History and specifics[edit | edit source]
In 2267, a Romulan battlecruiser kidnapped a Sklurrian delegation and James T. Kirk of the starship USS Enterprise and offloaded them through city streets to Karrstern prison and then to the Arena of Karr, where the prisoners were expected to be killed by rampaging dinosaurs. The Romulan emperor visited Karr to attend the event.
Spock helped Shell Supreme and Kirk flee outside the city, but they were tracked by a hunting squad with a terrastron. After the Enterprise defeated several Romulan ships in orbit, Hikaru Sulu was able to rescue the escapees in a shuttle. (TOS comic: "Shell Game")
