you have some exquisite lines here. My favorite among many:
Once, he dared to reach, trying to touch it. Invisible spiderweb filaments stretched from the spark towards him, and he was desperate to catch them, even one, just on his fingertip. He willed himself to lengthen his arm, his body, his hand, his fingers, to stack every single molecule of himself to extend as far as he could, towards the spark.And you got Jim's anger and frustration very well.
Your compliments humble me, and fill me with joy.

The sad reality is that our planet still does this. The father of my best friend at school was in the force that liberated the first of many concentration camps. He was never normal after that and the family took the toll. Now two halves of the same people fight with planet devastating potential. When do you choose to breach the PD when not.
An advisory position is so...empty, useless, powerless.
And Kirk already feels that way with Spock.
