STAR TREK Comics Timeline Project - 1953

YEAR: 1953

When the Stars Come A-Calling
Stardate: Not Applicable
Comic: Star Trek Special
Publisher: DC/Wildstorm
Date: 2001


Writer: Ben Raab / Artist: John Lucas

Benny Russell, the 1950s SF writer that Capatin Sisko often sees himself as during his Prophet driven visions, continues to be turned away from publishers, not because of his talent, but because of his skin color. Later Russell is attacked by what appears to be a gang of Klingons, sees adverts for Quarks bar, mentions of the Borg, and sees aliens everywhere. Using these visions as inspiration Benny writes a new selection of stories and is accepted for publication in Incredible Tales magazine.
