I like this story, a brief encounter that packs a lot of impact :-D I love how Spock kept staring at his hand and admitted to himself the contentment he felt when he touched Jim's hand - something more visceral than his prudent courtship with Uhura ever brought him :). You have all the characters very true to themselves, Kirk brash but not mean, Spock controlled but not unemotional as he would have people believe, and Uhura reserved and intelligent. It was a nice detail to mention how Spock was puzzled at the cadet's identity because he wasn't on the official lists:) Yes, I could imagine this having happened in the course of the movie, a delted scene of sorts. A delightful snippet.
Wow, thank you so much! I try to make the characters as true to themselves as I can. I can't write Kirk as meanspirited, because he's just not that way without at VERY good reason! He allowed Nero, the guy who killed his father and wrecked his life, a chance to surrender when he could've just shot him. What a guy! *sigh* LOL a deleted scene, I wish!! That would be hilarious.
