Kirk.

Between 2264 and 2270, the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) was under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. During his tenure as captain, the Enterprise was a major component in many events of Alpha Quadrant history, as well as minor, run-of-the-mill missions. Below is a list of all adventures undertaken by the Enterprise during the second year of the historic five-year mission, during 2266-2267.

2266

The Enterprise shaken by a cosmic storm

Stardate 20:0605

Medical personnel rescued an escape pod but couldn't save its pilot from a deadly infection, discovering that his people on Zargot were suffering from a plague. A cure was believed possible using herbs from a neighboring planet, so Captain Kirk took a shuttlecrawler to the surface of Coltac. While harvesting the herbs, they repelled two large dinosaurs with phaser fire. Doctor Leonard McCoy and Ixta succeeded in making an antidote. (TOS comic: "Target: Zargot")

Stardate 20:16.45

Infectious pollen on Crucial III incited Hurst's landing party to mutiny, exiling Kirk and McCoy in the damaged Space Bug 7. They made a rough landing on Vultra, where military leader Zella warned of an extinction-level crisis, but rather than ask for help, he and his science advisor commandeered the space wagon and fled the planet. The Enterprise's first officer, Commander Spock, cured the mutineers with an antitoxin, and Hurst immediately set out to rescue Kirk and McCoy. Before leaving, Kirk provided the Vultrans with engine modifications to create viable starships out of existing spaceships so their civilization could find a new homeworld. (TOS comic: "The Crucial Element")
Stardate 24.09.45 - 25.00.10
This period saw the Enterprise hit by a cosmic storm generated by a supernova; the starship rode out the storm without incident, but after Spock noticed a problem with the star camera and had the ship's repair wagons launched to conduct repairs. Jackson, aboard one of the wagons, noticed the Enterprise had entered orbit of a planet which the Enterprise's computers had not detected. Captain Kirk ordered the wagons back aboard and the ship's computers disconnected to try and fix their problems, but as the crew attempted to carry out the order they found the computer resisting, and received a message commanding them to stop. The Enterprise was then remotely piloted in to land on the planet's surface.

The Enterprise landed on the Robots' planet's surface

Once the Enterprise had landed the native Robots who had taken control of the ship demanded the crew disembark and then neutralized them with their energy weapons. Some of the Enterprise crew were later able to escape, but were then found by the Robots again, who demanded Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock comply in removing a power rod from the Enterprise to help resupply the Robots' own dwindling energy supplies, or risk the Robots harming the rest of the crew.
Kirk agreed, but also plotted against the Robots, using a cobalt container to transport the power rod once it was removed from the Enterprise's power unit. The combination of power rod and cobalt container created an explosive devise which would react fifteen minutes after its creation. Not quite as planned, but to the same eventual outcome, Kirk was able to get the sabotaged power rod to the Robots' power unit, causing it to explode and making the Robots shut down, allowing the Enterprise to depart. (TOS comic: "Life Form Nonexistent")

Stardate 24:12.17

While exploring a new region of space, a starship resembling a huge, living eagle attacked the Enterprise. After disabling the strange vessel, David Bailey and others visited in a space bug to offer assistance, discovering what appeared to be a group of humanoid refugees kidnapped by Agonites. Kirk and Spock recovered the humanoids and resettled them on nearby class M planet, leaving them with provisions and weapons. Shortly afterward, however, a dozen of the space eagles arrived, and Kirk learned from Roggaf of Agoni that they were galactic police officers, and the "refugees" were actually convicted criminals. To make up for his interference, Kirk recaptured the criminals and turned them over to the Agonites. (TOS comic: "The Eagles Have Landed")

Captured by Mantis.

Kirk led a diplomatic mission to Angoma, where citizens have been mysteriously disappearing. The culprit: a long distance transporter, which trapped Kirk's team in a Mantis zoo. Bailey tracked the beam's path, leading the Enterprise to the Mantis planet. Spock led a search party, but Kirk's team had already used the transporter to escape to another world. Spock's team followed, rescuing them from cannibals. (TOS comic: "Beware the Beast")

Nuofo attack.

