Star Trek: Early Voyages was an original comic series written by Dan Abnett and Ian Edginton and published by Marvel Comics in 1997 and 1998. The seventeen issue series depicted the voyages of the USS Enterprise under command of Captain Christopher Pike, as established in the Star Trek: The Original Series pilot episode "The Cage".

The series begins prior to "The Cage", however after three issues, per references in "The Cage", Pike's yeoman is killed on Rigel VII and replaced the following issue by J. Mia Colt. Colt's introductory issue, "Nor Iron Bars a Cage" is presented as an alternate point-of-view of "The Cage".

The series was structured with single and multipart stories, including story arcs that recurred throughout the series, or gradually built up over several issues: A Klingon, Kaaj, was introduced in the second issue of the series as a recurring nemesis to Pike; unusual behavior in early issues by Doctor Boyce is explained in the eighth issue, "Immortal Wounds"; references to an ongoing conflict with the Tholians built to a head with the two part story "The Fallen", featuring the Tholian's shock troops, the Chakuun; and issue twelve began a four-issue story arc set in an alternate future version of 2293, where Pike had continued on to command the USS Enterprise-A.
