Re: Star Trek Newspaper Comic Strips

Well, the UK strips c. 1970 have finally caught on that Dave Bailey isn't a regular character and Sulu, Scotty, and Uhura are. And they finally have shuttlecraft instead of "space wagons." They're still getting the uniform colors wrong, though, and the stories and characterizations are nothing like ST. Spock is written indistinguishably from any other character, without even a token reference to logic or emotional control. And despite the constant references to the Enterprise being on a mission of peaceful contact, the stories routinely involve fighting enemy aliens or taking sides in wars. So they aren't really ST comics, just generic space adventure comics with the trappings of ST.
