Summary Edit

The all-new adventure of the Enterprise-D crew continues, with a spotlight on Commander Worf! Worf finds himself in the unfamiliar role of diplomat when he's forced to settle a dispute between Rigelian colonists on a border world, with the fate of the colony hanging in the balance. Can Worf struggle against his own aggressive instincts, or will he do his negotiating with the point of a blade? From the creative team who brought you Klingons: Blood Will Tell, Scott & David Tipton and David Messina.

Background information Edit


The incorrect credits for issue #2

  • By its stardate, this issue takes place shortly after the events of the previous issue, "Valued Intelligence", and a few days before the events of "The Inner Light".
  • Elena Casagrande was incorrectly credits as color artist in this issue, rather than the series artist Ilaria Traversi.
  • The issue sold an estimated 7,551 copies in comic specialty stores in February 2008. [1] These figures do not cover copies sold on the direct market (bookstores, etc.).
  • The comic spells the name of the Kalar species as "Kaylar", just as the Star Trek Encyclopedia spelling.
