IDW Publishing has just announced a September debut for a blockbuster bi-monthly anthology to celebrate Star Trek's 50th anniversary. Star Trek: Waypoint #1 (of 6) will feature short stories -- spanning the Trek franchise -- as created by the top talent of yesterday and today.

First up is a Next Generation tale by Donny Cates, with art by Mack Chater and a Marc Laming cover. Unable to decipher a mysterious ship's coded messages, Starfleet has enlisted its two greatest scientific minds, Captain Geordi La Forge and his best friend Data, to investigate. What they discover will alter the course of scientific human history as we know it.
Next, there's "Daylily," an Original Series adventure by Sandra Lanz, with Lanz also rendering the art. In it, a crewmember becomes stranded on a strange planet and encounters a bizarre alien creature. The two must learn to interact, but how?

Star Trek: Waypoint #1 (of 6) will run 40 pages and cost $4.99.
