Pretty much the same as in all the other issues with some minor details. First story has Uhuru with light skin. Kirk goes down to a planet and is captured by a miniature rocketship. (Why don't they ever use drones to avoid such problems?) There's a scene straight out of Gulliver's Travels and it turns out the people are getting smaller due to rays from their sun. Scotty shrinks and gets attacked by microbes.

Another story has Kirk and crew up before a board hearing. Seems a planet they visited

Not bad, if you consider that it's a product of its time. The "Death of a Star" story reminded me a bit of elements of Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda with the whole avator of the sun this :)

More weird stories in this. One of them, "The Dwarf Planet," is a silly Gulliver's Travels in space. Another story has a character named Admiral Talien Kahn, which is weird considering Khan is the name of another well-known Star Trek character. Issue #29 is excluded from this volume. Normally, I'd have a problem with that, but the thing is that #29 of this run was a reprint of #1. Really weird, right? I guess it wouldn't be so weird at a time when people didn't have the internet to go through a ...more

More fantastic (in the literal sense) comics from the early 70s, where we can see shrinking life, a civilization trying so hard to be perfect, which seems to be a common theme among the series. The art is very good considering the era, and constitutes a perfect snapshot of the times. Very entertaining.

Definitely a step up from volume four which I found to be a bit of a slog. The stories in this were definitely more engaging although they continue to make me think they never watched the series before doing the comic as Lt. Uhura is frequently referred to as "Uhuru".
