- The novel was authoured by Gene Roddenberry - quite the ultimate authourity on Star Trek canon, wouldn't you think? Such an item as this, mentioned in the novel, would deserve its own article, IMO. Plus it is clearly stated that there is no further reference to this in the television series and movies. Ottens 13:18, 13 Mar 2005 (GMT)
- Also applying to Mind Control Revolts.
- I really think that is a matter of debate, as its' source is from the novel and not actually taken from the movie. Therefore, it should remain in the confines of the novels article, and at most, a footnote in any article where the topic has been covered over the past ~700 episodes -- which, to my knowledge, it has not. --Gvsualan 13:31, 13 Mar 2005 (GMT)
Kirk in love w/ Spock?Edit
Its been a while since I read this novel, but wasn't there a preface or something written from Kirk's perspective that implied he was homosexually attracted to Spock in some way? Federation 08:08, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
No. I just read the preface and there is no mention or implying of Kirk being in love with Spock.
Outside TOS? Edit Is it true (as mentioned here) that the book takes place in a world where the original series is just a dramatization of Kirk's actual voyages? Can anyone post the specific text establishing it? --Andrew Nagy 03:04, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
- I suggest you read the article to see who wrote the book. If you have evidence that it wasn't that person, feel free to post it here. 31dot (talk) 01:34, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
I could have sworn that i read ages ago on wikipedia that ADF ghost wrote this and Gene put his own name on it. I thought everybody knew that 13:47, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
- That's been a rumour floating around for some time. Never confirmed. In fact, some noted Star Trek authors have insisted that ADF had nothing to do with it, and the prose in the novel is highly indicative of GR's style of writing and of a first time novelist. -- sulfur (talk) 14:30, July 4, 2012 (UTC)
