The mission was supposed to be routine.
First officer Spock served as mission commander, something he'd done dozens of times, more increasingly without Kirk being there. They made plans to complete their chess game when Spock and the others returned from the mission.
Only they never returned.
Captain Kirk was facing the no-win scenario he always dreaded and insisted he would not accept. Now for the first time, it seemed, he wasn't going to win this one. As the true meaning of his deeper, long held-in feelings for his Vulcan first officer became forefront in his mind and heart, it was too late.
He faced unspeakable loss.
But miracles can happen. Kirk made them happen himself over and over.
When he learns Spock isn't lost forever—at least he is not dead—but instead has a wife and child, Kirk realizes he must bury his love for Spock forever.
