- John Byrne continues his new Star Trek photonovel adventures with "Made Out of Mudd" — Harry Mudd has gotten under Jim Kirk's skin before, but never quite like this… alien artifacts, Klingons, and a mad man's schemes add up to headaches for the captain and his crew. All that, plus tribbles!
- Captain's log, stardate 4823.2
- The Enterprise has been summoned to planet Tau Delta IX, with no reason given. I would be inclined to ignore this order without further clarification … except that it has been given an Alpha One Priority designation! Our orders are to make immediate contact with chief of psychiatry, Varn Hamilton.
- Captain's log, stardate 4824.0
- The Klingon armada is retreating across the full span of their invasion, As usual, there are no apologies, no admissions of any wrongdoings. Unlike Captain Koloth, I do not relish the thought of our next encounter. So far our meetings have been bloodless – but I know that cannot last.

- USS Enterprise visited Triangularis III. James T. Kirk beamed to the surface, where vanity transporters saved his molecular pattern.
- Late 2267
- Mudd claimed that after a matter of weeks, he had lost 50 kilos while working in grain fields on the planet Mudd.
- Events of TOS episode: "The Omega Glory".
- Following his court martial, Ronald Tracey visited several planets, discovering an operational vanity transporter from an ancient civilization.
- While on Triangularis III, Tracey appropriated a microtape copy of Kirk's pattern.
- This story was chronologically the next Harry Mudd adventure after TOS episode: "I, Mudd".
- Five Constitution-class starships were seen supporting the USS Enterprise to route the Klingon fleet. Registries were clearly visible on three: NCC-1705, NCC-1711, and NCC-1770. A fourth might be NCC-1737, while no registry was visible on the fifth. Based on registry, the four vessels appeared to be the USS Excalibur or USS Yamato (NCC-1705); USS Potemkin, based on a NCC-1711 registry cited in TOS reference: Star Fleet Technical Manual, or another vessel; USS Proxima (NCC-1737); and USS Sinuiji (NCC-1770).
- IKS Gr'oth was not cited by name.
- Koloth referred to the mission of the backup story in this issue, "The Great Tribble Hunt".
- Galileo had been destroyed prior to TOS episode: "The Omega Glory" and replaced by the Galileo II. Not aware of that, Ronald Tracey painted Galileo on the stolen shuttle.
- The shuttlecraft seen in the hangar bay, marked NCC-1661/1, could belong to the USS Kinshasa (NCC-1661) or a different vessel with that registry.
- The operations center of the Deep Space Communications Link Station had the same layout as the one on Deep Space Monitor Station 18 seen in TOS - New Visions comic: "Time's Echo".
- Mudd's adventures continued in TOS - New Visions comic: "The Survival Equation".
- TOS episode: "Mudd's Women" – Introduction of Harry Mudd in Star Trek: The Original Series.
- TOS episode: "I, Mudd" – How Mudd came to be paroled on planet Mudd and supervised by Stella Mudd androids.
- The other story in the issue was titled "The Great Tribble Hunt".
