In 2268, he fell in love with Lieutenant Susan Anderson, but kept his feelings private. During a mission to transport oban, Webb and Anderson visited the cuddly animal, then approached the weave, a device which reflected abstract images of a person's inner feelings. Webb hoped that it would kindle a romance between them, but Anderson only felt friendship for him. Proximity to the weave triggered genetic engineering enhancements within oban, and it suddenly grew in to a frightening, tentacle-writhing creature. Webb and Anderson immediately reported the encounter to James T. Kirk and Spock. (TOS - Star Trek: The Manga - Shinsei Shinsei comic: "Oban")
