Wondercon last week brought some interesting reveals regarding Star Trek Year Five as well as information on a new Star Trek Discovery three part mini-series.

Trek Movie have the full details from a panel featuring Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing,  Jody Houser, Jim McCann, and Brandon Easton.

Later this month IDW launches Star Trek: Year Five, which is set to tell the untold story of the final year of the fabled 5-year mission from Star Trek: The Original Series. For this series, IDW is taking a page from how television shows are written by assembling a writers’ room, instead of having a single writer or team write the entire series, and some of those writers were at WonderCon to talk about what they have in store, along with editor Chase Marotz.

As the panel wrapped up, IDW editor Chase Marotz made a bit of a surprise announcement, revealing that in August IDW is launching a new mini-series tied into Star Trek: Discovery. During the panel, Marotz said he could not reveal anything about the story because the end of the second season has yet to wrap up, but he did say, “Prepare yourselves, this is going to be a fun one,” and that he is really excited about the initial work for the book.
