CharactersEdit

Canon characters listed below are linked to the main article about them. Non-canon characters are not linked, but those that recurred, appearing or being mentioned in more than one story, are defined further in Gold Key TOS characters.

Regular and recurringEdit

James T. Kirk 
Enterprise captain.
Spock 
Vulcan Enterprise exec and science officer. Spock appears on the cover of this issue inexplicably wearing an operations division redshirt, rather than his normal blue sciences division shirt.
Leonard McCoy 
Enterprise chief medical officer.
Montgomery Scott 
Enterprise chief engineer.
Hikaru Sulu 
Enterprise helmsman.
Uhura 
Enterprise communications officer.
Pavel Chekov 
Enterprise security officer and navigator. Chekov is referred to as "security officer" in this story, foreshadowing a role he would later assume in canon productions. Although paged by name to the briefing room, he neither appears nor has any dialog in this issue.
Manning 
Command division Enterprise crewman detailed to guard the mummy. He was knocked unconscious, along with his partner, while the mummy altered the ship's computer. Manning appears again in "The Perfect Dream".

OthersEdit

Moria Starr 
Doctor, a Federation expert on interstellar archaeology.
Stephen Mohr 
Doctor who was head of the archeology project.
Romulan commander 
Female Romulan starship commander who ordered her vessel in pursuit of the approaching Enterprise.
Romulan officer 
Helmeted Romulan man who provides information to the Romulan commander on her bridge.
Guard crewman
Command division Enterprise crewman detailed to guard the mummy. He was knocked unconscious, along with Manning, while he mummy altered the ship's computer.
Asherman
Command division Enterprise crewman detailed to guard the mummy on a subsequent shift. Asherman joked that someone might be after the mummy's bandages moments before it attacked him.
Levitz
Command division Enterprise crewman detailed to guard the mummy on a subsequent shift. Levitz asked Asherman why anyone would be after a mummy moments before Asherman warned it was attacking him.
Williams 
Blond Enterprise command division crewman, part of Spock's landing party. Williams' carelessness causes him to lean on a switch that brings the mummy machinery to life.
Jennings 
Enterprise command division crewman, part of Spock's landing party. Jennings was captured by the mummies, who attempt to convert him to a cyborg. Presumably, Jennings is also the crewman shown on the cover of the issue, although in that illustration he wears an operations division redshirt rather than his gold tunic from the interior panels. It was not revealed how much damage the conversion process did to Jennings's body before the rest of the party intervened against the mummies.
Engineering crewman 
Command division Enterprise crewman working in engineering. He warned Scotty when the mummy entered the chamber.
