Author's Note:I intended to hint at Kirk/Rand as you will tell, but if you don't like the paring and just want to think that they were implying something else in their dialogue, go right ahead. Spock's PADD program

Uhura exited the turbo lift and stepped onto the bridge. Spock was sitting in the captain's chair, studying his PADD. He occasionally tapped it with his sylus, dragging the small, black stick across the screen.

"I knew I would find you here." Uhura stated, walking over to Spock. She stood behind him, and placed her hands on his shoulders.

"What are you doing?" Spock looked up at his mate, and held up his PADD so she could see what he was doing.

"I am reviewing the properties of different chemicals and how they react to different temperatures, matter, and other properties. I have downloaded this most fascinating program that allows you to select different chemicals and see what happens when you put them in for example, fire. It then explains why and how it reacts to it."

"Looks pretty interesting. Are you having fun?"

"If by fun, you mean enjoying this select activity Nyota, then yes, I am having fun."

"Spock, May I ask you a question?"

"Anything, Nyota."

"How long have we been on the ship while the crew has been on Karo T'saro? And how long have we been dating?" Spock looked back up at Uhura, and raised an eyebrow.

"We have been alone on the Enterprise for 2 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, 16 hours, 23 minutes and 3 seconds. We have been dating for 2 weeks, 5 days, 16 hours, 23 minutes and 3 seconds. Might I question why you asked such a question?"

"I'm starting to worry about the rest of the crew I'm worried that they've been captured, or worse! And it makes me feel guilty that we've been up here enjoying ourselves when they're down there suffering!" She tried to be calm, but tears started to pool in her eyes that she couldn't keep away. Seeing her discomfort, Spock set down his PADD, stood up, and held her hands in his. He tried to be as sympathetic as he could, speaking in a slightly softer, lower tone.

"There are approximatly 422crew members down on Karo t'saro, excluding deaths. There would only be an 71.3% probability that they would all be captured or killed, So it is illogical to worry about them."

"I'm sorry, k'diwa. I'll try not to worry." Uhura buried her face into Spock's shoulder, marveling in his warmth. It was calming.

But she felt that she wanted more. To feel his green-tinged skin under her fingers once more. Itching with need, she started to plant soft kisses up his neck and onto his ears. She knew she had rung him in as soon as she heard that intoxicating Vulcan growl of his. He instinctively pushed her backwards into her own console, clamming his mouth onto hers in a deep, passionate kiss. Uhura was sure Captain Kirk had done something like this before. And she knew it was in many women's fantasies. Suddenly, he lifted his mouth and whispered into her ear.

"Nyota. I advise that we stop while we are still able too."Although Spock was defiant, his arousal was evident in his hardly-evident voice and in his body.

"Please, T'hy'la. I know It might be a breach of protocol, but... I want you." She continued to work her fiery magic, making a trail of kisses along his jawline and neck. That Vulcan growl emanated from deep in Spock's throat again. He couldn't stop now. With Starfleet protocols aside, he reached down to the hem of her dress and lifted it up to almost over her head. He kissed her again. Uhura searched for the zipper on Spock's pants and pulled itdown. Lifting up a leg, she used the heel of her boot to push them to his mid-thigh. Without warning a loud whistle emanated from her console. At first, they both didn't recognise it as they were to involved in eacother to care. But as a second whistle came, Uhura finally pushed Spock off of her. She sat upright in her chair as she always did and swiched into professional mode. Reaching underneath the console, she snached up her forgotten earpiecemand answered the call.

"Enterprise! Enterprise, can you hear me?" It was Captain Kirk's voice.

"Enterprise, Lieutenant Uhura." Uhura responded. Her voice was business like, but was quickened and had a concerned undertone.

"Oh, Uhura! Thank god your there. We've got, uh, a lot of people to beam up."

"We'll be right there to beam you up, sir. Please stand by." Uhura glanced over at Spock, who was zipping up his pants. He nodded, and they both ran to the turbo lift and went to the transporter room.

Spock and Uhura ran out of the turbo lift and into engineering. They rushed through the halls and found the transporter room. Once they got in, Spock rushed to the transporter console, pushed a few buttons, and pulled the levers that would transport a maximum of six people back onto the ship. He then stood beside Uhura on the right side of the console.

"Oh Spock, I hope they're ok." She whispered, standing closer to him and wrapping her arms around his. They watched as the transporter worked its magic and beamed up Kirk, McCoy, Sulu, Scotty, Chekov, and Janice. Their clothes were ripped and dirty, and they had multiple scratches on their bodies.

"Everyone! I'm so glad you're alright!" Uhura screamed, still holding onto Spock's arm. "What happened down there!"

"That's a long story, Ny. I'm sure we'll tell you two about it later." Janice reassured her friend.

"Yes, a very long story." Kirk replied, a hint of lust in his voice as he glanced over at Janice. She smiled back at him, eyes sparkling.

"Alright then. Scotty, Go to your station and be ready to beam the rest of the crew up. Make sure they all go to sickbay. Sulu, Chekov, Janice. Go with Bones to sickbay and get your injuries treated. I'll be there in a few minutes." With that, everyone followed the captain's orders and disappeared from the transporter room, save for Scotty who went immediately to his console. No one paid any attention to Spock and Uhura except for Kirk, who stopped to look at them before he exited the room.

"Well, you two. You've been alone together here for over two months now. What the hell did you guys do?" Uhura opened her mouth to speak, but Spock stopped her.

"We played chess together, and on rare occasion had meals in one another's company. Is it not custom for freinds to do such things?"

"I suppose so, Spock. Well, i'm sure that's all you did." Kirk had a sarcastic tone to his voice. "The crew has been through a lot, so I'm planning to stop at seigle II and let everyone have a week of well deserved shore leave. I suppose you two get more break time." He then exited the room, followed by Uhura and Spock.

"Do you think he knows?" Uhura whispered to Spock as they followed Kirk through the halls to the turbo lift.

"We were standing very close to each other, and our arms were wrapped together. Maybe we should be more discreet." Spock answered.

"Yes, I think that would be logical. You do have a rank to keep... Commander." She put one hand behind her back and extended her pointer and index finger out.

"Indeed, Lieutenant." Spock did the same as Uhura and touched his fingers to hers. It felt good to touch her in such way, Spock thought. To touch her in the Vulcan way.
