Sam is the 14th issue of John Byrne's Star Trek: New Visions comic series. It was published in February 2017.


When the crew of the Enterprise is called to facilitate a prisoner transfer, Captain Kirk must face one of the greatest moral challenges of his life, proving the innocence of a confessed killer — Sam, Kirk's own brother, in a thrilling tale courtesy of writer/photoartist John Byrne.


Captain's log, stardate 2201.9
USS Enterprise entering standard orbit about Starbase 11. The only thing that will be "standard" about this visit, I suspect. I am beaming down to meet with Starbase Commander José Mendez.
Personal log
Leaving orbit, Starbase 11. Sam has been brought aboard the Enterprise and incarcerated in the ship's brig. He remains alternately silent and elusive about this whole affair.
