The Spectrum War is a 6-part Star Trek story set in the new timeline created by the Romulan Nero's incursion into the past in the 2009 Star Trek movie (starting with "Rebirth" in the PopApostle ST chronology). It was published as the 6-part mini-series Star Trek/Green Lantern, a cross-over of the characters of Star Trek and those of the various Lantern Corps from the DC Universe of comic books published by DC Comics.

 

This mini-series takes place in an alternate timeline than one followed in the main PopApostle Star Trek chronology.

Didja Notice?

 

On page 1, panel 2, a Xudarian Green Lantern is killed by a pair of Black Lanterns in Carol Ferris' flashback. The Xudarian may have been Tomar-Tu, the Green Lantern of the planet Xudar in the DC Universe.

 

On page 2, Spock refers to Carol Ferris as "Ms. Sapphire", but he should more properly call her "Ms. Ferris"; "Star Sapphire" is just her title.

 

On page 8, the Enterprise receives an S.O.S. from Starbase 12 in the Gamma 400 system as it is being attacked by Atrocitus and Glocon. Starbase 12 was mentioned in several episodes of ST-TOS and ST: TNG.
