IDYLLS 10 features
"Stranded" -- by Amanda Cassity. This story features that popular concept of just one more simple mission to a friendly planet that inevitably goes wrong. This time, a badly injured Jim Kirk is stranded with his communications officer and must rely on the very capable--and very beautiful--Lieutenant Uhura to keep him alive until help arrives.
"Add Not Your Tears to Those Whose Dreams Have Died" -- by Holly Trueblood. The lady Amanda returns to Earth for her first visit in the twenty-five years since her marriage to Sarek. While there, she reflects on her role as wife and mother to two very stubborn Vulcan men.
"Winged Demons" -- by Jill Thomasson. A continuation of the relationship of Leonard McCoy and Jennifer Malone which began with "Crossed Signals" in Idylls 8. But this time, things aren't so idyllic when, on an alien planet, the Enterprise landing party encounters a race of gargoyles, who alternate between being not friendly enough and far too friendly.
"The Questors" -- by Pony Godic. A novella which explores the Spock-Chapel relationship. At first it was a courtesy visit, an exchange of respect, social pleasantries and scientific information. But when Christine Chapel learned that Spock was temporarily remaining behind on the Vulcan vessel--and why--she insisted on staying, too. If he was going to risk his life, the least she could do was to risk her career.
