  • Survival and Promises -- After crashing in the midst of a blizzard, Spock and Christine must seek shelter or be frozen to death. He manages to rescue only one survival bag from the burning shuttle ... then realizes that it's going to take their combined body heat in order to make it through the night.
  • Sanity -- It is still many days until Vulcan and Spock is deep into the pon farr. Christine has an idea what he needs, but it may be more than she's willing to give.
  • Trust -- Spock, Christine, Chekov and Technician Ellen Mead are captured by the Gorn and taken to an abominable prison camp where they discover the survivors of Cestus III and a number of other races who are also captives. There they learn the horrible truth of their situation -- the Gorn worlds are running low on food stocks and they are searching for a new supply.
  • Desert Heat -- The sequel to "Trust". Spock has returned the katra of a Vulcan woman to her family and now he must go into the desert to undergo a ritual to recenter himself. He asks Christine to go with him. There they learn that it can get very, very hot in the desert...
  • R & R -- The Enterprise has put into Earth Space Dock for a week's worth of maintenance, during which everyone must leave the ship. The result is R&R and the crew happily disembarks. While Captain Kirk goes on vacation elsewhere, Spock has secured the use of the Captain's mountain cabin and he asks Christine to accompany him. He's been doing some heavy evaluation of his life since the incident on Platonius and now he's ready to ask Christine a very important question.
  • The Captain's Woman -- Set in the "Mirror, Mirror" universe. Spock has assassinated Kirk and assumed command of the I.S.S. Enterprise. There he begins an iron-fisted rule of the ship and its crew. For Christine, it means the attainment of a dream -- she's now the Captain's Woman. But Marlena Moreau is determined to have that position back ... no matter who she has to kill to get it.
