon Braga makes his triumphant return!

San Diego, CA (June 15, 2012) – There’s no easy way to say it… the Borg are back. The cubes, the Queen, Locutus, and their intractable stance on resistance have reared their ugly heads once again to jeopardize the fate of our Galaxy. With all evil, though, must come good, and who better to thwart the Borg’s steely agenda than Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise?

For the show’s twenty-fifth anniversary, Hugo Award-winnerBrannon Braga, one of The Next Generation’s key writers, is joining forces with fellow Trek scribe Terry Matalas and artistJoe Corroney to bring Captain Picard and the Enterprise’s crew back for a dynamic new journey.

“It’s a thrill and privilege to be writing in the Star Trek universe again,” said Braga. “This graphic medium will provide the narrative ambition and visual scope this story deserves — the final chapter in The Borg saga!”

In a distant future, where the deadly Borg have assimilated the entire Galaxy, Picard, his crew, and some unexpected allies must prove once and for all that resistance is not futile! Packed with mind-bending twists, time-jumping action, and revered, genre-defining characters, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: HIVE promises to be a must-read event for fans of the TNG’s intrepid legacy.

This September, tell your local comic shop to make it so!

STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: HIVE #1 ($3.99, 32 pages, full color), licensed by CBS Consumer Products, will be available in stores September 2012. Diamond order code: JUL12 0282.
