There was certainly potential for this sort of conversation.

I have thought about why Spock would't have told Kirk about Sarek. He was in a Catch 22. If he told Kirk he and his father were estranged, then Sarek showed up and acted like a decent person, then he would have unnecessarily set the Captain against his father, complicating a future diplomatic situation...Since the Enterprise seldom had other Vulcans on board, it would have been reasonable to expect the captain would have been curious enough to read up on the visitors before they arrived-regardless of what Spock told him in a briefing. Also, as his Friend, I would have thought Kirk would have at least have looked into who Spock's parents were..That would not have been classified information-and not many Vulcans-much less Ambassadors-have human wives...That was laziness on Kirk's part...

I love their relationship. I decided that Spock didn't warn Kirk for 2 reasons: 1. He would have thought it might occur to Kirk that a Vulcan ambassador accompanied by a human wife just MIGHT be Spocks parents; and 2. Amanda mentioned they hadn't spoken as father and son since Spock joined star fleet, and he hadn't been home in 4 years. Spock would hope Sarek would logically be civil since he was after all an ambassador, who would know the ramifications of embarrassing Spock in front of his crewmates-even if Sarek was still angry with him. If Spock had warned Kirk in advance that his parents were coming and his father still disapproved of him being in star fleet, Kirk would have been angry when he met Sarek, and if Sarek had decided to accept Spock's choice then the Vulcan would have unnecessarily prejudiced Kirk against Sarek. Spock really
had no choice but to wait and see how Sarek decided to play it.

What a great little gem of a story! Thank you so much. This was a "tale" that very much NEEDED to be told...and it read so well, that I just Had to read it out loud. I love a good "script" in a short story. Very well done. Thank you!

Nice one-shot! This follow-up to JTB is very believable, and Spock and Amanda are perfectly in-character. Thanks for posting!

When I watched this episode the first time , I was also surprised that Spock did not tell his captain that he was the Vulcan ambassador'son...Thank you to write this fic.

This is very nice. :-) I have seen this question asked before (why didn't Kirk know about Spock's parents), but only rarely and never by Amanda - when in fact Amanda is probably the most appropriate one to broach the subject, both from her POV and Spock's. The conversation was well handled, I especially like the bit about the idioms. :-)

You know, people complain about the lack of character development in TOS, but I feel like it's amazing all the imagination we get to put into all the little gaps in this show simply due to the producers/writers inability to think ahead and connect the episodes... ;-)

Loved it. Your Amanda and Spock sound very in-character and authentic.
