The Territory of Rigel

A song written by Dorothy Jones. She introduces it as "a piece supposed to have been written by Spock, many years ago." She describes it as a "Vulcan form called ni var" which "means literally 'two form' . . . a piece comparing and contrasting two different things or two aspects of the same thing." This term would get a nod 35 years later in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode Shadows of P'Jem, as the name of a Vulcan starship.
