New "Star Trek: Discovery: Succession" Comic to Launch in April

Another ‘Discovery’ comic miniseries in the works

There’s another Star Trek Discovery comic miniseries coming this April.  From Discovery writer Kirsten Beyer and co-written by Trek comic veteran Mike Johnson comes Star Trek: Discovery: Succession.  The two previously collaborated on IDW’s Star Trek: Discovery: The Light of Kahless comic series.

There’s no word yet on how many issues will be in the miniseries, but wrote that each issue will have a “ships of the line” cover and the first issue will also have a variant cover by George Caitsoudas.  Those will apparently provide our first look at Discovery’s new ships.

Issues will run at 32 pages in length and be priced at $3.99USD.  Expect them to appear on shelves in April 2018.

Whereas Star Trek Discovery: The Light of Kahless dealt with Chapter 1 and T’Kuvma’s history, the Star Trek: Discovery: Succession miniseries will have direct tie-ins with events in Chapter 2.  It will also focus around characters more directly involved in the series.

About Enrico Pastellio

Rico became a Star Trek fan after being introduced to it during Star Trek Enterprise's run. After finishing that series, he went back watching TNG, DS9, VOY, and most of the movies. He's a big fan of Star Trek (2009) for its action, but favors the cerebral nature of each tv series. When Rico first heard about the new Star Trek Discovery series (then just know as 'Star Trek'), he immediately wanted to start up a new site about the show. You can email him at
