Embrace the Wolf In addition, DC Comics published a one-shot comic book sequel to Robert Bloch's Star Trek episode "Wolf in the Fold," entitled Star Trek: The Next Generation: Embrace the Wolf (Wildstorm/DC Comics, 2000) (later reprinted in the collection Enemy Unseen (Wildstorm/DC Comics, 2001; ISBN 1-56389-765-2).

Embrace the Wolf was written by Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski, with art by Dave Hoover and Troy Hubbs.

The DC Comics Press release for this title reads as follows:

The disembodied evil being responsible for the crimes of Jack the Ripper an entity defeated by Captain James T. Kirk a century ago seeks revenge on Captain Picard. When a Federation-aligned planet is thrown into chaos by a wave of sudden, inexplicable violence and the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D arrives to investigate, Captain Picard and his crew discover the threat has its roots in a mission concluded by the original Enterprise nearly a century earlier, in "STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION¨ - EMBRACE THE WOLF. This Prestige one-shot serves as a sequel to the classic Star Trek episode "Wolf in the Fold," which introduced a disembodied force of evil known as Redjac...the power behind such mysterious killings as Earth's infamous Jack the Ripper murders.
