IDW - Star Trek: The Mirror War

For decades, Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation has represented an ideal of greatness to science fiction fandom, a character of intelligence, authority, and empathy. Beginning on September 9th, comic book and graphic novel publisher IDW invites readers to witness what the galaxy could be like at the mercy of a Captain Picard whose greatness is measured in cunning and cruelty, courtesy of an all-new event, Star Trek: The Mirror War.
Celebrated Star Trek comic writers Scott and David Tipton delve deep into the lore of the Mirror Universe, a perennial favorite concept amongst fans, in August’s Star Trek: The Mirror War #0, illustrated by Carlos Nieto. This zero issue features a new story of “Mirror Picard” as he’s summoned to Earth to face the wrath of his emperor, deftly weaving threads from past Mirror Universe tales in a way entertaining to newcomers and the initiated alike.

Following September’s #0 launch, the series will continue to build year-long tension with issues #1-8 and four interspersed tie-in specials, each highlighting a different member of the Next Generation cast. The first spin-off one-shot, slated for December, will focus on Data. Once complete, the 13-part saga will chart Mirror Picard’s path of conquest across all of the Mirror Universe, stoking the wrath of the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance along the way. “We’re absolutely thrilled to return to the Mirror Universe,” says Scott Tipton. “What’s in store for our Mirror Jean-Luc Picard and his Enterprise crew? New faces, new places, and old grudges. Picard’s ambitions are grander than ever, and nothing short of the throne itself will satisfy him! In The Mirror War, we’ll be seeing what happens when Picard gets hold of information that can change the fortunes of the debilitated Terran Empire,” says David Tipton. “The Enterprise crew will find themselves in positions of potential power and wealth like never before.”

Issue 0 - One-shot
A new story of “Mirror Picard” as he’s summoned to Earth to face the wrath of his emperor, deftly weaving threads from past Mirror Universe tales in a way entertaining to newcomers and the initiated alike.

There is the reality you know. And, on another dimensional plane, there exists a dark, twisted refflection of that universe. So familiar, and yet so different. An Empire in place of a Federation, where profit and power take precedence over peace and exploration…
The natural course of the Empire was changed by the interference of an interdimensional intruder who convinced a Vulcan Imperial officer that the Empire could not sustain itself and gave him the means to rise to power. Under Spock's logical command, the Empire entered an age of reform, enacting peaceful initiatives: disarmament , diplomacy, compromise.
But Spock's "enlightened" Empire was no match for the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, which overran the Empire, destroyed its fleet, and drove it cowering back to Earth, with rumors and propaganda spreading throughout the Alpha Quuadrant of the Empire's final demise.
These rumors, however, are untrue. A handful of Imperial ships still remain, intent on protecting Earth and what's left of the Empire. And commanding the  newest and most powerful of those ships is a man equally intent on seeing it rise again.
When last we saw Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D, they had just made an ill-fated attempt to raid the newly discovered alternate universe, leaving them to return home empty-handed with Security Officer Lieutenant Reginald Barclay thought lost in the interdimensional transport…
