Why This Must Be Read: This is a lovely story depicting the slow, gradual development of the relationship between Spock and Uhura over the course of Uhura's last semester at Starfleet Academy. Both Spock and Uhura remain entirely themselves throughout the piece, their growing mutual attraction and subsequent transition from friendship to romance is entirely believable, and the conclusion of the story is deeply satisfying. This is a story for anyone who enjoys a slow burn.
