Hoping for new Star Trek: TNG? Then you're about to get your wish

Though it's one of the most beloved franchises in sci-fi history, fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation have been left to wonder exactly what has been going on with Capt. Picard and company in the decades since the series went off the air. Well, wonder no more.

Sadly, it won't be coming to TV or the big screen—but IDW has announced it has a new comic series based on arguably the most popular edition of the Trek franchise: Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Even better? They've booked former Trek mastermind Brannon Braga to write and mastermind the series, which will focus on a new encounter with fan-favorite baddie the Borg.

"It's a thrill and privilege to be writing in the Star Trek universe again," Braga said via TG Daily. "This graphic medium will provide the narrative ambition and visual scope this story deserves -- the final chapter in The Borg saga!"

Here's the synopsis for the first installment in the new run:
In a distant future, where the deadly Borg have assimilated the entire Galaxy, Picard, his crew, and some unexpected allies must prove once and for all that resistance is not futile! Packed with mind-bending twists, time-jumping action, and revered, genre-defining characters, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION: HIVE promises to be a must-read event for fans of the TNG's intrepid legacy.
The series is set for release in September, in honor of the show's 25th anniversary.
