Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

Passage to Moauv was the first of 11 TOS stories produced by Peter Pan Records. It was initially released in 1975 as an audio production along with two other stories. It was subsequently packaged by itself accompanied by a 20-page comic book. This was the first of seven stories set during Captain James T. Kirk’s first five-year mission aboard the USS Enterprise and the first of six with an associated comic book.

In this story set in 2268, the USS Enterprise ferried a telepathic pet home.
