Now a diplomat for the United Federation of Planets, Spock agrees to a bonding with Saavik, his former protégé and an accomplished Starfleet officer in her own right. More than a betrothal but less than a wedding, the sacred Vulcan rite is attended by both Spock’s father, Sarek, and a nervous young Starfleet officer named Jean-Luc Picard.

Plans for the consummation of the pair’s union are thrown off course when Spock receives a top-secret communication that lures him into the heart of the Romulan Empire. Enmeshed in the treacherous political intrigues of the Romulan capital, undone by a fire that grows ever hotter within his blood, Spock must use all his logic and experience to survive a crisis that will ultimately determine the fate of empires!

Written by Josepha Sherman & Susan Shwartz


Guest Cast:


Commander Saavik and Ambassador Spock, son of Sarek, were married on the second day of the month of Sharveen at sacred wedding grounds belonging to the family of the groom. T’Pau of Vulcan, former leader of the planet, presided over the ceremony.

The bride, Commander Saavik, is a Starfleet officer in good standing, late of the original Starship Enterprise, but most recently assigned as first officer aboard the U.S.S. Armstrong.

The groom, Ambassador Spock, is also formerly of the first Starship Enterprise, but is currently an ambassador-at-large representing Federation interests throughout the galaxy.

The couple met while the bride was a student at Starfleet Academy and the groom was assigned there as an instructor.

Ambassador Sarek of Vulcan, father of the groom, was in attendance. Amanda, mother of the groom, is deceased, as are the parents of the bride.

The bride wore embroidered silver robes that have been in the groom’s family over a thousand years.

Among the guests were Dr. Leonard McCoy, an admiral in Starfleet, Lieutenant Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Stargazer, Captain Truman Howes of the U.S.S. Armstrong, and many members of the Armstrong crew.
