Collection of stories from Gold Key Comics' original Star Trek series.

Premise Edit

Key Collection volume 5 was a comic book paperback collecting the fifth group of issues from Gold Key Comics' original Star Trek monthly, spanning from October 1975 to May 1977.

It depicted the events of a later missions taking place during the TOS five-year mission. While no definitive timeline was established, the stardates of these stories match a range of stardates spanning approximately the last three-quarters of TOS Season 1. Several canon characters and concepts were included in the stories, but the details were very much contradictory with televised Star Trek of the era, the artists were apparently unfamiliar with the source material.
