IDW May issues

Comics Continuum have published IDW’s solicitations for May, the first month to feature four Star Trek titles (plus a Star Trek omnibus book). The posting also included the first look at Rob and Joe Sharp's cover art for The Enterprise Experiment #2. Here's what's on the way:

Intelligence Gathering #5
It's the final issue of the all-new adventure of the crew of the Enterprise-D! Someone's been leading Captain Picard and company across the galaxy -- but why? And who's behind it? The stakes are raised on a planetary scale.

New Frontier #3
Mackenzie Calhoun has caught up with the fleeing Admiral Jellico, and the Excalibur is prepared to blow both Jellico and the time ship out of space... until Calhoun discovers the shocking truth of who is behind both Jellico's apparently treasonous acts and the theft of the experimental vessel.

The Enterprise Experiment #2
The untold fourth year of the Enterprise's legendary five-year mission continues! With the Enterprise crippled and out of phase in a cloaking experiment gone haywire, a Romulan strike force storms the starship, looking for revenge over their stolen technology. Kirk and Spock, meanwhile, must find a way to repel the invaders, while at the same time reverse the experiment and restore the ship -- before it fades away completely!

Assignment Earth #1
IDW's Star Trek: Second Stage continues, as comics icon John Byrne unveils the first-ever Star Trek series of his decades-spanning career! The 1968 TV episode "Assignment Earth" had been the Season Two finale for the original Star Trek series, and was intended by Gene Roddenberry as the pilot for a spin-off series that never came to pass. Now, Byrne delivers the series 40 years after it would have debuted, recounting the adventures of interstellar agent Gary Seven and his Earth-born assistant as they covertly confront threats to the past so that they can save Star Trek's future. Byrne will both write and draw the series, which steps one year forward with each installment, beginning with 1968, the year that the spin-off series would have appeared.

Alien Spotlight omnibus
In the vast Star Trek universe, many diverse alien races abound, and now they finally get their due! Presenting a collection of six tales set throughout the Star Trek galaxy, each by a different creative team and featuring a different Star Trek alien race. This collection includes stories of the Gorn, Vulcans, Andorians, Orions, Borg, and Romulans, and features guest-stars such as Captains Pike, Janeway and Terrell, along with familiar faces like Picard, Spock, and many others.
