Tales from the second five-year mission!


Star Trek: Untold Voyages was a comic book miniseries published by Marvel Comics in the United States of America, running for five issues from March 1998 until July 1998.

It depicted the events of a second five-year mission taking place between the events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Some major events shown are Spock's tutelage of Saavik, the switch to the newer Starfleet uniform design of the later movie, and James T. Kirk's reluctance to accept a position at the admiralty rather than as a starship captain.

Background information

  • Each issue in the series took place approximately a year after the prior issue.
  • Paramount asked writer Glenn Greenberg to not refer to or follow any previous novels or comic book stories when writing the series, even suggesting that he create a new origin for Saavik and make her a full Vulcan, instead of the half-Romulan suggested by the novelization of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. [1] Greenberg ultimately decided to remain faithful to Saavik's previously established origin.
