Excerpt from "A Kind of Dream":
As the three approached, the crowd parted for them to enter the place. A tall, grave, bearded man was seated in the straw beside an attractive, dark haired young woman. Beside her, wrapped in a blue shawl, was a small baby. The young woman looked up as Kirk approached and smiled at him. Kirk knelt on one knee and looked intently at the child. Behind him. Bones also had fallen to his knees and even Spock seemed to be aware of the atmosphere of something beyond the comprehension of all of them. Kirk smiled at the man and woman and reached out to touch the child's hand. The tiny fingers curled around his finger, he and Bones bowed their heads while Spock, unexpectedly, drew himself to his full height and executed an elaborate Vulcan salute. No-one moved for a long moment, then Kirk took from his bag he had with him, three objects wrapped in rich fabric and placed them on the straw in front of the child. He and Bones got to their feet and wordlessly the three left the stable and made their way out of the town.The only words spoken were the order to beam up and the golden shimmer of transporting was observed by an open-mouthed shepherd boy who raced away to tell of the golden angels he had seen.
