Star Trek: Year Five - Weaker Than Man (Book 3) is the third volume in the omnibus collection of IDW Publishing's Star Trek: Year Five comic series. It is scheduled to be released in May 2021.


Join the crew of the original Starship Enterprise in these all-new adventures near the end of their five-year mission.
The Enterprise and her crew finally make it back to Federation space, but the Federation they find isn't quite the same as the one they had left behind! Kirk grapples with a very personal Klingon threat, even as the Enterprise begins its homecoming victory tour, and the Federation's upcoming presidential election is upended when Harry Mudd enters the race!
All this against the backdrop of a sinister malaise threatening to rot the Federation from within. Terrible secrets are revealed, among them the origin of Gary Seven and the grand designs of the shadowy AEGIS organization. Can Kirk and the Enterprise crew excise this corruption, or will the five-year mission end in failure?
Collects issues #13-19 of the ongoing series by writers Jackson Lanzing, Collin Kelly, Jody Houser, and Jim McCann with artists Angel Hernández, Silvia Califano, and J.K. Woodward.
