    Summary

    When Spock comes to Kirk to “petition for the dissolution of their friendship”, Kirk realizes that he really has no idea what this relationship would mean in Spock’s alien culture. A story about friendship and culture clashes, and the fact that “t’hyla” and “measured, proportionate reactions” don’t seem to go well together.

    (As evidence for that, let me just say: The Search For Spock. :) )

    Thoughtful and complex, both as character studies and as a look at cultural differences and how to intelligently navigate them.

    Summary

    It is January 3, 2267, and Spock ch’Sarek is more than ready for the human holiday season to be over. Overall, it has been confusing, loud and has involved far too much tactile contact with various people.

    But his friends have decided that there is one more holiday, a Vulcan Joining, that needs to be celebrated before the Enterprise returns to regular duty…

    This fic is for all expats out there, who have had to celebrate important occasions far from home. And for all of us who need a break from the hustle and bustle of late December, and who remember that the underlying theme for all celebrations, religious and secular, are affection, fellowship and reflection.

    Summary

    Kirk, Spock and Chekov are caught in a difficult ethical situation. Ethics, friendship, poor pre-First Contact society.

    "We stood by and saw your ancestors die, because they were too primitive? We stole whatever we thought profitable of your ideas and your arts, and gave them to our well-fed friends while their inventors starved?"

    Short, but powerful, discussion of the ethics of first contact. Very good.
