Bronze picks up where Sanctuary left off. It takes place primarily on the Enterprise as Jeremy Gill travels to his new diplomatic assignment on Vulcan. Here, in a manner both poignant and humorous, he has his first face-to-face meeting with Sahaj's biological father. He hopes to establish a rapport with Spock but it seems others have conspired to keep them apart. First published in 1980 and reprinted in 1983 and 1984, this novella (approx. 24,000 words) has been updated, and scenes revised.
