New Archives books

Steve Roby over at Starfleet Library has been doing some Amazoning, and came across listing for some new books in IDW's omnibus series Star Trek Archives. As Steve points out, these like most of the Archives preceding them are largely material that has already been reprinted at some point.

Volume 5: Best of Kirk
This six-issue collection includes the fan-favorite "Trial of James T. Kirk" Star Trek written by New York Times best-selling author Peter David. As the Klingons and Nasguls pursue their vendetta against the captain, a deadly bounty hunter is eyeing the price they've placed on his head. But if the Kirk is fortunate enough to survive the encounter, will he survive the attentions of his own Federation, eagerly looking for a scapegoat to preserve universal peace?

Volume 6: Best of Alternate Universes
The treacherous but intriguing tales of Star Trek's Mirror Universe are presented in this collection of the 8-part Mirror Universe Saga! Witness the deception and desperation that unfolds as the Empire sets out to conquer another universe. It will take all the guile and cunning Kirk, Spock, and the crew of the Enterprise can muster if they hope to ward off the coming Empire invasion, and save themselves in the process!
Volume 7: Best of Klingons
In stories like "The Wormhole Connection," "The Only Good Klingon... ," "Errand of War," "Deadly Allies," "Maggie's World," and "Judgment Day," get a close look at the relationship between the Federation and Klingon Empire. These fierce, warring people present unique challenges to the Federation, and in these classic DC stories get a glimpse of what the future holds for Federation-Klingon relations.
Also found the cover for the Movies Omnibus:

Is it the same as the old "Mirror universe saga" TB ??? The cover looks familiar :)

If the blurb is correct then exactly the same yep. Which seems odd as they're calling it "Best of Alternate Universes", you'd think that opens it up from just one mirror universe tale - not like the comics have a lacking in alternate universe stories.
