Reactions and Reviews

It's been a while since I've seen this author's work. 
I thought perhaps she'd quit writing and I'm very glad
 I was wrong. For the second time in this zine we get
 a glimpse of something we don't often see — the lower-
ranking members of the crew, and in this instance, the 
things they do in their off duty time. The Enterprise is 
in for repairs and the plot thickens when four horny 
young ensigns, all cabin-mates and all flat broke, cook 
up an unusual scheme to earn the money for one big night on the town. Matters get complicated when the
 quartet finds out that their Captain and First Officer are
 taking their leave aboard ship this time and have special 
plans of their own. Jarringly out of character were some ideas that Spock had for using the leave time, not to mention Kirk's willingness to go along with those ideas. However, if you're willing to suspend your belief for a short time the tale becomes not only enjoyable but downright comical. [1]
Take four eager, inventive young ensigns without any money and put the Enterprise in orbit round Hillthania with its expensive shore leave facilities. Add to that mix the fact that Captain Kirk and First Officer Spock are looking forward to indulging their very own personal fantasies without leaving the ship and what do you get? Well in this case a well-thought out and amusing story which manages to turn what could have been routine shore leave into a rout. And do Kirk and Spock get to fulfill their fantasy? Read it and see!
