It’s the ultimate Star Trek mashup, as Captain Kirk crosses paths with fellow captains Picard, Janeway and Sisko in Star Trek: The Q Conflict, a six-part comic-book event series coming in January from IDW Publishing. The saga, which pits the iconic characters against each other – and marks the first-ever crossover between The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager -- is written by the tandem of Scott and David Tipton (Star Trek: The Next Generation – Mirror Broken), and features art by David Messina (Cloak and Dagger, Star Trek: Countdown).

Here’s the official synopsis, via IDW: “When a dispute between godlike beings threatens the galaxy, it will take all of Starfleet’s best captains to stop them. James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Kathryn Janeway, and Benjamin Sisko must go head-to-head in a competition rigged by the arrogant Q and his nigh-omnipotent cohorts.”

Star Trek: The Q Conflict #1 will be available with multiple covers: connecting regular covers by David Messina, as well as retailer incentive variants by George Caltsoudas and J.K. Woodward.
