Summary: If you’re Starfleet, you spend your whole life wishing you never see an EPAS uniform right up until the moment they become your only hope. Whether you’re dying a slow, cold death in space, or a long painful one on some godforsaken planet, they’re going to come for you. So count your last breaths, son, and hold on tight. They leave no soul behind.
Why You Should Read This: This fic is epic. One year after Vulcan is destroyed, Spock is a member of the Emegency Personnel Ambulance Service. These people are badass; they’re the ones who who risk their lives to bring Starfleet personnel home, heading into extremely dangerous situations. It’s not a job for the faint of heart. After being absolutely done with the Command track, Jim is transferred to the EPAS. This fic is incredibly well-written and amazingly plotted. This is the type of fic a reader can disappear into. The characters seem like themselves, and the relationship that forms between Jim and Spock is believable and wonderful. If you’re going to read a Kirk/Spock fic, it should be this one.
