Spirk in Episode 12
In this episode, Spock directly disobeys orders to visit Captain Pike and bring him to a forbidden planet.
NGL, this (and the second part) was my least favorite episodes, since it was just a retelling of the pilot, but hot damn it has so many Spirk moments.
Kirk will believe Spock over a commanding officer telling him that something is impossible. There was no hesitation at all.
When the records show that your
boyfriend first officer was either lying or had been framed, choose the option that protects your boyfriend.
After Spock commandeered the Enterprise to bring Captain Pike to Talos IV, Kirk and Commodore Mendez take a shuttlecraft to stop him/find out wtf is going on.
That moment of sadness.
HE IS SO READY TO TURN THIS DAMN CAR AROUND.
And the hurt in his face when he decides not to just kills me.
After dropping Pike off at Talos IV, Spock picks up the shuttle and brings it back to the starbase. As a result, he goes on trial.
I mean there was that one time in my first deep space mission that I delayed in firing on that cloud thing and everyone except me was destroyed. But nah, this is more devastating.
Normally, when Spock outwits someone, he has that little self-satisfied smirk on his face, but he knows what this is doing to Kirk and he doesn’t want to force Kirk to watch this happen but it needs to happen and he’s just so sad.
Spock gets threatened with the death penalty, amount of fucks given: None.
Kirk gets threatened with something. Amount of fucks given:
HE SAID PLEASE AND CALLED KIRK “JIM” INSTEAD OF “CAPTAIN” HOT DAMN I PRAY FOR THE SWEET EMBRACE OF DEATH.
