Well the latter was the only logical thing to do.

Re: Trek Comics on DVD

So apparently the people writing this had never seen Trek either. I would have thought they would have at least been able to find a writer(s) who know what is and isn't right for Trek.

The panels reproduced in this thread are from an issue that was published in October 1967 (June according to some sources), and presumably written several months earlier. At the time, Star Trek hadn't been around long enough for people to have as clear a sense of what was "right for Trek" as we have today. Or to care much; at the time, ST was just another TV show, one of the numerous '60s TV series Gold Key published tie-ins for.

Oh, ok. I didn't realize that those things were that old, I figued that they were from at least 70s or somewhere around that time.

Re: Trek Comics on DVD

Most of the Gold Key Trek comics were from the '70s. They were published very infrequently early on, eventually becoming quarterly, then bimonthly, and finally monthly:

I see now. Thanks for the info. I'm thinking I might have to check these out when I get my hands on the DVD, mostly just out of morbid curiosity.

Well... yeah, that was goofy too. But someone else already commented on it. Just thought I'd bring up something else that was funny.

I mean, ya gotta admit --"Steady... HONEY."

SPOCK: "That hideous little globe..."

And a planet called Kelly?

What's next? An asteroid called... REGIS?

A planet called Kelly Green. As in green with vegetation.

There's a Sherman's World and a Wrigley's Pleasure Planet. I suppose a planet named Kelly isn't too much of a stretch from there.

^Oh... That Kelly Green.

What's next, then? A planet called tangerine?

Orange, with tons of tiny craters, and a green star-shaped north pole?

And a mantle of... juice...?

You know, I've always thought it was pretty impressive that Wrigley's Chewing Gum is actually still around in the 23rd Century.

That's why the pleasure planet was "double the fun".
