Didja Know?


The title of this 6-part story, "I.D.I.C.", stands for "Infinite Diversity In Infinite Combinations", a Vulcan philosophy first introduced to us in the original series episode "Is There in Truth No Beauty?" in 1968.


Didja Notice?


In this issue, the small ovoid vessel that carries the form of the Scotty from the universe of gas-based entities is more detailed and mechanical-looking than the plain ovoid seen in "I.D.I.C." Part 3. Likely this is due to the artistic license of each artist since each issue of this storyline has a different artist.


On page 17, the Scotty from the universe of gas-based entities refers to the botanical Kirk as Captain Plant-Kirk or Plirk.
