This graphic novel collects the first four issues from IDW's ongoing STAR TREK series, which "re-envisions" familiar stories and places them in the context of the alternate timeline from the new movie. The first story in this graphic novel is the re-envisioning of WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE and the second half is THE GALILEO SEVEN.
In WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE it's a few months after the events of the first movie and Kirk has given some posts to his friends from the Academy, such as Gary Mitchell and Kelso. They get a distress signal from an old Starfleet vessel, the Valiant, which has been missing for two hundred years. They end up crossing over the edge of the galaxy, which consists of a strange energy barrier. It affects Mitchell and gives him increased psychic abilities. While this basically follows the original script, there are some major differences, mainly with Elizabeth Dehner being absent. It's made clear that she and McCoy had a past fling-and she transferred off the ship prior to this adventure. So it's just Gary Mitchell as the threat. The ship and characters also resemble the actors from the new movie, so that also adds a different feel to the story. In THE GALILEO SEVEN, events pretty much unfold as they do in the original episode, though we see what the giant ape-men look like--and Spock and Uhura's close relationship definitely changes the ending.
