The characters of Star Trek Discovery are all more than worthy of a one-shot, but right now, as his entire existence continues to change post-ganglia fall out, perhaps Saru is the one most ripe for deeper investigation as IDW bring us their Star Trek: Discovery - Captain Saru one-shot.

Housed behind a gorgeous Paul Shipper cover, this issue gives us insight into Saru the cpatain as he takes temporary command of the Discovery.

Soon after the events on Q’onoS, the U.S.S. Discovery receives a distress call from someone from Tilly’s past. In his first mission as acting captain, it’s up to Commander Saru to lead the crew against this sinister alien threat. That’s the premise of Star Trek: Discovery - Captain Saru, the latest Discovery title from IDW Publishing. Available tomorrow, the standalone is written by Kristen Beyer & Mike Johnson, who’d previously collaborated on IDW’s The Light of Kahless and Succession. Artist Angel Hernandez tackles the panels, and a Paul Shipper illustration graces the cover.

The Star Trek: Discovery - Captain Saru one-shot is 48 pages and costs $7.99.