While exploring the Hytar Nuofo system, the Enterprise was assaulted by Hytaran spaceships whose commander said he thought they were enemy Nuofons. Kirk attempted to visit Nuofo as a mediator, but his exploration rocket was shot down and his landing party apprehended. When more ships attacked, Kirk launched an all-out assault on Nuofo, which surrendered. Peace was short-lived, however, when Nuofo's city was suddenly struck by missiles from a mutual enemy, Desta. After the Enterprise drove off a Destan fleet, both governments held democratic elections and were reunited under new President Juf. (TOS comic: "The Third Party")

Stardate 25:11.23

During a diplomatic visit to Galactic Union world Stai, everything went well until Union Officer Ruf forced Kirk to leave by threatening the lives of Da Nek's son and other children housed on neighboring planet Vrex. Angered by Ruf's bullying tactics, Kirk sent a landing party and four shuttles to Vrex to retrieve the kids, but his crewmen were captured and Kirk was placed in a brainwashing machine. An armed rescue team recovered the crew, and Spock was able to reverse the brainwashing. After the children were brought home, the Staians formally quit the Union. (TOS comic: "The Children of Stai")

First contact with the Kalins.

Stardate 4812.46

The Enterprise was caught within a self-sealing oxygenless gas cloud around a mysterious planet. A contingent of warlike, non-humanoid Balants attempted to commandeer the Enterprise to escape their homeworld. Kirk and Spock beamed down in environmental suits to visit an underground city, where they learned about the Balants from their cousins the Kalins. Meanwhile, the Balant leader broke through an airlock onto the Enterprise, but oxygen exposure vaporized him. Kirk explained to the remaining Balants that they could not survive without their protective gas cloud and must learn to live with the Kalins. (TOS comic: "Skin Deep")

After being promoted to helmsman, Hikaru Sulu led his first landing party on an uncharted world that held archaeological ruins. A member of Sulu's team accidentally triggered an ancient security system and geologist Vanani Manprasad was killed. Sulu confided with friend and shipmate Janice Rand about his self-doubt as to whether or not he was truly bridge officer material. Sulu got over his doubts after Kirk cleared him of all wrong-doing in the matter and assured him that the Helm was still his if he wanted it. (TOS short story: "The Landing Party")

Harry Mudd's cargo.

Stardate 1329.8
While on patrol, the Enterprise rescued four survivors from a damaged freighter. One of the survivors was discovered to be con man Harry Mudd, while the others were three "beautiful" women. It was thanks to the efforts of Mudd and his women that the Enterprise obtained replacement lithium crystals from Rigel XII. (TOS episode & Mudd's Angels novelization: Mudd's Women)
Stardate 1672.1
An unusual ore on Alfa 177 caused a transporter malfunction, splitting Kirk into good and evil versions. While the transporter was under repair, Sulu's landing party suffered as temperatures plummeted. Spock and Montgomery Scott successfully re-integrated Kirk's two halves, and the landing party was beamed up, saving them from freezing to death. (TOS episode & Star Trek 8 novelization: The Enemy Within)
Stardate 1513.1

Stardate 1704.2
On collapsing planet Psi 2000, an Enterprise landing party was infected by the Psi 2000 virus. As it spread quickly throughout the crew, Kevin Riley shut down the warp engines, stranding the Enterprise in a decaying orbit. Scott initiated a cold-start of the warp drive, triggering a breakaway that threw the starship out of orbit and three days into the past. (TOS episode & Star Trek 1 novelization: The Naked Time)
Stardate 1704.2
En route to Psi 2000, the Enterprise left a large survey team on the surface of Tlaoli IV. Following the incident at Psi 2000, resulting in the Enterprise being flung back in time three days, the Enterprise returned to Tlaoli early. On arrival back at the planet, they discover that half of the team had disappeared. Captain Kirk led a cave expedition team and found his team, but both he and Lieutenant Sulu were transposed in time, by a Jim Kirk from 2247, and Captain Sulu from an alternate 2287. The situation was later resolved by traveling into the various timeframes and restoring the natural course of events. (TOS - The Janus Gate novels: Present Tense, Future Imperfect, Past Prologue)
The Janus Gate trilogy became an alternate reality upon itself because it occurred in the three day pocket of time, leaving the characters with no memory of the events afterwards.
An atmospheric storm disrupted the transporter, scattering the ship's landing party on a desert planet. Nyota Uhura was stranded in a desert and forced to wait for the storm to pass before Scott could beam her back. She waited in an oasis and bonded with a strange creature, singing to it in Swahili. (TOS - Waypoint short story: "Daylily")
Stardate 1533.6

