IDW Publishing will visit the dark side of Star Trek in three upcoming one-shots.
Captain Janeway and the crew of the Voyager are heading into the Mirror Universe in a new one-shot from IDW Publishing. Star Trek: Voyager: Mirrors and Smoke will introduce us to Pirate Queen Janeway in the twisted alternate universe that the Mirror Universe provides.
IDW has beamed up Paul Allor and J.K. Woodward to serve as the creative team.
“As a child, Star Trek taught me about the power of exploration, the value of kindness and empathy, and the triumph of intelligence and logic over violence and anger… and now, I am so excited to throw all of those values out the window and tell the story of the Mirror Universe Voyager crew pillaging and plundering its way across the far reaches of space!” Allor said.

Ghostbusters, My Little Pony, Star Trek and more head back to the future (or the past) in January.
At this week’s New York Comic Con, IDW announced IDW 20/20 — five one-shots featuring some of their licensed properties that will celebrate the publisher’s 20-year history.
Featuring Ghostbusters, Jem and the Holograms, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek and My Little Pony, each story will be set either 20 years in the past or 20 years in the future.
“An anniversary like the one IDW is celebrating is a cause to look to the future and the past,” said IDW Editor-in-Chief John Barber. “It gives us a moment to reflect on where came from and where we’re going, because both directions are pretty exciting. We’re lucky to have partners like Hasbro, Nickelodeon, CBS Consumer Products, and Sony to share in the celebration — and to have these five sets of characters that have helped place IDW at the center of the pop culture universe!”
