    Summary

    "It wasn’t logical. It wasn’t something that Spock could comprehend. His body felt like lead. His limbs were heavy. His eyes could barely stay open to the dimmed lights of his room. No matter how deeply he burrowed himself under the Starfleet-issued covers, he couldn’t shake the coldness dripping into his chest. The black nothingness of space was attempting to infiltrate his ribcage and no amount of logic could make it vanish."

    Set sometime during season 2 of TOS.

    Summary

    First Officer Spock of the USS Enterprise is part of the away team that discovers the survivors of Tarsus IV. Captain Pike assigns him to the curious case of James Tiberius Kirk, who steals one of Spock's sweaters. There were no sufficient Vulcan poetics to describe the emptiness of the colony as it was found on the morning of stardate 2249.43. The fully-completed residential sector was neither ugly nor beautiful but simply remote; a hollow landscape of metal alloys and sensible architecture, with determined vegetation growing alongside the support beams. They did not flower.

    Summary

    They meet Jim in phases, and through him find each other. Once the layers begin to peel back, though, the future bridge crew of the Enterprise finds more than they ever could have dreamed. When the fight to keep him starts in earnest, the cadets and officers of Starfleet begin to learn that not all wars can be won.

    Because long before he had friends, Jim had Family, and the Scaretta crime syndicate didn't survive to the 23rd century by letting go of its own.

    Jim Kirk will always be a frustration to Spock--even when that's not his name.
