Didja Know?

 

Stranger Worlds is a 6-part Star Trek story set in the Kelvin Timeline created by the Romulan Nero's incursion into the past in the 2009 Star Trek movie (starting with "Rebirth" in the PopApostle ST chronology). It was published by IDW as the 6-part mini-series Star Trek/Green Lantern (2016-2017) a cross-over of the characters of Star Trek and those of the various Lantern Corps from the DC Universe of comic books published by DC Comics. Stranger Worlds follows the events of the first Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover, The Spectrum War.

 

This mini-series takes place in an alternate timeline than the one followed in the main PopApostle Star Trek chronology of the Kelvin Timeline.

Didja Notice?

 

Page 1 states that John, Guy, and Kilowog are buried under 25 tons of parsteel. In the ST: TNG episode "The Measure Of A Man", parsteel was a metal alloy with a tensile strength of 40 kilobars.

 

On page 9, Sinestro gives his first name as Thaal. This was previously established in DC comic books.

 

On page 16, Spock states, "...in my time on the Enterprise, I have come to believe that no scenario is truly...unwinnable." This, of course, is a play on Kirk's statement in the original ST timeline that he doesn't believe in no-win scenarios in the movie Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan.

 

On page 17, the Klingon homeworld is spelled "Kronos", though the past issues of the mini-series have used the Klingon Qo'noS spelling. The remaining issues also start using "Kronos".

 

On page 19, Sinestro tells the Guardians that he knows about the terrible being they trapped inside the central power battery. This being is Parallax, the physical embodiment of fear established in stories of the DC universe.
