Summary

Presented in a new and more readable format, this is the Surak Award-nominated story of friendship and forgiveness in the face of family loss and conflict. Six months after Star Trek: TMP, Ambassador Sarek requests diversion of the Enterprise to Vulcan and medical aid from Dr. McCoy for his seriously ill wife; Kirk, Spock and McCoy arrive only to find Amanda within days of death. Kirk must help Spock cope with his mother's loss -- and somehow keep it from tearing Spock and Sarek apart before they, bereft of their only real unifying force, tear each other apart... [1]
