Star Trek: Burden of Knowledge #2 (32 pages • $3.99)
Written by: Scott Tipton and David Tipton • Art: Federica Manfredi • Cover: Joe Corroney
When the Enterprise crew embarks on a mission of planetary First Contact, Captain Kirk finds a peaceful, idyllic society, one happily linked together by a global thought network—or so it appeared. When he discovers a bitter rebellion simmering beneath the surface, will he be able to follow the Prime Directive, or find himself compelled to get involved?
Star Trek: McCoy #4 (32 pages • $3.99)
Written, art & cover by: John Byrne
Our visit with the Doctor comes to an end with two titanic tales—first, Dr. McCoy must find a way to deal with a virus that just may be smarter than he is… and then a visit to an old friend finds Bones wrestling with a dilemma that cuts across the very heart of his Hippocratic Oath.
NOTE: Shipped with a special variant Byrne “gag” cover!, regular covers will be shipped in a 1-to-1 ratio.
