Summary:

NOW COMPLETE.

James Kirk is fearless. At least that's his reputation and it's been earned. But standing here, in this chamber of horrors, the captain fears three things - losing his crew, losing his command and losing his first officer. His friend.

Something is very wrong with the colony on Deneb III. 

In style of classic TOS with its roots in a classic TOS episode.

Story Notes:

Set towards the end of the five year mission. Because I'm attempting classic TOS in style, slashy overtones only.

My first story in many months because have been confronting a planet sized writer's block.

Look its TOS right? Its 2270 as seen from the perspective of 1969. Its not The West Wing. These are the inner conversations I had to have before wrestling this chapter into submission.

Apologies for the ridiculously long gap between updates. I have been many thousands of miles from my usual computer and bereft of regular internet access. Much of this was written on the move so hope it makes sense

11 months. How did that happen? I've never had a gap of 11 months between updates. Thank you for the nagging. It finally worked.

I was quite tempted to add 1960s style fade to blacks and commercial breaks. But didn't.
