Wow, I have never heard of this 'lost issue' of the Marvel trek line. Is this the proposed cover for that issue?
I think it's actually the "splash page" (Page #1?). The publication's indicia rectangle would probably get pasted over some of the extraneous smoke along the lower edge.
I know I've seen comic scripts online for a few different works-in-progress that never made it when a Trek license was dropped unexpectedly (a Sulu-heavy TOS issue rings a bell), but I had not heard of "Operation Seastrike" and we rarely saw Andorians in any
DS9 comics ("The Maquis: Soldier of Peace" comic mini-series from Malibu, also featuring Bashir, had an Andorian barman).
If you search Google for Trek "Operation Seastrike"
, there are a few other finished pages available in several locations, but the Andorian's presence sealed the deal for me!
This is a fun thread and I have no problem with it being here.
Thanks! And I hope it is useful for those people who ask, "So has xxxx come out yet?"
I really like to know when new stuff is being reported elsewhere so I can watch out for items I don't have on a pre-order. Not everyone seems to have a reliable store that does standing orders for Trek stuff, nor access to shops which stock too many copies of new items.
