    Summary

    For Vulcans, courting can be as logical as a game of chess.

    What a wonderful idea for a story! I love it that there are Vulcan conventions about what various chess moves mean and that Spock has been communicating with Kirk using them.

    Spock takes metaphors literally while trying to court Kirk, with funny results.

    I usually find "funny" Star Trek stories to just be kinda stupid, but I actually enjoyed this one.

    An interesting K/S aftermath to "Amok Time" that keeps the guys in character, which is all too rare in the rush to bond them. :-)

    Summary

    The final will and testament of Ambassador Spock, Son of Sarek, of the House of Surak, section 15.6.8, personal message to James Tiberius Kirk, at the time of writing Captain of the Starship Enterprise.

    "I urge you, if you and Spock have found what I had hoped you will, a friendship to rival that of my Captain and I... Do not let it languish as we did. Acknowledge it for what it is and take the steps we never made."

    Lovely story of how a message from Spock Prime pushes Kirk to acknowledge Spock's importance to him.

    Summary

    After 'The Menagerie', Christine Chapel comes to Spock's quarters. It's time for them both to explain their relationships with Number One. Perhaps a different take on the reason Number One and Christine Chapel are so similar.

    Possibly implied past Number One/Spock. Chapel & Spock gen or pre-Spock/Chapel - up to you!

    A nice explanation of why Christine Chapel looks exactly like Number One.