Stardate 1699.0
The Enterprise was summoned to the Federation colony on Alpha Proxima II to deal with a viral epidemic, along with the USS Constellation. While Captain Kirk and Commodore Matthew Decker strived to keep the planet running, Dr. McCoy and Dr. Lewis Rosenhaus struggled to find a cure, and eventually succeeded. The cause of the virus was later revealed to be from a Malkus Artifact that was unleashed by Tomasina Laubenthal, chief of police on the colony. (TOS - The Brave and the Bold, Book One novella: The First Artifact)

In Quadrant Mark 1.

Stardate 17:01.02

After shore leave on resort world Lado, the Enterprise entered a subspace parallel universe in quadrant Mark 1, discovering a stasis chamber containing the James T. Kirk from the previous Big Bang cycle of the universe. Kirk's predecessor demanded a fencing duel with the current Kirk in order to create a turning point in predestination. Aiding him was a USS Enterprise decoy replica that shot at the Enterprise during the duel. When Kirk refused to kill his predecessor, it created the moment of free will, and the predecessor faded from existence. (TOS comic: "The Choice")
Stardate 1709.2
A reluctant Keras commanded the Romulan bird-of-prey ChR Gal Gath'thong in its attempt to incite war with the Federation by destroying Outpost 4 and other Earth Outpost Stations located along the Federation side of the Romulan Neutral Zone. The Enterprise engaged and destroyed the invading vessel. (TOS episode & Star Trek 1 novelization: Balance of Terror)
Kirk, Spock and Scott made first contact with the felinoid Skurians, but Scott offended supreme head Zeldon, who responded by locking the officers in a zoo with humanoid cavemen. During their jailbreak, Kirk saved Ambassador Meng's life. In gratitude, Meng had them officially freed and returned their communicator, hoping that one day their species might understand each other. (TOS comic: "Captives in Space")
Detecting life readings on an unexplored ice planet, Kirk, Spock, Hurst and Shafer beamed down in environmental suits, discovering a telepathic humanoid calling himself the Guardian of the Future. He showed them a time portal, and Kirk asked if they could visit Earth after the end of their five-year mission. Kirk and Spock appeared in what appeared to be Los Angeles but was actually an alternate reality world colonized by Humanity that had been conquered by Nobians. When they returned to the ice planet, the Guardian explained that he hoped to warn humanity of a potential disastrous fate, which Kirk believed they could now avoid. (TOS short story: "Gateway to the Future")

McCoy with a beavo.

Enterprise crew set up a small expeditionary team on Selkye led by Professor Richard Spellman. McCoy became enamored with cute, little beavos on the planet and kept one as a pet. McCoy soon became sick and weak, while a corpse recovered from the surface suddenly reanimated. Events repeated the next day after Uhura cared for the beavo. The Enterprise returned to Selkye, rescuing the science team from a group of Selkye toad humanoids. The parasitic beavos had drained life energy from the scientists and transferred it to the corpses. (TOS comic: "Planet of the Dead")

Taragon lifeform.

