These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise.
Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds; to seek out new life and new civilizations;
...to boldly go where no man has gone before."
50 years ago, this started Gene Roddenberry's adventure....and it's continued on TV, in movies....and in comic books!
Let's boldly look back at the comic book history of Star Trek!
For a look at all the classic Star Trek Gold Key covers, and how they were once collected, try here!
Marvel Comicsthis series is covered here.
DC Comicsspecial issues here), along with 3 Annuals, 2 issues of a Who's Who In Star Trek and adaptations of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
DC Comics: The Next Generation
Spock and McCoy, who had survived until the 24th Century, with Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Modala Imperative four issue mini-series of 1991.
Spock, Bones and even Scotty got checked again in later Next Generation era stories...
....as these characters survived well past the first five year mission, and kept boldly going in the Star Trek universe....and expanding beyond Gene Roddenberry's vision, even creating new series after Gene had passed away.
Next Generation/Deep Space Nine crossover, making a four issue mini-series where these two crews met and worked together....with DC putting out parts 1 and 4 cover dated December, 1994 and January, 1995, and Malibu putting out parts two and three cover dated October and November, 1994.
Star Trek has even had a few odd crossovers with other worlds, like Planet of the Apes during IDW's run on Star Trek.
IDW focuses on the original cast, but has gone beyond that, following characters from the original series in places readers hadn't seen before..
...as well as giving them depth and interest that was already there, just not being explored....
...and so many more...
So much more than a five year mission for Star Trek, a very happy 50 years.....and discovery to come!
