The two characters also appeared in DC Comics first volume Star Trek series, which for a time was written by David. See more »

Carrying on from the fourth year of their five year mission this is 22 more episodes with Kirk and crew. Some episodes serve as excellent sequels to original episodes, others are absolute gems of creativity in their own right.
There is a real passion behind this series. Everything from the creative writing to the efforts put in by James Doohan doing several voices at once really gives this show it's charm.
Officially it's not part of the Star Trek time-line but that aside it does have key Star Trek elements shown for the first time.
Much like how we appreciate The Original Series today with its low-grade effects (by todays standards) - you can appreciate it for its creative value, effort and shear brilliance.
