As soon as the transporter room formed around him, Captain Kirk was snapping off orders. Scotty, Sulu, a random red shirt. No one in that room missed his wrath. No one questioned him either. They nodded or shot back a simple aye before disappearing to do their requested works.
Sometimes being captain had its perks.
It was just when he had finished ordering Uhura to contact Star Fleet that Bones arrived.
Jim, just what has gotten your pants in a bunch? He grumbled as he stepped over to the frazzled captain. Everyones running around like. Just what everyone was running arou

Up on the viewing screen a cocky male Romulan smirked down at Captain James T. Kirk of the star ship Enterprise. After a seconds pause he started to nod. Kirk opened his mouth to complain but the Romulans hand snapped up to stop him.
I am aware of my actions, Captain. But I am here for a very good reason, the Romulan captain said. Kirks eyes narrowed and he frowned heavily. Dont look like that. Its a good reason, really.

As soon as Captain and First Officer left the bridge the Medical Officer appeared and he looked like he had just swallowed a Centurian Slug with lemons to wash it down. He stalked up the corridor toward them; his footsteps echoed off the near empty hallway. One glance at Spock told Kirk that the unmovable Vulcan was slightly unnerved about the doctors terrifying walk. Then again nearly everyone in the Fleet had heard about the good doctors hypospray-happy-hand.
Dr. Leonard Bones McCoy stopped in front of the two men. Placing his hands on his hips he looked between them. Finally his angry gaze settled on Kirk. Long seconds passed in tense silence. Even Spock had to shift slightly under the glare.
What in Gods good name are you two planning? He hissed, leaning forward slight

Spock had been an adult for three days and he has a serious problem.
It wouldn't have been that much of a problem if it didn't keep surfacing in his mind. Nothing he did would make it go away either. In the end he decided he just had to face it and do something about it.
The entire time that Spock had been stuck in the body of a child Captain Kirk had been exceedingly kind to him. He had allowed a tiny Vulcan to invade his bed, his time and his life (in essence). By all accounts that meant he should do something as a sign of appreciation.
The problem was things like 'thank you' and compliments were considered unnecessary for Vulcans. The other should just know that they were appreciated. However, having lived with humans for the past nine years of his life (and his mother for the entirety), giving thanks was something that was widely accepted and even counted upon for them.
Therefore, Spock had to fight past his Vulcan teachings and find away to thank the one pe

Her voice was smooth and deep. Not at all like honey sweet voice of Amanda. Kirk gapped at her. Thats not at all becoming of you, she whispered silkily.
Those words seemed to pull Kirk out of his amazement. You! What have you done with Amanda? Wheres Spock? He rattled off question after question. The Romulan woman stepped to the side and looked farther into the chamber. Kirk closed his mouth and followed her gaze.
At first he wasnt sure what he was staring at. It looked like Spocks clothes only something was still in it; something much smaller than the original. In dead silence he stepped closer.
It was Spock.
Just not Spock.
He looked a lot smaller. Kneeling down he took a closer look. His eyes widened. This was still Spock he was just ten years younger. Kirks mouth dropped open. He was currently staring at a ten year old Spock.

Whether he liked to admit it or not Kirk was actually starting to enjoy walking through the Romulan ship. It was intensely interesting. Just the basic set up was enough to keep him busy for at least an hour. He had the feeling that if Scotty had come he would have tried to rip the ship apart just to figure out how the lights worked. Speaking of lights, everything was set at a dim lighting and tinted red. It gave everything a very surreal feeling to it.
I see you like my ship, Captain, Dnal said quietly. Kirk had just been staring at the walls like they were at a museum. Jerking his eyes away from the walls, Kirk looked at the Romulan. He pursed his lips and nodded his head lightly.
Its Nice, he said.
The other captain laughed. With a shake of his head, he looked up ahead at the Vulc

