IDW's Star Trek comics for October

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

Aftermath #3
Writtern by Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson, with art by Tony Shasteen.
You saw the stunning conclusion of the second season of Star Trek: Discovery—now prepare yourselves for the ending of the Aftermath! With the fragile peace between the Klingons and the Federation hanging by a thread, Spock, Captain Pike, and Chancellor L’Rell make a last stand against the forces threatening to ignite a new galactic war!
This will be offered in two covers, with the A cover coming from Angel Hernandez. A photo cover (not yet released) will be offered as a retail incentive:

Year Five #7
Written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly, with art from Stephen Thompson.
Just as the crew is finally able to communicate with their Tholian passenger, the Enterprise runs into a new obstacle—a Tholian web! But as the crew works with other trapped ships to figure out how to escape, new questions about what the Tholian Assembly is planning darken the horizon.
This will also be offered in two covers, with the A from the issue artist Stephen Thompson, and a retail incentive variant from J.J. Lendl.

UPDATE: Thompson has now tweeted the above cover art without the titles on top.

Writer Jackson Lanzing has tweeted some further details in this new story arc (Year Five works in two-issues episodes):
The Enterprise encounters a deadly new Tholian Web, the trinity is torn asunder, and we take our story for the very first time in Star Trek history... to THOLIA.
we'll be leaning DEEP into the mystery of the Tholian colony from "Odyssey's End."
As a kid who grew up wondering about what kinds of mysteries lay on the other side of Tholian territory, it is staggering to me that we finally get to bring Star Trek across that border. The Tholians are unlike any other species in Trek canon. I can't wait to show you why.
Also of note: "Trespasser" introduces an entirely new species. We're not just playing with the old toys, we're bringing our new ones to the table. Every effort is being made to give you the most exciting Star Trek comics possible. It's honestly our dream.
Meanwhile artist Silvia Califano has been working on the 5th and 6th issues of the series, and recently shared this glimpse at his artwork in progress:

Finally, the new Voyager comic, pre-announced at San Diego Comic Con:

Mirrors and Smoke 
Written by Paul Allor, with art by J.K. Woodward.
Stranded far from the ruins of the Terran Empire, Captain Janeway of the rebel ship Voyager has crowned herself Pirate Queen of the Delta Quadrant! Of course, the locals won’t give in without a fight—especially not scavengers Neelix and Kes. And who is this apparent Terran who calls herself Annika Hansen? Find out in Mirror Voyager’s amazing comic book debut!
As previously announced, the A cover comes from J.K. Woodward, with a retail incentive from George Caltsoudas.
