IDW Publishing have released a new five part story arc called Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, with issue 4 in March. The comic follows Kirk, Spock, Uhura and some surprise faces while they are still cadets-in-training at Starfleet Academy, set in the period just prior to the opening of the 2009 mega-hit film.
The hit new series continues here as our all new cast of cadets sets off on their first mission in space and headlong into a century-old mystery that could change the Academy forever. Meanwhile, Uhura risks her career in Starfleet with her only chance at redemption coming from a most unlikely place.
There are two variant covers, one featuring Robert Wilson IV and the other by David Malan.
