    Spock mourning Kirk in TOS

    Yesterday @queenofgol posted, You know what? I’ve never read a TOS version of Jim dying like Spock did in The Wrath of Khan, and Spock’s subsequent reaction. Not AOS, not Into Darkness- just a TOS version of Jim’s death…….. interesting……

    To which I replied, It happens all the time in TOS, my dude.

    And she requested some examples. Just off the top of my head… In 1x25 “The Devil in the Dark,” Spock briefly believes that Kirk has been killed or seriously injured by falling rocks.


    KIRK: Yes, Mister Spock, I’m all right. We seem to have had a cave-in.
    SPOCK: I could phaser you out. 
    KIRK: No. No, no, you’d better not. Any disturbance might bring down the rest of the wall. Besides, it isn’t necessary. The chart said the tunnels meet further on.
    SPOCK: Very well, but I find it extremely disquieting that your roof chose that particular moment to collapse. Please proceed with extreme caution. I shall quicken my pace.

    2x01 “Amok Time.” Spock realizes that he has strangled Kirk to death.


    T'PAU: Live long and prosper, Spock. SPOCK: I shall do neither. I have killed my captain and my friend. Energize. Later, in sickbay… SPOCK: Doctor, I shall be resigning my commission immediately, of course. MCCOY: Spock, I SPOCK: So I would appreciate your making the final arrangements. MCCOY: Spock, I SPOCK: Doctor, please, let me finish. There can be no excuse for the crime of which I’m guilty. I intend to offer no defence. Furthermore, I shall order Mister Scott to take immediate command of this vessel. KIRK: Don’t you think you better check with me first? SPOCK: Captain! Jim!

    3x09 “The Tholian Web.” Spock realizes Kirk must be dead.


    Spock and McCoy watch a tape meant to be viewed by them in the event of Kirk’s demise. When the tape is complete, Spock slowly removes the data chip and carefully places it inside its sleeve where it belongs and pauses, grief-stricken. MCCOY: Spock, I, er, I’m sorry. It does hurt, doesn’t it? SPOCK: What would you have me say, Doctor?

    In 3x16 “The Mark of Gideon,” Kirk should have beamed down at certain coordinates, but never arrived. Spock’s request to beam down and conduct a search for the captain is refused by the ambassador. Spock is frustrated. SPOCK: Institute a sensor scan three hundred and sixty degrees, one degree at a time. MCCOY: You mean you’re going to scan space for him? SULU: But, sir, that could take years. SPOCK: Then the sooner you begin, the better.


    btw if you live in the midwest (a region where a lot of the states are going to have trigger laws or ban abortion completely it looks like) and if it’s possible that you can leave ur state, get to illinois. Illinois isn’t just a state where abortion is permitted, in illinois abortion is strictly a protected right. illinois’ right to abortion is permanent and isn’t going to be changed anytime soon. in illinois your abortion rights are completely confidential. illinois is one of the easiest states to access abortion in and the process is fairly simple, and it’s going to always be legal to do so even as the right to abortion is overturned in other states. it’s very much a safe haven to anyone who needs to flee their state right now. if anyone can provide any resources and links that would be greatly appreciated.


    here is a post detailing how you can get an abortion in chicago.

    it’s extremely in depth and shares a lot of very valuable info if coming here is in your best interest.


    Just to mention it, as I’m sure others have, as of 6/1/2022 all minors can get an abortion in Illinois without parental consent or parental notification (previously, you had to get a court order to skip the notification). Also, Midwest Access Coalition is a group dedicated to providing funds to those who need to travel here to get an abortion. Please do pass this info on to anyone who may need it.


    something like 80% of the chicago abortion fund’s funds were used for people coming in from out of state.

    that’s not a bad thing at all, it’s necessary medical work. please do come here. we’d love to have you in.

    everyone else: donate to the chicago abortion fund.

    imagine spock going back to vulcan to be honored with an award for scientific excellency or whatever

    and even though its an award ceremony its still very solemn theres no clapping or cheering when people come on stage

    finally its spocks turn and as he bows to the high priest and straightens up to receive his medal he hears a REALLY LOUD whistle from the audience

    and he turns around and jims in the middle of all these stone faced vulcans like
