IDW's August Star Trek solicitations

IDW have released their solicitations for August, which include two new titles, plus the third of their "Spectacular" omnibuses.

Star Trek (ongoing) #12: The Truth About Tribbles!, Part 2.
Written by Mike Johnson, with art by Claudia Balboni, and a cover by Tim Bradstreet, plus sketch and photo covers.
The conclusion of "The Truth About Tribbles!" With production underway on next year's blockbuster STAR TREK sequel, the countdown continues here in the pages of the hit series overseen by the film's writer/producer Roberto Orci! The classic episode "The Trouble With Tribbles" is re-imagined as part of the timeline of the new films!

Assimilation2 #4
Written by Scott and David Tipton, with Tony Lee, art by J.K. Woodward, with covers by Woodward and Francesco Francavilla, including a sketch version of the Francavilla cover.
The biggest science-fiction crossover of all time continues, in STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION/DOCTOR WHO: ASSIMILATION2! As the CyberBorg continue to carve a swath of destruction across the galaxy, the Federation is met with the possibility of assistance, but from an unthinkable source! Will Captain Picard and the Doctor agree to an alliance that could be worse than the enemy they face?

Star Trek 100-Page Spectacular Summer 2012
Written by Nathan Archer, Christopher Golden, and Tom Sniegoski, with art by Dave Hoover and Jeff Moy, and cover by Travis Charest.
Presenting two incredible stories from two incredible corners of the Star Trek Universe! First, the crew of the starship Enterprise, under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, finds itself in a very unusual setting—in Embrace the Wolf! Plus, Captain Janeway, Seven of Nine, and the rest of the crew of the U.S.S Voyager have a close encounter of the Borg kind in False Colors!
This is IDW's third Star Trek 100-Page Spectacular, but unlike the previous two editions, the stories here are originally from Wildstorm (the previous ones were all IDW titles), both of which have only recently been reprinted by IDW in their Star Trek Classics series of omnibuses.
