The Curtained Sleep
written by Ann Zewen

"The Curtained Sleep" is a sequel to "Turnabout Intruder," one of two on our website. Given that the source episode is not among the most popular (often being named as one of the worse), it is surprising to me that two different people would be drawn to the episode enough to write lengthy well-written sequels to it.

Winter Hunt

James T. Kirk is kidnapped by thugs who want to hold him ransom. Fortunately, they forget the reputation of the man they’ve captured and of his friends who will go to great lengths to rescue him.

The Enterprise is dispatched to ferry ambassadors from a starbase while Kirk, Spock and McCoy are proceeding to the planet’s surface via shuttlecraft. The Galileo comes under attack, and it makes a forced landing on a neighboring planet. Meanwhile, their attackers are searching for them and waiting for the unsuspecting Enterprise to return.

The Once and Future Kirk
written by Nomad

"The Once and Future Kirk" may be a bit confusing at first, but bear with it. When the story was reviewed in Datazine and Universal Translator, both reviewers found it to be quite good, and you will too, if you give it a chance. I can’t say much more about it unless I give away the ending, so you’ll have to do without a synopsis of this story.

First Class
written by Caroline R. Kummer

Captain Kirk and Mister Spock encounter a pair of cadets who are all too familiar to them both.

The Price of Peace
written by Randall Landers

Federation colonists on a distant world find themselves with Romulan saboteurs, and it’s up to the crew of the Enterprise to solve the mystery.
