    Fingers crossed for post-Nemesis and TOS-movie era comics, stuff thats just runs over TV series ground again doesent particularly interest me.

    I particularly liked this part of the article -

    They make contained episodic comics sound like somesort of innovation rather then the way that they were written for decades before the glacial write-for-the-trade bollocks you get thesedays.

    Star Trek VS. X-men has already been done, why not Star Trek VS. Transformers?

    Most stories have been multi-part for the last two decades or so, probably longer. As it stands, most of the time longer stories are better. One shots work better for character studies rather than actually having events go like that. Twenty-two pages isn't enough to tell a full narrative with actual events mosto f the time. You need at least a double-sized issue, preferrably longer.

    Oh god images of a sovereign class transforming into optimus prime and a Prometheus class into ultra magus are filling my mind, megatron as a romulan war bird, galvatron as what ever the hell the dominion ships we called, grimlock as a klingon bird of pray… good god that could kick ass… or suck so bad it makes a black hole big enough to destroy all creation.

    Gladiator punching the Enterprise is still one of my all time favorite comic moments.

    Modern style "decompression" isn't the same as writing proper multi-part stories or individual stories with running plot, its the art of thinly stretching your material across more issues then they can actually fill for the purpose of bumping up page count and giving the often faux impression of depth.

    Even if your so much of a noob that you lump the two together, wholey episodic comics were the norm for 30-35 years before multi-parters or continuing backstory became the norm.

    I really, really hope that they get an artist who can realistically illustrate the ships. The biggest reason I've put down so many Trek comics because I just couldn't stand the gloopy, amorphous ship designs they'd use in place of actually taking the time to study and accurately recreate images of the Enterprise, etc.

    Nonsense. Will Eisner used to do it in 7 pages, and there's no serious comic fan or pro that would deny his place among the top three comics creators of all time. Modern writers need to stop writing movie screenplays and start writing comic book stories. THAT is the problem.

    I saw this a little while ago when Newsarama broke the story, but never thought to post it here. I'm still not sure if I'll pick it up when it gets released, but I am excited about the fact that they're starting with Next Generation during Season 1 when Tasha Yar was alive (she's so awesome).

    TFs vs. Star Trek sounds like it would be a good candidate for the Evolutions series. I might check some of these new comics out especially any DS9 ones.
