"The Galileo Seven, Part 2" was the fourth issue of IDW Publishing's 2011 ongoing series of Star Trek comics. The issue consists of the second part of an alternate reality adaptation of TOS episode: "The Galileo Seven", as adapted by writer Mike Johnson with issue art by Stephen Molnar.
- The Prime Directive. It governs everything we do as Starfleet officers. In essence, the Prime Directive tells us: Do not interfere. But we are not always given a choice, particularly here on the edge of known space. A shuttle flight encounters a dangerous anomaly in orbit around an unexplored planet. The shuttle crashes to the planet's surface. The pre-warp civilization on the planet becomes aware of the shuttle's presence. It responds according to the understandable fear of a native population confronted with a highly advanced intruder. Starfleet Protocol would dictate that the shuttle crew is not in violation of the Prime Directive due to the accidental circumstances. And yet I cannot help but believe, as both a Starfleet officer and the commander on the ground in this circumstance that I have made a grave mistake.
While Scott is busy, McCoy and Spock talk about the attack on the shuttle, which is still too heavy to take off. Spock and Boma argue about the situation, and McCoy shuts Boma up. On the Enterprise, Chekov informs Kirk that Uhura has hijacked a shuttlecraft. Back on Makus III, Boma is still in a bad mood. He asks Spock if he has decided. Spock decides to electrify the hull.
Kirk and Ferris argue about returning to Taurus II and getting Uhura discharged. Kirk uses another Starfleet regulation against Ferris. Back on Taurus II, the hull of the shuttlecraft is electrified. The shuttle takes off. Boma apologizes to Spock. Then, there is trouble. The power has drained. They are forced to land. Latimer's body is dumped. Spock, McCoy, and Boma attempt to sacrifice themselves when the stolen shuttlecraft arrives with Uhura piloting it.
On the way to Makus III, Commissioner Ferris informs Captain Kirk about a report he is sending to Starfleet Command. Kirk has Spock and Uhura confined to the same room for a few hours. Spock and Uhura kiss each other.
