Writers Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly, joined by artist Stephen Thompson, are back today with Star Trek: Year Five #2, the second chapter in their comic-book miniseries for IDW Publishing. The new adventure follows the classic U.S.S. Enterprise crew as they warp toward the end of their five-year mission. In a recent video interview with StarTrek.com, Kelly called "getting to bring the crew home" an "incredible responsibility," and he described Year One as "the bridge between The Original Series and The Motion Picture, and the entire legacy of Star Trek."
