February Star Trek comics

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

The Q Conflict #2 
Written by Scott and David Tipton, with art by David Messina
It's Captain vs. Captain vs. Captain vs. Captain in the most high-stakes scavenger hunt the galaxy has ever seen as Picard, Kirk, Janeway, Sisko and their teams compete for the amusement of their godlike tormentors. The biggest Star Trek crossover event ever continues here!
This second issue in the Q mega-crossover is offered in at least three covers, A and B by David Messina, plus a retail incentive from George Caltsoudas. We can only see the A so far though.


Captain Saru
Written by Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson, with art by Angel Hernandez
An all-new Discovery adventure that ties directly into season 1 of the hit CBS All Access show! Soon after the events on Q'onoS, the Discovery receives a distress call from someone from Tilly's past. It's up to Commander Saru to lead the crew against this sinister alien threat in his first mission as acting captain!
This one-shot was previously announced, and we can now see in the updated cover that it will be the 2019 Discovery annual. The book will be offered in two covers, the Paul Shipper design seen here, and a retail incentive by Angel Hernandez.

Terra Incognita omnibus
Written by Scott and David Tipton, with art by Tony Shasteen, Angel Hernandez, and Carlos Nieto.
Following their clash with their villainous doubles from the Mirror Universe, the Enterprise crew returns to business as usual, little realizing the serpent in their midst-one of their own has been replaced! Six stories focusing on fan-favorite crew members of the Enterprise-D-including Deanna Troi, Wesley Crusher, and Selar-each connected by the machinations of this sinister doppelganger. What does Mirror Barclay want, and what's to become of his Prime-universe counterpart?!

Following the blockbuster MIRROR BROKEN and THROUGH THE MIRROR storylines comes a brand-new Next Generation series, featuring untold tales of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D!
This is a very advance solicitation for the April release of this book (which of course we knew was coming anyway thanks to online retailer listings).

Finally, while John Byrne's New Visions photocomic series has come to a close, it seems he has one more little story to tell. As he explained on his forums, there was a little room left in the final omnibus edition of the series:
Speaking of the trades, the "last" one ended up being four pages short, so Scott Dunbier asked if I could come up with something to fill that space. With Paramount/CBS's approval, I concocted a little "dream adventure". Here's the first page. . .
