Editorial, p. 5

Friendship and Obligation / Luba Kmetyk p. 12
Short-short of Spock and partner fearing discovery by their friend... the twist is that his partner is McCoy.
* Bridle for a Nightmare / Elizabeth Clair p. 13-40
This was a fun one - suspenseful, erotic, witty and sweet. McCoy has (inadvertently) killed an alien; in the hearing, he reveals that she had been giving him gruesome but erotic nightmares in which he dies after or during sex with her. He is acquitted but can't get rid of the nightmares until a female colleague forces him into therapy under a hypno-gizmo that projects the dreams so that he can change them. Dream 1: he rescues a drowning woman who then kills him; this time he kills her instead - and wakes having ejaculated and worried about seeing himself as a sex-killer. Dream 2: he is lured into sex on a sacrificial altar and she cuts his heart out; he manages to break the knife, then rapes her, waking to another orgasm and now disturbed that he has these rape fantasies. Dream 3: a harem girl lures him to bed then cuts his head off when the sultan comes back; this time he escapes to safety on a horse, taking her with him, and he ends it by making tender and skillful love to her, achieving his cure. On waking he realizes that he was in fact fondling the therapist; they decide to "try for four."
The Big E Meets the Big O, or, The Ultimate Trek Tail / Lora Rene p. 41-44
Pretty funny little romp; zine author requires the entire crew to orgasm together to give her the energy to create a new universe. Spock has to round up a bunch of orgies into one big orgy - and then join in.
Pon Farr Articles p. 45-58
Articles on the biology of pon farr by Marie Hietala, Jeanne Webster, Johana Cantor, Elyse Grasso, Jean Lorrah, Marcia Mathog.

The Ballad of Jim, Max and Floo / Poblocki and/or Posmithi - limericks re Kirk, cat & sex.
* Virgin Territory / Paula Smith - Kirk is required to deflower a 12-year-old princess. Nicely done.
A Third Lazarus / C.R. Faddis - Kirk dies for four minutes to contact invaders from another plane.
* Bound / Paula Smith - Poem. A new take on the Vulcan bonding - Kirk has bonded with Spock to save him in pon farr and now finds that he, too, is only capable of sex every seven years, and the loss fills him hate for Spock.
* Up for the Honeymoon / Paula Block p. 72-77
Faulwell story. McCoy and Sadie are newly wed, but McCoy is recovering from a recent myocardial infarction, so Sadie decides to take things into her own hands - and mouth. Paula's usual fine characterization & dialogue.
The Kama Vulcan / Paula Smith p. 78-82
Well, ya gotta be in the mood for puns for this one... but if you are, it's a hoot.
Solstice / Jane Firmstone p. 83-88
Kirk's wife (of 30 years) Sarah reminisces over their first night together.
The Easy Way Out / Caroling Nixon p. 88-89
Article encouraging fans to create female characters to match Kirk & Spock, rather than matching them to each other.
Kismet / Dani Morin p. 90-91
Uhura and Chapel, lovers, speculate on the gossip that Kirk and Spock are, too. (Nice point that Chapel's infatuation with Spock is a cover for her true love.
There Goes Paradise / Johanna Cantor p. 92-99
Makora and Sayanna (The Apple) take lessons on "the touching" from Chekov and Martha - but Sayanna finds it hurts. Uhura to the rescue, with some lube. Nicely written, rather believable sequel to the episode.

Zap! says, God. Or someone.
A Time of Birth / Elyse M. Grasso, p. 35-52

B'Yadu / Cardiane Wedgett, p. 61-72
As a result of some conveniently mysterious galactic phenomenon, a pre-reform Vulcan woman has ended up on the Enterprise at an inconvenient time in her cycle. She decides on the captain as the alpha male, but he proves insufficient, and she resorts to the apparently distasteful modern Vulcan. McCoy catches on when she turns out to be pregnant with twins. Amusing.

Editorial, p. 3
Jiggle / Darnell Starwinge, p. 4-7
A young lieutenant who has been diligently using her new bust developer attempts to make the most of her escort duty with a visiting admiral, with startling results when the device proves unfortunately responsive to a particular pitch.
Paradise Regained / Johanna Cantor, p. 8-13
The Enterprise agronomy specialists inform Akuta that there will be a pollination exercise tomorrow.

