A Fan Comments on These Storys' Roots

This is for newcomers who may have started out with K/S and have never read classic gen Star Trek. It is so easy to miss the roots of a story. An example of this can be found in Ms. Poste's mirror stories. Most of them were published in Nome. The early Nomes were not K/S. Her stories did not start out as true K/S. K/S developed as she continued to add stories to her mirror universe. In only one place does she mention that her stories are based on an earlier classic gen story of a second contact between TOS K&S and the mirror K&S; Brother's Keeper by D. T. Steiner. That note was with the very last story that I acquired for the series. Very early in my reading, I had added the same story to my stack of Nomes because it fit in so well with Ms. Poste's stories. I was pleased to find that it belonged there. [1]
