"A Page From Scotty's Diary" was an original one-page Gold Key Comics story published in the omnibus The Enterprise Logs, Volume 1 in 1976. It was the second of four original Gold Key stories which appeared only in omnibus publications.

In this story, Montgomery Scott looked forward to seeing his girlfriend at Starbase 12.


Contents blurb
Diary is accidental transmission included herein as background. Personal and Confidential.


(Montgomery Scott's) Personal log, stardate 24:3:19. A 3-day liberty on SF Base 12-N brought a miraculous coincidence!

Scotty puts on his dress uniform in anticipation of a rendezvous with old girlfriend Blanda Lane, who was a singer performing at Starbase 12 for starbase personnel. Scott charms her, and Lane suggests that they take a drive into the desert. But when they get to her groundcar, Scott is amazed by the sight of the new yellow hyperdrive sports-track. He removes his dress uniform to check under the hood at the brilliantly-designed super-compressor. Blanda develops a headache.
