Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

"Vulcan's Vengeance, Part 2" was the eighth issue of IDW Publishing's 2011 ongoing series of Star Trek comics.


Kirk, McCoy, Hendorff, and Zahra have made an incursion into the Romulan Neutral Zone aboard a shuttlecraft. Spock is also on board disguised as a Romulan prisoner. The Romulans arrive and arrest them. They do not believe what Kirk tells them. While Sulu worries, Kirk speaks before the Romulan Senate, explaining the Federation's principles and the danger posed by red matter. The head senator admits that he honored Nero after his death and sentences the crew to life in prison.

Meanwhile, the renegade Vulcans are discussing their plot to destroy Romulus when Spock arrives. Spock finds out the truth about the Vulcan plot and is surprised to see his father. It becomes apparent that Sarek and Tevok do not get along very well. While the others leave, Spock convinces his father that he is not acting logically, and they go to free the rest of the crew who have already broken free. Spock explains everything.

The red matter is supplied to the Senate. Just then, Kirk, Spock, and Sarek arrive and expose the plot. Tevok, who is now insane, tries to continue the plan, but Varik stops him. He reveals that he lost his wife and part of his hand in the destruction of Vulcan, but he knows that destroying Romulus will not solve anything, and he has disabled the detonator. Tevok, Tarek, and Varik are sentenced to life imprisonment for their role in the Vendetta Conspiracy. Sarek is pardoned and warned that any further incursion will result in imprisonment and possibly war. In exchange for the Enterprise crew's release, the Romulans keep the red matter and the Narada's designs.

Uhura is unhappy about what has happened with Spock. As it turns out, the deal Kirk made with the Romulan Senate has generated controversy with Starfleet Command. Vice Admiral Pike is worried that the Romulans will use the red matter against the Federation. That, however, is unlikely because Nero has now been dishonored. Kirk is not so sure.
