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

Premise

Key Collection Volume 6 is a comic book paperback collecting the sixth group of issues from Gold Key Comics' original Star Trek monthly, spanning from May 1977 to May 1978.

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.

Originally announced for release in March 2007, the collection was delayed until November 2008.
