Is this the zine with the novel by Cheree Cargill that is also linked from her page? With Spock/Chapel stranded by Romulans on a planet, forced to live as hunter/gatherers? That one is online, here http://www.trektales.com/CargillCastaways.html , but that may be a revised edition because it is rated over 18 and having read about half of the twelve installments I can attest that they truly have sex a lot (rather Clan of the Cavebear like, that seems to have been a very popular spock/chapel setting for some reason). It's also still available in another zine edition from Falcon Press, but the cover on the website looks different from this cover.--Ratcreature 02:06, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm thinking no, but I'm in *no way* married to that opinion. Star Trek is a fandom I know nothing about. Discuss amongst yourselves.... :-) Mrs. Potato Head 02:26, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

So I've looked at the Star Trek Zinedex page for this: http://klhalliday.com/Zinedex/ContentsC.htm#Castaways

and that is also a bit confused in that the Cargill cover is put next to the other, but it also gives a summay of this one that says: From review in Delta Triad 4: "Spock romance with opera singer Fiamma Coretti, with whom he is stranded... they combat elements, illness, accidents, Klingons... while awaiting rescue... they fall in love but go their own ways ... good story with reasonable skulduggery by the dirty Klingons going on as counterpoint to their efforts at survival, with glimpses of the... Kirk / Uhura relationship that DT promotes, and the derring-do of everyday life on a Federation starship." And okay, yet another stranded story (it happens a lot to poor Spock), but the plot is definitely different, because the novel I read is Spock/Chapel and no Kirk or Uhura. So I think I'll create a stub for The Castaways - Cheree Cargill so that the link on her page can go to the right novel rather than the wrong zine.--Ratcreature 02:52, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
