edited by Randall Landers

ERIDANI is a Star Trek: The Next Generation fanzine which tries to capture the very essence of the new television series. There may be occasional violence, adult situations, nudity and rough language, but those instances are noted in the descriptions, and no age statement is required for this publication.

ERIDANI 5 features

"The Shadow of a Doubt" -- by Cyndi Bayless Overstreet. Data and Yar are brought together into a situation which is deeply trying for each of them. They are forced (with Riker as a cat's paw) into venturing into a degenerate colony city to retrieve a dangerous prize. During their ordeal, they discuss the "Naked Time" and what it truly meant for each other, with some surprising revelations from each of them.

"The Heart Has Its Reasons" -- by Chris Dickenson. A look at Doctor Beverly Crusher's departure from the Enterprise and Picard's reaction as well.

"Shadows in the Soul" -- by Cyndi Bayless Overstreet. Data examines his feelings for Yar as Geordi and he discuss her final message. Ironically, Geordi soon learns it is possible that Data actually has more feelings than some of the other Enterprise crew.

"Brand of Logic" -- by Chris Dickenson. An encounter between Data and Spock set as a follow-up to the story, "Mask of Pretense," which appeared in ERIDANI 4. Admiral Spock is aboard the Enterprise, recovering from the insectoid possession of his body, and thereby giving Data an opportunity to discuss the Human equation with one of the few people who had solved it.

"Of Vain Regret and Friendship Found" -- by Janna Stockinger. A stream-of-consciousness vignette, giving us insight into Captain Picard's reaction toward his new chief medical officer, Doctor Kathryn Pulaski.

"The Captain's Woman" -- by Linda Baker and Randall Landers. A very, very racy mirror universe story revealing how Beverly Crusher managed to return to the U.S.S. Enterprise. It's meant to be both amusing and erotic. -- Note: Adult situations.
