Ladies of Kirk: #19, Odona by kelleybean86
Ladies of Kirk: #19, Odona
Ladies of Kirk: #19, Odona.

Odona is the princess of a planet which long ago conquered disease and death, and now finds itself disastrously overpopulated. Odona's father concocts a plan to trap Kirk - a carrier of a rare virus - on their planet alone with Odona, and infect her with the virus unknowingly. Odona will heroically sacrifice herself and re-introduce death and sickness to her people, restoring natural population levels. But once Kirk finds out about this plan, he refuses to go along with it and allow Odona to die.

This was a tricky synopsis to write, because this episode doesn't really make any sense. But if you like this, check out
 the Ladies of Kirk book!)

Ladies of Kirk: #17, Rayna Kapec by kelleybean86
Ladies of Kirk: #17, Rayna Kapec
Rayna lives on a planet alone with her caretaker, Flint. With little to do besides study, the extraordinarily bright Rayna has an intelligence that impresses even Spock. Kirk is quickly smitten with the graceful Rayna, and tries to encourage her to leave her sheltered, lonely existence on the planet. Flint is not happy with this, and the two men soon get in a fight over who knows best for Rayna. But Rayna refuses to be ordered by either of them.

Ladies of Kirk: #19, Marta by kelleybean86
Ladies of Kirk: #19, Marta
The inmates are literally running the asylum on planet Elba II. An inmate named Garth has declared himself king of the asylum, and Marta is his childish, mentally unstable court jester. When they take Captain Kirk hostage, Marta finds herself torn between her attraction to Garth and Kirk. She dances for Kirk to try and make Garth jealous. In the end, Marta has to choose between the Captain and the King.

The actress who played Marta, Yvonne Craig, passed away yesterday at the age of 78.

Ladies of Kirk: #16 Elaan of Troyius
Elaan, the Dohlman of the Elasian Empire, comes from an agressive culture. Against her will, she been betrothed to the ruler of the Troyian Empire, and the Enterprise has the dubious honor of transporting her to her new home planet. Elaan tries to stop the wedding with threats and tantrums, but when Kirk resists her bullying, she tries a new tactic. Using a special Elasian technique, Elaan causes Kirk to fall in love with her, hoping that he will use his influence to stop the wedding. But Elaan soon finds out that she is the one falling under Kirk’s spell.

Ladies of Kirk is SO brilliant and cute, I can't get over it!

Is there a reason why you're not trying to go the professional route with it and get it published by a licensed Star Trek publisher? This really deserves to be something official people can buy in a bookstore.

Thank you very much!
I honestly didn't think there would be so much interest in Ladies of Kirk. I was also just excited about it and wanted to get it out there. Going the publishing route could take years.

I totally get that! And it's really awesome to see how much the fandom is responding to it. I'm sure you were shocked in the best way 😊

I guess I'm just nervous for you as, at the end of the day, it's blatant copyright infringement to be self-publishing and profiting off of Star Trek. A couple art prints here and there, that's par for the course, but an actual book? 😰

I truly don't mean to insult you or anything and sincerely apologize if I have...again, just concerned for you and wishing you the best because you're awesome. As a fan, as much as I LOVE and frequently purchase fanmade art and creations, I also believe in respecting licenses and giving them their fair due. Publishing legally may take years, but it's what is right, and always well worth the wait and respect it brings.

Wishing you the best of luck and success ❤️❤️❤️

Thanks for your thoughts. I understand your concerns about copyright. I think that there's an argument to be made that my work qualifies for fair use either as transformative or as parody. But even if not, if CBS is concerned about the project they can talk to me. If I want to do a followup book I'll look into getting it officially licensed/published.
