Issue #14 - June 1981 - When a series goes from monthly to bi-monthly publication it's usually due to declining sales; the reasons for which are shown on this cover (remember 'Kirok'?). Cover art by Ed Hannigan and James Sherman.

Issue #15 - August 1981
     

Issue #16 - October 1981 -
The inclusion of Gnomes--trendy in the early 1980's--in a Star Trek story may have been another reason for the series' flagging sales. Cover art by Luke McDonnell and Al Milgrim.

Issue #17 - December 1981 - The last two issues of the series are considered scarcer, and thus more valuable, due to the low print runs that about-to-be-canceled series often receive. #17 cover by Walt Simonson; #18 cover by Joe Brozowski and Terry Austin.

Issue #18 - February 1982 - The last two issues of the series are considered scarcer, and thus more valuable, due to the low print runs that about-to-be-canceled series often receive. #17 cover by Walt Simonson; #18 cover by Joe Brozowski and Terry Austin.
