Four Star Trek comics are on tap for this October from IDW Publishing.

The comics include three new comics and one omnibus.

Star Trek #38 continues the Q story. In part four of The Q Gambit, “Captain Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise find themselves in a true no-win scenario thanks to the mischievous Q! Trapped in a dark future, at the mercy of the mighty Dominion, this adventure might prove to be their last!”

Written by Mike Johnson, Star Trek #38 features art and cover by Tony Shasteen. A subscription variant cover will also be available for the issue.

Next up is the fifth part of Harlan Ellison’s The City on the Edge of Forever, The Original Teleplay. In this issue, read “The final act of Harlan Ellison’s Hugo and WGA Award-winning Star Trek teleplay! Is James T. Kirk willing to sacrifice the woman he loves, to save the universe as he knows it?! You may have seen the episode, but you only think you know how it ends!”

Written by Harlan Ellison, Scott and David Tipton, the issue features art by J.K. Woodward and a cover by Juan Ortiz. A variant subscription cover features art by Paul Shipper.

The third comic for October is New Visions #3: Cry Vengeance. In this issue, “John Byrne continues his new Star Trek photonovel adventures with two tales for the price of one, as the crew of the Starship: Enterprise faces a menace three millions years in the making, plus something more recent but no less deadly. Presenting a follow-up to the classic episode The Doomsday Machine, as well as Robot, a brand-new tale of murder and mystery.”

Cry Vengeance was written, photo-manipulated, and features a cover all by John Byrne.

Finally, a New Visions omnibus will features “all-new TOS episodes like you’ve never seen them before! Including the 2013 photonovel Annual, Strange New Worlds, as well as the feature-length stories The Mirror Cracked, and Time’s Echo – done in all-new fumetti style by one of the greatest living comic book artists! (John Byrne).