More of Gordon's cartoons.
Shattered Illusions / Crystal Ann Taylor, p. 21-28

The Lady of the Lyra / Jane Firmstone, p. 29-40
It's pon farr, but this time Spock has made arrangements with a skilled professional to take care of him.
The Good Samaritans / Anji Valenza, p. 43-55
Non-Trek. A fish-like being who has been a first-contact specialist crashes on a planet to die, but the feathered inhabitants rescue it as an emissary of their new god. The group turn out to be refugees; their new god has given them a sexual freedom that disturbs the others of their kind, who are pursuing them. The group is rescued by a humanoid, who has come after the fish - now dead - and transplanted to a suitable planet.
The Pendulum / Rebecca Ross, p. 56-71
Lt. Kelly Marchant helps Spock through a surprise attack of pon farr while on landing party. In plak tow, Spock sees her as T'Pring and treats her accordingly - very roughly. Back aboard ship, things turn pleasurable as the fever winds down.
Cross Currents / Marion Zimmer Bradley, p. 72-73
Christine Chapel and Janice Rand use their supposed infatuations with, respectively, Spock and Kirk, as cover for their relationship.
Discovery / Anne C. Knott, p. 74-78
A nice little K/S idyll. Kirk and Spock are stranded for several weeks on a safe and snug little planet. The only real problem is Kirk's embarrassment over his own steadily increasing horniness, inexplicably triggered by Spock's presence. Kirk is surprised to find the Vulcan not only aware of his predicament, but amenable to a solution.
*For A' That / Nancy Zingrone Solomon, p. 79-95
A fine story that packs in a good plot, a fine character study of Scotty, and a bit of romance. Scott is engaging in a quiet, companionable romance with fellow-Scot Maggie Buchan, the ship's new Psych Chief - helping her build her loom and enjoying her home-cooking and whiskey. They and the rest of deck 5 wake to find the environmental controls gone haywire, nearly freezing most of the officers; Scott races to assist in Kirk's cabin, where to his shock he finds McCoy working on both Kirk and Spock, who have fallen unconscious cuddled up together. Most of the story revolves around Scott's struggle to come to terms with that relationship. Excellent writing. There's a nice little nod to the Faulwell series, mentioning her as McCoy's lass.
Learner's Permit / Mr. Goodwrench, p. 96-100
Non-Trek first-time story "from the adventures of Kenney Dantley"
Samurai Kitty / Paula Smith, p. 103

Obsession

Obsession #1

 
1982

Obsession #2
Ed. Mary Lowe & Katharine Scarritt, Houston, TX, April 1982, 112p.
(2nd printing May 1985)
Cover: Mary Lowe; back cover: Pat Kilner

* Double Play / Pamela Rose p. 3-19
Kirk is recruited for some espionage work, partnered with a beautiful but caustic woman, and is offended to find that it is his role, not hers,to let their (male) target agent seduce him. He does so, feeling fouled, and Phillip reveals that he knew about them all along, he did not have the object they were seeking, and he went through with the seduction only to teach Kirk what Starfleet Intelligence would do to him. Kirk quits despite all their plays on his loyalty, with a final, "Fuck the Federation." A delightful read.
* Eclipse / Mary Lowe p. 23-33
Very well-written exploration of Spock's decision to leave Enterprise, from Kirk's pov as his world falls apart. Excellent characterization, apart from an overly intense Spock, which is pivotal to this interpretation. Spock will not quite explain his reasons, but it has to do with getting too close to Kirk, to losing his Vulcan-ness. Nice Kirk/McCoy scene as the doctor insists that Kirk must stay with the ship. Fade out on Kirk pondering 5 years of lonely command without Spock, remembering Kollos' dismay over the fate of humans, locked alone in a hollow shell.
* Timeless Night / Katharine Scarritt & Mary Lowe p. 37-49
Spock returns (as Starnek) from a future in which Kirk has died of an unidentified accident, and Earth was subsequently destroyed by V'ger, leaving Starfleet and the Federtion devoid of the driving force of humans. Kirk is slowly rotting of red tape in the Admiralty. Spock manages to rescue him, and vanishes. Excellent writing.
* Graven Image / Mary Lowe p. 54-57 [rep from Deck Five Digest]
Spock clones the dead Kirk, and calls on an apalled McCoy to save the embryo. Lovely characterization.
** Graven Image, Part 2 / Lezlie Shell p. 59-72
Sequel to Graven Image. The embryo has grown into 15-year-old Jamie, who has been told he is Jim Kirk's son, and is being raised by Spock and McCoy. McCoy is hiding the fact that he is dying of his xenopolycythemia. Jamie is attempting to please Spock, but is discovering that his bliss is acting, not science, and does not want to attend the Academy. Lovely, intense writing without being mushy. Nice family conflicts, and a great death scene for McCoy.
* Who Marks the Sparrow's Fall / Cynthia Lockwood p. 75-98
Early days on the Enterprise; Kirk is just getting to know Spock and McCoy, and is faced with two grisly situations in which the Prime Directive is in force and he must stand by and watch tragedies unfold. This does a nice job of setting up the interactions of the Big Three, as well as Kirk's unorthodox reaction to Prime Directive situations.
Betrayal by Instinct, Part I / Katharine Scarritt p. 101-111
My copy was missing p. 109-110, making this story incomprehensible. The landing party is sent to prevent civil war on a planet governed by some religious hierarchy.
Duty Roster p. 112 staff grafitti sheet

Noteworthy poetry:
* Games / Sharon Fetter p. 52
A recital of Enterprise events as moves in chess and poker. Clever.

Cover: Laura Virgil; centerfold: Suzan Lovett
Cover price: not stated.

