This October, IDW and DC Comics will team up for Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes a six-issue miniseries penned by Chris Roberson and illustrated by art by Jeffrey and Philip Moy. Sadly, it doesn't look like Matter-Eater Lad will eat his way through a Tribble invasion.
Here's the synopsis of the miniseries, which was announced today at Comic-Con:
STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPERHEROES tells the tale of the original crew of the Starship Enterprise, who beam down to a planet only to discover that the planet isn't their intended destination, or even in the right universe. At the same time, a group of "Great Darkness Saga" Legionnaires inside a time sphere find themselves cast into the 23rd century, but it's not the 23rd century as they know it, either. STAR TREK/LEGION OF SUPERHEROES is a galaxy-spanning adventure that draws both teams together to face a menace that includes Khunds, Klingons, Borg, and other threats that aren't quite as they should be. The egalitarian United Planets in one universe and a United Federation of Planets in another is now the Imperial Planets of Terra, a dark empire focused on war and conquest, and that's just the beginning for this special series.
Can we at least have a finger-waggling duet of "Anything You Can Do" between Darkseid and Ricardo Montalbán? Also, the last time the Trek crew met superheroes, Wolverine was shamed.
