You might know this yet, but there is a new Star Trek film coming out in theaters this July called "Star Trek Beyond." The trailer for the film is supposed to debut at the Star Trek fan event on May 20th!

Arriving in stores on June 28th is the newest comic tie-in Star Trek: Manifest Destiny by Mike Johnson and Ryan Parrott, which is set into between Star Trek Into Darkness and Star Trek Beyond.

The 136-page comic kicks off with a huge Klingon fleet lead by Commander Sho'Tokh invading a planet and they claim it in the name of the Klingon Empire.

A month later the U.S.S. Enterprise receives a strange beacon from a class-M planet, so Captain Kirk sends down an away team to investigate. Of course there is danger on the planet that puts the team in jeopardy. Meanwhile, a Klingon D7 attacks the Enterprise.

Final Thoughts: While the Klingons were shown briefly in Star Trek Into Darkness, most fans wanted to see more of the new incarnation of the race. The galley that I reviewed only has the first 24 pages in it. In this comic, we get to see what true Klingons are - deadly warriors that want nothing more than to conquer worlds. While the plot is very thin, "Manifest Destiny" is a decent beginning to a bigger arc; just when it starts to get interesting, it ends on a cliffhanger. The illustrations by Angel Hernandez are well-done. The entire paperback contains all 4 issues as well as a bonus Klingon Language version of the first issue. Overall, I enjoyed reading Star Trek: Manifest Destiny and I recommend other fans.
