In the epic finale of IDW's new hit mini-series, past and present collide as the new crew finds the most unlikely allies in the heart of uncharted space. Can they finally come together and change the future of Starfleet forever?


In the year 2258, Cadet Uhura discovered a secret at the heart of Starfleet. Now, in 2261, a new group of cadets has come face to face with that secret: the Starship U.S.S. Slayton, thought to be lost for a century. While the rest of the Federation continues to celebrate the Academy Centenial with a scavenger hunt in space, these cadets just hope to make it home alive...

Log entriesEdit

Cadet's log, supplemental. 
Logic is the cornerstone of my people. We rely on structure and reasoning to temper our spirit and guide our actions.
Unfortunately, logic leaves little room for exception.
It was reasonable to expect my school interactions would remain strictly academic, and unlikely I would find cadets who both challenged and engaged me. It was "logical" for me to return home.
Yet it is for these reasons that I have requested Professor Trumble withdraw my transfer petition, so that I may remain at Starfleet Academy.
Only time will tell if I have made the right decision.
Grace and Lucia have returned to Taiwan and Columbia to spend the hiatus visiting their families.
Shev and Vel have departed on what they are calling a "road trip" to the southern metropolis of Los Angeles.
I am content to continue my studies...
... Undisturbed...?
