Is it November yet? Apparently it is over at the offices of IDW Publishing, as they've just given details about their upcoming Trek titles for November... as well an exclusive First Looks at the cover art for the books. The fun starts with Star Trek #51: Five-Year Mission, written by Mike Johnson, with Tony Shasteen handling the art and cover. In it, the Mirror Universe epic continues as the evil counterparts of the Enterprise crew gain the upper hand. Captain Kirk finds himself allied with the mysterious man known only as Singh, while Spock comes face to face with his deceased mother... now alive and well in the Mirror Universe. Star Trek #51: Five Year Mission will run 32 pages and cost $3.99. A subscription variant will feature a cover by Lorelei Bunjes.

Star Trek: New Adventures, Vol. 2 will gather together stories and art by writers Mike Johnson, F. Leonard Johnson, Ryan Parrott and artists Stephen Molnar, Erfan Fajar, Hendri Prasetyo, Miralti Firmansyah and Claudia Balboni, with Shipper beaming up cover honors for this title. Vol. 2 follows the new adventures of the Starship Enterprise, with stories focusing on the current crew in the alternate timeline that take place between the first and second movies. The story "After Darkness" picks up where Star Trek Into Darkness left off. Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness co-writer/co-producer Roberto Orci oversaw each book. Vol. 2, which collects issues #13–24 of the ongoing Star Trek series, will run 288 pages and cost $29.99.

Star Trek/Green Lantern #5 (of 6) is written by Mike Johnson, with Angel Hernandez providing the art and David Williams rendering the cover. In it, the galactic civil war reaches a critical point as the Yellow Lantern Klingons, Orange Lantern Romulans and Red Lantern Gorn fight for supremacy, with Hal Jordan, James T. Kirk, and the crew of the Enterprise caught in the middle. It's a dark night for the Federation... and the arrival of Nekron and his Black Lanterns will only make things worse. Star Trek/Green Lantern #5 (of 6) will run 32 pages and cost $3.99. Fans should be on the lookout for two variants, one a Tess Fowler (Rat Queens) cover and the other a connecting subscription variant with a cover by Garry Brown. Actually, there are six connecting variant covers from Brown, one for every issue, forming one giant image.

Lastly, there's Star Trek New Visions: The Hollow Man, the latest book written by and featuring the photo-manipulation mastery of John Byrne. In it, a mysterious message draws Mr. Spock on a solo mission to a distant part of the Federation, where an old friend awaits, as does as a menace with the potential to threaten the entire galaxy. The Hollow Man will run 48 pages and cost $7.99.
