Information[]

  • Kirk/Spock relationship - This poem is a rare example of a licensed work that alludes to a more-than-platonic relationship between Kirk and Spock, as popularized more often in unofficial slash fiction. Other licensed stories which hint at this relationship include the TOS short story: "The Winged Dreamers" and the first printing of the TOS novel: Killing Time.
