From the editorial: "Welcome to your latest injection of hot sex... I remember how I was introduced to this type of fan-friction. Lillie Deans had a book she lovingly called, 'The Binder.' That book had in it a story about a little triste between Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher called 'I get no kick from Champagne.' After picking my jaw up on the floor, I was hooked. Now, I find myself putting together the 'zine that was started as stories between two friends."