An expanding Taragon colony suddenly faced spontaneous bursts of insanity among the colonists, as well as volcanic eruptions and other natural disasters. The Enterprise responded to their distress calls and investigated. Kirk and Spock suspected intelligent lifeforms capable of telepathy might be responsible, eventually discovering a massive, non-humanoid Taragon lifeform living underground that was able to replicate objects and people. Frightened of the encroaching colony, it had tried to make everyone leave. In exchange for its protection, it agreed to help fashion new buildings and equipment for the colonists. (TOS comic: "What Is This Thing Called Spock?")
Uhura picked up lifeform sounds near a volcano that was due to erupt imminently on planet Alpha 332. Kirk and Spock beamed down to help, finding a group of Parraca praying to the volcano. Kirk and Spock effected an evacuation, but the two were then captured by a group of ape-like Turracas on the other side of the volcano. They would not heed similar warnings, and Kirk and Spock beamed up before they could be sacrificed to the volcano. (TOS comic: "The Gods Have Come!")
Enterprise technician George Maquire boarded a transport headed for Earth so he could provide testimony in a murder trial. En route, Romulan agents kidnapped the transport's crew. Kirk and Spock disguised themselves as Romulans and rescued them. (TOS comic: "Key Witness")

Stardate 7000
The Enterprise visited Ecnal, which was beset by an unexplained planet-wide loss of life energy. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Janice Rand explored the surface, discovering the culprit: an alien Lerow rocket stealing the life energy. The landing party learned that the Lerows were acting out of desperation to restore their dying homeworld. The Lerows were given an energy converter and they departed gratefully. (TOS comic: "Planet Ecnal's Dilemma")
Kirk and Spock were gassed while visiting Raylo, leaving Kirk hypnotized. Spock and McCoy followed Kirk through a cave where he climbed into a stasis chamber. The device began draining his electrical energy for Doctor Rycho, who used the energy to power Mortard robots. Spock theorized that communicators could disrupt stasis. When Kirk answered Spock's hail, the equipment shorted out, Kirk broke free, and Rycho was apprehended. (TOS comic: "Rescue at Raylo")

McCoy with an endangered animal.

Following the supernova of a giant star in an uncharted region, the Enterprise searched for intelligent life in neighboring systems ahead of the blast radius. The crew discovered a world full of exotic animal life, and pairs of various species were brought aboard to prevent their extinction. (TOS comic: "Space Ark")
On previously uncharted Noriga, Kirk and Spock signed a treaty with the natives, who were a humanoid race of varying heights. When Kirk and Spock beamed back to the Enterprise, however, they found they'd mysteriously shrunk like the Norigans. Quickly returning, they learned that a mutagen purposefully launched into the atmosphere shrank people to a size inversely proportional to their age. Kirk and Spock grew back to normal after a few days. (TOS comic: "The Unchartered World")
Using an environmental suit with a jetpack, Kirk looped a titanium cable around a distressed freighter so that the Enterprise could tow it out of harm's way. (TOS comic: "Space Cowboy")

Stardate 17:23.4

Following a mission on Kynardi, the Enterprise discovered that the inhabitants of Argylus suffered from an epidemic that killed anyone who reached 13 years of age, a disease that infected the landing party. The starship hastily traveled to Ominnus in order for the crew to retrieve herbs needed to synthesize a cure. (TOS comic: "Child's Play")

Recovering Alfred Bleikoff's Stasis chamber.

Stardate 18:06.9

In the Sol system, the Enterprise recovered the stasis chamber of Alfred Bleikoff, a noted pacifist cryogenically frozen in the 1990s. Unknown to the crew, Bleikoff's brain had been surgically replaced with a mechanical one during the intervening years, presumably to prepare Earth for an invasion. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Scott received an electrical jolt while reviving Bleikoff which immunized them from Bleikoff. Bleikoff campaigned on Earth for peace, using powers of mass hypnosis to sway large sections of the population to deactivate the Earth's planetary defense system. Before a vote could be taken, Kirk was able to deactivate Bleikoff. (TOS comic: "Prophet of Peace")
The Enterprise headed to Nekros. En route, a landing party retreated from large robotic spiders, one of which shot at a member of the crew. (TOS - Star Trek Annual 1969 comic: "Voyage of Discovery")

