Learn the backstory of Grudge the Cat with IDW’s new ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ comic miniseries

To christen the new year in style, IDW Publishing is striking off two-thousand years into the far future with a bold new “Star Trek: Discovery” limited series titled “Adventures in the 32nd Century.” This cat-tastic offering kicks off with a tale of Book’s mysterious feline Grudge and is centered around the daring exploits of The United Federation of Planets as presented by the hit sci-fi “Star Trek” series on Paramount Plus.

The four-issue release (which you can pre-order in e-book form on Amazon) is a homecoming of sorts for co-writers Kirsten Beyer and Mike Johnson, who collaborated together on number of IDW “Star Trek: Discovery” comics like “The Light of Kahless,” “Succession,” and “Aftermath.” Here they’re accompanied by artist Angel Hernandez, whose contributions to “Star Trek/Green Lantern: The Spectrum War” and “Star Trek: Manifest Destiny” have built an acclaimed reputation for his dynamic renderings on the page.

“Discovery’s arrival in the 32nd century opens up a whole new universe of adventure for the crew, from the feline to the Saurian,” Johnson noted in an official press release. “It’s a blast telling stories eight hundred years in the future of ‘Star Trek,’ where we really have never been before, exploring different facets of their lives.”
