Our STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN prequel to next summer's movie launches in January. Up until now, we've had to keep things under wraps, but today the official press release announcing the 4-part series gets released, along with an image showing the four covers from series artist David Messina. Here are those images, which emulate the movie's teaser posters and form one larger image when combined. The series is plotted and based on a story by Kurtzman & Orci, written by Mike Johnson & Tim Jones and presided over by J.J. Abrams. This'll be the only lead-in story to the movie itself, and it tells a pretty epic story. Based on the 20 minutes of footage of the movie that we saw last week, this'll be quite a story when all is said and done. The first chapter is up for pre-order in the current issue of PREVIEWS.
