991. The Chosen Part 1: The Hunted
PUBLICATION: Star Trek v.2 #78, DC Comics, December 1995
CREATORS: Kevin J. Ryan (writer), Rachel Forbes-Seese and Mark Heike (artists)
STARDATE: 6218.9 (follows the last issue)
PLOT: After a three-month limp to starbase, the Enterprise is repaired and follows a distress call into Klingon space. A colony has been destroyed, by Starfleet weapons apparently, and now Kang wants his pound of flesh. The ship narrowly escapes and as the two sides sound the drums of war, Kirk is ordered to the Romulan border where more trouble may be brewing...
CONTINUITY: Kang first appeared in "The Day of the Dove".
PANEL OF THE DAY - Why doesn't Starfleet train its officers to lip read?
REVIEW: How very ordinary. A plot we've seen before, difficult to decipher fight scenes, and uninspired art. The ships looked good until I realized they were always the same stock images pasted into the comic over and over. Even seeing Kang again doesn't produce very much joy. Two issues before series finale...
