Presenting the rare newspaper strip from the late 1970s and early 1980s that Star Trek fans have eagerly awaited. Volume 1 includes the first ten story arcs from the strip’s debut on December 2, 1979 through October 25, 1981. Star Trek comic books have been published—and collected—almost continually since 1967. Astoundingly, the long-running newspaper comic strip has been largely overlooked by even the most devout fans. In 1979 Paramount commissioned the comic strip to pick up where the first film, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, left off and relate the adventures of the next five-year mission. The series, although it continued until 1983, had very limited distribution and soon faded into obscurity. What’s more, the strip has eluded comprehensive reprinting efforts…until now. Thanks to thorough research by a handful of dedicated Star Trek collectors, the strips have been rescued from yesterday’s fading newsprint and restored for this first of a two-volume set that collects the entire run of the rare newspaper comics.
