MARVEL’S STAR TREK comic series launched in 1979, starting with the adaptation of THE MOTION PICTURE, and ran for two years after that.
The crew of the Enterprise is brought back together to take up an urgent mission. Marvel’s comic adaptation of the well-known movie offers a fresh view on this adventure and it also paves the way for the continuation that never happened on TV.
Admiral Kirk and his crew go on a second five-year mission aboard a re-fitted Enterprise. Marvel’s new tales can be seen as the comic version of the never-made STAR TREK: PHASE II TV series — the show that was supposed to continue the original series.
