Star Trek: Assignment Earth
The 1968 TV episode "Assignment Earth" had been the Season Two finale for the original Star Trek series, and was intended by Gene Roddenberry to act as the pilot for a spin-off show, one that never came to pass. Now, more than 40 years later, John Byrne gets the green light to launch the series. Interstellar agent Gary Seven and his assistant covertly confront threats to the past so that they can save Star Trek’s future. Byrne writes and draws the series, which steps one year forward with each installment, beginning with 1968, the year that the spin-off series would have appeared.
