Genre: Drama, Romance, Action/Adventure
Why This Must Be Read: This is a fantastic AU in which Spock became Captain of the Enterprise at the end of the movie. Not only does it feature a beautiful and touching Spock/Uhura relationship, it also naturally builds on the almost-friendship between Spock and Kirk in a way that doesn't feel forced. If you want to understand Spock as a character, this story is a must-read and makes it clear that Spock and Spock Prime are two very different people.
