spock: live long and prosper bitch

4 Star Trek Recs

The Potatoes of Defiance by boosette - the most plausible and beautifully characterized Number One back story I have ever read

Like Lightening by ninhursag - Jim gets his first tattoo when he's fourteen. Revealing the full reason would require me to reveal the ending, so I'll just say instead that the premise is beautiful and well executed

Reunion by callieach - Pike meets Spock Prime in the aftermath of the Narada incident

The Right Path Might Be One Previous the Traveled by idea_of_sarcasm - Christine Chapel on the long road to becoming a doctor. A very thoughtful consideration of the moments that might have shaped her life and decisions, all related in a believable, interesting Chapel voice.
