The Next Generation’s android crewman was pretty efficient. So when his best friend is the captain of a starship, why wouldn’t he just get himself an entire crew of Datas to staff it? See how delightful that is in a new preview from IDW’s incoming Star Trek anthology series, right now!

Each issue will feature two stories, from a rotating cast of writers and artists, with issue one featuring a post-Next Generation tale from Donny Cates and Mack Chater, and an original Trek story about Uhura from writer/artist Sandra Lanz. Check out the first few pages from Cates and Chater’s story, “Puzzles,” making its debut here on io9.

Darn robot taking all the jobs!

Though it is a little weird they have human/aliens elsewhere on the ship but just Captain and ship AI on the bridge.

Also huge cubes, the most advanced form of ship apparently. We should start investigating those for our space program.
