Star Trek Month Announced at Amazon

Star Trek Day may have passed, but there's still celebration to be had for Star Trek fans thanks to Amazon.com. CBS, Paramount, Amazon, and IDW Publishing today announced that November is Star Trek month at the online retailer. Beginning November 1, 2020, Amazon will host a month-long Star Trek promotion where fans can get their hands on a free digital comic book from IDW when buying select Star Trek home media products. There are three free digital Star Trek comics from IDW Publishing that fans can acquire through Amazon’s comiXology throughout the month. All they need to do is $25 or more on select Star Trek products on Amazon.com.

The free comics are the debut issues of some recent Star Trek offerings from IDW. One is a Star Trek: Picard tie-in, another a Star Trek: Discovery tie-in. The third continues the adventures of the Star Trek: The Original Series crew. They are:

  • Star Trek: Picard - Countdown #1 – Witness the events leading to CBS All Access’s Star Trek: Picard. Before he retired to his vineyard, Jean-Luc Picard was the most decorated admiral in Starfleet, then one mission changed his life forever.
  • Star Trek: Year Five #1 – Step aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise with Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Sulu, Scotty and Chekov as they start the last year of their original five-year mission and boldly go into an uncertain future.

  • Star Trek: Discovery: Aftermath #1 – Fans saw the stunning conclusion of Star Trek: Discovery: Season Two - now they can witness the aftermath! Following the discovery of Michael Burnham’s personal log, Spock begins to unravel the story of Burnham’s journey from orphan to Starfleet officer - and the secret history of the Red Angel.
