IDW Focus on Star Trek announcements.

In this week’s behind the scenes previews book "Focus on... Star Trek" IDW have announced their next two miniseries.

First a second TNG series "House Call" will focus on exploring the TNG characters from points of view not often seen in the series and will be written by Scott and David Tipton with art by David Messina, the team behind the wonderful Klingons: Blood Will Tell miniseries.

And second "Star Trek: Probability Factor", in a similar idea to the recently announced "Star Trek: Myriad Universe" series from Pocket Books this will look at what might have been if some detail about the Trek universe was changed. And here's the really interesting bit the episodes chosen to get the what if treatment will be nominated and voted for by the fans, three for TOS and three for TNG. And it looks like that series will be written by The Space Between and Year Four writer David Tischman.

In his write up on The Space Between Dan Taylor states that the final issue of the series should: "by no means be considered a conclusion - rather, it should be seen as a beginning." However it's unclear whether that's meant to imply the tangle of loose ends the series left will be followed up on or just that there are more TNG comics on the way.

The book also contains interviews D.C. Fontana and Paula Block and lots of info and behinds the scenes stuff about all of IDW’s Star Trek projects.
