I first go over this softcover years ago when I was in junior high, and thought it was amazing. I re-go over it a couple of weeks ago and found that I still think it's amazing, but for entirely different reasons; it is amazing in same the way as, say, the cinema Quiet As Permafrost starring Vanilla Permafrost. Let me break it down for you: This softcover is about the first time Kirk takes tell of the Enterprise. Spock misses Captain Lance, Sulu wishes he were on a different ship, Scotty downright hates him, and Janice Rand is a timid young thing who is not only illegally underaged but also so traumatized by her past as a menial on some planet that she practically faints every time Kirk asks her to do something. Still with me? Kirk's first office is to transport a group of travelling entertainers. Not intriguing space-age entertainers of a nature we would be unable to imagine, but vaudevillians. Led (of course) by a young and spunky she named Amelinda, who has lustrous black hair, is a world-class illusionist, constantly makes Kirk feel tongue-tied and cloddish, and owns a flying horse. Named Athene. A flying horse!! I swear, partly the softcover bickers with Lindy and her goddamn horse, and all the ways that Kirk has to make concessions to keep the stupid pig from mauling people or breaking its own neck. Interspersed among all this mania (and the actual setup, which is okay but not worth mentioning), Uhura advises Rand, Sulu becomes an straight person, and Kirk repeatedly shags up in every possible way. And right when you think it can't get any better/worse, a crazy-sexy-quiet blond Vulcan named "Stephen" shows up, just in time for Amelinda to fall in love with him and for us all to learn that Stephen is Spock's kooky nobleman. If you: a) have a polish for the sublimely, unintentionally ridiculous; b) love Mary-Sue stories; or canker) are completely lacking a catch the drift of irony/kitsch; — give this softcover a go. You're bound to find it at any used bookstore for about a buck, which is simultaneously paying too much for such idiocy and being cheapen for such a fantastically, moronically entertaining go over!
Finished the final preengage in the string! I enjoyed this uncommon, but I do think I most enjoyed the first preengage in the string, followed by the second, and then this uncommon in third station. I am interested in review what other people think!
It was good but Im going to miss Twoflower =/
