This is in answer to Ambient's challenge for a Sarek/Bones bonding that leads to a Kirk/Spock get together.
The story begins with an STXI twist on the TOS classic, Journey to Babel. Sarek and his party have arrived on the ship, but Bones questions their health after Starfleet send special instructions for callibrating their medical tricorders to account for (read: overlook) certain known abnormalities as a result of the trauma from losing an entire planet of their people.
Called upon by his people, just after having announced his retirement, to represent the Vulcan government in the talks concerning Coridan induction to the Federation, what happens when Bones' suspisions are correct and Sarek begins to manifest physical symptoms of his well-hid mental duress.
Confusion, questions of sexuality, intensely uncomfortable situations and several requests for brain bleach from the ship's replicator for the not quite yet friends Kirk and Spock.
Note: I am aware that another answer to this challenge is being authored by someone else, but the story is in German (not French as I had originally thought as was pointed out to me lol), which I don't read so if there ARE any repeated themes, it's purely unintentional as I have not the patience to copy and paste it into a translator. Normally, I wouldn't answer a challenge that's already had one submission, but I've had two people who are good friends of mine ask me to please answer this challenge and so I write this for them--you both know who you are.
