Background Information


The incorrect credits for issue #2

  • By its stardate, this issue takes place shortly after the events of the previous issue, "Valued Intelligence", and a few days before the events of "The Inner Light".
  • Elena Casagrande was incorrectly credits as color artist in this issue, rather than the series artist Ilaria Traversi.
  • The issue sold an estimated 7,551 copies in comic specialty stores in February 2008. [1] These figures do not cover copies sold on the direct market (bookstores, etc.).
  • The comic spells the name of the Kalar species as "Kaylar", just as the Star Trek Encyclopedia spelling.
