To Boldly Go
Born from deep space passions left unspoken, “K/S” or “Spirk” stories and art emerged in 1974 from often-pseudonymous members of the Star Trek fandom. They compiled and mailed their creations far and wide in typewritten, photocopied publications long before there was an internet for slash fiction to blossom within. This collection represented one of the largest accumulations of original Kirk/Spock drawings ever publicly exhibited. Public Media Institute was honored to host this body of truly unique and historically vital paintings and drawings saved from an auction house by Jenson Hillenbrand.
