In 2017, the crew of the Enterprise will take on xenomorphs in Star Trek: The Next Generation / Aliens, IDW announced today at MCM London Comic Con.

The miniseries will be written by Scott Tipton and David Tipton and drawn by J.K. Woodward. The trio have partnered on Trek before, with Harlan Ellison’s City on the Edge of Forever, an adaptation of Ellison’s teleplay for one of the original Star Trek’s most beloved episodes (see “IDW Adapts Harlan Ellison's Original 'Star Trek' Script”).

IDW and Dark Horse Comics’ Star Trek: The Next Generation / Aliens comes out in Spring 2017, in conjunction with TNG’s 30th Anniversary. Next spring will also be big for Aliens, as Dark Horse has planned a new series and collection for release in conjunction with April’s Alien Day celebrations (see “Xenomorphs Multiply in New 'Alien' Comic and Collection”).
