Waypoint, Issue 2 was the second issue of the Waypoint series published by IDW Publishing in honor of Star Trek's 50th anniversary.

Description[edit | edit source]

This month, two stories from different ends of the galaxy! First, a GOLD KEY homage from New York Times best-selling Star Trek author Dayton Ward, with Trek novelist and collaborator Kevin Dilmore, and art by Gordon Purcell (Star Trek), where Kirk and Spock find an uncharted planet inhabited by monstrous robots! And finally, a story by Sam Maggs, bestselling author of The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy, with art by Rachael Stott (Star Trek, Doctor Who). Learn the backstory of Yeoman Leslie Thompson, the first and ONLY female redshirt to die in the ORIGINAL SERIES!

Summary[edit | edit source]

"Welcome back to Waypoint and our continued look at new and interesting angles of the Star Trek universe!
First up is an homage to the classic Gold Key
Star Trek comics. For those of you not familiar with these 1960s gems, the early Gold Key comics were created by artists, who at times, had never seen the show, and worked off of whatever publicity materials they could get their hands on. Needless to say their end results were definitely unusual-and very un-Trek in some cases (Spock kills! The Enterprise belches fire!)!
Our second story features the tale of Yeoman Leslie Thompson, the only female redshirt killed under Captain Kirk's command during the
Enterprise's original five-year mission. It's poignant and inspiring, and beautifully highlights the message of Trek. Enjoy the issue."
