Your pulse-pounding senses-shattering action-packed Star Trek panel for today:

From Star Trek #18, (DC, 1991) "Once a Hero!" Written by Peter David, pencils by Gordon Purcell, inks by Arne Starr. If I'm not mistaken, this was David's last Trek comic for a while: I believe the restrictions from Paramount over what he could and couldn't do, coupled with an already-heavy workload, ended his run. For the time being. In this issue, a young security guard sacrifices himself to save Kirk, who then realizes he, nor the rest of the crew, knew anything about the fallen redshirt. Like many, I maintain that Redshirt cologne has to smell like fear and burnt hair.
