Cover without titles
  • This issue was available in two covers, both using the same art by John Byrne. The primary cover was a coloured version, with colours by Tom Smith. The second cover, a limited retail incentive was a sketch version of the artwork.
  • This issue was twenty-three pages in length, as opposed to the usual twenty-two; this was to allow a single page epilogue moving Number One onto the Enterprise ahead of John Byrne's original intension, per IDW's request that he reduce the series from six to five issues. The forth issue in the series subsequently one page shorter than usual to balance the numbers to a twenty-two page per issue average. [1]
