A logical progression
Since some people thought the "Hailing Frequencies" reference yesterday was going to lead to a STAR TREK mention, I figured I'd make up for that today by showing David Messina's cover to his coming STAR TREK: SPOCK: REFLECTIONS book, also being solicited for release in July. I'd call this Messina's follow-up to STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN if he hadn't already been doing ANGEL: SMILE TIME and working on another ANGEL miniseries. So let's call SPOCK *one of* his COUNTDOWN follow-ups (although it's set in the period just ahead of COUNTDOWN, and looks back over his entire life and career). It's written by Messina's frequent co-horts, Scott & David Tipton, too.
And then there's that other "Messina STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN follow-up" project that we haven't announced yet. But more on that soon.
