Gene Roddenberry, visionary creator of Star Trek, was born on August 19, 1921.  He beamed up on October 24, 1991. Today would have been his 95th birthday.

The Star Trek comic book license has been held by several publishers over the years: first by Gold Key from 1967 to 1978, then by Marvel from 1979 to 1981, and then by DC Comics starting in 1984.  Star Trek comics are currently published by IDW.

These comics (and many more) are part of the DuGarm Collection at the University of Iowa Libraries: Special Collections.
