Looks like more and more companies are following the new trend of releasing manga series with their US movie tie-ins. The newest abuser is of course, Star Trek, the manga. For those 'in the know' with the Star Trek scene, I'm told it will be based on The New Generation series from TV.

Something just doesn't feel right about all this though, but I guess, it must have a market, or else they wouldn't make them, right?...

Which leaves us asking, what's next? Terminator Salvation? Angels and Demons? Fast and the Furious? Only time will tell.

US mangakas should really be thinking of bringing new ideas instead of recreating old "comics" into new ones..

I don't watch nor read it.
Star Trek is too nerdy for me.
And, fans who reenact it makes it more unconvincing for me to watch it.
