IDW Publishing has given several of their popular comic book series -- including Transformers, The X-Files and G.I. Joe -- the alternate-timeline treatment via their Deviations one-shots. And now it's Star Trek's turn, or it will be come March 2017.
Here's the synopsis of Star Trek: Deviations:
In a world where the Romulans discovered Earth before the Vulcans, Earth is now a brutal penal colony. Resistance fighter William Riker has uncovered a vast conspiracy, and together with his band of prisoner outlaws (you just might recognize a few), must fight to rescue a mysterious prisoner in the darkest level of the Romulan dungeons. The only man on Earth that still holds the key to humanity’s return to the stars.
