Star Trek Starfleet Academy #3 coverIDW Publishing is set to release a new five part story arc called Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, with issue 3 in February.

The all-new hit STAR TREK mini-series continues here, as Uhura and Kirk draw closer to uncovering the truth surrounding a century-old mystery. Meanwhile, T’Laan and the new cadets find themselves on the brink of elimination from the Centennial Competition!

Written by Mike Johnson and Ryan Parrott. The art and cover are by Derek Charm.

There are two variant covers, one featuring Paulina Ganucheau and the other by Adam Rosenlunc.
