Reactions and Reviews
This is a K/S story in which the "S" stands for Sulu. Some people might be disappointed that in this sequel to "The Northern Star" Susan didn't reconcile the runaway slave Kirk with his Master, Spock, but frankly I'm relieved. The Spock of "The Northern Star" was totally unworthy of Kirk's love. I find it much more believable that Kirk would never go back to that Spock. I liked Kirk's relationship with Sulu, but it was the warrior Saavik who stole the show as far as I was concerned. Her strength, compassion and sensitivity gave her more stature than any other character depicted in this tale. I also loved the healing ritual that was done for Kirk to help him recover from Spock's abuse. This is the best story that Susan has written so far.
