BackgroundEdit

  • This was the final issue of the Gold Key Comics run of TOS comics. While the series had generally been monthly, there were several bouts of irregular releases and hiatus periods. After 12 years of publication, the run only yielded 61 issues. The price of an issue rose from 12 cents to 35 cents over the run of publication. Monthly production of a Star Trek comic would resume later in 1979 with Marvel's ongoing series that premiered with "The Motion Picture".
  • The stardates of the captain's log entries progress backward in the story.
  • Pavel Chekov and Hikaru Sulu do not appear in this story.
  • This issue was slated to be collected in The Key Collection, Volume 7, but that volume was never released after Checker Book Publishing Group ended The Key Collection series with Volume 5.
