Author 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.
Why You Should Read This: Spock meets Jim at Tarsus IV and he somehow becomes ‘guardian’ of the young sixteen years old. The writer charms you with the inner logical thoughts of Spock’s interpretation of human behaviour. You see Spock coaxing Jim in living alive and looking at the future while Jim tries to educate in human ways. It covers several years of their friendship which builds into a relationship of equals.
