Spock's reflections over McCoy's death. This very touching story was published, with Coleen's permission, on our fanzine Inside Star Trek # 70. Now, we are posting it here, as a tribute of honor to De Forest Kelly.
A love vs logic story. A young woman is going to face koon-ut-kal-if-fee. She has to decide if she will accept her bondmate or allow her lover to challenge him. Author's note: I wrote this story many years ago, when I knew very little about Star Trek and
Vulcans. After that I've learned things, which led me to change some of my ideas about Vulcan culture
(i.e.: If you like to know what I currently think about women's place in Vulcan society, look here). Anyway, I decided to leave the story as it was. (A. P.)
A story of friendship, with a touch of malice. By forcing him to play and old game, Captain Kirk tries to find out what Spock truly feels toward him. Spock reacts in a very Vulcan way. Those who hate the idea that between Spock and his Captain might be something more than friendship should not read it.
