I believe Hendorff aka cup cake is dead. he died in STiD.
He died in the novelization, but not shown as dying onscreen.
What an ignominious death by special effect - to end up on the cutting room floor and not even have Kirk shout, "Cupcaaaaake, noooooooo!!!!"

Did the novelisation give any indication of the identity of the second guard? If they killed Boma too Rand and Zahra will have to pull double duties - go ladies!

Actually, thinking about it, Janice is still a yeoman - it would also be nice to see her doing some admin and off on a landing party to collate tricorder readings and log entries too.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

One thing I'ma bit confused about is when, in the first issue of the "After Darkness" storyline, Kirk visits an imprisoned Robert April to tell him that his and Admiral Marcus' plan to start a war with the Klingons has failed. But I thought April was trying to avoid a conflict with the Empire in the "Countdown to Darkness" mini-series, when he offered the Klingons the Enterprise in exchange for them making him governor of Phaedus IV?

April wanted to protect the planet Phaedus from the Klingons. He presumably didn't care about Earth or the Federation.

Which is precisely why the notion that April and Marcus were both in cahoots doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Marcus might have felt a sense of loyalty to his old captain and decided to help out where he could.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

The point is, April was hardly trying to ignite a war with the Klingons; he was trying to minimize violence. So then why does Kirk accuse him of being part of Marcus' plans to start a major war with the Klingon Empire?

^April was trying to minimize violence on Phaedus itself. He may have felt that helping Marcus trigger his war in exchange for a deal for Phaedus to be left alone was a valid way of achieving that. After all, he did offer to become the governor of Phaedus on the Klingons' behalf. That's entirely consistent with expecting there to be a war -- he's ceding territory to the enemy so that they can conquer it bloodlessly, thereby averting the invasion that would otherwise come.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

So do the Gorn issue and the Romulan/Klingon War issues have titles?

Maybe whoever wrote the title had Gorn Orff before they had a chance to use it.
