Background informationEdit

  • The paperback reprint of this collection contained Chapter Six of the serialized novel Starfleet: Year One. Its appearance here was a last-minute change, following delays to the pair of novels originally planned to carry the chapter. Editor John Ordover made an offer to ship out the chapter to anyone angered by the resultant need to repurchase the SNW volumes specifically for Starfleet: Year One.
