Captain's log, stardate 45482.6 
It appears that Captain Okona will have to wait a while longer before being reunited with his vessel.
We have received a distress call from the Federation research station orbiting Beta Maxilla VII. A rather strange distress call. The Enterprise is headed there now at warp nine...

Background[edit | edit source]

  • A later issue's letter column addressed a discrepancy from this issue, the character Jenna D'Sora was mistakenly called "D'Soro" and was shown wearing a yellow suit with a white jacket rather than a Starfleet uniform.
  • On the cover, the space station appears in the configuration of an R1 type station, but a different design is used in the interior of the comic.
