Star Trek: ExtinctionSet post-Star Trek XI. Spock begins acting increasingly aggressive, and soon the crew begin to fear for their own safety from the Vulcan. When the Vulcan High Council steps in Kirk fears there is more going on than any Vulcan, even Spock, will admit to.
NOTE from the PHOENIX: Well here we go...the beginning of my first full length Star Trek story. This is set post Star Trek XI by a few years so that the trio has had a little time to get their relationships closer to how they were in TOS. Enjoy!
Star Trek: Extinction
...and so we surrender his body to rejoin the others.
Spock had paid little attention to the formal ceremony. He stood by the large glass floor to ceiling window staring out into space. Just within view was the immense artificial black hole that had taken his world, visible only from the light distortion it caused commonly known as an Einstein ring. The powerful gravitational field cau

Star Trek: Treason
Only half awake Kirk listened to the monotonous tone of the monitor beeping out the rhythm of his heart beat. Time spent in medical was never entirely enjoyable, but he didnt mind a chance to get a little down time. The past few months since reducing the Vulcan sun to a white dwarf had been stressful. It seemed like the Enterprise was needed at about six different places in the galaxy at once.
All their missions had been small ones, a diplomatic mission here, a rescue mission there, a check up on a research station elsewhere. It was the fact that these missions were non stop that was wearing on the crew. It was pushing six months since they had taken shore leave. It had been just as long since theyd been anywhere near the more populated areas of space.

Yes, Captain. Spock nodded. His thoughts are chaotic, unreadable, and above all highly emotional.
Is this sort of mental breakdown common among Vulcans? Bones asked.
It is completely unheard of. Since I can not understand his thoughts it is impossible to tell what drove him to this extreme.
What are all the possible causes?
The main suspects would be: disease, radiation poisoning, or some form of extreme torture.
Torture? Bones asked in alarm.
By the time you have gone far enough to break a Vulcan they are truly broken and no use to any one. Spock replied calmly. It is not a logical use of time, but perhaps someone who h

Kirk sat back in his seat and stared up at the ceiling in his quarters. Weighing his options didn't seem to help. Eventually he simply got up and wandered off into the hallway. Making his way through the ship he quickly came to his First Officer's quarters. Kirk swiped his hand across the plate that would announce that he was standing outside.
Come. Spock replied from inside.
Kirk stepped into the room and glanced around at the odd mixture of Vulcan and African décor. Spock was sitting at his desk with the fingertips of each hand gently touching one another, a sure sign that he had been deep in thought when Kirk had disturbed him. Walking over to the desk Kirk sat on it casually, forgetting how much it irritated Spock to have his furniture used in a manner other than it was intended.
So...how did things go on Natala?
As well as could be e

Now then, don't you dare go down there, and hook up with some pretty young thing with pointed ears.
Hook up? Spock repeated confused.
Never mind. Uhura chuckled. Just come back as soon as you can.
This should not take long.
Good. Uhura pushed herself up on her tip-toes and kissed Spock's cheek. I know it's silly, but I'm always nervous when you're on Natala.
Vulcans do not harm one another, even when we had lives to 'spare'.
I know, still...be careful.
Uhura smiled, knowing that Spock was being completely serious where others would have been sarcastic. His eyes tracked back and forth the way they always did before he displayed any kind of affection towards her. Even within the safety of their quarters he had to ensure that no one was watching.

Spock had no interest in shore leave on Starbase 17, or any other place for that matter. Retuning to the ship he checked in with the bridge to make sure that everything was running smoothly. The skeleton crew there assured him that all was well. He had the urge to pace the deck of the bridge, but when the ship wasn't going anywhere it wasn't logical to keep a vigil.
Spock began purposefully wandering the halls, checking in on engineering, transport, auxiliary control, and several other of the countless station. When he found himself even checking in on sick bay he knew that he was making these rounds not because they needed to be done, but because he needed something to do.
Can I help you, Mr. Spock?
No, Miss Chapel, I am simply checking the stations.
Oh, well things won't get busy here for another six hours or so.
Am I to understand that you do indeed see an increase in activity when visiting a Starbase?
Extinction ch 6NOTE from the PHOENIX: A kind reader was nice enough to remind me of Uhura's first name, which Spock really should be using when they are alone. It was one of those things that I meant to look up (cause I didn't quite remember it from the movie) and I never did. I'm so lazy. Giggle. So now I know it! I will at some point go back and fix the previous chapter, but for now I'm just plowing ahead.Extinction ch 66 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It had been a week since Uhura had walked off in anger. She had decided to take advantage of the shore leave and been staying on the Starbase. Spock had not sought her out for either apologies or explanations. The extended time docked while the crew took turns at shore leave and the ship was repaired and restocked left Spock with virtually nothing to occupy himself with.
Under normal conditions he would have sought to catch up on reading through Memory Alpha's extensive scien

