Publisher's description[edit | edit source]
- Master photostory artist/writer John Byrne presents the comic-book return of the Gorn in an all-new, never-before-seen story that picks up where the fan-favorite episode "Arena" left off, as the Federation's first attempts at a Gorn peace treaty take a dire turn!
- And as an extra-special bonus, this issue also contains a representation of Star Trek: Leonard McCoy: Frontier Doctor #1, written, penciled, and inked by Byrne!
Summary[edit | edit source]
Log entries[edit | edit source]
- Captain's log, stardate 3391.6
- USS Enterprise holding at the boundary of Gorn space. We have been here for seventeen hours…
- Captain's log, supplemental.
- The Gorn Ambassador's party was safely aboard… but what we could not know then was that one among the party was a saboteur bent on the destruction of the mission, and this ship!
- Captain's log, stardate 3391.9.
- First Officer Spock… and myself… are the only members of the… bridge crew who… have not… succumbed to… the heat. The Gorn… Ambassador… and her party… are unaffected… by the… heat. I hope… that is also… the case with… the Gorn accompanying… Engineer… Scott.

Background[edit | edit source]
- This story was provided as part of a joint 50th anniversary celebration of Star Trek by Humble Bundle and IDW Publishing. To benefit charity, packages of 50 different comic bundles were offered. This exclusive comic was the promotion's fourth tier reward for a donation of $25 or higher. (The Humble Bundle: Star Trek article at the Major Spoilers blog)
- The title derives from a quote by Christopher Marlowe in his play The Jew of Malta, Act II: “Now will I show myself to have more of the serpent than the dove; that is, more knave than fool.” (The Jew of Malta article at Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)
