TOS #060 Cover

  • Stardate Unknown
  • Released July 1992

Sent to the icebound planet of Nordstral to investigate a mysterious outbreak of insanity, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise find themselves drawn into another, even deadlier mystery upon their arrival. A team of research scientists has disappeared on Nordstral’s frozen wasteland, leaving no clue to their whereabouts, and no hint of their fate.

While Uhura and Chekov tackle the mystery surrounding the scientists’ disappearance, Kirk and McCoy search for the truth behind the outbreak of mental illness. But both teams soon find themselves in danger, as the planet undergoes a series of massive earthquakes and electromagnetic disruptions. Unable to contact the U.S.S. Enterprise, both teams must fight for their lives as they try to solve the mystery of Nordstral—before the world tears itself apart!

“Captain, I’m afraid I have grave news…”

McCoy moved up quietly behind Kirk, not liking this particular lack of expression in Spock’s voice.

“We have just been informed that the shuttle bearing the remainder of the Enterprise landing party exploded while in transit.”

Kirk’s jaw hardened, his eyes very bright. “Exploded.” It wasn’t even a question. “Have you attempted to raise Chekov or Uhura?”

“I have. No contact has been made.”

McCoy watched Kirk close his eyes, hands wound into fists of frustration. He thought the captain would say something, or do something, to shatter the illusion and make it all not so real. Instead, the silence around them only grew, until it finally made a sound all its own.
