(But -- since my Romulan's storyline takes place before the first TOS movie,
would all my lumpy-headed Klingons have the same brow pattern, as
they did in THE MOTION PICTURE?)

+++++++++++

Hmmm. Good question.

I asked Chris Ryall at IDW. The answer is "yes".

Makes sense as a transitional step toward ST: TMP, I suppose. The individual patterns didn't start showing up until ST III, which takes place some years after both TOS and TMP.

A fun element, if I do "go lumpy" for some Klingons, will be working up Bill
Theiss versions of their clothes. I don't think they will quite work in the
striped vests and sparkly pants, much as I love drawing those on the
"regular" Klingons.

It's going to be an interesting exercise, as my time frame moves away from
TOS, but still lies short of TMP.

One thing I wouldn't mind seeing is an explanation of how Klingons ended up appropriating the Bird-of-Prey motif for their ships.

It's odd how the Klingons and Romulans eventually traded characteristics, isn't it? "Honorable" Klingons flying Birds-of-Prey, and treacherous, cutthroat Romulans.

 

And, if any Starfleet personnel appear in the series, I'd not be surprised to seem some transitional elements there, too.

"Just have lumpy-heads mixed in with the
"normal" Klingons, without comment. "

This is just how I like it. Thanks for making it all about me. :)

Do you want to continue Crew discussion with Issue #2 here or should we start another thread?

Late to the party, due to shipping issues. 

Just got and read Crew #1 over the weekend.  Suffice to say I liked it even MORE than ANGEL. 

One of the best stories JB has EVER written. 

A comic that begs to be read again and again.

Wow!  What a fun read.
Loved the story, art, Klingons, and Enterprise!
Everything a Comic Book should be!

I finally found Crew #1 at That's Entertainment in Worcester, MA last week while I was on my way to pick up my daughter for her Christmas break from college.

Very late to the party, but my gift to myself today is to sit down and read the whole series (I found the rest earlier in the summer).

Issue Number One let's me know it has been worth the wait!  

Well done!

Weird, in my mind it is still a pretty "recent" release.

Seeing this thread is the perfect excuse for me to go back and reread CREW!

My only regret over CREW is that some of those stories were created for TOS, but I did not think I would ever have an opportunity to use them. That was before STNV was even a twinkle in my eye!

I'm sure somewhere in that brain, you could find another cool tale featuring Number One.

I'm sure too. But that wasn't my point. I was referring to tales used in CREW that I created originally to submit to TOS -- one of which I actually did. Altho it was returned unopened with a letter saying the could not read unsolicited scripts, it would be a hoot and a half to "produce" it now as an "episode" of STAR TREK NEW VISIONS.

Mr Byrne, you actually submitted scripts to Desilu/Paramount back in the day?

Mr. Byrne, with Star Trek Discovery coming very soon; are you open to returning to this world you'd crafted?

I suspect DISCOVERY and my "world" will be quite far apart.
