About "A Lesson in Perspective":

  • "A classic story, suggested for reprinting by Leslie Fish. A post-Turnabout Intruder story which traces the effects of being in a woman's body on James T. Kirk. Born into a man's body, with that view-point in life, Kirk finds that being forced into a woman's body causes shock, physically and mentally. He also learns that sexuality is simply a matter of perspective." -- from the editors of Classified Assignments #1
  • "A Lesson in Perspective" is a story suggested to me by Leslie Fish as a classic well worth reprinting, when I read it, it blew my mind. It is a powerful story with strong imagery and as a study of the problems of male and female role play is unsurpassed." -- from the editors of Relay

About "Dust to Dust":

  • "The Federation insists on annual physicals, to Mela Duncan and Jason, this seems like a waste of time, but events on their distant planet prove the need for help from Starfleet as Kirk, Spock and McCoy search for Jason." -- from the editors of Classified Assignments #1
  • "Dust to Dust" is a favourite story of mine, the characterisation is superb, among the best in the fandom. A comment I heard about this story was that one of the strongest characters in the story never appears, which is very true, but the memory of that character remains long after you have read the story." -- from the editors of Relay
