IDW - Star Trek: Picard's Academy

From New York Times-bestselling author Sam Maggs (Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars) comes a new six-part series unveiling the past of one of Starfleet's most celebrated officers: Captain Jean-Luc Picard!

Issue 1
Before becoming the Federation's finest, Jean-Luc was an ordinary student at Starfleet Academy with sights on the stars. His path forward was charted: blow his classmates out of the water on the infamous Evasive Maneuvers exam and graduate early. But there's a detail Cadet Picard hadn't factored into his plan: the exam was a group project and he'd need to make friends with, ugh, people if he stood a chance at passing. Federation starships aren't run by a party of one, after all!.

Issue 2
Class. Homework. Sleep. Repeat! Such is the life for Starfleet Academy star pupil Jean-Luc Picard. But if he’s to achieve his dream of an early graduation and his own crew, he’ll need to face his worst fear head on: making friends. But this doesn’t come easy for Jean-Luc, not when he’s got a bully like the Betazoid Resh calling out all his mistakes and a really cute girl named Marty making him nervous… and certainly not with guest professor Spock analyzing every step he takes!

Issue 3
It's practice day for the most important test of Cadet Picard's Starfleet Academy career thus far! His first test in actual space... and he is not ready. He may as well be yelling into a black hole after being put into a group with all his least favorite colleagues... and Marty, the girl he kind of, sort of likes. No one's listening to his commands, and he doesn't know how on Earth he's supposed to see eye-to-eye with Resh, his bully and competition for top of the class! Picard's course is set for failure, and if he can't figure out a way to change things soon... there goes his future.

Time's up! It's Evasive Maneuvers exam day, the only shot Picard has at graduating early... and getting off Earth and far away from home. He's as ready as he can be and actually feels like he can trust some of his group partners. But little does he know, their first test in space will bring an unexpected challenge--one the cadets would never find in their textbooks!

Starfleet's Evasive Maneuvers exam has turned into an actual battle for survival as Jean-Luc and his classmates find themselves facing the very real threat of death by vacuum of space! They can't reach Starfleet, and enemy Romulans continue invading their ship. Can Picard and his crewmates outmaneuver the enemy in their first-ever ship-on-ship space battle, or will he, in his first role as acting captain, succumb to the chaos and shouting matches among his crew?

It's do-or-die for Picard and cadets in the finale of Picard's Academy! Romulans storm the ship while Starfleet remains out of reach and potentially unaware of the threat headed their way, but the cadets have finally come to an agreement, electing Jean-Luc to the captain's chair. They're finally willing to follow Picard's lead, and Picard is finally willing to acknowledge their feedback--now acting as a proper crew. But is it too late? Will Picard fail his crewmates once again and, worse yet, see the start of an interstellar war? So much for graduating early!
