"In The Jungle" by Mary Kay -- On a mission to raid and destroy a Romulan
base, Kirk and Spock meet up with a local mercenary, someone Kirk once knew.
Someone who'd like to know Kirk again. As a result, Spock has a run-in with
the unpleasant, most unVulan emotion of jealousy.
"Turbo Talk" by Khiori -- When a turbolift malfunctions, conversation
between the trapped captain and a young ensign seems to reveal more than is
actually being said.
"We All Need Someone" by Mary Kay - Ill-tempered and angry, Kirk has been
acting more like a wounded bear than a Starfleet captain. It takes a good -
brave - friend to get to the bottom of where the problem lies.
"The Flare-Up" by Jean Marie Sosa -- Lovingly bonded, Kirk and Spock face
difficult storms, both professionally and, on occasion, personally. One
time in particular.
"The Human Factor" by Deborah Cummins -- Following the fal-tor-pan, Spock
finds himself in great upheaval. Everything is alien and unknown, seemingly
unknowable. Questions plague him: who is he as a Vulcan, what does it even
mean to be Vulcan? Who are these people, these humans who call him friend?
But the most difficult task of all is learning how to once again be Spock.
"A Matter of Trust" by Mary Kay -- Kirk and Spock are just beginning a more
intimate relationship when an assignment takes them to a planet run by
women, testing Spock's ability to trust his new partner when Kirk's previous
reputation becomes an issue.
"Two Words" by Catalena Mara -- Based on Barbara Hambly's pro Trek novel,
"Ishmael," this story tells of what happens once Spock is returned to his
timeline from 1870s Seattle, Washington. How has his time in Earth's past
with Aaron Stemple and the rest of the characters from "Here Come The
Brides" changed him? What has he learned? What has he gained?

sends John in search of her missing little brother, Rodney, who, along with

and snide if he does? Yeah, sure, you betcha!

threatening to systematically take down the United States' computer
infrastructure over the July 4th holiday. Detective John Sheppard and
genius computer hacker Rodney McKay must get past their obvious distrust of

succeed or will life as we know it come to a grinding halt?
