Personally, I like the idea of social "tension" - the kind between Riker and Troi or T'something and Archer (if I recall that right). But I'm a fan of regulations so the bridge crew would *not* have personal relationships.

I'm not saying you shouldn't explore that further. And your writing doesn't have to be "porn". They could be sitting having a meal when the conversation turns a little flirty (if Vulcans do that), then they "retire" after the meal. Or maybe they wake up after a passionate evening (if Vulcans have that) and get to work.

So, the fiction can be overtly suggestive without being graphic - if you would want their professional relationship to become personal. Otherwise, the tension alone can make great interactions I think.

Good luck!

OH - have you considered joining the Literary Challenges? I'd be interested to see your take on the topic
