Summary: While on medical leave after his miraculous recovery, Jim is plagued with dreams — dreams of another James T. Kirk, the one from the same alternate reality that the other Spock hails from. At first, Jim’s dreams are dismissed as a psychological symptom of his latest trauma, but when he starts talking about a place called the Nexus, the answer no longer seems so cut-and-dried. But disturbing dreams aren’t the only thing Jim’s struggling with — there’s Starfleet’s concern over his mental stability, the repairs of his beloved ship and the little matter of the fact that his First Officer seems to be intent on ignoring him.
Recommendation: Oh I love this so much, the old Spirk feels, the young Spirk feels. I love the thought of the original two getting a real happy ending, but I love the thought of the new ones getting an even longer happy ending even more.
