Summary

Elegy for Charlie is a poem written in the first person sense from a crew member of the Enterprise, possibly Yeoman Janice Rand, dedicated to Charlie Evans.

The poem describes being awoken by the sound of a weeping star and "a voice I shouldn't have heard". It reflects regret for having to leave Charlie with the Thasians at the end of the Original Series episode Charlie X, beings that are non-corporeal and couldn't even be touched.

The poem reflects that sadness and loneliness, ending with

"The entire universe stretches beyond, and I have no answers to give save the words that I send to the galaxy's end to comfort a weeping star,

(for Charlie, wherever you are)"
