In The Zone by PaintedBird Rated: All Audiences starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 150]
Summary:

In this A/U, there is no United Federation of Planets. Starfleet is an Earth protection agency, and the only aliens unfortunate enough to have met Earthers were a small group of Vulcans fleeing war-ravaged Vulcan to follow the beliefs of Surak in peace.  Shot down and herded onto a marginal piece of Earth, the Vulcans have barely managed to survive their Terran experience, and there appears to be only a limited future for young Spock.  Life does not hold much more for Jim Kirk who is drifting through life, aimless and purposeless.  Is it posiblee for two such different beings to find their true calling and make a difference?  If their love is meant to be, can they find one another?
