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.
