This is a particularly well-crafted and powerful sentence: " Jim, however, became depressed, his mercurial nature compressed into a narrow, destructive stream of negative thoughts and emotions."
Stories about an aging Kirk always fill me with sadness, even though the alternative is even worse. Tough to be confronted with one's heroes aging and slowing and becoming more vulnerable; just small things - like the possibility of being hurt while tripping and falling and the fear of that - are little everyday tragedies.
I love the idea of Spock getting ornery with a pain in the ass reporter! lol! I can see him being annoyed with the press in general, no matter how professional they may be - he's not a man who likes to have his privacy invaded.
So happy to close this year on such a lovely little story.
