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 1, Dr. McCoy says, "Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a soothsayer!"

 

Also on page 1, Spock reminds McCoy that besides protecting Federation space, the Enterprise is also sworn to "explore strange new worlds". Of course, this line is part of the iconic opening preamble of the original Star Trek TV series.

 

The female Guardian called Sayd seen here has also appeared in various DC comics stories, where she is currently the Guardian of the Orange Lantern Corps.

 

At the end of this issue, the Guardians' new ring chooses Kirk as this reality's first Green Lantern.
