[art by Suzan Lovett]: I bought this illo at the Shore Leave K/S party this year, and I‘m truly surprised it didn‘t set my suitcase on fire when I brought it home. Originally published as a foldout, this illustration truly proves the old adage that one picture is worth a thousand words. It‘s arranged as a series of five scenes that tell the story of Kirk and Spock‘s first sexual encounter. In the first scene, Kirk looks determined. He‘s confronted Spock with his desires and forces a very wary Spock to confront them as well. Next Kirk has discarded his clothing, and while Spock is still wearing his uniform, he can no longer prevent himself from responding, if only by looking at what Kirk is offering him. Scene three: Spock has disrobed, shed his clothing along with his inhibitions. Kirk tells him with an oh-so-gentle touch to his face that the Vulcan‘s heart will be treated as gently. Then in the following scene the two men make love. Spock appears to be totally undone by what he is experiencing. Finally after sex lassitude takes over, and with Spock‘s head tucked lovingly into Kirk‘s shoulder, the two men drift off to sleep and the true beginning of their life together.

There is so much emotion contained in this picture that it scarcely can be contained between the framing black background. Indeed, the background itself joins the story finally forming the blanket that cocoons the two men as they sleep.

This is a really exceptional piece of work, and I feel fortunate that I can look above my computer and see it every day. [1]
