Reactions and Reviews

What would be Spock's reaction if Kirk would ever be unfaithful to him? We certainly find out in this story. I liked the way Spock's character was portrayed. At first, he is just plain angry - afraid that his deep Vulcan instincts may cause him to punish Kirk for his infidelity. But after awhile, he realizes that he has no life without his human beside him. It was a little hard to believe that Kirk would allow himself to be seduced by another man, even with the help of the drugs, but their reactions - Kirk's apology, sorrow and repentance and Spock's outrage and finally forgiveness - were right on target.

I couldn‘t really warm to (Carnival‘s End) as for me both of them were a bit ooc and the entire jealousy-theme, which was the main topic here, is difficult for me. [2]
