"Worlds Collide" was the second issue of the TOS Untold Voyages miniseries published by Marvel Comics in 1998. The story takes place during the second year of Captain Kirk's second five-year mission. In this story, the crew deals with the ethics of non-interference when a species faces an extinction-level event.

Description[]

During the second year of the newly refurbished USS Enterprise's second five-year mission into the unknown, Commander Spock took a leave of absence to go back to Earth to look into the affairs of his ward Saavik. While Spock was away, the Enterprise went to an isolated world to observe the imminent collision between the planet and an immense asteroid.

Summary[]

Log entries[]

  • Captain's log, Stardate 7521.4 
    The Enterprise has traveled to an isolated, previously unexplored M-class world on the galactic frontier, a world about to be hit by a twenty-mile-long asteroid.
    Our long-range scanners detected this rare cosmic event taking place, and we have come to observe and record it. A similar incident is believed to have occurred on Earth, millions of years ago
    ... Causing sweeping geological and ecological changes that ultimately caused the total extinction of the dinosaurs. Having detected life forms on the planet upon our arrival, I have led a landing party down to the surface, to study these beings… before the impact of the asteroid changes this world forever.
  • Captain's log, supplemental 
    We continue to monitor the upcoming cataclysm on this new world—
    — and Doctor McCoy continues to voice his opposition to our non-interference.
  • Captain's log, Stardate 7521.9 
    The Enterprise is en route to Vulcan, to pick up our returning science officer and then proceed to our next assignment.
