Academy Chess Club Challenge by twilightfire

This idea is based on a flier posted on my college campus about a chess club informational meeting labeled in big, bold letters: "Wanna Learn Mating Tactics?"

Jim, being Jim, goes to the informational meeting after seeing a similar flier for chess club. Altogether uninterested in playing (or maybe already knowing how to play) chess, he stays for one reason and one reason only: the intriguing half-Vulcan faculty member (or upperclassman, depending on the verse) who was reluctantly dragged into being a co-sponsor/leader of the club.

I think this has the potential to be a pretty long fic, and I'd write it if I A) had the time and B) knew where it would be going.

And yes, I do see this as being an Academy!fic, although it could probably fit if it was set on the Enterprise shortly after the movie in the Reboot!verse.

Crew morale is down on the Enterprise. The captain is sick, suffering from the mind meld on Delta Vega. Unbeknownst to McCoy, the common factor is actually their own Spock, not Spock Prime. McCoy's solution to the first problem (planning an interservice chess tournament) begins to solve both problems.

Then all hell breaks loose.

Fortunately Spock has taught Kirk how to play chess...
