When Tokyopop first acquired their license to produce Star Trek manga comics in 2004 they planned to publish a TNG. They later opted to start with TOS instead, as that series' 40th Anniversary was approaching. Prior to that change of plans they announced what they had planned for TNG[2]:

  • A "creepy space spider story" by Mike Barr

  • A "Q story where he’s split into three personalities" by Chris Dows
  • Skin Deep - a "Klingon battle story" by Jim Alexander

Tokyopop did eventually publish a TNG book in 2009, but none of these stories were included in it.
