Unexpected Friends

By Lissy0494

Drama / Adventure

Prologue

"Bye, bye mama. Bye, bye baba." Nyota Uhura said as she saw her parents for the last time. 

The deaths of her parents was something little Nyota did not understand yet at the age of four. Her parents, Makini and her husband Busara Uhura were Starfleet personnel who died in the Kelvin. 

As a precaution, Makini had kept both hers and her husband's will up to date. On their last conversation over of their will Makini and Busura had agreed on leave their daughter with one of their closest, most trusted friend and godmother to their daughter.

 Amanda Grayson. 

Amanda Grayson and Makini Uhura have been friends ever since they were babies in dippers. Growing up they talked about being wives and mothers and always finding a way to be like sisters. Once Amanda married the Vulcan Ambassador to Earth and moved to Vulcan Amanda and Makini kept close contact and attended eachothers weddings.

When Amanda and Sarek found out that they were in charge of their goddaughter due the Kelvin 'incident' Amanda at once said;

"We will be taking care of the child," Amanda knew that if anything happened to her or her husband Makini would have done the same for them.

"Amanda you have to think this through are you certain you want to take care of the child?" Sarek asked a little more than surprised for the decision his wife was making.

"We are already have a six year old son that is in need of both his parents and bringing another child into our household is out of the question." Sarek said not wanting to have a human child in his home.

Sarek never really understood the relationship between his wife and Makini (and he probably never will) and whatever promises they made to each other to him were as alien and illogical as his son's emotional outbursts.

"It is not out of the question Sarek, I have been telling you for the as long as we have been married that Makini and I were best friends almost close to being sisters and we would have never trusted our children with anyone else other than each other." Amanda argued. Amanda knew Sarek doesn't want the presence of a human child in his home for the reason that the child's behavior will increase their son's emotional outbursts and other illogical human behavior.

"Alright Amanda, we will care for the child. I havee to ask though, is this child the same one that we saw in Africa a few weeks ago?" he asked incredulously.

"Yes she is that child and her name is Nyota." Amanda said finally winning the argument with her husband. Amanda knew that Sarek had a weak spot for their goddaughter (he knew it too) he just wasn't going to admit that he has one. 

This fact confirmed her suspicions that he treated her like she was his own daughter.

"When are we going to pick her up?" Sarek asked his wife hiding the unexpected wave of happiness and relief that came with their god daughter.

Once Nyota was brought back to Vulcan she spent her years going to the same schools that every other Vulcan attended. She never failed at melting her godfather's heart. One of her first friends in the school was a young boy named Vorik who was taken aback from the way she and eventually Spock were being treated. Vorik was also taken aback by how she was able to surpass every test known to Vulcan history and was able to surpass the expected score. 

While growing up Nyota, Spock, and Vorik became an inseparable group. What seemed to begin the shift in their friendship was the growing attraction Vorik held for Nyota. His growing fondness for her was not missed by anyone, especially Spock.

However, it was completely clear that Vorik was more interested in starting a relationship with Nyota because he was there more and was the one that found himself always by her side. As Nyota grew he noticed the beauty that came with this highly intelligent, warm, comforting, even loving woman. When it came time for Nyota to go to Earth to a Terran college Spock estranged himself from her and avoided her. Even went as far as getting bonded to another without informing anyone of the family.

Vorik was there when her tears fell.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel.

Dave Baxter: Generally, a good story. The plot was a bit predictable but not overly so. The first bit might have been better if it instead focused on how the main character becomes a host and not with how humans first interact with the aliens. This might allow more recognition of the various transitions sh...
