Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

Is this the end of the road for Number One? – "Futures, Part One" is a TOS comic published by Marvel-Paramount Comics in 1997, the 12th issue in the Star Trek: Early Voyages series, set during Christopher Pike's captaincy of the USS Enterprise. It begins a four-part arc in which Mia Colt is sent into an alternate future.


While on the planet Algol, Colt and Tyler discover a "keepsake", an artifact that shows the holder images of his or her own future.


Log entries

Captain's log, stardate 389.4
After the cessation of hostilities between Starfleet and the Tholian Assembly over the disputed Theta Kalyb colony, the Enterprise and the Nelson have pulled into Starbase 45 at Algol II to lick our wounds.
The Chakuun, the Tholians' shock troops, really chewed us up and spat us out. We were the fortunate ones, however, unlike the Brazzaville and the Achilles.
