Captain Saru; we love the sound of that, and it'll be a reality in February, 2019, when IDW Publishing releases Star Trek: Discovery: Captain Saru, a special one-shot comic book featuring the talents of writers Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson and artists Angel Hernandez and Paul Shipper. Hernandez handles the inside art, while Shipper has created the cover... which is pleased to share an exclusive first look at today.



Captain Saru is an all-new Discovery adventure that ties directly into season one of the CBS All Access show. In it, soon after the events on Qo'noS, the Discovery receives an urgent distress call from someone from Tilly’s past. It’s up to Saru to lead the crew against this amazing alien threat in his first mission as acting captain.

Star Trek: Discovery: Captain Saru will run 48 pages.
