Now all Star Trek fans can watch their favorite U.S.S. Enterprise crew members meet Hal Jordan and the entire Green Lantern Corps in an adventure that spans space, time and all the colors of the spectrum. Set in Star Trek’s 23rd Century, the balance of the universe will be tested when the Green Lantern Corps’ Power Rings come into the possession of certain Star Trek characters while a dark and powerful evil looms around every corner. Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corp and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil’s might.
I'm sure we can expect lots of different covers in this series, and the first issue is already down for at least four, from Gabriel Rodriguez (above), Francesco Francavilla (below, after the jump), Garry Brown. and Elsa Charretier. Other issues in the series will see cover art by Declan Shalvey and Marc Laming.
This will be the second time Star Trek has run into characters from DC Comics, following IDW's 2011 TOS/Legion of Super-Heroes crossover series. And of course Star Trek crossovers are becoming a bit of a regular feature in IDW's offering, who have also delivered the multi-franchise Infestation zombie crossover event, Doctor Who, and most recently, Planet of the Apes crossover series. All of those bar Doctor Who were TOS stories; Kirk and co only made a small cameo in an otherwise TNG Doctor Who encounter. This Green Lantern series will be the first time the nuTrek crew have featured in a crossover story.
