"While ferrying a group of Vulcan scientists to their new project, Kirk begins having erotic dreams in which he is sexually dominated by his first officer."
"In other words," Kirk said, slowly beginning to understand, "having forty-two Vulcan passengers on board is like having a telecomm blasting in your ear all the time.""Not precisely," Spock murmured. "If it were like a telecomm, it would be as if there were forty-two telecomms, each attuned to a different frequency and each transmitting at varying intervals. As a result, I have discovered that my own ability to shield against the intrusion has been severely curtailed. As a result of my inadequacy, apparently you are experiencing these… dreams."
Reactions and Reviews
This is a gripping story. It's about a fifty page story with two nice Virginia Lee Smith erotic pictures. The basic plot is that Kirk has three dreams. Each is different and very sexual. This forces him to do some serious thinking. The dreams are very nicely detailed and fit in very well with the rest of the story. These 50ish pages pass very quickly. Not a dull monument on any page.... 
The Enterprise is ferrying a large delegation of Vulcans and Kirk has vivid (as in: vivid!) dreams about himself and Spock as different characters engaging in extremely erotic liaisons. These dreams compel Kirk to confront Spock and the realization of their love and lust. Ms. Black is an author who can write the most amazingly erotic, steamy, hot, sexy, passionate, (any other adjective to describe it!) scenes that I've read. The last part of the story, that of Kirk and Spock realizing their desire for each other, was good, but takes a backseat to those dreams! Boy! 
This is a vivid, exciting story of Kirk's imposed dream experiences while traveling on the Enterprise with a contingent of Vulcans.
The dreams are so drop-dead sexy, truly defining the term PDS, it's unbelievable! Do not, and I mean do not attempt to read this in public or in the presence of children or around any unsuspecting men.
I can't help myself, I've got to give an example: "He heard his own voice beg for more, heard himself pleading for Spock to suck him, fuck him, take him, break him." and "Kirk writhed in pleasant torment, hips thrusting turbulently upward until every millimeter of his cock was welcomed into the fire god's hungering mouth and held there by lips powerful enough to hold him still. The wicked tongue danced, circled him as a shark circles its prey, teased him, devoured him." Oh boy! My kind of material!Definitely not a story for the easily embarrassed new reader. This is a real "seat-of-your-pants" (sorry) story filled with such energy and vitality. Consider this: "He wanted to live like this and do nothing else. He wanted to die like this and be re-born doing it all over again. He wanted immortality with Spock—with Spock riding him like this, pounding his mind and body with the utter perfection of sexual joining. And the love...always the love." (Hands clasped to the side of my face: Ohhh, my gaawwddd!) 
This is one of those stories that stay in one's mind forever. Now, forever may be a long time, but I know I'll never forget this one. It's got that subtle combination of explicit, erotic, romantic sex with a"greater leaning". That is to say, that the story can be taken on many different levels with enjoyment not only for the plot, but for the underlying message, as well. It concerns itself with Kirk, before he graduates from the Academy, and, of course, before he ever takes command of the Enterprise, He experiences an encounter with Spock; an experience that takes a profound difference in his life. That's all I can say without revealing too much or giving anything away. But, the beginning sequence is unlike any other I have ever read. Kirk touches himself along with the gathering storm, as he becomes part of nature, and it's GREAT! What other word can I use? FABULOUS! SUPERIOR! Get the point? It's writing like this that exemplifies Ms. Black's professional writer status. It's so beautifully done, so powerfully portrayed that to find only one line to show as an example is impossible. I went through the story and there were so many lines, paragraphs and entire pages that I would chose, that you'll just have to read it! Highly recommended, especially in this reprint zine filled with other excellent stories written by one of fandom's best writers. 
Though it is very well written, I’m still left with a feeling of dissatisfaction. There is nothing new to her basic scene and it’s one I’ve encountered many times. I have nothing against reading the same thing if it is being touched from a different direction or if it shows some kind of growth. But that doesn’t happen here.
