(written from a Production point of view)
The Klingon ambassador (from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier) announces a price on Kirk's head. The Enterprise responds to a distress call and rescues a Nasgul expatriate. The leader of the Nasgul, the Salla, arrives to take the prisoner from Kirk. The Nasgulians, frequently shortened to "Nasgul," are a skeletal yellow-skinned species.
- The Nasgul appear to be named for the Nazgûl from the works of Tolkien.
- Cover artist Jerome K. Moore based this image on the one he rendered for final issue of the previous series.
