Starting with issue one, Gold Key created a unique look at what Star Trek might have been without the philosophy Gene Roddenberry and basis in scientific extrapolation. The pulp wackiness of the series has delighted readers for close to 50 years.

In this episode of Literary Treks hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther finish their look at the first volume of IDW’s reprints. We talk about some of the ways things from the show begin to creep in to the comic, issues 4-6, where we laugh a lot and give our ratings.

In our news segment we review Ongoing #44.
