STARSHIP CAPTAIN ran from August 2009 to December 2011, and chronicled the adventures of Captain William Star and the crew of the Galactic Survey Ship Eagle. Chronologically, this intro story takes place after the Demon Wars, which raged across the quadrant and threatened to end Humanity until the Friendship of Worlds finally united to defeat the H'lspau. Woo hoo!
The comic was intended as an unashamed homage to original Trek, although nowhere near as good.
Starship Captain also appeared in limited form on Comic Fury, an excellent free webcomics hosting site.
The adventures of Captain Star and his crew continue in Starship Captain II
