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?

 

On pages 4-5, the words spoken by Hal, John, Guy, and Kilowog as they recharge their rings are the Green Lantern oath.

 

On page 13, Khan says he knows that Kirk has Augment blood in him now. Dr. McCoy created a serum of Khan's blood which was injected into Kirk's dead body, resuscitating him, near the end of Star Trek Into Darkness. It's not clear how Khan would know about this, though his Red Lantern ring may have been able to detect it.

 

Carol Ferris seems to have determined that she can recharge her Violet ring, powered by the emotion love, without a battery, simply because she is surrounded by such loving people aboard the Enterprise.

 

At the end of the issue, Hal and Kirk begin exploring space together as Green Lanterns and Hal remarks to Kirk that he noticed an interesting star system in the Enterprise's star charts that Starfleet hasn't checked out yet, one definitely worth checking out and which has a big red sun. He is presumably referring to the red sun Rao, the home star of the planet Krypton, origin world of Superman.