** Starting Point / Sue Keenan p. 1-20
Nice version of McCoy's arrival on Enterprise and meeting with Kirk. After "Where No Man," Mark Piper has suffered a near-fatal heart attack, leaving an insecure, young Captain Kirk feeling that he is losing all of his friends. As they race to a facility where Piper can receive surgery, they pick up McCoy as acting CMO, worn out and furious at being dragged away from a plague mission just as he was closing in on the answer. Lovely characterization and conflicts emerge. McCoy's file is packed equally with commendations and insubordinations, and he can't seem to hold any assignment for long. Kirk sees him as undependable, neglecting his duty to Piper to do his research, and vows to make this his shortest tour yet. A fine confrontation arises when Piper suffers another attack and Kirk assails McCoy for heading off to bed instead of looking after Piper; of course, McCoy has worked himself so hard over the plague cure that he dare not operate without a few hours' sleep. All resolves. Excellent writing, lots of impact without schmaltz.
* A Night to Remember / Cathy Brooks p. 23-25
Interesting vignette with a sweet fare-thee-well between McCoy and Tonia Barrows (from "Shore Leave"), whom he encounters when Kirk drags him to a bar on shore leave.
The Draftee / Rosemarie Eierman p. 29-30
Vignette of McCoy's arrival back on Enterprise for ST:TMP, wishing he'd not taken reserve status.
Home / Ingrid Cross p. 32-35
Post-V'ger, McCoy analyses his longing for home.
Journey Home / Linda Neel p. 36-38
Kirk/McCoy dialogue over the Doctor's desire to go home after V'ger.
A Handful of Time / Florence Butler p. 39-44
McCoy attempts to comfort Uhura, who has had a renewed attack of grief over a murdered lover and aborted child as another crewwoman's pregnancy is celebrated. Nice writing and an interesting premise/pairing, marred by the fact that McCoy is willing to proceed directly from counselor/confidante to lover, which seems startlingly unprofessional.
The Staff / Sue Keenan p. 45
McCoy pondering - or perhaps hallucinating - about the caduceus, apparently at the moment of death.
* Gifts Freely Given / Diane Mikiewiecz & Cindy Deren p. 46-59
After "Dagger of the Mind," McCoy lets slip to Kirk that Spock had used a mind meld. When Kirk dresses Spock down for not placing that talent at his disposal, McCoy defends Spock, recognizing that he does not want to explain that one of the few conditions under which he will use it is to save Kirk. Later, on a landing party, McCoy breaks a local taboo and is condemned to be eaten alive by fireneedles. Kirk and Spock manage to rescue him, but he remains in agony for some time before Enterprise can be contacted. Spock performs a meld to control the pain, and finds that even through the pain McCoy is desperate to get them to help the inhabitants, starving in a drought. When Kirk later tells him of the meld, McCoy is pleased to find himself among Spock's conditions for use of the meld. Interesting first-contact point here is that although the Enterprise could cause rain, they don't dare do so, for it would tend to confirm the inhabitants' belief that executing the thief pleased the gods and caused the rain.
Eternal Flames, Forever Pain / Jeanie Humphrey p. 60-64
Another explanation of McCoy's divorce and arrival in Starfleet. In this one, his wife is not only constantly bitching but also sleeping around fairly openly with numerous partners. Her younger sister Nicki - who works with McCoy, has a crush on him, and is distraught at seeing Ari destroy him in a spiral of alcoholism - forces him to confront the truth and take steps for the divorce.
Return to Genesis / L. Jeanne Powers p. 70-75
Kirk obsesses over dreams of Spock trying to contact him, and runs off to Genesis. Scott and McCoy pursue, and arrive to find Kirk chatting with Spock's decomposing corpse.
The Gift of Love, Too / Jeanne Noga p. 79-102
McCoy finds romance with his technician Lisa Jarmane. But after a first-contact attack in which McCoy is darted with poison and unnamed things happen to Lisa, she will not see him and runs away for psychological treatment. (Kirk refuses to even tell McCoy she is gone, which seems odd...)
Poetry:
Sol III; Vulcan / Linda Slusher - Spock & McCoy soliloquizing on one another's homeworlds
Rage Against the Dying of the Light / Sherry Veltkamp - McCoy battling Death for Uhura
Filk: McCoy's Dilemma ("With Her Head Tucked ...") / Karen Mitchell p. 66-67 TWOK & SFS

1,001 Trek Tales #1
Ed. Donna Chisholm, Rockland, MA, Jun 1977, 106p.
Cover: Mary Beth Santorelli, back cover: Richard Ciccarelli
Cover price: $3.50

The best thing about this zine is a number of scattered ad cartoons for products such as Drearios and Mope - and an illo for a Kraith story typo, showing Kirk engaged in "uncontrollable mink-linking."

After the Dark / Johanna Cantor p. 3-17
Post-"Devil In the Dark." Spock remains in some kind of mental contact with Mother Horta, and is frantic to find stray eggs that have been hoarded by miners (they need to imprint on hatching). Nice start, but this story doesn't do much with it.
Winds of Change / MAE p. 21-31
Rather dull little story of Chekov's first command, the scoutship Diana, in which he stares down an evil Klingon.
Phaeton / Roberta Rogow p. 36-41
Scotty visits Carolyn Palamas and her (and Apollo's) son Phaeton, and the boy tries to fly too soon and crashes into the sea.
If Only Robin Hood / R.M. Shutter p. 46-57
No familiar ST characters. A landing party encounters a former interstellar thief - and former lover of one of the women - now living in a castle on a medieval planet, and refusing to be taken back.
Visions / George Hayes p. 64-66
An unwary member of a landing party is caught in an ancient alien fun house. No familiar ST characters.
Undecided Man / Mry Hartery p. 68-77
Captain Christopher, following "Tomorrow is Yesterday" is beginning to break down and lose his career as odd memories surface - until his wife announces her pregnancy, and he remembers enough to be reassured that all is as it should be. Best of show in this zine.
Forever Apart / J. P. Sinclair p. 82-103
A rescued scientific party turns out to include Joanna McCoy (McCoy doesn't recognize her until Kirk introduces them). McCoy practically throws Joanna at Jim; the pair are about to marry, but Joanna calls it off after several people are killed on a mission, deciding that she cannot live with the fear of harm to a beloved. A rather lackluster interpretation of the Kirk/Joanna scenario.