Stardate 18:09.2

The Enterprise explored the planet K-G. Unfortunately, the planet was home to a plant species that threatened the galaxy. Capt. Kirk was forced to exterminate all plant life on the planet, as it bore too great of a threat to the rest of the galaxy. (TOS comic: "The Planet of No Return")
Near Nekros, the Enterprise fought three small spacecraft. (TOS - Star Trek Annual 1969 comic: "Voyage of Discovery")
A Klingon scientist at a military research outpost developed a weapon of mass destruction with limitless range capable of destroying a planet. He tested it by luring the Enterprise to Seggor, then using his experimental granulator cannon on Crewman Hoskins, who collapsed to dust after being touched by Kirk. As a further demonstration, the weapon destroyed Kirk's shuttle through its shields. Kirk retreated, prepared to send a message that Earth must surrender to avoid destruction. Scott disobeyed orders and beamed down to Seggor, where he sneaked into the base and sabotaged the cannon's blast hatch. When fired at the Enterprise, the weapon overloaded and destroyed the base. (TOS comic: "The Klingon Ultimatum")

Orbital bombardment on Fornia.

During Kirk and Spock's diplomatic meeting with officials on Fornia, the planet was bombarded from orbit and then invaded. As troops spread out, Klingon Commander Tharrk demanded surrender to prevent further devastation. Kirk and Spock hid, then devised a strategy to take out the Klingon battle cruiser by tricking its crew to fire on a mirrored satellite, which reflected the beam back and caused heavy damage to the cruiser. Kirk and Spock subdued Tharrk and promised that future aggression would be defended by the Federation. (TOS comic: "Smoke and Mirrors")
Stardate 1831.5
While the Enterprise transported medical supplies to Beta Carinae, Lt. Commander Spock and Lieutenant Sulu were charged with transporting Prince Vikram back to his homeworld, Angira. (TOS novel: Shadow Lord)

Stardate 18:41.2

The Enterprise beamed down a survey expedition after large deposits of valuable ores were detected on Beta II. In fact, the mineral deposits had been faked by Klingons to lure the Enterprise there and replace Captain James T. Kirk with a duplicate. The Enterprise left Beta II after being ordered to escort Omegan ambassador T'Ki home, but returned in pursuit of the duplicate Kirk, who had fled after the crew mutinied against him. Back on Beta II, Spock exposed the Klingon plot and rescued the real Kirk. (TOS comic: "The Enterprise Mutiny")

Siege of Asteroid Delta.

Kirk and Spock visited Asteroid Delta and successfully defended it against a siege by unspecified forces. Later, Spock was attacked by the Brain Ray Robot while exploring an unspecified planet, and Spock rescued Kirk from a gigantic duanda. (TOS comic: "Prince Traitor")

Stardate 19:03.4

The Enterprise came across a strange belt of uncharted asteroids near the Nabu system. The Enterprise was then caught in a electronic field shielding the planet. Capt. Kirk then led a landing party to investigate. The planet was revealed to be a penal colony that would blow at some point. Kirk and the Enterprise were then able to escape before the planet exploded. (TOS comic: "The Devil's Isle of Space")

Stardate 19:24.3

On Neesan, Kirk, Scott and McCoy discovered Tol tribesmen worshipping a stone idol of Spock, made from an image their telepathic leader Lok-the-Wise had seen in a vision. The landing party was about to be executed for trespassing on scared ground when Spock materialized in front of the tribe, instantly being hailed as spiritual leader Unruho. An invading tribe of Kovars overran the land, destroyed the statue and prepared to kill Kirk and Scott. Spock used the transporter to appear and disappear, convincing many of the Kovars that he was Unruho, and prompting the Tols and Kovars to pledge going forward in peace. (TOS comic: "The Cosmic Cavemen")

Scott repaired the ship's sensor dome.

