Reactions and Reviews

1984

Sherry Bristol penned “If You’ve Got It”, where she deftly explores what might happen if Kirk ingested some of Harry Mudd’s Venus drug. You have to admit it’s a promising premise. In a strange twist, Spock administers it to help Kirk match his strength for their bouts in the gym. Spock has conveniently missed the point of exactly what is enhanced by the drug. Whew! This is just a fun story, but a very sexy one. [1]
...a novelty in as much as the machinations of the plot (although they of course were) were not too obviously directed at getting Kirk into bed with Spock. Spock is giving Kirk the Venus drug, which is said to give a person 'More of what they've got', following a stupid order from Kirk that the Vulcan should not hold back in their next unarmed combat session. Give Kirk more of what he's got? Is Spock mad? As you can imagine, more of what Kirk's got produces quite a response in Spock - Kirk too. However the drug wears off and they wake in flagrante delicto. Spock confesses and Kirk says ...wait for it... "You? An aphrodisiac?' Why Spock?" Should they really let people that dim captain starships? [2]
