Strange New Worlds was a photonovel-style special created by John Byrne and published by IDW Publishing. It uses imagery from Star Trek: The Original Series to present a new story set during the series. It was a sequel story to the second pilot, Where No Man Has Gone Before. Originally meant to be a one-shot release, it led Byrne to create more such stories in the ongoing series Star Trek: New Visions. It was later re released as issue No. #0 in the main series.


A special extra-length, one-of-a-kind fotonovel sequel to a beloved classic! Years ago, James Kirk saved his ship, but the price was the life of his oldest friend in Starfleet--or was it? The crew of the starship ENTERPRISE faces a staggering discovery in a brand-new episode of the original STAR TREK.
