"Operation: Annihilate, Part 1" was the fifth issue of IDW Publishing's 2011 ongoing series of Star Trek comics.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Captain Kirk recalls the aftermath of his destruction of his father's car. His uncle gave him a time-out. Jim was still getting over the fact that his brother, George Samuel Kirk, Jr., had left and moved in with their grandfather. He never saw his brother again. It is now 2258. Captain Kirk is investigating a pattern of mass insanity destroying civilizations. It started in the Beta Portalon system 2000 years prior. Next was Levinius V 200 years prior, in the 21st century. This was followed by Theta Cygni XII, in the 2230s. Deneva is next. The Enterprise spots a ship heading for the Denevan sun, Kappa Fornacis. The pilot declares himself free just before being vaporized. The Enterprise crew realizes that the insanity has reached Deneva.

Later, Captain Kirk, Spock, Doctor McCoy, Yeoman Zahra and Crewman Edwards beam to the capital city. They are attacked by men who shout the word "intruders" more than once as if they have a hive mind. Even though unconscious, their brains are being violently stimulated. Just then, the landing party hears screaming. They go down into a building's subfloor, where a woman grabs McCoy, claiming that she wants to die. They tranquilize her. Just then, they spot a large group of blastoneurons. One attacks Spock. More Denevans arrive acting like one mind. They are rescued at the last minute by someone Captain Kirk had least expected to see: his own brother.