1996

*Only Human[Novel]
by Holly Trueblood. Orion Press, Albany, GA, 1996 176p
Cover: Chris Meyers

Very well written, if a bit over-long on introspection about Spock's romance.
Nice explanation of Spock's motivation for going off to Kohlinar - in this one, he explores his human side, falls rather in love with it as he falls in love with his colleague Lauren, but ultimately becomes thoroughly disillusioned with it and determined to eliminate it. Spock's increasing humanness is not really adequately explained in a physiological sense, but very nicely portrayed. He cottons on rather later than we do, of course.
Basic plotline: Spock goes undercover working on the campaign of the Unity (as opposed to the human-centrist Separationist) party candidate to see if there is something amiss about him. He needs to look human but be Vulcan to get an impression from his handshake. Meanwhile he finds himself enjoying his human side and exploring it even to the extent of hangovers and dreams. In a nicely done subplot, he is furious with Sarek for impregnating Amanda and endangering her life. His newly found beloved, unfortunately (and rather predictably, I thought), turns out to be violently anti-alien from a childhood incident.
Very enjoyable, even though the Federation political arena is not one I would normally take an interest in.

The Day They All Came Home
[reprinted in Orion Archives #4 and OA 2001: Interludes ]
The interlude on Vulcan before STIV: Admiral Sheridan is out to get Kirk for his cowboy antics; McCoy inadvertently helps Spock recover his full self; Saavik struggles with Spock's awareness of how she saved him on Genesis, and forms a relationship with Sulu; Sarek takes on the task of rescuing the gang from Starfleet hardliners by Vulcan legal channels. Some nice bits. Unfortunately, it all finishes up with an unneccessary Klingon plot to eliminate Kirk & co. - they've been using Sheridan all along.

Orion Archives 2001 Re-Issue
Ed. Randall Landers, Orion Press, Albany, GA

[In 2001, Randy ambitiously re-issued selections from Orion Press publications in this massive set arranged chronologically by stardate of occurrence. The volumes are in reduced format and without artwork except for covers. I did a lot of proof-reading for him on these, and he generously sent me the entire collection when it was ready. Comments are given for items in the listing for the 2001 re-issue, and, if I have it, that for the original, but not in the listings for the earlier printed/electronic Orion Archives collections.]


 

Orion Archives 2001 Re-Issue: The Beginnings (2234-2265)

* Sam / Ann Zewen p. 3-8
[rep. Orion #33]
Young Jim and his brother, explaining why Jim calls him Sam.
** Popcorn / Chris Dickenson p. 9-14
[also Orion Archives #6]
While Spock and McCoy await news of Spock's dying aunt Grayson, Spock reminisces about his first visit to Earth, and reveals to McCoy that "I take after my father's side when it comes to look's, Doctor, but I pop corn like a Grayson.
* The Killer Instinct / Phillip A. Mucha p. 15-16
[rep; Orion #33]
Young Spock & his sehlat
* Light Speed in an 85 Mph Zone / D. G. Littleford p. 17-19
[rep; Antares #6]
Cute little vignette - young Kirk is celebrating his admission to SF Academy by getting another traffic ticket, forcing the long-suffering cop to admit he'll miss him.
** The Anniversary Gift / Donna C. Clark p. 20-28
[also Orion Archives #3]
Nicely written scenes of McCoy's divorce from Heather, over his ignoring her for his work.
Victory / Mark C. Henrie p. 29-49
[also Orion Archives #2]
Salt / Linda McInnis p. 50-68
[rep; Stardate #21; also Orion Arch#2]
First Best Destinies / Rowena G. Warner p. 69-75
[also Orion Archives #2]
The Medal / D. G. Littleford p. 76-81
[rep; Antares #2, 1998]
Spock and Sarek at odds over an act of violence that earned Spock a medal of valor.
The Difference / Chris Dickenson p. 82-91
[also Orion Archives #6; OA 2001 - Interludes]
The Fire Bringer / Jane Yambe p. 92-105
[also Orion Archives #3]
Home Sweet Home / Nicole Comtet p. 106-123
[rep; Antares #4]
The E has recovered an old Vulcan probe; Vulcan demands its return and Spock has an unsatisfactory return to Vulcan and equally unsatisfactory encounter with Dad. This sort of story, with a racist elite in control on Vulcan, keeps popping up - doesn't seem to fit to me, but then I've never reconciled Vulcan logic with Vulcan hoo-ha.
* The Spider's Lair / Randall Landers p. 124-137
[rep: Antares 5; also OA 2001-Capt. Sulu]
Evil "Q'xl%" (pronounced Kicksulpop) shows up every 30 years to slurp up 5 insignificant lives. It happens to take them from a landing party of the Shenandoah, commanded by Kirk and his second Gary Mitchell, with Sulu present. It is unaffected by laser weapons. Sulu is sent back 30 years later to try again. A nice touch here is that we don't know if Sulu has managed or not - he does lose his 5 crew, though. Interesting contrasts of Sulu's command crew and Kirk's - Sulu's does not come together like that of Enterprise.
* Boy Scout / Ann Zewen p. 138-214
[rep; novel]
Nice job on the background of Kirk & Carol Marcus. After a disastrous tour on the Pegasus, in which Lt. Commander Kirk became a hero by getting everyone home after the entire bridge crew was wiped out, Kirk is being pushed into early promotion and captaincy of the Enterprise. He wavers, wanting to take a ground assignment to have Carol and David back in his life, and slowly wins over David. Things go awry when Kirk accompanies David on an introductory boy-scout camping trip that goes all wrong. Though he's the hero again, and discovers that command comes naturally to him, Carol is unwilling to ever face that kind of worry again. Very nice set-up for the movies.

