The Gorn Crisis was written by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, and features art and a cover by Igor Kordey. The story follows the Enterprise and Captain Picard's crew as they seek the help of the Gorn in the face of a brutal war and diminishing resources, only the Gorn have major problems of their own, among them a revolution festering in their ranks. Oh, and the Gorn are still smarting about their treatment at the hands of a certain previous Enterprise captain. The Gorn Crisis is a trade paperback/reprint that will run 104 pages and be priced at $15.99.

In it, Kirk and the Enterprise crew meet up with Cosmic Boy and other members of the Legion of Superheroes, with each group under the assumption that the other caused the timeline change that stranded them in a strange world. Meanwhile, even as they strive to find a common ground, both teams are attacked by some very familiar enemies.
