Star Trek: The Last Generation is a comics miniseries from IDW Publishing. The miniseries was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con on 26 July 2008. First published in November 2008, the miniseries falls under the Star Trek: Myriad Universes banner, and is one of a number of projects developed in partnership with Pocket Books, which developed the Myriad Universes concept.

Written by Andrew Steven Harris and illustrated by Gordon Purcell, the miniseries' premise centers around an alternate rendition of events in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, in which James T. Kirk fails to prevent the assassination of the Federation President, resulting in war breaking out between the Federation and the Klingon Empire. Ultimately, the Klingons conquer Earth. The miniseries takes places seventy years after these events – concurrent with the early seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and features alternate versions of Worf, Jean-Luc Picard, and Hikaru Sulu.

The official solicitation for issue #1 outlines the basic plot of the miniseries:

Starfleet is no more. The Federation lies in ruin. And the Klingons have conquered Earth. But a resistance, led by Jean-Luc Picard, seeks to free Humanity from Klingon rule. And now, finally, it may have the means to do it: An android named Data, who has scrutinized the timeline and discovered that things are not as they should be. A crucial moment, buried in the past, has gone awry–and as the Klingon warlord Worf closes in, time itself is running out… For the first time ever, IDW Publishing proudly joins forces with Simon & Shuster's [sic] Pocket Books division, to deliver a Myriad Universe title in conjunction with the Star Trek alternate-universe prose novels of the same name. Plus, a special bonus excerpt from one of the Myriad Universe novels!

Issue #1 was ad-free. [3]
