See Manning for other articles with titles that contain, either by relationship or by coincidence, this character's surname.

Manning was a Starfleet crewperson in the 2260s, a member of the USS Enterprise's security crew.

Biography

Manning was qualified to wear the uniforms of both a command division and operations division officer. He was assigned to the guard detail for a mummy the Enterprise recovered, but was rendered unconscious by that charge. Later, Manning joined a landing party to Rifas-L as a security guard, and was aboard the Galileo when it crashed on Tristas. (TOS comics: "The Mummies of Heitius VII", "The Perfect Dream", "The Final Truth")

In 2266, Captain James T. Kirk asked Manning to take a security team to find Zar-Tan, pilot of a crashed marauder on Terrellian II. (TOS comic: "The Empire Man!")

In 2267, Manning was part of a landing party that beamed down to Eminiar VII on a diplomatic mission. (TOS novelization: A Taste of Armageddon)

For purposes of this wiki, the Manning in the comics and the Manning in the novelization are assumed to be the same person in the absence of conflicting information.

Background

With the exception of the regular Enterprise crew, Manning is the most prolific recurring character in the Gold Key/Whitman comic series, with four appearances. In "The Mummies of Heitus VII", Manning wore a gold command division uniform, but identified himself as a member of security. He had dark hair that was receding. By "The Perfect Dream", he wore an operations division redshirt and had gone gray, lost more hair, and grown a mustache. In "The Final Truth", he was back in his gold shirt and had a fuller head of brown hair.

In the early era of Star Trek comics, Doctor Krisp and Manning were the only recurring Enterprise crew introduced for the Gold Key comic series, with Krisp being the only one given any consequential dialogue and relevance to the plot. The concept of shipboard characters unique to the comic series was not further expanded until the 1970s and early 1980s, in the UK and US comic strips and the DC Comics series, when a number of recurring characters were introduced.
