Along with Lanzing and Kelly, the writers’ room boasted the skills of Jody Houser, Brandon Easton, Jim McCann, and a one-shot Valentine’s Day particular by Paul Cornell. The artists on this collection included Stephen Thompson, Martin Coccolo, Silvia Califano, Christopher Jones, Angel Hernandez and one in all my private favorites: J.Okay. Woodward. The cowl of the inaugural situation was by the legendary Greg Hildebrandt. The crew of the odyssey was a wealthy and achieved one.
Sadly, it has to finish. (*55*)? “We ask ourselves the same ding-dang question!” Kelly solutions. “It’s been the highlight of our careers to write these characters. The nature of the title suggests that it has to, but it’s something we regret every day.”
“The power of the book comes from the fact that it does end,” Jackson provides. “We know that the story is ending. We know that it is a tragic story about Kirk giving up the captain’s chair. So, we knew that we were going to land somewhere poignant. Kirk giving up that chair is inherently poignant. So, the challenge is how poignant we can make it. The real power behind this story is turning around and going home and sadly, the odyssey has to end. It’s no good if he doesn’t get back to Ithaca.”
At the time of this text, Issue #20 is the present one. We have 4 extra points to go, with the finale coming in July. Jackson stories that he had acquired the artwork for Issue #24 and, with that, the ship is safely at port for him. For loyal readers who’re detest to see this collection finish, no less than there are extra points to learn and luxuriate in till then.
On social media, followers exclaim that it needs to be thought-about canon, excessive reward for writers who noticed the enchantment of this franchise to the level that they felt they needed to discover its origins, finally writing what some think about to be the defining story of this lacking interval. Not solely have they given followers one thing that’s acceptable however they’ve carried out it with the type of cautious observance the tv collection deserved.
However, each Lanzing and Kelly take effort to report that this is able to not be the final time they’re to be concerned in writing Star Trek. Perhaps we’d see them create tales inside TNG, Voyager or the different iterations that this franchise has created. In that, maybe we’ll see, and luxuriate in, different odysseys of their creation? If so, then right here’s to the subsequent journey.
