Test of Truth


  • This issue shows the Bird-of-Prey firing while still under cloak, which is curiously inconsistent with Star Trek III: The Search for Spock which established the vessel and its capabilities, including its having to decloak before firing. It is similarly inconsistent with later stories, notably Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, where a Bird-of-Prey being able to fire while cloaked was a notable and exceptional tactical advantage.
  • The Klingon homeworld in the mirror universe is identified as Kash in this issue, as opposed to the later widely used Qo'noS.
