I like the story. I also like that u mentioned Spock being bullied and harassed at the academy. I think some teachers woiuld see him being Vulcan as a threat. U wrote a realistic story.

wow, I have read all your pre-Kirk and early-Kirk Spock stories, and they are amazing. The characterization is so well done, I can really feel how hard it must have been for Spock after 11 years under Pike. It makes absolute sense, I love it. Are you going to write any more of those? I know you covered the first Kirk-Spock-meeting in the Roses-Story, but one can always hope. Personally I do wonder how these two unlikely friends got along in the very beginning. And Mitchell ... so many possiblities ;)

That was a pretty amazing oneshot. You are one of the best fan fiction writers I have ever encountered. I love your portrayl of Pike and the build-up created with Spock's computer abilities and Commodore Ellingsly's opinion's. Pike's discussion with Spock was wonderful, very well done, and quite enjoyably characterized. I loved this.

I can totally see this as having happened to Spock early on in his career. Darn Starfleet and their prejudices...thank goodness for Pike! Although I'm not terribly fond of Pike-era fics, this was fantastic. I loved how you wrote his character and had him keep an eye out for Spock. And that bit when Spock was translating the computer code directly was genius-I always wondered how he did it in the series! :) Great job!

Prejudice in the 24th century is prejudice just the same. I found myself being infuriated! Thank heavens for Captain Pike! Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! For an excellent story!

Well written, well thought out piece of Star Trek past. Enjoyed that you factored in such things that were off-handly mentioned, such as Spock's being disowned by his clan and the fact that then they tried to strong-arm Starfleet into dismissing him. Love your rendition of Pike and just really enjoyed the story. Thanks

Yes, those Xenophobes who wish to cowtow to the Vulcans... This was pretty dang cool. I always liked the idea of Pike. Better than the image of Archer they forced upon us in the past years. Excellent story.

I just had a v. long, v. trying day - nothing like being surrounded by exasperating people at work to make you want to drown yourself in a v. small bucket - and then I saw this, and it instantly lifted my spirits. I love young Spock - especially when other people see just how special he is - and I have a secret weakness for Pike!era fic, so this hit all my buttons. Very well done - and thank you for cheering me up!

As I have said before this is a wonderful peace. It shows why Spock was so loyal to Captain Pike and it showed how far he came as a person. Nicely done. I am so glad you are writing again. I look forward to seeing more of your works.

This is awesome. I love the glimpse into the Federation's development, into Spock's problems and reactions, and into Pike's command. Keep writing.
