"Cry Vengeance" is the lead story in the third issue of John Byrne's Star Trek: New Visions comic series. It was published on October 22 2014 and is a sequel to TOS episode & Star Trek 3 novelization: The Doomsday Machine.
- John Byrne continues his new Star Trek photonovel adventures with two tales for the price of one, as the crew of the Starship: Enterprise faces a menace three million years in the making, plus something more recent but no less deadly. Presenting a follow-up to the classic episode "The Doomsday Machine", as well as "Robot", a brand-new tale of murder and mystery.
- Captain's log, stardate 4203.4
- Mr. Sulu's course has brought us back to the drifting hulk of the "doomsday machine". Our task now is to carry out technical inspection of this mysterious artifact, until a Federation science team arrives to complete the job.
- I have come to my cabin, to clean up after the grueling hours aboard the Constellation. Yet I am drawn again and again to the images on my monitor screen. As the Enterprise passes repeatedly over the skin of the monster machine, allowing Spock to take his readings, I find myself for the first time realizing just how enormous this thing really is. Even as I drove the wreck of the Constellation down its gaping maw, the small screen on that ship's auxiliary bridge give me little opportunity to assess the size of the machine.
- Captain's log, supplemental
- The bizarre pursuit continues, twenty-two hours, now, and the alien shows no sign of relenting in the chase.
- Mister Spock maintains his monitoring of the alien's condition, looking for any sign this gamble may be working... Meanwhile, I have taken Engineer Scott's report on our present condition.