Stardate 19:24.8

While exploring Kujal, Kirk, Spock and Uhura were captured by Kujalans, humanoid colonists who had been shrinking for three generations due to strange stellar radiation. After learning of their history, they offered to find a solution to their problem. As the Enterprise approached their star, Scott went outside the ship in an environmental suit to repair a jammed sensor array, but his suit was damaged and he absorbed a strong dose of the radiation, which rapidly shrank him to microscopic size. McCoy used an experimental ray to restore Scott, and Kirk promised that all of the Kujalans would be restored within a year. (TOS comic: "Dwarf Planet")

Stardate 19:25.9

Kirk and Scott time traveled to 19th and 20th century Earth in order to recover a missing N-cycle bomb capable of destroying the planet. The bomb had been hidden in southern California in 1955. (TOS comic: "A Bomb in Time")
While delivering medicine to a starbase, the Enterprise was attacked by a Zargon starship. (TOS - Star Trek Annual 1979 comic: "Space Chase")

Stardate 19:25.9

After incurring heavy damage during a cosmic storm, the Enterprise docked at the Luna repair base while crew took shore leave on Earth. While Kirk and McCoy met xenobiologist Barbara McCoy at Urey University, Scott visited the Engineer's Club, where he spotted a disgraced former crewman, Red Garvin. Kirk and Barbara were on a date when a sadistic guard was killed by one of Barbara's laboratory animals. Authorities allowed Barbara to try to calm the animal on Galileo Tower, but she overreached and plummeted out of the tower. The animal gave its life to save her, and in its dying moments transmitted a telepathic warning about Garvin aboard the Enterprise. Kirk and McCoy pursued, recovering the stolen Great Eye of Ara gemstone and capturing Garvin before he could explode a bomb aboard the ship. (TOS comic: "Furlough to Fury")

Surface of Bwuja.

Stardate 19:26:03

Barbara McCoy joined the Enterprise to study how genetic mutations on Bwuja affected surviving Bwujans, who became water breathers and migrated undersea to avoid a supernova remnant. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Barbara visited an underwater city, but were captured as devilish air-breathers. Raan XIV defied priests and secreted the team in air-filled caverns, where he compassionately also hid any air-breathing babies. Hearing that some air breathers tried climbing to the surface, the landing party followed their trail, discovering a community of air-breathing Bwujans living near a beach who contended with having some water-breathing children. After a confrontation, air- and water-breathing parents exchanged children so that all might grow up healthy. The experience deeply affected Barbara, who rekindled her relationship with her father. (TOS comic: "The World Beneath the Waves")

Stardate 19:26.11

A distress signal for help against wild animal attacks brought the Enterprise to Hercula, where Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Scott discovered caveman-like Yerba being treated as slave labor. Increasing Yerba attacks led to a brief planetary civil war ending with the emancipation of the Yerba and shared rule of the planet. (TOS comic: "The Animal People")

Spock and McCoy's cerebot probes.

Stardate 19:26.2

Faked evidence that Kirk colluded with smugglers led to his being court martialed. As Kirk sought evidence to clear him on Earth, the Enterprise searched System C-71 and pursued a bandit asteroid ship, which offloaded evidence on the inhospitable planet Ndora. Using cerebot probes, Spock and McCoy salvaged the evidence. Meanwhile, Kirk exposed a conspiracy and was exonerated. (TOS comic: "The Trial of Captain Kirk")

Stardate 19:26.4

During a diplomatic mission to Fayo, Emperor Bavoda asked that his son Yano enter Starfleet Academy and serve a tour in Starfleet. But rebels captured Spock, and Yano chose to exchange himself as their hostage. Bavoda was enraged by the loss of his son and demanded the starship depart. That night Kirk and Spock sneaked back to search for Yano, discovering that he was the leader of a rebellion intent on implementing democratic reforms on Fayo. After Bavoda's trusted Colonel Lam tried to kill Yano, Bavoda abdicated in favor of his son. (TOS comic: "Prince Traitor")

Sanoora world ship.

