Didja Know?

 

Stranger Worlds is a 6-part Star Trek story set in the Kelvin Timeline created by the Romulan Nero's incursion into the past in the 2009 Star Trek movie (starting with "Rebirth" in the PopApostle ST chronology). It was published by IDW as the 6-part mini-series Star Trek/Green Lantern (2016-2017) a cross-over of the characters of Star Trek and those of the various Lantern Corps from the DC Universe of comic books published by DC Comics. Stranger Worlds follows the events of the first Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover, The Spectrum War.

 

This mini-series takes place in an alternate timeline than the one followed in the main PopApostle Star Trek chronology of the Kelvin Timeline.

Didja Notice?

 

On page 3, Hal Jordan asks the Manhunters to cease their attack on the Enterprise by the laws inscribed in the Book of Oa. The Book of Oa is a massive tome housed in the Citadel on Oa, relating the history of the Guardians of the Universe and the Green Lantern Corps.

 

On page 4, the leader of the Manhunters facing Hal Jordan, says, "No man escapes the Manhun--". The phrase "No man escapes the Manhunters" is the code of the Manhunters and is oft repeated by them.

 

The Augment follower of Khan called Malik previously appeared in "Khan" Part 3.

 

On page 19, Larfleeze eats targ and drinks bloodwine. Targs are boar-like creatures of Qo'noS. Bloodwine is a potent Klingon alcoholic beverage, best served warm.

 

Unanswered Questions

 

It's not shown how Khan was able to beat up Atrocitus and take his ring. It seems unlikely unless Atrocitus' ring happened to have a power glitch at some moment, leaving him unprotected from Khan's raw physical strength.
