Background informationEdit

  • This is the first issue of IDW's "Second Stage".
  • One alternate cover featured Peter David as a starship captain, with Kirk and Picard as the helmsmen, and Peter David's "Fallen Angel" character as the tactical officer. The other special incentive was a "quad" cover, featuring four covers for the issue, all attached together. Stephen Thompson did the artwork for all of the covers.
  • This story apparently takes place in the aftermath of Missing in Action, the sixteenth novel in the Star Trek: New Frontier series.
  • The issue sold an estimated 12,836 copies in comic specialty stores in March 2008. [1] These figures do not cover copies sold on the direct market (bookstores, etc.).
