I’m not one for coffee shop AUs at all, but this pun seemed to hard to pass up. AKA that AU where Scotty and Bones work part time at the Starfleet beanery and Jim comes to periodically bug them bc he’s the world’s shittiest friend.
The Vulcan instructor claims he only tags along for the tea because Vulcans Do Not Lie.
There will always be those who mean to do us harm. To stop them, we risk awakening the same evil within ourselves. Our first instinct is to seek revenge when those we love are taken from us. But that’s not who we are… When Christopher Pike first gave me his ship, he had me recite the Captain’s Oath. Words I didn’t appreciate at the time. But now I see them as a call for us to remember who we once were and who we must be again. And those words: Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Her five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.
