Star Trek Comics Checklist

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Special Malibu Comics one-shots

#1 Dec 1994
A Federation colony on Gakora, in the Gamma Quadrant, is destroyed by alien vessels. The A'vwi, still under command of Kol ("Hearts and Minds" [DS9 mini-series]), is on patrol in the Gamma Quadrant when a distress call is intercepted. Arriving at Gakora, Kol, Koleth, and Katha, an Imperial Adjunct assigned to the ship by Gowron, find a single survivor whom they take to DS9 for medical attention. Sisko insists on returning to Gakora with Kol. Koleth takes time to have a drink with Bashir, whom he owes a life debt. In the Gamma Quadrant, the A'vwi is attacked by an alien fleet, but their leader allows the Klingon vessel to travel to their homeworld. On Myvock, Malek, leader of the alien world, welcomes the Klingons, but condemns Sisko and Dax to death. He believes humans have defiled Gakora, a planet held sacred by his people. Back at DS9, the lone survivor recovers enough to tell Bashir that it was Lursa and B'Etor (Redemption, Part I [TNG]) who led the alien attack on Gakora. Bashir and O'Brien travel to Gakora looking for evidence only to be captured by the Klingon sisters and turned over to Malek. Kol and Katha transport the Starfleet officers from their gallows and kidnap Malek, taking him to Gakora to show him the truth. Malek's chief military commander betrays his leader and attacks the landing party. Koleth gives his life to protect Bashir, but Lursa and B'Etor escape. Malek ends his war on humans and Bashir mourns his friend. Morn escorts Katha to dinner.
