Countdown details

The latest solicitations annouced IDW's tie-in prequel to the new Star Trek movie, and now TrekMovie.com have released some details on the series.

In addition to what we already got told - A story by JJ Abrams, Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman, written by Tim Jones & Mike Johnson and illustrated by David Messina - The series will be four issues long, and the omnibus will come out in April, the same month as the final issue.

The series will be set in the TNG era, post-Nemesis, and focus on the new Romulan bad-guy Nero, and the older Spock before they embark on any time travelling antics. It might also involve some other TNG era characters. Roberto Orci has described the series as "about how you connect the Next Generation era to our continuity, inspired by when we last saw Mr. Spock in Unification"

Additionally, Orci and co. apparently have ideas for further tie-ins in the works.
