None But the Brave was a 22-page Star Trek: The Original Series story which appeared in the fourth issue of Marvel Comics' anthology series Star Trek Unlimited along with the TNG story "Inheritance". In this story, Starfleet sent a task force to recover an experimental Constitution-class starship captured by Romulans.

Publisher's description[edit | edit source]

From solicitations
Scotty joins Starfleet Security in a covert mission to rescue a captured Federation starship — a ship with a secret!

Summary[edit | edit source]

The USS Confederate field tested a warp accelerator that theoretically could yield transwarp speeds. In 2268, its inventor dismissed it as too unstable, but Starfleet built it anyway. It failed, forcing all personnel to evacuate in the saucer section. Unfortunately, the engineering section was recovered by Romulans and brought to their Atnox Depot for study. Commodore Foley hoped to recover the ship, and sent the USS Enterprise to the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone as a lure.

Mission log, Commander Mirek recording. The Federation ship prowls the edge of the border. Taunting us. Under normal circumstances, such actions would seem reckless and foolhardy, but I am dealing with James Kirk, and therefore I must look for a deeper purpose... just as I must look for his slightest slip, the slenderest excuse to destroy him...

With six ships dispatched from Atnox Depot to support Mirek, the facility was only lightly guarded when Montgomery Scott and a commando team landed and sneaked aboard the Confederate. Scott provided limited shields and maneuvering thrusters, enough to launch the Confederate and escape the depot's defensive gun emplacements. They had enough power for a 30-second burst at warp two, which got them within sight of the Enterprise, but they came to a dead stop on the wrong side of the border.

Starfleet Intelligence operatives armed the Confederate's auto destruct, but the miracle worker had one more idea. Scott readied the warp accelerator for one last test, then sent a coded message telling the Enterprise how to shield themselves. The propulsion system misfired as expected – generating a distortion field that disabled all of the Romulan ships. Before the Confederate fell into a spacial rift, the commando team safely beamed over to the Enterprise.

Captain's log, supplemental. With nothing left to fight over, the Romulans have withdrawn, and the USS Nimrod has arrived to collect Commodore Foley and her people…
