The IDW Year Five Tie-In supplement includes:

  • Details on two new factions
  • Three new player character lifepath options (including the Tholians and I’Qosa)
  • Twelve non-player characters (including Harry Mudd and Gary Seven)
  • Five starships to use as allies or adversaries

On IDW’s Year Five Comic Book Series:

The series goes beyond the canon established in the Star Trek television series and films to tell the story of the final year of the U.S.S. Enterprise’s five-year mission under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. All the classic characters are in a state of transition. They know the end of an era is approaching and are making plans for what they’ll do after the conclusion of the mission. The series features imaginative new elements as well as putting new spins on some classic species and characters.
