"Starlight, Starfright" was the last of five Star Trek: The Original Series comic strips distributed in Star Trek-themed McDonald's Happy Meals in 1979, coinciding with the release of TOS movie: The Motion Picture. The strip was read by inserting it into a toy called the Video Communicator. The story was reprinted in the omnibus The Newspaper Comics, Volume 1.

Summary

On a viewscreen, Kirk shows McCoy subplanet 897-JOJ. McCoy is then abducted by transporter and is informed that a Doctor is needed for experiments. Spock offers that the Argontrons are afraid of darkness, so the Enterprise arranges for darkness and rescues McCoy with a shuttlecraft.

The Enterprise directs a beam of energy toward a celestial body to cast 897-JOJ in darkness.
