It was published in the print zine Dagger of the Mind.

It is a sort-of part of her Crossroad Series. ""Gift of the Masters of Time" is not a 'series' story per se. However, Juanita's Spock and Christine series, Crossroads, offers further insight into the Vulcan's character and interactions in a very real world. [1]

Reactions and Reviews

Long after the deaths of Kirk and McCoy, a disabled Captain Spock is contemplating his future when some genies... oh, er, Time Masters... offer to reward his basic wonderfulness by granting him one change in time. He chooses to rescue Zarabeth. An interesting dilemma and resolution. [2]
"Gift of the Masters of Time", by Juanita Salicrup -- Before the story starts, Spock returns the focusing crystal to the Masters of Time in an adventure that costs Kirk's life and permanently disables Spock. The Masters come to Spock and offer him a reward -- to change one incident in the past. The ethical and logistical implications of the choice constitute the story. [3]
