Unidentified higher powers are making bets and playing games with Kirk, putting him through various hoops to see how far he'll go for Spock.
Reactions and Reviews
Someone—gods? Super-beings?—is discussing what Kirk would do “if Spock would love me”. So, in a wonderfully clever idea, they decide to test him.
Very funny beginning as some female ambassador is lusting after Kirk and then he smiles and: “the wattage dimmed, however, and then faded out completely when he switched back to manual helm and the big head started doing the thinking.” So funny! And he has what’s described as a “multi-organal debate” between his heart and his cock! Wonderfully fast scene where Kirk thinks Spock is in trouble and is about to beam down to save him when Spock beams back to the ship. Spock asks him about this later and says: “Actually, it was Mr. Scott who...spilled the legumes.” So these super-beings continue to discuss Kirk’s behavior with Spock and it’s so cute: “Now it’s Spock, Spock, Spock.” Then the Klingons are about to use the mind-sifter on Kirk and the super-beings save him. “He’s already chucked sex, career, and now his life out an airlock. What more has he got?” Then K & S kiss and have passionate sex and a very clever ending when the beings think they’ll try to break them up, but can’t.Neat story.
