Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

"Fool's Gold, Issue 1" is the first comic in the Fool's Gold miniseries, released on 16 December 2009.




Captain Sisko and the crew of Deep Space Nine make their triumphant return to comics! When the station begins to be overrun by thieves, treasure-seekers, bounty-hunters and other assorted ne'er-do-wells, Major Kira and Constable Odo must find out why. Can they get to the bottom of it before the station's new visitors bring things to a boiling point?


Luck of the Draw.

The spacecraft Luck of the Draw arrives at Deep Space 9, and the occupants Portafoy and Quinn meet with Quark. Meanwhile, Captain Captain Sisko is surprised that no Dominion invasion has occurred, given their recent encounter with a Changeling on the Defiant. Major Kira brings Sisko data that shows that visitor arrival numbers to the space station have increased dramatically in the last few days but few are departing. Sisko is hopeful that this is is positive news. Quark is certainly pleased with the increase in patrons to his bar. Odo shares Kira's concerns, and he and Chief Miles O'Brien determine that their visitors are looking for something on the station. A fight breaks out in Quark's Bar and Quinn accidentally shoots Jake Sisko with a concealed weapon. His injuries are minor and Sisko realizes that Kira's warning was justified and that they need to find out what is going on.

  • Captain's log, stardate 48987.3.
    Following our last encounter with the Changelings, I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop. And yet the station has in recent weeks been remarkably uneventful. Surely there is more to be concerned about but for now, all we can do is wait and prepare…
