Summary: Detective Spock, born on Vulcan and resident of San Francisco, is assigned to the Midwest police bureau. I think everyone can guess what happens next.

Why You Should Read This: Spock in a police uniform. 🙂 Spock’s and Kirk’s relationship develops slowly and includes a longing James. The characters are recognizable despite them being influenced by different circumstances.


  1. A wonderful read! It’s still Jim and Spock (and Bones and Uhura and Pike and Amanda) from Reboot but just AU enough to be its own story. It’s very nicely done.

    Thanks for a great rec!

  2. I was so sad to reach the end. It was a fabulous read. I love pining Kirk, because he needs it.

  3. Good characterisation of main proponents. Nice to read Winona Kirk as a person. Interesting AU.
