IDW - One Shots

.

Flesh and Stone
A low-warp escape pod approaches Space Station Diamandis 1. Typically used to ferry sick or wounded from remote locations, the pod is coming to the right place, host of a large Starfleet medical conference. Traveling to the conference via shuttle, Dr. Beverly Crusher, Dr. Julian Bashir, and Dr. Katherine Pulaski, monitor a distress signal from Diamandis 1. The Doctor, formerly Voyager's Chief Medical Officer, informs them of an unknown contagion carried by four humans in an escape pod, that has incapacitated all station personnel. The disease paralyzes, then begins transforming the victim into a stone-like substance. Four more escape pods are heading towards populated worlds and the Doctor also discovers that records related to the disease have been deleted from the station's medical database. The oldest record deleted was recorded by the Constitution-class Enterprise. Since Admiral McCoy is still alive and living on a nearby agricultural facility, the doctors divert their shuttle hoping to learn more about the disease. McCoy has retired to what amounts to a frontier town, but is as sharp and irascible as ever. He recalls the incident deleted from the medical database. The Enterprise answered a colony distress call from Doctor Phlox, asking for help treating victims of the same disease. Phlox and McCoy learned that the stone-like substance resembles the Tholian crystalline carapace and were able to create the anti-viral necessary for treatment. Armed with this information, the Doctor is able to synthesize the antivirus, begin treating victims, and warn Starfleet. Exceeding his programming as usual, the Doctor also does some detective work to learn why the contagion was directed at Diamandis 1 and averts a crisis. Even Dr. Pulaski is impressed.

50th Anniversary Cover Celebration

Introduction by Mike Johnson
No wroter wants to admit it, but a cover can make or break you. Prose, poems, pop-ups, definitely comic books: a great cover cuts through the noise on the shelf and casts a spell: Pick me! It takes a special talent. From daring concept to skillful execution, an artist has to capture the heart of the book while catching the eye of the reader. Fortunately for Star Trekwriters our planet is bursting with talented artists. What begins as a fleeting of story in the writer's brain is brought to vibrant life by these gifted visualists, each with their own unique style and approach. Iconic portraits of your favorite characters? Look inside. Movie-poster-worthy paintings of strange new words? Scratch that. Movies wish they had posters like this. Starfleet recruitment ads. Boldly-designed evocations of classic episodes. Mind-bending crossovers between Star Trek and other beloved franchises. You'll find a special selection of them all in these pages, spanning the history of Star Trek comics at IDW. So in the words of that beloved Earl Grey-quaffing starship captain. Engage! And enjoy.
