Whether it’s the latest interview with Star Trek stars or quizzes that challenge your knowledge of the franchise, Star Trek Explorer delivers pages and pages of interesting content for every Trekkie. We were fortunate to bring you can exclusive look inside the very first magazine that debuted back in November. And this month, Titan Comics is allowing us to share an exclusive excerpt from the cover story “Inside Trek Explores the Enterprise,” of the latest edition of the magazine.
In Star Trek Explorer #3 the Inside Trek supplement is all about the Enterprise, including a history of the Enterprise from the NX-01 to the Enterprise-B; an original series Khan short story by Star Trek author Greg Cox; a quiz on the Federation’s flagship; and the Enterprise’s top 10 moments. Below are four of those moments that are sure to bring back memories.
"STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE “ZERO HOUR”In addition to orchestrating a rift between humanity and the Xindi, the trans-dimensional Sphere-Builders planned to convert the Milky Way into an environment that would only be habitable for their own species. With Captain Jonathan Archer off attempting to stop the Xindi weapon, T’Pol took the Enterprise on a mission to destroy the spheres that had been gradually turning the Delphic Expanse into an anomaly-packed wasteland. The Starfleet crew successfully utilized the NX-01’s deflector to eliminate one of the massive spheres, starting a chain reaction which disabled the entire network.9. RIGHT ON ‘Q’STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION “ALL GOOD THINGS…”What would be better than a single U.S.S. Enterprise-D? Three of them, of course! With Q sending Captain Jean-Luc Picard on a jaunt between the past, present, and future iterations of the Federation flagship, Picard needed to coordinate the Enterprise crews from three separate eras to solve the mystery of an anomaly that somehow grew in intensity as it traveled back in time. Upon realizing the anomaly was an anti-time eruption, each Enterprise-D initiated a warp shell to quell the rift. The vessels were destroyed in the process, but their efforts prevailed and restored the timeline.8. INTO THE MAWSTAR TREK: THE ORIGINAL SERIES “THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE”"
"With a planet-killing weapon on the loose, Captain James T. Kirk and the U.S.S. Enterprise crew became determined to stop the alien vessel’s rampage before it could strike at the heart of the galaxy’s most populated sectors. Attacks from the Enterprise proved futile, so Commodore Matt Decker tried to jam up the mechanism with a suicidal flight into the ship’s gaping maw. Decker’s shuttle proved insufficient, but it inspired Kirk to employ the same tactic with the heavily damaged U.S.S. Constellation. The plan was fruitful, and the Enterprise managed to beam Kirk out just before the Constellation was engulfed.7. CRAFTING A COALITIONSTAR TREK: ENTERPRISE “UNITED”Feeling threatened by the potential for peace between its neighbors, the Romulan Star Empire set out to drive a wedge between humans, Vulcans, Andorians, and Tellarites. Unfortunately for the Romulans, Captain Archer and the NX-01 became a uniting force that organized these local powers into a combined fleet dedicated to tracking down the starship the Romulans had dispatched to plague local space. By helping previously hostile species, particularly the Andorians and Tellarites, learn to set aside their differences, Archer and the Enterprise set in motion the events that eventually led to the creation of the United Federation of Planets."
