- A mysterious Traveler is pursued by a ruthless robotic horde. Or is he? Jim Kirk must answer that question before his ship and crew are lost.
Captain's log, addendum: we are preparing to board the unknown craft, if "craft" is what it really is…

Captain's log, stardate 6020.0… The Traveler continues to take full advantage of the access to the ship I am allowing him. At present, one of his hatchlings is in sickbay, observing as Dr. McCoy performs an emergency appendectomy.
Captain's log, stardate 6020.1… A… most unusual meeting is convened in the briefing room.

- Many elements within this issue were inspired by the long running British science fiction television series Doctor Who, the Traveler himself showing similarities to the titular character while the Q'al are based on the Daleks, one of the Doctor's most recurring foes.
- The Q'al even used the expression "Terminate", a different form of the word "Exterminate" which the Daleks are known to use as a battle cry when attacking their enemies.
