The front cover of this issue (Christmas ish) is a beautiful full page ink drawing of Kirk by Cheryl Frashure. Beginning the articles within in a science essay on phasers by Jeff Johnston. Following this is short article reviewing Space:1999. There are two beautiful trek filk songs for Christmas adapted to 'Jingle Bells' and 'Oh, Tantumbaum' [sic]. These are don by K'Riss and Cheryl Rice. For those of you who have never read the original version of 'Arena' by Frederic Brown, Ann Popplestone discusses the differences between the two and gives a good insight on how the story was adapted. The outstanding piece of this issue is 'The Silent Stars Go By' by Cheryl Rice with some help from K'Riss. This is one of the better Christmas themes I've read in some time focussing on ST. It's told from Spock's point of view during the ship's annual Christmas party. For anyone looking for fist-fighting action, you'll have to go some place else, because this takes place as the Big E is silently traveling through peaceful space, thousands of light years from home, and the holidays on earth. The story was very touching to me, and after reading this story I was able to feel one of the few flushes of holiday spirit that I was able to muster up this year. Accompanying the rest of the features in this issue is a short trivia quiz and quite a number of illos that range from fair to very good in quality and filling out the rest of the pages is information for the club members who subscribe. This publication has a great deal of potential and should be expanded into a zine. Get a sample copy of this Christmas issue just to see what it is like. [1]
