"I Sing of Arms and Heroes" is a one-page story in the eleventh issue of John Byrne's Star Trek: New Visions comic series. It was published in May 2016 and depicts the arrival of Arex Na Eth aboard the USS Enterprise.

Summary[edit | edit source]

New personnel transfer to the USS Enterprise one morning from an Antares class ship. Leonard McCoy tells Montgomery Scott he is about to perform their physicals. Scott doesn't know if any of them are scheduled to work in engineering, but he says he can use more hands. As they spot the three-armed Arex Na Eth in a corridor, McCoy jokes that Scott might get his wish.

  • While this story implied that Arex was among the personnel transferred from an Antares class ship, this was not explicitly seen. He could have boarded the Enterprise as shown in TOS novel: The Latter Fire, shortly before the Antares transfers.