[rep; Antares 3]
Kirk attends dying security guard
The Salos Sellout / Thomas C. Harden p. 7-17
[also Orion Archives #1]
Standard fare. Kirk's former professor betrays the Federation he feels has wronged him by selling off dilithium on the sly.
To Coin a Phrase / Randall Landers p. 18-19
[also Orion Archives #3]
Why does McCoy know all those outdated idioms? Cute 2-pager.
The Night Watch / d. William Roberts p. 20-32
[rep; Orion #33]
Riley takes a new Irish lieutenant - Kelsey - under his wing for final exams - Kirk's own Kobayashi Maru scenario. A tad predictable but a nice enough read.

[also Orion Archives #1]
Kirk vignette - musing on the lack of a beach and finding that that's okay as long as he has his ship.
Runner / Steven K. Dixon p. 36-53
[rep; Orion #22; also Orion Archives #3)
Orion battle story full of flaws in plot, characterization & style.
Blood is Thicker / Chris Dickenson p. 54-64
[also Orion Archives #6]
Spock is pissed off at Kirk for having risked himself on a mission and been attacked by a vampire; Kirk suffers from nightmares in which Spock is the vampire. They reconcile when he calls out to Spock, realizes that it was only when Spock left him that he was afraid, and apologizes.
* Rites of Passage / d. William Roberts p. 65-85
[rep: Orion 34]
Nicely done. Kelsey finds himself with a dying Kirk and a bunch of smart-ass Nova Cadets, supposedly supervising the survival test of their training, on a planet full of Romulans. The overconfident cadets fall into a Romulan trap, and most get killed - heroically. Except, of course, the Andorian who is the biggest jerk of the bunch.
* Music of the Night / Ann Zewen p. 86-107
[rep; Antares 1]
Uhura is trapped in a musical & mental fugue, and rescued by Spock with the help of tone-deaf Kirk.
** The Mindsweeper / Donna S. Frelick (novella) p. 108-241
Lovely, lovely, lovely. Great characterization; intriguing alien creature; beautifully handled relationship story; tight plotting of the adventure story; wicked villains...yum.
Kate Logan's ship Diana blows up while hauling cargo, causing her to be hauled before Starfleet, causing her to meet up with Kirk, who is in disgrace and being kept off Enterprise pending being charged with sexual crimes. All, of course, a ploy with Kirk as bait to catch a mole to get at evil Klingon Xhosar. Meanwhile, Enterprise, with McCoy increasingly disturbed as Kirk refuses to answer his calls, is off on a mission to Bellatrix XI looking for protomatter smugglers. And so is Kate, with her new ship Roxanne. Meanwhile Xhosar (hiss, boo!) has developed a warm and fuzzy relationship with The Mindsweeper, last of its kind, dying for knowledge, and now living in her head, sucking up new experience but beginning to have doubts. Well, after mayhem, murder, intrigue, delicious arguments and consternation... they all end up on Orionis V, the Mindsweeper's original home. Kirk hires Roxanne to take him to meet Xhosar - she gets impatient and sends them down planet to let the Mindsweeper at them. (Slight plot flaw - it is unclear how the Mindsweeper got out of Xhosar and back home, but it did.)The Mindsweeper is trying to figure out how to make contact. Jim and Kate make love in their last hours, unaware of the Mindsweeper participating and sucking up information about love and courage - it was just dying to meet a starship captain but is shy, so got in touch with Kate instead. Enterprise is investigating a smuggler's base they broke up. The Mindsweeper takes over Roxanne, sucking up more information - now a living ship, she zaps bad guys, rescues Kirk and Kate, and attacks Xhosar's base. Xhosare seems to do about as much damage in a tantrum as the white hats are doing with Roxanne. They escape planet, barely, and are rescued by Enterprise. Xhosar says the wrong thing to a Klingon captain and has her throat slit to everyone's satisfaction. Jim and Kate go their ways as they have to, but stay in love. Roxie stays in the ship and asks to be Kate's sister.
Sequels: Return to Tarsus; Children of Haole; Into the Nexus
Something to Remind You / Deborah A. Bailey p. 242-256
[rep; Antares 4]
Thoughts of music send Uhura into odd panic attack after the Nomad incident; Spock assists in her recovery.
Friendship's Song / Valerie A. Phillips p. 257- 262
[also Orion Archives 7]
As Spock recovers from fal-tor-pan, Uhura seeks him out to return an old favor. The flashback to her recovery from Nomad places the story in this set.
The Wait / Chris Dickenson P. 263-269
[rep from Idylls #3; also Orion Archives 4]
Uhura and Sulu are trapped in a chamber, awaiting rescue. Sulu confronts her over her coolness to him since her trip to the mirror universe.
** Last Picked / Pat Detmer p. 270-282
[rep; Antares 4]
Great romp for McCoy, getting to be the hero when the trio try to rescue a protestor and K & S wind up wrapped in glass silk by a big icky predator, and put into storage as dinner for the kids. I especially liked Spock's response: "Thank you for saving my sorry skinny green Vulcan butt."