You knew him, Spock?
Briefly. He sought me out two years ago, to aid him in his decision to enter Star Fleet. After reviewing his qualifications I not only suggested he join, I also wrote him a letter of recommendation.
And he was mentally healthy at the time? Bones asked.
Of course, I would not have recommended him otherwise.
How is life at the Academy for a Vulcan? Kirk asked.
I do not understand.
Ninety-nine percent of the cadets and staff are human, it can't be easy for an alien.
Star Fleet Academy is not easy for anyone, it is designed to weed out the weak.
That's not what I meant, Spock. Kirk smiled sadly. I meant on a personal level, I know you had to work twice as hard to prove yourself there.

Four days after the wedding Spock was back at his place on the bridge. Uhura was off duty at the moment and a young Midshipman was in her station. Spock had come to his senses before she had caught him passed out on the bathroom floor. Since he had been uninjured by the fall he had made the decision not to bother sick bay with the incident.
For all Spock knew it was a perfectly normal reaction to what had transpired between himself and Uhura. It was the longest he had ever kept a mind link with someone before and that in itself was a taxing occupation. With his father dead he had no one to ask if he should be concerned or not. Since the event had not repeated itself he decided to ignore it.
The Enterprise approached the planet that they had been sent out to survey and settled into an orbit. Leaning forward over the panel Spock concentrated on the sensor readings that were c

I've never performed a Vulcan wedding before.
No human has.
Great, no pressure.
In any case, Captain, I do not ask that you perform a traditional Vulcan ceremony, the human traditions will suffice.
Right...and how does the broom work into all of that?
That is a human custom.
Not one I'm familiar with.
That is because you are only familiar with the culture surrounding the 'Midwest', Bones interjected there is far more to the Earth than Iowa, Jim.
No there isn't. Kirk smiled.
The tradition is known as 'Jumping the Broom'. Spock explained. It has its roots in both African and African-American culture, it symbolizes sweeping away the old and welcoming the new as a bonded couple. It was also said to be used during the period in Earth's history where slavery prevent

Blurry eye and sporting a five oclock shadow McCoy headed down towards medical. After the rescue mission he had been exhausted, and the five hours of sleep he had gotten hadnt done much to change the situation. When his alarm had gone off this morning he had seriously considered just rolling over and going back to sleep. However he knew that both Saavik and Spock would be waiting for him and he wasnt about to suffer the Vulcans in their quiet arrogance about his human sleeping habits.

Spock woke to an unfamiliar sensation, one he did not find pleasant. Bones would have diagnosed it as a headache. Swallowing against a dry throat he tried to organize his thoughts. The differences between reality and nightmare had started to blur lately. Spock slowly opened his eyes and closed them tightly against the painfully bright light.
Quiet nosies that he couldn't identify mixed with an incoherent muttering that was barely above a whisper assaulted his hearing and caused his blood to flash to ice as fear suddenly lanced through his laboring heart. Irritated by the illogical anxiety Spock ground his teeth together. Realizing that the motion only caused his irritation to escalate into near fury he struggled to control his emotional swings through meditation.
A slow deep breath brought warm air into his lungs, air far warmer than any found on the Enterprise.

It's not starvation. Spock is in some sort of self induced coma...
A Vulcan trick no doubt. Kirk noted.
I'm sure that it is, however, despite the calm exterior his green paint thinner blood is boiling with adrenaline, dopamine, seritonin, insulin, testosterone, endorphins...the list goes on.
Those are all hormones.
Yes, and powerful ones at that. They are pushing his organs to the limit, even with his Vulcan physiology given enough time it is going to kill him. Bones looked down on Spock and shook his head. I can't believe that he can hold still, he should be bouncing off the walls like a Timmarian winged swamp rat hopped up on Rigilian mushrooms with all the chemical that are coursing through his veins.
What about his mental state?

