It was published in the print zine Obsc'zine #4.
Christine Chapel and Janice Rand use their supposed infatuations with, respectively, Spock and Kirk, as cover for their relationship. The story mirrored a similar plot twist used in Kismet, a femmeslash story published in Obsc'zine #2.
Reactions and Reviews
'Cross Currents': disappointing, though whether this is in spite of, or because, it is written by Marion Zimmer Bradley, a highly-talented author, Tigriffin cannot say. Some may feel it is nice for a sf pro to take the time to write a story for a fanzine at all, those people will probably enjoy the story anyway, in spite of characterizations that miss their target, a familiar plot idea (K/S aren't the only gay couple on the Big E), and simpering, sterotyped dialogue.
