IDW will publish a prequel to the video game Star Trek Resurgence that will set the stage for the action in the game. Co-written by two of the game’s writers, Andrew Grant and Dan Martin, with art by Josh Hood, the five-issue limited series will depict the events that lead up to the storyline of the game.

The video game is being developed by Dramatic Labs for the PC, PlayStation, and XBox platforms and is slated for release later this year. Set in the year 2380, just after the Star Trek: The Next Generation films, it features a new ship, the U.S.S. Resolute, and an all-new cast.

IDW’s Star Trek Resurgence follows the crew of the Resolute as they search for a missing scientist who was on the verge of a major technological breakthrough. The first issue will be released in November with three covers: Cover A by Hood, Cover B by Dramatic Labs, and a retailer incentive variant by Malachi Ward.
