If there had ever been an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation that deserved a sequel, Morgan Gendel’s “The Inner Light” would be at the top of the list. Over the course of its seven seasons, we were treated to several such episodes, almost all of which served as a season finale. Instead, the studio felt single episodes would befit the series’ syndicated format. While it’s a shame we never had a chance to revisit any of our favorite plots while the series was airing, Gendel recently decided to pen a sequel to published online as a series of webcomics.
Last night, TrekMovie.com published the first chapter of the eleven part series, titled “The Outer Light” written by Morgan Gendel & Andre Duza. The four-page chapter features art by Don Ellis Aguillo — if you’re interested, you can check out more of Don’s work at his official site. The next chapter in the series will be published later this month, exclusively at TrekMovie.com.
