Captain Kirk and the crew of the Starship: Enterprise have come face to face with Cosmic Boy and the other members of the Legion of Super-Heroes, and each team assumes that the other is responsible for the change in the timeline that landed them in this strange world. But will they find common ground in time to defend themselves from an attack by an elite group of imperial enforcers, some of whom are VERY familiar to the two teams?

The Gorn Crisis
By Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, art and a cover by Igor Kordey.
With a fierce war raging and resources running low, the U.S.S Enterprise has been assigned a sensitive diplomatic mission–to enlist aid from the alien race known as the Gorn.

The infestation spreads through the TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, STAR TREK, and GHOSTBUSTERS universes. Zombie apocalypse looms and the remaining members of CVO are running out of options...