'Captain, I do not advise you"
'I'm the captain, I can do what I want Spock.'
The spot right under the Vulcan's left rib ached harshly. It was burning with a sensation he only felt when near his mother. His dead mother, yet another reason Jim should not be left to choose his own decisions. Why was his heart pounding faster?
His legs carried him to the Medical Bay. He would find solutions to his unanswered questions there. He would get a medical from the doctor. He would know what is wrong with him.
The burning sensation moved to his head. There were eyes on his body; people were looking at him. Why were they looking at him? What was he doing wrong? Unintentionally, his fingers were slowly curling into stressed fists. It was Jim's fault, it was all his fault.

Gentlemen, if you don't work this problem out among yourselves in the next five minutes I'm going to go back up to my ship and end it for you...permanently.
Standing to Kirk's side in his dress uniform Bones nearly choked on his own spit in reaction to his Captain's sudden outburst. The two delegates from the waring planets froze solid and stared at him in a shocked silence. McCoy took Kirk by the elbow and forced a smile at the delegates.
Excuse us for a moment.
Kirk rolled his eyes slightly as Bones dragged him through the archway into the next room. McCoy was absolutely speechless at first, but after a quick breath he found his voice once more.
Are you out of your mind? McCoy demanded.
I can't listen to them bicker about this any longer, it's ridiculous.
Whatever happened to diplomacy?
That's Spock's area of expertise.
Granted, but you'd better go

Spock, have you completely lost your Vulcan mind?
No, Captain. I did only what was logical.
Logical? Bones snapped. You killed eight men!
I saved four hundred and thirty-seven, possibly nine hundred and forty-two if the Enterprise had also been taken or destroyed.
Kirk and Bones looked to one another, Spock did have a point. Sitting at the briefing room table Kirk reached up and pinched the bridge of his nose. His normally solid as a rock First Officer was quickly becoming a loose cannon. The shift in personality was increasingly alarming, and the violence of his recent actions was spreading through the ship like wildfire. As it was there were enough of the crew that were leery of having a Vulcan on board.

Uhura jerked awake with the taste of a nightmare stinging the back of her throat. Closing her eyes she took a few deep breaths to try and calm her racing heart. Still feeling anxious she rolled over to curl up next to Spock. However her hand only fell on empty cold sheets.
Sitting up in the darkened bedroom Uhura looked down at vacant space. Her heart skipped painful as she noticed the dark stain of dried blood on Spocks abandoned pillow. Uhura got out of bed, taking the sheets with her as a makeshift dress. The door between the bedroom and the living area was closed, which was very unusual.
Uhura hesitated to active the door, fearing what she might find on the other side. Swallowing hard she ran her fingertips over the panel that caused the door to silently slide open. Uhura bit down on her lower lip to keep herself from gasping. The far w

It had been two weeks since Spock's one man take over of the USS Independence. They had done all they could for the ship and she had headed back to Earth alone. After finishing up with the class K planet they were now heading through the vastness of space towards a peace treaty signing between to waring worlds that the Federation had agreed to mediate.
Kirk sat in the Captain's chair staring out the front view screen at the stars that slowly moved past them. It was around shift change time, but he had no intention of leaving the bridge. It wasn't that the Enterprise needed him sitting here, he simply didn't have anywhere better on the ship to be. He glanced over at the empty spot where Spock was usually staring at the sensors.
I hate mediations. Kirk muttered to himself. Mr. Sulu, is there anyway we can get there sooner? Quicker we get there,

How much time do we have? Kirk asked
At this speed? Scotty thought about the calculations for a moment. An hour, hour and a half.
What? Bones demanded. Weve been traveling away from the black hole for over a day!
Yes, Doctor, at a sane speed, we are not going a sane speed at the moment. Scotty replied. Plus ya cant just bring her to a dead stop at this point, there is also the fact that the black hole itself is going to be accelerating us the moment we get into the gravitational reach. The closer we get the faster and faster were going to go. Although theres a good chance the engine will blow up before we even get there.
We also need time to gain access to all the codes Spocks changed. Kirk said.

Spock sat on the edge of the bed hunched over with his elbows resting on his knees. He passively watched the blood drip from his face down onto his folded hands, from there it splattered onto the floor. Unchecked the nose bleed continued to slip a slow moving green river over his lips on its journey to the floor.
It wasnt the bloody stain on his hands that held his gaze, it was the plain band ring he wore. Much like the insignia it hadnt been worth fighting him for so he had been allowed to keep it. However, with his wife so far away the once gold metal had faded to a dull and cold steel. He tried to remember Uhuras touch, but it just brought a sharper pain to his heart. Eventually enough blood fell onto his hands to cover the ring.
Spock closed his eyes, but it didnt help block out the voices that had returned. He knew now that the chaotic screa