Stardate 19:27:12

During a cultural visit to Nraka, a Sanoora world ship claimed ownership of the world. Sanoora said they'd evacuated during an extinction-level event 500,000 years earlier. The attack incited riots, as the invading ship's captain was a dead ringer for Zotar, founder of Nrakan civilization. Councilor Dvor believed pirates were perpetrating a hoax and launched a fleet of defensive spacecraft, but his ships were no match for the world ship. When the massive vessel targeted the Enterprise, Kirk and Spock were free to help defend Nraka. Once given a way to penetrate the world ship's shields, Nrakan spacecraft caused enough damage to force the world ship to retreat. (TOS comic: "The Evictors")

Stardate 19:27.4

A mineral survey of Alpha 23-C led to the discovery of an underground civilization of crystalline natives. Their telepathic gemstone children matured on the surface, and when threatened were capable of creating paranoia among visitors. Kirk and Spock helped the natives defend against attacks by a crystal slourda dragon. (TOS comic: "The PsychoCrystals")

Stardate 19:29:06

The Enterprise discovered a world in which radiation was de-aging its humanoid population toward extinction. Spock and Scott buried the source of the radiation on Oordon while McCoy developed an antidote, but young Lady Elya and Emperor Wenomi preferred that their survivors be left to grow up naturally as they tried to rebuild their civilization. (TOS comic: "World Against Time")

Temp. CO Zarlo.

Stardate 19:29.13

Captain Zarlo temporarily assumed command of the Enterprise while Kirk investigated potential Klingon infiltration on Mobita. Kirk found a small group of Klingons destabilizing the planet's government by arming the oppressed Togota tribe and sparking a civil war, leaving the planet ripe for conquest. The timely arrival of the Enterprise at Mobita drove the commander's battlecruiser to leave orbit and abandon its team on the surface. (TOS comic: "One of Our Captains Is Missing!")

Stardate 19:29:51

The Enterprise visited feudal Jodarr for King Ledoy's coronation. But Jodarr demanded that Sylva become his bride and her sweetheart Major Rolano to be executed, Kirk asked if he would consult his wizard, the Great Vrunon. Vrunon was revealed to be an alien sent to the planet before birth to guide its culture, but his vessel crashed, and he grew up to pursue his mission mostly by instinct. Spock recovered missing tapes in a volcanic lake, revealing he was to guide the Jodarr natives toward peace. Vrunon confessed his real history to Ledoy, who agreed to rule by peace, releasing Sylva to marry Rolano. (TOS comic: "Spore of the Devil")

Stardate 20:1:7

During ceremonies admitting Quodar to the Federation, Kirk's shuttle was damaged and crash-landed on Tristas. The Tristian Science Ministry imprisoned Kirk's party, including Admiral Tailen Kahn, but they were able to escape. Kahn briefly was exposed to The Presence, a non-corporeal life force within the planet, the discovery of which led to Tristian's self-quarantine from galactic politics. Kirk offered to protect their world if they would share their knowledge with the Federation. (TOS comic: "The Final Truth")

Stardate 20:14.6

The Enterprise then went to the planet Alpha Z-21, also known as "Planet Questionmark". The planet's population was threatened with extinction by city builder machinery. Kirk and his crew aided local leader Krill to stop the machines. (TOS comic: "Invasion of the City Builders")

Stardate 20:27.3

Visiting Floe I to conduct a population study, Kirk, Spock and Krisp were captured by rulers Amara and Sunaro, who were intent on releasing a false report on their society. In truth, the Floes had only days to live, as their planet drifted further and further from their star, making the planet uninhabitably cold, and its rulers were unwilling to change. (TOS comic: "Ice Journey")
The Enterprise explored Klatoor, a world with temporal disruptions and magnioactivity that disrupted transporters. (TOS - Star Trek Annual 1978 comic: "... Wild Goose Chase!")
The Enterprise orbited Rheel, where Kirk and Spock found signs of an extinct civilization on an island. (TOS - Star Trek Annual 1979 comic: "A Hint of Life")

Preventing a planetary collision.

Stardate 23:00.9

Discovering the inhabited planets Inicrust and Morti on a collision course, the Enterprise towed the star fragment Doona into their system, which radiated a repelling force that prevented the collision. (TOS comic: "When Planets Collide")

Stardate 23:14.6

The Enterprise responded to a distress call on Terrellian II, which was colonized by Terralyns. In the past, a radiation cloud forced the Thelemite inhabitants to implant their minds in the local plant life, while the cell structures of their bodies were used to form Zar-Tan. The Thelemites were restored and were able to co-exist with the Terralyns. (TOS comic: "The Empire Man!")

Stardate 23:19.2
