Star Trek #45 (IDW)

 

In the "Previously in Star Trek..." paragraph on the inside front cover of this issue (and the previous), it is erroneously stated that the Enterprise found itself adrift in the Andromeda galaxy after its encounter with the Behemoth creature. The ship was left stranded in the Delta Quadrant of the Milky Way galaxy, as stated in "Eurydice" Part 1. Possibly, the story was originally written to take place in the Andromeda Galaxy and was changed to the Delta Quadrant and the statement found in this issue was overlooked.

 

On page 5, Sulu interprets Kirk's message about keeping the bar open past closing time as a code meaning to get ready for a brawl, a callback to Kirk's younger days. This may be a reference by the writer to Kirk's bar brawl at the Shipyard Bar in "Parallels".

 

On page 18, panel 2, Eurydice's young daughter, Thalia, is seen playing 3-dimensional chess with Spock.

 

The issue ends with Enterprise in possession of the dilythium needed to power its engines and begin heading home. But the ship is still in the Delta Quadrant "decades from home" at even the ship's highest velocity (according to "Eurydice" Part 1).
