Today's pulse-pounding, senses-shattering, action-packed Star Trek panel:

From Star Trek #1, (DC Comics, 1989) "The Return!" Written by Peter David, pencils by James W. Fry, inks by Arne Starr. I know this panel was used in the comics' press of the time: this was DC's second Trek #1, a relaunch in the "New Format" that set aside the supporting cast the old series had accumulated--Bearclaw, Konom, the animated series characters Arex and M'ress. These were the first Trek comics I followed regularly--prior to this, the Gold Key, Marvel, and DC issues I got were purely by that happenstance I'm always on about. I know some don't enjoy David's sense of humor as much, but I loved these, and there was plenty of action and intrigue as well.

To me, that guy in the back with the clipboard looks like Brainiac 5, being played by Conan O'Brien. I don't know what that says about me.
