There are a million and one reasons why Journey to Babel is one of my favorite TOS episodes, but Jim trying to connect with Sarek really gets me hard in the feels.
Once Jim finds out he’s in the company of Spock’s parents and the situation between Sarek and Spock, he immediately makes it a priority to try to have a hand in healing them.
Jim hits it off with Amanda immediately, but it’s so sweet that he wants Sarek to like him and wants to see him show appreciation for Spock.
It’s like he has this eureka moment and sees that the majority of Spock’s insecurities about his lineage stem from Sarek and it becomes his mission to make Sarek proud of Spock.
Jim starts literally SHOWING SPOCK OFF to his dad.
Look at how amazing Spock is with computers, as an officer, as a friend.
SAREK. LOOK AT THIS PERFECT BEING.
LOOK AT THIS MASTERPIECE YOU AND AMANDA HAVE CREATED.
He is positively desperate to get Sarek to see Spock the way he does: to admire him endlessly and be proud of him.
Sarek pushes back, but by the end of the episode, you can see that Spock and Jim succeed in getting a bit of cred out of Sarek.
Later, Jim forms a special relationship with Sarek and it touches me to no end. That Sarek would feel close enough to Jim to discuss personal Vulcan and family matters with him. He trusts Jim enough to straight up ask him: PLEASE. SAVE MY SON. You are the person I trust with the life of my child because you are the only one I know that loves him as much as I do.
I MEAN …
We start off with Jim hitting Sarek over the head with Spock:
Jim: LOVE YOUR SON LIKE I DO.
And then by the end of it, we have Sarek having to thank Jim for making the most extreme sacrifices in the entirety of his life to save Spock because he loves him THAT MUCH, and over time with Jim’s help, Sarek can finally admit in his own way that he loves Spock, too.
I guess what I’m trying to say is …
JIM IS THE BEST HUSBAND EVER.
(Do not come back at me unless you can come up with someone who is willing to explode their house, sacrifice their son, throw away decades of service and devotion to their job, steal, KILL – do I really need to go on here guys? Really.)