Orion Archives 2001 Re-Issue: The First Mission (2266-2270) [TOS & TAS] - Vol. 2

** The Wreck of the Aurora Borealis / Pat Detmer p. 3-25
[rep; Antares 5]
Enterprise is assigned to guard a wreck full of gold dust, and ends up facing an angry cat, Orion raiders, and a large, amorphous, hungry space entity with a taste for gold. Creative, fun, well-executed.
* Banshee! / Mary Schuttler p. 26-33
[rep; Antares 6]
Nicely written despite the type of magical/supernatural premise I don't personally care for. A banshee haunts sickbay, almost killing Kirk until his link to Spock calls him in to the rescue - leaving Kirk knowing that he will die when he is alone.
The McAulliffe Rescue / Christina Schinella p. 34-71
[rep: Orion 32]
* Paragraph 17 / Anna Perotti p. 72-78
[rep; Antares 5]
In a first contact encounter, things go nicely with Kirk wining and dining the Beta Reticulan head of state until he discovers that though the people are startlinglingly human-like, their secondary sexual characteristics are reversed on that planet. Cute.
* Comeuppance / Pat Detmer p. 79-95
[rep; see Antares 5]
Humor columnist Rose Osborne, who has been having fun with the E-crew for some time, comes aboard. She loses her sense of humor after she accidentally encounters what's left of Yeoman Leslie Thompson after the Kelvans crystallized and crunched her, and becomes obsessed with understanding the girl and why she was on that mission. Charming. A bit trite having her finally understand by throwing herself in harm's way for Kirk, but all in all excellent.
** The Lesson / Pat Detmer p. 96-112
[rep; see Antares 5]
Jude Osborne the desk-jockey is sent by Starfleet to figure out what makes Kirk's command crew tick so well - and finds out with a vengeance on the bridge in the middle of a battle. Superbly written. Starts in battle, backtracks around in time to show vignettes of an unfortunate incident with a Vulcan roommate, shows the crew in normal mode and then in crisis. Nice touch is everyone's immediate reaction "Intruder! Who? Ah.. .Jude"
Meeting at Xanadu / Alex Rosen p. 113-133
[also Orion Archives #2]
In the Line of Duty / Nicole Comtet p. 134-233
[rep; novel - 2000]
[Landers: TWR]: Ever have one of those missions? James T. Kirk is given one here as he's ordered to transport the diplomatic delegation from dilithium rich Cygnet XII to Starbase 11 for meetings with the Federation ambassador. Unfortunately, the delegation has some peculiar notions. And Kirk thought Elaan of Troyius was difficult!
[KH]Somewhat predictable little romp, but entertaining enough. Enterprise is escorting a snooty delegation of Cygnetians - essentially Amazon warrior-women, in whose society males are assumed to be and kept inferior. So the crew has to work against an anti-male prejudice along with other oddities such as their fascination with Spock, invasive use of telepathy, and bratty telekinetic behavior. Lots of innuendo.
* Out on a Limb / Leigh Hall p. 234-250
[rep; Antares 2]
My entry to a ST contest, re-worked a bit. Originally, Babes in the Wood. What can I say - I liked it! This is the first time I've written a romp. McCoy et al encounter an all-too-friendly critter.

