Star Trek: The Animated Voyages, a new online digital comic book series, features the voyages of the USS Starhaven.

Set in the time of the original series, the USS Starhaven is on its five-year-mission, where the crew will encounter new life, and old foes.

The crew of the USS Starhaven features familiar faces from The Animated Series as well as some newcomers. Captain Svenquist O’Shea was first seen in the Pirates of Orion as the commanding officer of the USS Huron.

Others on the Starhaven crew include Thelin (Yesteryear), Horatio Wyatt, Scarlett Callaway, Daedal, Gabler, and Virginia Erickson.

In this first issue, Perils of Waves and War, “what begins as an investigation into the disappearances of two Starfleet ships quickly escalates into a confrontation of galactic proportions. More than a weapon, what is at stake is the altering of the balance of power in the entire quadrant and beyond. The crew soon realize[s] a Federation enemy holds the key to unlocking a technological marvel, and the Starhaven may not be able to escape destruction!”

Star Trek: The Animated Voyages was created and written by Jon Markiewitz. His wife Leah Markiewitz is the editor for the series.

  1. I’ve been creating my Star Trek Animated series comics, and posting about them in the BBS for over ten years, and never had an article about them on Trektoday.

  2. This “Animated Voyages” comic is amazing! I found it via Twitter. It’s very professional for fan work. Good story, too.

  3. Let me know what percentage (if any) of white people is considered acceptable in this truly SPECTACULAR century we’ve been living in, and I’ll be sure to factor in your numbers when I get around to making my own terrible TAS webcomic.

  4. Indeed, even the Andorian is looking mighty pale. But hey, in 21st century Trek, Khan is a pasty white dude.

  5. “Set in the time of the original series, the USS Starhaven is on its five-year-mission”

    Bad grammar, guys. That sentence means the USS Starhaven is set in the time of the original series. What you mean to say is that the comic is set in that era, not the ship.

  6. This man right here is the first one who gave my “TAV” work a chance, and is certainly a pioneer in the Star Trek web comic “arena” (pardon the unintentional TOS episode pun). As you have seen, I use Mr. Tescar’s review of “Perils of Waves and War” on the site. Thanks, boss. 🙂

  7. You have good timing, Bill. While working on the continuing stories, I formed issue 1 into a final draft, and part of that edit was bringing another familiar face from TAS (Lieutenant Gabler) to the crew, replacing Livingston. From a creative aspect, having Gabler makes more sense for the storylines coming up (using his engineering expertise), and also allows for a bit more diversity, which in any degree, is a staple of Roddenberry’s universe. I attempted to be equitable in terms of gender, race, and aliens, understanding of course not every nationality may be expressed through the number of characters. Thanks, Bill, and have another look.

  8. Kang, that’s hilarious! Yes, the TAS Klingons were blessed with the pink. Consider my use of that color striving for accuracy and continuity!

  9. bydefault, while it’s said that Thelin’s color was due to the TAS coloring practices of the time, we could perhaps look at his very-white complexion as him being one of the Aenar (andorian subspecies from “Enterprise”). That could explain it.

  10. Excellent canonical explanation to my tongue-in-cheek comment. Very nice work all around on the this web comic, looking forward to further adventures.

  11. I wasn’t aware of them. I don’t see everything on the BBS. Shoot me a link and I’ll have a look.

  12. I’d be happy to! http://startrekanimated.com/ta
    I post about them in the BBS Original series and fan art forums. The first original comic was published on 12-2-02.
    Our current issue, tentatively titled “Stardate: Impossible” is in development. Thanks for having a look!

  13. There’s an idea for a trek series.

    Btw, can’t wait for the new episode of Star Trek Continues…
