In the year 2286, Captain Kirk recalls his first mission aboard the Enterprise in 2262. The mission:- transport Captain Christopher Pike to his next assignment on Draxis II.

Date: October, 1994


Writer: Kevin J. Ryan / Artists: Rachel Ketchum & Mark Heike

During an early part of the Enterprise’s first five-year mission, the ship arrives at the planet Tendar which is at the early stages of space exploration. When the landing party beams down, Kirk, Spock, and Gary Mitchell are immediately arrested. The Tendarans want to use the prisoners as negotiating tools with the Federation, but Scotty and the rest of the Enterprise crew have other ideas, and soon break them out. (Because prison break outs are so much more exciting than using the transporter!)

Following the events of the ST:TOS episode Where No Man Has Gone Before, James Kirk tries to compose a message to the parents of his best friend, Gary Mitchell, informing them of their son’s death. Unable to tell them the truth about his death, Kirk instead tells a story of how Mitchell once saved his life and helped him better understand an alien culture, thereby showing him the true purpose of Starfleet.
