Title and pairing for the fic you'll never write... hmm... let's go with Spock and Kirk, and the title is... "Holding Out." Do with that what you will!
Oooh, that’s a nice ambiguous one!
When the Enterprise faces down a pirate vessel on a routine mission, Captain Kirk orders the ship caught in their tracking beam and the crew transported aboard. The orders from the Federation are clear: repossess the
huge store of minerals the pirates have stolen from a nearby mining colony and bring the criminals responsible to the nearest space station for official judgement.
But as the pirate ship’s crew arrives in the transport room, Jim freezes when he sees their captain, a man with an uncanny resemblance to him. With the uncooperative pirates in the brig, and his captain avoiding all queries about the matter, will Spock be able to find out what Jim’s connection is to this man and his crew before the trial – and before his fragile new relationship with his captain is damaged forever?
