And then there were two...

Comics News International have posted IDW's solicitations for August. Which are oddly empty in terms of Star Trek releases. Not only is there not a new miniseries (Alien Spotlight II?) to fill the gap left by the completion of the New Frontier miniseries, but there is also a missing issue: August should have issue three of the Mirror Images miniseries, but the issue is not listed in the solicitation. Error or delay? I know not.

The month does include a new omnibus and this posting sees the first look at the cover for the forth issue of the Assignment: Earth miniseries.

Assignment: Earth #4
Mysterious alien technology. Senseless death. And a growing awareness that there may be those beyond our world who don’t want to see Earth survive! Seven and Roberta face their greatest challenge yet… an invasion from the most distant regions of the Galaxy! The penultimate issue in John Byrne’s first-ever Star Trek spin-off!

The Enterprise Experiment #5
In the final chapter of The Enterprise Experiment, a great discovery sends the crew of the Starship: Enterprise on a mission to locate an ancient outpost before the Klingon fleet can seize its power for themselves. The answers Kirk and his crew have sought will finally come into focus, as a long-lived mystery is revealed, and new alliances change the political landscape and cause ramifications long into the future. D.C. Fontana, Derek Chester, and Gordon Purcell conclude their Original Series adventure!

Intelligence Gathering omnibus
One year ago IDW’s Star Trek comics launched with Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Space Between, a series of six stand-alone issues. Now, prepare for the latest voyage of the Enterprise as the creative team that brought you Klingons: Blood Will Tell tackles an all-new TNG mini-series. Collecting all five issues of the Intelligence Gathering series, written by Scott & David Tipton, with art by David Messina, and amazing photorealistic variant covers by Joe Corroney.
