Reactions and Reviews

I adore Christine Myers' cover of Kirk splintering along timelines. Donna Frelick manages to actually make some sense of the Nexus idea -- which the movie-makers didn't. Spock, via his bond, knows Kirk is still alive somehow and, typically, plans to go rescue him without involving the others. The others, of course, all promptly involve themselves and band together to save their valiant captain. A nice romantic retirement for JTK with adventuresome Kate Logan, captain of Roxanne, and his final escape from Starfleet with her. The scenes in the Nexus were nicely done for all who ventured in, and there were fine descriptions of the phenomenon as the self splintering along timelines and the Nexus "echoes" discovering themselves to be such. The only dissonant bit for me was the end - Kirk is rescued, thanks the gang -- who risked everything to free him -- and after about a five-minute visit goes off to new adventures with his present lady-love, dropping them all from his life again. Then again... that *is* our Jimmy, I suppose. [1]
