Review: Gold Key 3: Invasion of the City Builders (Sept 1968)

Invasion of the City Builders

Gold Key comics tend to break canon in a few details, like ordering ‘Rockets On’ to sail away, and placement of planets on “distant” galaxies. Because of this, they usually are rejected away from all canon. Memory Beta just ignores the whole galaxy reference and takes it as a system.

This one is also mildly good; it has a good sci-fi believable plot and it combines it with a bit of adventure. Unnecesary risk-taking in the part of the crew also. I can’t get over the fact that even with a 400+ crew and even specialized “security” crew, the senior officers are always putting themselves in danger…

CHRONOLOGY:

STARDATE: 20:14.6
PLACE: Alpha Z-21, Planet Zarta at the “Edge of a Distant Galaxy”
EXPLORATION: First contact with unnamed humanoid species
ALIEN TECH: Cities and machinery made of “Unknown Metal”
