Kirk/Spock relationship
This story 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. In one scene Spock reveals that his version of paradise is time alone on a primitive planet with Kirk. Kirk chastises Spock for verbalizing this wish in public, as he " away too much." Other licensed stories which hint at this relationship include the poem Soliloquy and the first printing of the TOS novel: Killing Time.
