Star Trek Special DC Comics one-shots

#1 Spring 1994
Blaise of glory
Drifting towards a black hole, R.J. Blaise pleads for help via subspace transmission, from anyone in the universe except James T. Kirk. Kirk, or course, is nearby and feeling old. Even a visit from McCoy and a bottle of Saurian brandy fails to lift his spirits much. The Enterprise picks up the distress signal and when Blaise is transported aboard, the situation heats up. She is being pursued by the Lord High Darrich, a warlord whom she has offended during diplomatic negotiations. Starfleet orders Kirk to resolve the situation even if it means turning Blaise over to Darrich. Kirk has his own tried and true methods for dealing with delicate situations and Blaise has her own way with Kirk. In spite of their attraction, duty comes first for both of them. Kirk and Blaise both wonder what might have been had they met at a younger age. Stardate 8626.11

R.J. Blaise first appeared in Star Trek #4-13.

#2 Winter 1994
Raise the Defiant
A priority message from Starfleet orders the Enterprise to meet and pick up Dr. Juram, who briefs Kirk and his crew on their mission. The Enterprise must go to Tholian space and try to recover the Defiant, lost in interspace twenty years earlier (The Tholian Web). Recovery of a classified phase-inverter being tested by the Defiant is necessary because it is apparently still working and causing instability in the Tholian sector. Dr. Juram, an arrogant research specialist, needs Scotty to make her theoretical work a reality. With distrustful Tholians watching, the Enterprise shifts into interspace and locks on to the Defiant. Scotty suspicions about Dr. Juram prove to be true and his foresight prevents a disaster. Stardate 8544.9

A question of loyalty
The Enterprise takes fourteen third year Starfleet Academy cadets on a training mission. Lt. Saavik supervises the officer candidates. Among the cadets is Ensign Valeris (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country). Valeris immediately butts heads with Saavik, who tries to remind the intolerant ensign of Surak's teachings about diversity. As an emergency situation unfolds, Valeris' bigotry is contrasted with Saavik's compassion and the seeds of subsequent events are sown. Stardate 9481.1
