Cyberspace, the Final Frontier. These are the TREK TUESDAYS voyages of the website 13th Dimension. Its ongoing mission: to explore strange new stories about Star Trek during its 50th anniversary year, to seek out new angles and new ideas every week, to boldly go where plenty of people have gone before, but in a funky, fresh, interesting way…

I really dug the variant covers Tony Shasteen did for Star Trek: Manifest Destiny, the four-part mini from IDW in which the new-timeline Enterprise crew battles rogue Klingons.

Each variant cover was a riff on classic Trek movie posters, but instead of Shatner, Nimoy, et al, we got Pine, Quinto, et al.

For example:

Since Manifest Destiny was only four parts, we only got to see “posters” up to Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. That’s where retailer variants come in.

Check out this SNEAK PEEK at Francesco Francavilla’s retailer exclusive for Issue #1, which is a take-off on Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
