More of the Serpent Than the Dove is a photonovel by John Byrne. The photonovel is exclusive to purchasers of the Humble Bundle Star Trek Comics Bundle.


A brand new story that picks up where the fan favorite TOS episode "Arena" left off. Master photostory artist/writer John Byrne presents the comic-book return of the Gorn, as the Federation's first attempts at a Gorn peace treaty take a dire turn.
