Summary

Soliloquy is a sonnet written by Marguerite B. Thompson. It was originally published in Star Trek: The New Voyages 2, a collection of short stories published by Bantam Books in 1978.

The final lines of this monologue are, "What will they find when I am ripped apart? 'I love you, Captain,' written on my heart."

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.
