The Territory of Rigel by Dorothy Jones

Posted by Tracy Poff on February 2, 2018

“The Territory of Rigel” is a song written by Dorothy Jones. She introduces it as “a piece supposed to have been written by Spock, many years ago.” She describes it as a “Vulcan form called ni var” which “means literally ‘two form’ . . . a piece comparing and contrasting two different things or two aspects of the same thing.” This term would get a nod 35 years later in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode “Shadows of P’Jem”, as the name of a Vulcan starship.

First line: “Dark and silent”

It’s an interesting exercise, but not to my taste as poetry.

Star Drek by Ruth Berman

Posted by Tracy Poff on February 2, 2018

A story by Ruth Berman which places Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and McCoy in the world of Spenser’s The Faerie Queene. It would be republished, the Trek references excised, as “Ptolemaic Hijack” in Worlds of Fantasy #4 in 1971.

To be perfectly frank, I think that ‘drek’ gets it about right.

Spock Shock by Sherna Comerford

Posted by Tracy Poff on February 2, 2018

A brief skit by Sherna Comerford, which was later performed at the 1969 Star Trek Con. An absurd bit of interaction between Captain Curt, Mr. Swock, and others on the bridge of the USS Undersize.
