"Set eight years after Star Trek Nemesis".

Spock says that he come on Romulus 40 years, that is before episode Unification which is some 10 years before Nemesis. So this comic is set some 30 years after Star Trek Nemesis. (talk) 17:30, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Keep in mind I haven't read it, just what I've gathered from reviews. If you've read it, could you clarify further details including what the Remans are up to? Alientraveller (talk) 12:27, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Lend Lease[edit]

"The Vulcans refuse to lend their weapon to the Romulans, although Hobus threatens the entire universe." Not particularly charitable (or logical) of them. Why don't they lend it??? Thanks. (talk) 21:20, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Threatening the universe seems a bit off. the Nova would destroy the Romulan home system which would destroy their empire...sending the alpha quadrent into chaos...but the universe? Template:Usnigned
Yes, they do say it threatens the universe. It is a mutant supernova, not some failing in our plot summary. :) Alientraveller (talk) 19:09, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
No, they say it threatens the Romulan Empire, but even that is bad science, since Hobus is the star of an uninhabited solar system at the edge of Romulan space. I've only read the first two issues, but it's pretty clear they are not making the incredible claims you say they are. The term "mutant supernova" is completely meaningless. Stars do not mutate, mutation is a process that occurs in lifeforms that possess a cellular structure. It's not something that happens to gaseous masses undergoing fusion. I'm willing to waive a call of bad science on the "instant supernova" concept, since it seems so widespread in soft science fiction and science fantasy, but if the writers actually claim that the star has mutated and that a supernova of all things can actually threaten anything outside its own solar system, then I think we need to add a source that responds to the bad science perpetrated here. Perhaps a published review by someone with science credentials. (talk) 19:40, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Continuity errors?[edit]

It seems like with the release of the movie Star Trek this no longer stands as being "canon", i.e. how the movie seems to change the Jellyfish's origin from being built by Geordi La Forge to the Vulcan Science Academy. Shouldn't a list of likewise errors be included?--DrWho42 (talk) 18:51, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

I noticed that, but this comic was never canon: I know we'd like it to be though. Alientraveller (talk) 22:42, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I think the film only mentions that it was commissioned by the Vulcan Science Academy, which I suppose leaves some room for the comic's backstory. just64helpin (talk) 13:07, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Hardcover Release[edit]

I have added the upcoming hardcover release to the main article, but I don't know how to add its ISBN to the summary box on the top-right corner. Can someone do that? AstérixSméagol (talk) 14:11, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
