Star Trek: The Motion Picture – Echoes #4


Tensions are at an all-time high with Chekov in a dire medical state while his evil doppelganger, Akris, is supplying the Romulans with the Nightbringer weapon. The Enterprise crew´s mission is clear: infiltrate the Romulan dreadnought and destroy the Nightbringer before Akris can bring the destruction he´s inflicted upon his universe into theirs. But can Kirk and Nyota set their differences aside to ensure a peaceful resolution and avoid sparking a war with the Romulans?

TOS – so iconic. Love that McCoy/Rand cover

agree. This series is clearly where all the money is going in terms of art. The Defiant series and Dog of War….woof (no pun intended)

Ummm, that’s Dr Chapel.

Romulans signed a treaty with the Federation “more than two centuries ago” ?

Kirk lives in the 23rd Century. Two centuries ago, would be now… the 21st Century. The Federation didn’t even exist in the 21st Century. They didn’t even encounter the Romulans until the mid 22nd Century.
