From the editorial:
I do hope you are going to enjoy Classified Assignments 2 (or Class Ass as a friend calls it!). A lot of hard work and love of ST has gone into these stories and I would like to thank all the authors and artists for their imagination, hard work, rewrites and patience....

There is a rumour going around that I am giving up fandom and my zines, as with most rumours this is totally untrue (I suppose some strange folks just get their kicks making things up) and I hope to have another Computer Playback and Relay out later in the year. "I say hope because deadlines have to be flexible and I won't spoil the ship for a pennyworth of tar.

I already have material for CA3, I don't know when it will be ready, the stories I have are super and if you would like to send a s.a.e., I will send you a flyer when the zine is published.