Orion Archives 2001 Re-Issue: The First Mission (2266-2270) [TOS & TAS] - Vol. 3

* After Paradise / Caroline Kummer p.3-13
[rep; Antares #6]
Kirk discovers that Spock has been working himself to death during the asteroid chase from "Paradise Syndrome" and teaches him a lesson about trusting his crew.
** Not a Bad Day's Work / Chris Dickenson p. 14-17
[also Orion Archives 6]
Scotty & McCoy encounter a child trapped in a cave-in; Scott effects rescue by means of a Welsh lullaby (the one James Doohan sings at cons).
The Unexplained / Mary Schuttler p. 18-25
[rep; Antares #6)
A Halloween story; Kirk recounts a nasty episode from his childhood in which he, Sam, Gary Mitchell, and the unfortunate Petey play with a Ouija board in a haunted house and Petey ends up bludgeoned by an psychopath's spirit.
** The Music Box / Ann Zewen p. 26-35
[also Orion Archives 6]
Chapel helps McCoy pick out the perfect graduation gift for Joanna, and tries to comfort him when he destroys it in a drunken frenzy when he learns of his xenopolycythemia.
* Tomb of Fear / Jill Thomasson p. 36-56
[also Orion Archives 6]
Post-"Empath" the boys are exploring an Egyptian-like archaeological dig, both Spock and Kirk mother-henning the Doctor who, indeed, has the heebie-jeebies with the similarities to the Minara incident - the scientists have disappeared here also. The explanation is a giant, beautiful and deadly snake. It gets McCoy as he draws it away from the injured Spock. Kirk kills it, modern medical miracles (the biggest plot hole - the lab on the planet just happens to have all they need to make the antidote) save McCoy, and they take the snake back to the ship. McCoy is about to autopsy it when it revives, gets him again, and disappears into the ductwork. McCoy finally confronts it, and his fears, in cargo bay, sedating it and convincing Kirk and Spock that he can take care of himself - before collapsing nicely into Spock's arms.
** Fairy Tale Ending / Joanne K. Seward p. 57-85
[rep: Orion 35]
Excellent cadets' coming-of-age story. A group of cadets get their space legs interning on Enterprise. It comes with a dose of hard reality when they have to assist with rescue efforts on a foundered ship and Carson is killed in her attempt to rescue a child.
* The Kenederis Incident / Jim Ausfahl p. 86-111
[rep; Antares 2]
The Keneds, their planet quarantined because of prior plague, are suddenly both afflicted with the plague themselves and suffering from violent attacks. Enterprise comes to the rescue. McCoy gets infected when a patient he's about to autopsy revives, and Spock works with him to find a treatment. Unfortunately, the treatment that works on McCoy leaves the Keneds brain-dead, whether their infections are mild or severe. It turns out that the Keneds are actually a bacterial creature themselves, inhabiting a variety of species on the planet, accounting for their planet's multiple sentient species who all consider themselves Kened. The plague is from a similar creature that has taken up residence.
* The Emancipator of Trill / D.G. Littleford p. 112-144
[rep; Antares 3]
Diplomatic and personal troubles ensue when a Trill ambassador, possibly inside a coerced host, views Kirk as her entertainment.
** Persephone's Dance / Mike S. Bagneski p. 145-195 [?]
Lots of points for characters, aliens and an interesting sci-fi premise. Deena Collins (human) and Kili (Kiloni - a birdlike species with reversed knees, one of the few sentient races derived from prey species) are investigating for life on planet Persephone prior to stabilizing its dual orbit to suit it for terraforming by the Kerlovec Corporation. They find none, and board Enterprise, which will do the job. But when Kerlovec himself comes aboard behaving suspiciously, they determine that there is, in fact, a crystalline life form indigenous to the planet - it stores its DNA-analog in a "zipped" form. While the planet is in its circular orbit life is as usual; when it encounters the gas giant Hades it is knocked into a comet-like orbit, a virus attacks the hosts, taking their genes with it as they cover the planet with spores, some of which end up in the lava created in the gravitational disturbances - which is required for the zipped crystals to grow. When the planet gets back to its sun, the crystals, powered by intense radiation, open up, spit out "bugs" which seed the planet and life she goes on. Clever and lots of fun.
** The Ride of the Valkyries / Nicole Comtet p. 196-227
[rep; Antares 3]
Uhura and Spock, on leave after a night at the opera, take on a young gang of motorcycle riders, including the son of a local dignitary. A really lovely romp.
** The Ambassador's Taxi / Jim Ausfahl p. 228-249
[rep; Antares #6]
Points for excellent new lifeforms. The dreaded ambassador turns out to be Hoorash, a tree-like silicate life form requiring high temperatures. Spock & McCoy visit him in his "pup tent" in the shuttle bay, inside little egg carts. Duties finished, Hoorash is anxious to get home to Suzr before his deathly-ill and dearest lifemate dies. So, the E cuts across Klingon space. Hoorash has to rescue them by stealing dilithium crystals from the Klingon ship, but is injured in the process. McCoy manages to save him by transfusing a solder alloy Scotty rigs up. When they reach Suzr, he does the same for Hrashass, buying her years of life.

* A Serpent in Eden / Jim Ausfahl p. 110-161
[rep; Antares 6]
Though I couldn't follow the set-up for this little Chekov whodunit, it was delightfully written with a plausible new civilization. Chekov goes undercover as Socath, a Seeker in a rigid (pre-contact) caste society, trying to figure out what has become of a vanished starbase. He is only allowed to speak in questions, which is one of the finest points of the story. He is immediately nabbed to be on a jury in a murder incident and turns detective. Evidence points to Romulan involvement - all such evidence is hushed up by Jonax, their jury's Holder of Hidden Knowledge. I didn't quite follow the resolution - the Holder evidently decides the time has come to reveal his Hidden Knowledge - the existence of other planets and peoples - because some kind of danger of paradox is now past.

[also Orion Archives 5]
"The Stradia resistance fighters and Captain James Kirk had vanquished the Klingon invasion force. But were they really gone? Not if all the recent sabotage was any indication." Ann's nice writing, with some good Spock/McCoy scenes - especially when Kirk and Spock beam down to get the Klingon invaders. Spock orders McCoy to stay behind, he goes down anyway, and ends up taking a disruptor blast that Spock has dodged. A bit marred for me by the common Orion sub-plot of Kirk romancing a rape-victim into recovery. As if a little un-committed sex is the solution.

Oath of Vengeance / Rick Endres p. 3-60
[rep; Stardate (GA) #8; also Serenidad Collection]
The Klingons have returned to Serenidad to lay claim to that planet's vast dilithium wealth. They have captured both Prince Consort Carlos and Princess Teresa and plan to extract their vengeance on the young lovers, unless a certain starship captain can stop them in time.
I find all of the Serenidad series overly violent and rather tedious. Teresa is cardboard, just there for torture fantasies.

Klingons! / Randall Landers with Rick Endres p. 170-242
[also Orion Archives 3]
An action/adventure trilogy, centered on Klingon race wars and a Klingon-trained spy on the ship. Standard fare, with a few nice character bits. One disturbing feature is Starfleet's use of perscans - glossed over by so many of us. Who would sign up with that level of invasion of privacy? A sensible tidbit is that the Organians will only take action if the war gets too close to them so that the violence disturbs them.
To Capture God
Amid factional wars among the Klingon races, McCoy is captured as bait, resulting in Spock's apparent death. However, he has been simultaneously whisked off by a platypus-ish Evern planning to use present him to his church-ruled world as a lesser Star God, and thereby take over the planet. Meanwhile, mourning Spock, Enterprise heads for a starbase to deliver a Klingon defector, doing battle with Kor and others who try to destroy the Enterprise to eliminate both their spy and their defector. They just happen to head for Evern to do some repairs, where they find Spock, who has been attempting to contact them through mind-links, producing nightmares.
An Assassin in Our Midst
The Klingon agent assassinates the defector, along with several crewmen, before we discover it to be Chekov's lover, and he kills her to protect Kirk.
To Deny All Truths
Kor is recalled, but instead, goes off to invade Earth. Enterprise, damaged, is ordered to the defense, but heads for Organia instead. Kor creates a bloodbath until he is challenged and killed by a Kh'myr; the Organians reset the timeline to undo the tragedies.

