Like a Shadow… Like a Dream was a two-page Star Trek: The Original Series comic book story, the backup feature in John Byrne's Star Trek: New Visions issue #20. In this story, James T. Kirk, Leonard McCoy and Spock tried out some new holographic equipment.
Although he had some initial doubts about the project, Kirk was impressed with holo-pods, an early exploration into holodeck technology. McCoy abruptly ended the program when Spock told him it also used transporter technology. Scott lamented that holographic scotch was not drinkable.
