"Renewal" was the debut issue of the TOS Untold Voyages miniseries published by Marvel Comics in 1998. The story begins at the final moments of TOS movie: The Motion Picture, depicting the start of the refit USS Enterprise's shakedown cruise for Captain Kirk's second five-year mission.


The Enterprise's shakedown cruise is interrupted when a squadron of Klingon battlecruisers attempt to seize the refit starship. Kirk disables the lead vessel by channeling all phaser power through the engines, delivering a massive blow that disables both the battlecruiser and the Enterprise. Kirk's bluff that this is a viable weapon convinces the Klingons to retreat, and Admiral Nogura is finally swayed to allow Kirk to remain in command.

Log entries

  • Captain's log, Stardate 7413.2
    With the Enterprise performing beautifully, thanks to Mr. Scott's technical wizardry, we are now en route to the Scylla sector
    — Where the Federation monitoring station Epsilon 9 had been located —
    — before its unfortunate encounter with V'Ger, during which the station met its demise!
    We will attempt to locate any possible survivors of this disaster.
  • Captain's log, Stardate 7414.1
    Despite the Klingon High Council's insistence that they did not sanction Krell's actions, relations between the Empire and the Federation will have to be reconsidered...
    ... As will the Organian Peace Treaty, given the Organians' apparent disinterest in continuing to enforce it. It may even be dissolved...
    ... And new agreements would have to be drafted.
    On a more personal note, I have just received a signal from Admiral Nogura, which I cannot help but greet with trepidation...