Desmond was bored out of his skull. There was absolutely nothing for him to do. For once in his life, he seriously considered the Animus as an alternative form of entertainment. However, that thought was quickly banished when he glanced at the innocent looking chair. He wrinkled his nose and looked back around the room. He sighed deeply.
"Seriously, Desmond? Are you just going to sit there and sigh until the girls get back?" Shaun snapped, his gaze focused on the computer screen infront of him.
"What are you talking about?" Desmond responded. He was sitting behind the historians chair; comic books littering the ground around him.
"That has to be the fiftith time you've sigh since they left."
"Talk to me when it reaches a hundred," he muttered.
Shaun groaned softly and hunched further over his keybroad, desprately trying to ignore the man on the floor.
A little over an hour ago Lucy and Rebecca had left the safe house. They, apparently, couldn't handle be

After leaving the bridge Kirk took Spock down to the mess hall. Whenever he was upset he loved to grab some food. There was nothing more comforting food. So, that was his plan. And being the compassionate man that he was, Kirk took all the back passages to make sure they didn't run into to many crew members.
Hopefully that would help Spock.
Since the bridge Spock hadn't spoken, he didn't even object when Kirk grabbed his hand again. He had just stared at the ground and allowed Kirk to gently guide him to wherever they were going.
When they reached the mess hall Kirk paused a second to ask the computer how many people were inside.
"Thank you, computer," he mumbled as he stepped inside, pulling Spock with him. To his immense joy one of the three people in the room was Bones. The other two were ensigns, the girl was f

There had to be somewhere in the Star Fleet Regulations that said wearing socks down to the bridge wasn't allowed. Spock mused about this the entire way. Since Kirk didn't have any shoes small enough, and he didn't really want to spend his time running around the Enterprise looking for some, he ended up giving Spock a pair of black socks. Before Spock could complain the captain had shoved him out the door and down the hall.
While they walked Kirk's hand wrapped around his. The hand thing was starting to bother him but he didn't want to tell the captain 'no'. When he really was twelve he had read a book on Earth parenting tips. One of the tips said to hold the child's hand to give them a sense of security and comfort.
He supposed that was what Kirk was doing. Or the man just liked to hold hands. Either one.
Stepping into the turbo lift was the start of Spock's humiliation.
Scotty was there when they got in. He took one look at the new Spock and bubbled into laughter

"You will see me again."
His voice was smooth, confident. If the situation had been anything else, it might have been easy to belive him. But, it was what it was. Those words were nothing more than a vague comfort.
"No, Altair. I can't--"
"Stop, Malik. I will return. This will not be the last time you see me, I promise."
It was, indeed, the last time he saw the Great Eagle. For three long years he waited by the gates for every group that arrived. Eagerly he searched the returning faces hoping it would finally be the one he desired. Just one glimpse, even a hint of that face to greet him. It never was. One day he just had to admit to himself that that face would never return. He would never be able to touch that heat. Never speak with those confident tones. Never again would it be anything more than just a memory. He had kicked, screamed and fought against the very idea. There was no way he was going to give up the last thing he had truly connected with

The Sick Bay doors swished close behind him. The familiar, almost sickening, scent of hyposprays, disinfectant and, oddly, brandy, reached his nose.
Jim, were back here.
Bones voice drifted over to him from one of the back private patient rooms. A of feeling panic snapped across his heart. Bones never used the back rooms. He said if they had to be used it could only be in extreme cases. Clearing his throat he headed toward them.
Hopefully this wasnt an extreme case.
Captain. Nurse Chapel stopped him just before he entered the room. Doctor McCoy has requested that no sudden movements or loud noises be made when you go in.
Why? Is Spock..?
Hes fine. We just want to make sure that
Upset Youth - 1Chapter One:Upset Youth - 15 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
For the first time in his young life, Spock felt, thought, that the Vulcan culture (and the biology that came with it), was illogical. Normally Vulcan culture wasn't a problem and, he had believed, never would have been one. However, it was now because of Vulcans that he was being sent across the Milky Way to the planet Earth. It was thanks to Vulcans that he and his mother had to spend the next month and a half on a planet run by emotional creatures.
Not that his mother minded, apparently.
To be sure, it wasn't the Vulcans themselves that Spock suddenly had a problem with. It was their unfortunate biology that was the problem. It was a single biological phase that was uprooting his fragile life and flinging all the way across the Milky Way to a place he had only read about.
At that very moment Spock's father, Sarek was experiencing the dreaded time that most Vulcans never even dared to speak of. He was suffering through Pon Farr; a time that was both dangerous and
