From IDIC #1: "Kirk, Spock, and McCoy try to bring their lives into perspective after the trauma at Mount Seleya; a personal letter written by Kirk to his mother; Admiral Morrow -- a personal log; alternative ending to Star Trek II."
From Datazine #43: "A post-Search for Spock offering with three short stories and one long one. The major entry, 'Operation Phoenix' is a plausible answer to the loss of the Enterprise. Recommended for anyone who cries every time she blows up."

Reactions and Reviews
This is a collection of stories set post-TSFS, by authors Shirley Buck, Steve Tidey, Kay Stagg and Jon Croot. They are all pleasant reading, introspective and with good characterisation. In Retrospect by Kay Stagg is an extract from Admiral Morrow's personal log in which he, surprisingly, expresses, with hindsight, great admiration for Kirk. Operation Phoenix by Jon Croot, is an alternative and imaginative sequel to the events at TVOK, set after the refusion on Vulcan.
