I was meandering through DeviantArt today, and I happened to see this comment by a member who was discussing Data's death:


 


"I'm so so so so glad they made a CANNON comic where he [Data] returns through B4 with the help of Geordi!"


 


Is there such a comic? To what comic is she referring, does anyone know? If it is legitimate, can this be bought or read online? 


Thanks!

Yes, it is Countdown.  It makes a nice link between Nemesis and ST09 but is no more canon than any book.  I don't even know if the relaunch books are going to agree with it. You can find a bound edition of the series at a book store.


 


The STO book "Needs of the Many" has a great account of how he was brought back as told by Geordi.  It isn't worth buying, but worth picking up at the book store just for the chapter where Geordi tells the story.

What is canon for ST09 is also for prime universe since the movie is completely an alternate dimension.  Countdown is entirely prime unoverse (and not in THEIR timeline), ending at the moment the movie starts.  So if the comic is canon for the franchise, then the events are to happen.  However, nothing in print is ever canon.  This is unlikely to change. 


 


The Nero comic can be treated with more respectability since it is entirely in the Abramsverse.  I hope that Countdown's continuity is respected, I certainly think it should be, which is why I started the "Next Captain of the Enterprise" thread.
