Reactions and Reviews
The next one I know you’ll love, since you are a sucker for sad stories. “The Aftermath” by Debbie Cummins takes place after Spock’s death but before the fal tor pan. McCoy tries to get Kirk to release his grief while they talk about Spock in an observation room on the Enterprise. There’s the neatest sentence in there about how Spock liked the color pink. I bet you’ll cry if you read this one.
