I've got a round up of the latest Star Trek costume, props, and apparel today. Continue below for everything from faithful reproductions to some more esoteric takes on Trek.

First up, Trick or Treat Studios have revealed their latest Star Trek mask, a Gorn! Sculpted by special effects makeup artist Chris Gallaher, it is described as a "perfect replica of the mask worn by the Gorn in the original Star Trek episode Arena". This is expected to arrive in August/September (but available to preorder now), and joins a range that so far includes Balok, Spock, and Kirk.

Discovery updates: Season 3, Light and Shadows previews, and more

Got lots of Discovery updates today, with previews of this week's episode, Light and Shadows, and more on last week's The Sound of Thunder. But first, the big news of the week is that Discovery has been officially renewed for a third season - Which is hardly surprisingly given the numerous mentions to plans being afoot for that eventually, but it's still good news it's definitely happening! No info yet on when the season will start or how many episodes it will have.

Along with that announcement, Discovery writer Michelle Paradise has been made co-showrunner for season three, working alongside Alex Kurtzman who took on that role on his own for the second season. Here's what Kurtzman had to say about that when talking to The Hollywood Reporter:
Michelle joined us midway through season two and energized the room with her ferocious knowledge of Trek. Her grasp of character and story detail, her drive and her focus have already become essential in ensuring the Trek legacy, and her fresh perspective always keeps us looking forward. I’m proud to say Michelle and I are officially running Star Trek: Discovery together.
Naturally CBS have released a little announcement video for this news too:

Out this week is the second issue in IDW's mega-multi-series-crossover The Q Conflict, in which various superbeings brings together the crews from TNGDS9Voyager, and TOS as their playthings, and this time throw in the Iconians too!

The series comes from writers Scott and David Tipton, with art by David Messina, who also provides both the A and B covers, which themselves continue a series begun with the covers from the first issue, framing an assortment of the main cast characters inside the bodies of their superbeing overseers, in this case Trelane and a Metron.

Star Trek vs Transformers #5 preview

Out this week is the fifth and final issue in IDW's Star Trek vs Transformers comic series; if you thought Fortress Tiberius (the USS Enterprise Transformer) was wild, just wait to see what this issue delivers!

The series is from writers John Barber and Mike Johnson, with art by Philip Murphy, who also provides the action packed space battle A cover. The B cover, also rather spacey, is from Josh Burcham, and there's also a more down to Earth (or Qo'noS?) retail incentive cover from Chris Panda.

IDW's Star Trek comics for May

IDW have released their solicitations for May, which include two new Star Trek comics. Continue below for all the details of those, and other comics updates:

Star Trek: Year Five #2
Written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly. Art by Stephen Thompson.
As the last year of their original mission begins, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise will have to use all of the skills they’ve acquired along the way as they prepare to face the biggest challenge of their lives—a dark threat that doesn’t just threaten their existence, but the existence of the entire Federation as well...
Two covers have been announced for this one, with the main Tholian dominated cover coming from the issue artist Thompson (which you can also see on Twitter pre-colouring). A retail incentive (not yet revealed) will be by J. J. Lendl.

Trek TV updates: Animation rumours, Discovery titles, The Sound of Thunder previews, and more

Lots of Discovery updates today, including new episode titles, previews for this week's The Sound of Thunder, and follow-ups to last week's Saints of Imperfection. But first, a little note on other Trek TV news:

The Hollywood Reporter among others have reported that the child-orientated animated series in the works is close to finding a home at Nickelodeon. The series, which is also reported to be written by Kevin and Dan Hageman (whose previous credits include the series Trollhunters and Ninjago, and The Lego Movie), is described as being tentpole in a refreshed lineup for the network - I'm really glad to see this series progressing; Star Trek for a younger audience is long overdue, and much needed to help indoctrinate *ahem* inspire a new generation of trekkies.

Back to the current series, TV Passport has again revealed the titles for several more episodes of Discovery. Speculate away what they might mean:
  • 2x07: Light and Shadows
  • 2x08: If Memory Serves
  • 2x09: Project Daedalus
  • 2x10: The Red Angel
  • 2x11: Perpetual Infinity
And just before all those we have this week's Saru focused The Sound of Thunder. Here's the trailer:
