"So now you're all completely up to speed," Kirk concluded the briefing. All of the bridge crew (Plus Bones

and Scotty) stood up, moving toward the exit at a leisurely pace.

"Spock, a moment?"

"Yes Captain?" The Vulcan looked up from his records of the session. Why the doctor had to make illogical comments at every opportunity...

Kirk led Spock to a corner. "I... Spock... I..." He cleared his throat.

"Are you well, Captain?" Spock raised one eyebrow in concern.

"Perfectly fine, Spock. Listen... I... Iloveyou and... Iwasjust wondering if maybe... you would consider a romantic relationship with me?"

Spock took a half a step away, mentally reviewing the past three years in his mind. Oh. "Captain, I do not consider that a logical course of action. Your career is often formost in your mind."

"YOU are always formost in my mind."

Spock continued as though uninterrupted. "And while I share your feelings, I do not wish to become involved in a relationship such as those you have had in the past. Also, I am unable to provide the public confirmation you seem to require. Therefor, it is logical that we do not act upon these emotions." Spock turned to leave.

Kirk's heart had lept at Spock's 'I share your feelings' and he subsequently took the biggest chance he ever had. Reaching out and snagging his first officer around the waist, James T. Kirk began to sing.

"If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try
Take a chance on me."

Kirk paused for breath.

"(That's all I ask of you honey)" Uhura helpfully supplied. She and the shock-frozen CMO were the only people left in the room besides a blushing Spock, and a (luckily not pause) singing Kirk, everyone else having fled six lines ago.

"Take a chance on me
We can go dancing, we can go walking, as long as we're together
Listen to some music, maybe just talking, get to know you better

'Cos you know I've got
So much that I wanna do, when I dream I'm alone with you
It's magic
You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can't let go

If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best and it ain't no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try
Take a chance on me."

"(Come on, give me a break will you?)" Uhura watched as Spock loosened up the tiniest bit, blush receding.

"Take a chance on me
Oh you can take your time baby, I'm in no hurry, know I'm gonna get you
You don't wanna hurt me, baby don't worry, I ain't gonna let you
Let me tell you now
My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
It's magic
You say that I waste my time but I can't get you off my mind
No I can't let go." Kirk inched closer to Spock, sliding his arms up the Vulcan's back.

"'Cos I love you so
If you change your mind, I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you've got no place to go, if you're feeling down
If you're all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me."

"(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)" Uhura was doing a superb job of not giggling.

"Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can't you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on m.e"

"(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)" Noting that Spock looked... intense. He also seemed to have lost all consideration for the world outside Kirk's eyes.

"Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me." Kirk held the last note for a second. Until Spock kissed him passionately.

"Holy Shit! I'm outta here!" McCoy had finally unfrozen. He lept out the door in the style of a Russian dancer. Uhura followed at a less terrified pace.

"I thought that this was illogical?" Kirk teased a moment later.

"Screw logic," was, VERY remarkably, Spock's response.

"Gladly."
