Reactions and Reviews
The only thing wrong with this story is that I wish it had been longer - yet it was perfectly complete! I enjoyed the bit about Kirk's yeomen, how Janice left a "stack of notes two decks high" so Vorman would be able to look after Kirk properly. Kirk and Spock were totally in-character, from how Kirk figured out who Pike had meant (and how he went about revealing what he knew), to Spock's biasing himself for the "cultural error' and his icy response to Kirk's questions. A very good little story.
