It was in Marvel Super Special #15 (December, 1979), with a cover by Bob Larkin, and adaptation by writer Marv Wolfman, pencils by Dave Cockrum and inks by Klaus Janson.
This was the story of Will Decker, Ilia and V'ger, alongside the Enterprise crew of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scott, Sulu, Uhura and Chekov...
...and this led to Marvel's first run at a Star Trek comic book series.
Quite a bit for this first issue, adapted by Marv Wolfman, Dave Cockrum and Klaus Janson (and a cover by Steve Leialoha).
The Final Frontier
A little odd to have this, not starting or ending the story (and a bit of a flash forward to how comics would behave in the future..
....the Enterprise crew hadn't really had continued adventures in comic book form before).
Best of all, these three issues are reprinted IDW's Star Trek Movie Omnibus (June, 2011), that contains the adaptations of the first 6 Star Trek movies (with the last four being done by DC Comics, and IDW handling Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan).
These Are The Voyages
Of The Starship Enterprise
Its Five Year Mission
All enough to keep a crew busy for a time!
To Explore Strange New Worlds
Plus, as a bonus, artist Dave Cockrum shows us Files of Starfleet Headquarters, about Starfleet uniforms and rank insignias.
Wait, the Loch Ness Monster in space?
The crew has to find where these old Scottish legends are coming from in this odd science fiction mystery tale by Martin Pasko, Joe Brozowski and Tom Palmer, with a cover by Joe Brozowski and Tom Palmer as well.
To Seek Out New Life
The alien crew have life expectancies of thousands of years, and their form should make them immune to passing through the energy surrounding the galaxy...
....but that doesn't seem to be the case as the ship returns, with Rand and the aliens attacking, and only the Enterprise there to stop them, in this story by Allan Brennart and Martin Pasko, with art by Luke McDonnell and Klaus Janson, and a cover by Joe Brozowski and Tom Palmer.
This leads into a battle with the Klingons, as they try to claim mineral rights to the planet she is on (with Bones finding out his daughter is engaged to a Vulcan as well! This is why this doctor doesn't make house calls).
And New Civilizations
Ancient Egypt...in space?
Kirk and crew beam down to investigate, with Spock remaining on the ship. Kirk falls prey to the force in the pyramids, changing his personality, and the captain battles with his crew, until they solve the riddle this situation presented.
Spock and McCoy go to Kirk's quarters to find an alien there...
....but, it is really just Captain Kirk, preparing for a new mission, and they will have to be disguised as well. The disguised Enterprise crew go to free a prisoner, and, things go wrong (when don't they?) and the landing party gets captured itself, giving them something to think about, as well as having to get free themselves.
To Boldly Go
Exploring a planet, Spock gets a reading on small humanoids, and the landing party goes to investigate. While on the planet, McCoy gets injured, and a female member of the landing party gets taken by a pair of hairy arms (much to the concern of Chekov). It seems the Enterprise has wandered into a battle between gnomes and trolls, and have to work their way out of this trouble!
The Enterprise crew go to check on a planet where a Federation probe has crashed, and released a toxic gas on the primitive people's of that planet. Kirk, Spock and McCoy beam down in disguise, so as not to expose their advanced nature to the civilization there. Sadly, they are found out, having their communicators and tricorders broken, Kirk and Spock escape capture, and then must free McCoy before he is executed the next day by these superstitious people.
Where No Man Has Gone Before
The Enterprise is confronted by a huge alien ship, that brings Kirk and Spock aboard, while holding the Enterprise captive. Kirk and Spock are forced to watch each other die in various scenarios while the Enterprise crew are being slowly killed. Kirk and Spock both prepare to sacrifice themselves for their ship, leaving an impression on their captor....
....and that is Star Trek at it's best. Striving for more, showing hope for tomorrow, and a loyalty beyond oneself to one's friends.
Better still, Star Trek #4 to #18 from this run have been collected by IDW, who continues the Star Trek franchise in comic for to this day, these in the Star Trek Omnibus Vol. 1, and after a few years (and the movie, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan), DC Comics takes a chance to boldly go....
