Star Trek Movie Prequel comes to iPhone, iPod touch

I don’t do a lot of plugging for iVerse stuff on Apple Gazette, but if you’re a Trekkie at all…you’re going to want to know about this…

The new “Star Trek” film has a lot of buzz. The latest trailer is one of the most popular downloads on Apple’s Movie Trailer website ever, and people are really getting excited about the new direction for the franchise. Long time fans, however, may be wondering what happened to the crew of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and how this new film could possibly tie into the old universe they know and love.

Well – have no fear Trekkies – because JJ Abrams and crew have answered that question in the form a 4 issue comic book mini-series called “Star Trek: Countdown”. The mini-series chronicles the origin of the new film’s villain – a Romulan named Nero. It turns out, he’s from the “Next Generation” Era, and the mini-series focuses on how he becomes the villain he is, and how the Next Generation crew plays a pivotal role in his life.

The mini series is a fantastic comic book – and thanks to IDW Publishing and iVerse Media, it is now available on the iPhone and iPod touch…for only $0.99 an issue (compared to $3.99 for the print comic).
