oh, oh, oh, Captain!

CB Droege schreibt im Artikel "Oh Captain: James T. Kirk" auf TG Daily, dass in Fan Fiction mit der Figur von Kirk viel Interessanteres angestellt werde als in den offiziellen Episoden und Filmen:

"In the late 70s, there was a lot of Star Trek fan fiction flying around in the fanzines and small presses. This group of writers was poised at just the right moment in history - after the beat generation's free love movement, but before the homophobic AIDS scare - to generate the phenomenon of what we now call Slash Fiction, a genre of fan fiction which places two, usually heterosexual, characters from a popular fantasy property into a homosexual relationship. (...) These, mostly female, fan fiction writers, saw a homoerotic element in the relationship between these characters, a certain dynamic which they felt could only be explained by sexual tension".
