Why You Should Read This:
Waldorph’s vision of the Star Trek history is one that I hold dear. This story, however, is a step outside that. Dark, entrancing, it shows the addiction that holds Spock and Kirk together, and shows how their loyalty feeds into something that is not quite right, although if you point that out, you won’t be around long enough to say it.
