“Do something!” Uhura shouted as she listed to Spock let out
“I can’t, this is something he has to break through and to
remember that it isn’t real. That it isn’t his memory and until he says his
phrase or it becomes life threatening…he can take it.” Bones explained to her
looking at the vitals for the both of you.
“Bones…” Jim said in a low tone, “We don’t even know what’s
going on…they could’ve been trying to kill her…”
“I know…but she’s not dead so…he should be fine” Bones
sighed only half believing it himself.
“Bones, why isn’t she responding anymore?” Jim stood up
looking at him demanding answers.
“She’s gone in deep…deeper than I thought she’d be able to
go. She’s got no tether to come back to, no life raft.” Bones looked at him as
he gave Spock the mildest sedative through an injection, “It’s on Spock to pull
them back. He’s in there as an observer, is how he explained it…if he can get
her back…then we can pull them out.”
“What if he can’t?” Jim turned Bones to face him when he
didn’t answer, “Bones…what if he can’t get her back…”
“I don’t know.” He shook his head, “I didn’t expect this…to
“Then why did you suggest it!” Jim raised his voice as Nyota
began to look pissed.
“Because they’re going to lock her up, Jim!” Bones shouted
back making his friend silent, “They’re not finding any answers from the crew
or the ship, so they’re going to lock the ‘problem’ up in a dark closet.”
“What…” Jim took a step back in front of where you lay as if
protecting you, “they can’t just…”
“They can, Jim.” Bones slumped his shoulders in slight
defeat, “When I found out I went to the board with my suggestion…We owe her our
lives, and she obviously has great care for the ship and the crew. For Christ
sake, she brought us home…I couldn’t just let her be locked up for helping us.”
Jim looked down to you frowning as he saw your fist clenched
tightly. He wanted to just shake you awake and take you home. Finally he looked
back to Bones, “How do we help them?”
You stood on the bridge feeling jarred as Jim walked onto
the bridge, Your heart thumped in your
ears as you tried to get your bearings. You felt sick as you watched him walk
over to the chair getting Sulu to move. You couldn’t hear as you watched him
move over to Spock.
It started to click slowly…five years…
You shut your eyes for a moment trying to get everything to
settle down. That’s when you heard him, “Y/N…”
You opened your eyes looking over to right at Spock and
looked back to your left at Spock talking to Jim, “What…”
“Y/N…this is a deep state memory…try and remember…” he
looked so beaten up and tired.
“Spock?” You were still trying to catch up to what was going
“Yes…you’re in a dream…” He tried to explain better, “You’ve
just experienced psychological torture…do you not remember?”
Your eyes got wide as you felt a surge rush through your
spine your hands grabbing your head, “Wha…I…”
“Y/N…” Spock took your shoulders in his hands, “You’re
safe…they cannot hurt you anymore, as you are not there. Remember…you are on
Dr. McCoy’s couch where we a conducting a test.”
You took hold of his arms opening your eyes slowly, “…how
are you doing this?”
“Our minds are melded.” He held onto you watching you
carefully, “I am experiencing your memories as they come to you.”
“To find the truth.” You told him as he nodded.
“We need to understand you. What you went through and what provoked
you to come forward when you did.” He told you as you let go looking back to
Jim on the bridge, “Y/N…I need you to show me what they did to provoke you to
come out to us.”
“Please…” You swallowed shaking your head, “Please don’t ask
me to do that, Mr. Spock.”
He stared at you for a moment before speaking slowly, “You
remember…Y/N…to prove your innocence and get the Enterprise released…we need to
have all the facts.”
“Spock…” You looked at him the bridge fading away leaving
them in a dark space, “This is taking its toll on you…”
“I know my limits.” He looked down at you, “I will hold out.”
“It…” You shut your eyes, “was the attack from Krall…”
Spock looked over to you standing on the bridge. You were
pulling up your own specs viewing at the approaching swarm. He could see the
panic in your eyes as you looked to Jim who was no better then you.
“I will not…” You turned pulling up your screens again.
Spock could only watch as your people came from nowhere surrounding you, “You
can’t do this!”
“Hold her down!” One shouted as you struggled against them.
“I will not let this ship get destroyed! I will not let
these people die! Not again!” You let out a scream as they dragged you from the
“Get her off the ship!”
“Ahh!” You screamed falling through the floor to a lower
deck. Already the ship was being ripped apart and you could feel it. You felt
the fear of the crew and desire to live flooding you. Yet you were being pulled
from the ship. The last time you saw the Enterprise that day it the saucer was
falling toward the planet.
Again you were in a dark room strapped to chair, “Shame…”
You looked at the woman again walking out of the darkness, “I
will not…let you do this…again…”
“If your crew wasn’t so important…if your captain wasn’t so
influential…” She leaned down looking into your eyes, “Believe me we wouldn’t
be…but it’s too problematic to find a new guide.”
“You can’t…keep us from helping them.” You teared up, “You
can’t stop us from forming a bond with them. We can help them.”
“That’s not out place!” She shouted at you.
“We will not stand for it! I will not!” You shouted back, “I
will not stand by anymore when we have the ability to save them!”
She smacked you across the face, “Stupid girl.”
You stared at her fire in burning in your eyes, “We could
benefit one another…both our races and you know it.”
“This is the last time we will reeducate you.” The woman
stepped back, “Next time there will be nothing I can do for you.”
“Please…” You started to tear up, “Please don’t do this…”
“Shh…” She touched your cheek, “When you wake up, you will
have a new ship and no doubt your captain back.”
As she stepped back into the darkness you heard her speak, “Don’t
“No…nono…please…” You began to beg as two men approached
“Burnt eggs.” Spock aloud sweating profusely.
Jim looked to Bones and Uhura moved to Spock, “Shut it off.”
“Burnt…eggs…” He said again through gritted teeth.
“Bones!” Jim moved over to you.
“I’m working on it!” Bones whipped up an injection shooting
it into Spocks neck.
His eyes flashed open taking in a deep breath. Uhura held
him by the shoulders as Bones moved to inspect him, “Spock…are you okay?”
“Water…” He said breathless.
She nodded to him getting up running for the kitchen as
Bones scanned him, “What happened?”
