I got a kick out of this story. It had occurred to me in the past that with a really desirable officer with mad skills that there might be a bit of jockeying to get that candidate to fill a post, but I never thought of it like this, lol. I especially laughed because my perception of Spock has always been that he is so orderly, neat, and clean. Seeing in the middle of filth like that was a bit of a mind blower. Thanks for the story and the laughs.
I'm glad you liked it! I grew up reading Hornblower and poaching crew (and even worse luring away officers) from one ship to another is an element I've always wanted to do more with in star trek fanfic :). We'll see if it pops up more in the future.
I think the first idea for this story was a very prim and secretly ngry Mr. Spock sitting and working on the pillar, his face lit up by the screen. And then Jim coming to get him :).
