Reactions and Reviews
LESS IS MORE is a delightful piece of froth about Kirk's need to lose weight and Spock's unusual solution. The author's (irreverent) tongue-in-cheek approach to an unpleasant (for Kirk at least) state of affairs is refreshing. As with Ms. Starr's other efforts, this vignette is tightly written and well polished. 
Jenny Starr's "Less is More' is a vignette of pure dialogue where Spock tries to discuss a new diet for Kirk, as the captain is still fighting a persistent weight problem. I usually enjoy this author's stories, but this piece was rather dry and needed a better punch line.
