Marvel were the second publisher to print Star Trek comics. They produced a small number of comics in the Motion Picture movie era from 1979 until 1982.

In 1996 Marvel reacquired the Star Trek license and published numerous comics spanning the Star Trek saga. They even started two original comic series of their own, and ran a cross-series story, the Telepathy War.

Marvel TOS 01

Marvel's first Star Trek comic

First run[]

Marvel's first Star Trek comic series began in 1980 with a three-part adaptation of the recently released movie Star Trek: The Motion Picture; the series continued to a total of eighteen issues, finishing in 1982. The deal with Paramount restricted the writers of the comic to use only elements from the film and not anything specifically referenced in the original series. This meant there could be no sequels to or use of characters from TV episodes. However, the series did introduce for the first time McCoy's daughter Joanna, taken from the series' bible.

The series had a number of writers, starting with Marv Wolfman and followed by Mike Barr, Tom DeFalco, Martin Pasko, Michael Fleisher, Allan Brennart and J.M. DeMatteis.

Early Voyages began in 1997 and ran for seventeen issues until 1998. The series was set on the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) under Captain Christopher Pike. The series began before the events of the TOS pilot episode, The Cage, presented that story from the point of view of Mia Colt and then continued on after. The series also featured a multipart story arc depicting an alternate future in the TOS movie era in which Captain Pike remained in command of the Enterprise and Enterprise-A.