Serenidad: The Cost of Freedom / Rick Endres p. 37-223
[pt 1 - ?; pt. 2 - Orion 22; pt. 3 - Orion 24; Serenidad Series]
Grisly continuation of the Serenidad saga. Teresa has been raped and tortured and mind-wiped and finds she is pregnant with a Klingon baby which McCoy refuses to abort. Klingons virtually wipe out the Serenidad government and put Carlos and Teresa under the mindsifter. Carlos gets converted into a Klingon puppet. Teresa can't be converted, so she is tortured instead. Just about everybody is dead, Jim, in very bloody ways, by the time the Enterprise ignores orders and joins the fray. Valkris appears here as sister/lover assassin-buddy to Klingon warrior wonder woman L'yan, whom Carlos manages to kill in the end. And McCoy (pushing 50?) is in love with Teresa (18 or so). Yeah, right.
Teresa / Rick Endres p. 224-240
[also Serenidad Series]
After the Klingons are repulsed, Teresa must deal with those who would have her get rid of her half-Kligon child, ponder her growing affection for McCoy, bury Carlos, and assert her crown rights to the Council. Valkris discovers how her lover died, and vows vengeance.

Kirk is mooning over his lost true love (Edith) and the recent loss of a crewman, and won't talk to Spock & McCoy. Meanwhile, Peter Kirk has grown up into a jerk and takes up with bad company in the form of a crewman who has a plan to steal the crystals the Klingons were after in the first place and sell them to them. Koloth, on the same planet, encourages the thief by letting him use a beam that messes everything up on the Enterprise every time the ship passes by. Typical, but nicely done tv ending with a bomb about to go off, last-second rescue by Sulu's arrival, Jaeger saved by Spock's research, Peter redeeming himself by rescuing the only colleague who could tolerate him, and Gretchen & Chekov married.

Spock makes the passing relatively comfortable for the doctor, who retains his spark and feistiness to the end - which comes from a previously unknown virus. Moving and fun -- and the emphasis on an afterlife does not spoil it for those of us who find that illogical. Nice touch is the revelation that there really is a "second star to the right and straight on till morning" - at least on Vulcan.

The murder of Princess Teresa, now McCoy's wife, and their two sons, putting an end to that line from the Orion Universe. (Can't say I'm sorry. I was tired of her several episodes ago...) Uhura as First Officer; serious conflict between Chekov & Randy's rather arrogant Sulu over search strategy for the Jenolen. Main plot concerns a Tholian "swarm" - based on fire ants - into Federation territory, ending with Chekov presiding over genocide after Spock's unsuccessful negotiations. Also a reporter hovering around causing trouble. Randy's Chekov is very Jewish. Very nice characterization on Chekov, especially the Russian Rules of Engagement.

Enterprise recovers the sole survivor of an Orion raid - a young woman in whom McCoy takes a paternal, and Chekov a romantic interest. She is predictably done in by her own hate. Reasonably well written, and a couple of nice illos, but a not-very convincing plot. The author can't seem to make up her mind whether the gang are downplanet for shore leave or to catch a bunch of bloodthirsty Orions.

Mutual Corruption (editorial) / Amy Falkowitz, p. 2-3
A Solitary Knife / Eileen Roy, p. 7-17
After "Amok Time," McCoy threatens Spock with a medical discharge on grounds of suicidal tendencies if he doesn't get himself safely married within four months. Fortuitously, Enterprise just happens to rescue a stranded group of scientists which includes a Vulcan who has recently lost her mate, and nature takes its course. Spock is not happy about not being able to make his own choice for love, but (in a nicely-done scene) gets no sympathy from a bitter McCoy. Things look up as Spock begins to know his wife better. The bitter-almond pheromones were a sweet touch.
Portfolio / Leslie Fish, 3p of illos
Game of Chance / Frankie Jemison, p. 19-60
Overly intelligent beings run an experiment/wager on Kirk (seen as a non-intelligence and therefore fair game for their games), changing his nature so that Spock is now the sole object of his obsessive desire. This produces much breast-beating among Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. With consummation, Kirk and Spock are semi-bonded, but Spock eventually manages to undo most of the changes, returning Kirk to his former self, but with memories of their forbidden love intact.
The All-Purpose Love Scene / Melanie Rawn, p. 61-62
Erotica Fantastique portfolio / Edith Crowe, following p. 62
Ni Var for a Desert Rose / Juanita Salicrup, p. 64-89
A nicely-done version of the Koon-ut-Kalifee in which Stonn bails instead of challenging as he and T'Pring had planned, and Spock and T'Pring are joined. The newlyweds' relationship is naturally complicated by their awareness of each other's previous attachments - to Leila and Stonn - not to mention the fact that they pretty much despise one another. But they manage to effect a sweet reconciliation.

Sonnet to a Vulcan Lover / Edith Crowe
