    Summary

    We are driven by forces we cannot control to return home and take a wife. Or die. — Spock (“Amok Time”)

    Every seven years, all Vulcans are compelled to return to their native planet to engage in the ancient ritual of pon farr or die trying. Among fans, it is hotly contested whether Vulcans actually only mate once every seven years. However, from a biological perspective, it’s far more remarkable that a mating system where anyone who fails to mate dies could ever evolve, but perhaps it is not impossible given the unique constraints of Vulcan society.

    An evolutionary perspective on the Vulcan mating system.

    Summary

    It was a perfectly enjoyable vacation – until she was captured by a group of alien slavetraders. But the real trouble started when the slavers were stopped by the galactic authorities, and Jenny Marlowe’s cell door slid open to reveal three members of the Imperial Starfleet. Including a woman with slanted eyebrows and pointed ears who looked amazingly like a Vulcan.

    Oh, of course, Jenny thought. I’ve gone crazy. What a relief.

    Unfortunately, she hadn’t. And when Commander Slair, Vulcan Third Officer of the ISS VICTORY, made her an offer she couldn’t refuse, she discovered that living in STAR TREK wasn’t exactly what she’d thought it would be . . . not when the episode was “Mirror, Mirror”.

    So Jenny found herself trying to play “officer’s lady” in a crazy, mixed-up version of the “Mirror” empire. Commander Slair was not quite what she’d had in mind when she’d thought of Vulcans. And it turned out that she wasn’t precisely what he’d expected, either . . . .

    A “Mirror, Mirror” story – sort of.
