The Home Ground is a Kirk/Spock story by Alice West.

It was published in the print zine T'hy'la #7.


"Kirk struggles with his despair over Spockʼs inablilty to at first remember, and then feel, the love they knew before Spockʼs death."

Reactions and Reviews

The story opens directly after Spock's fal-tor-pan as the Bounty is on Vulcan, ready to leave. Spock is watching from the cliff above, which is one of my favorite intimate moments. Nice inner dialogue of Kirk's as he wonders if Spock will remember they'd been lovers. There was one brief mention of Kirk feeling jealous because McCoy held Spock's katra and Kirk didn't. I thought this an excellent insightful comment and I wished it had been explored more fully.

Nicely integrated actual movie scenes with the story.

The biggest problem was all "telling" and not "showing" as they leave Vulcan, find the probe and travel back in time for the whales. [1]
