Diaries of an Enterprise Doctor
I can't believe I'm talking to a machine...
Today was my first day as CMO onboard the
an interesting experience. The
man who greeted me, Captain Kirk, was a nice man,
womanizing type, but still a good
man. The Science officer however... Well, Spock is an emotionless stick in the mud. Sickbay
The staff was courteous and professional. I'm worried about my head nurse however. Christine Chapel is hopelessly
in love with Mr. Spock.
Today was as interesting as the day before. Mr. Spock came in with a small cut on his
hand and I got a better look at him. I think I'm beginning to see what my head nurse sees in him.
Didn't see Spock at all today, I’d
like to find out what makes him tick. What
makes him so, for lack of a better term, stick-like?
Spock was in sickbay as a patient again. This time his injury was far more serious. He has a nasty concussion as far as I can tell with his
blasted anatomy. I don't know why I am so curious about him.
I released Spock from sickbay today and
was he ever eager to leave. But when
he left I felt a sense of loss. I can't explain it, but it was still there.
Dear God what is wrong with me? I know that I like men, but why do I like him? Of all men to want he had to be the one I wanted. He could
never want me. He's a Vulcan, hopelessly and eternally logical. Relationships with other men would make no sense to him.
My head nurse
would have a better chance than I and he's
rejected her more times than she cares to count.
It’s getting worse. I've fallen hopelessly for him. I have to do something about this. There is a nice looking girl
I think I'll try for. Maybe she can
take my mind off of Spock,
She went out with me, but she could tell
something was wrong. I wasn't that
interested in her and responded with little speech and was
daydreaming most of the time.
Oh God, not this. A week long away mission with Spock? Please not this. This planet has a culture that is so sexually
free that any adult can choose who they want to be with, male or female. Oh well, I have to do what I have to do. Maybe I'll put in for a transfer when we get back.
We're back from the away mission. The mission wasn't as bad as I expected. I was able to talk with Spock, ask about his family and such. However night time was the worst time. I was assigned to a room with him. Each night, during the middle of the night, I had to get up. I needed a very cold shower. Somehow, I think Spock
knew something was wrong and after the third night slept on the couch in our room. How did
he know that he was the problem, if he
knew? I've heard Vulcans are touch-telepaths,
could I have accidentally told him? I hope not.
The happiest day of my life? I hope so. Spock came to visit me in my quarters this evening. He told me he knew what I was going
through during the away mission. He
told me he wasn't offended. He also told me that while same-sex relationships are not common on his home planet,
they are allowed and are not looked down
upon. Maybe that was his way of saying
he liked me? I don't know yet.
The fist date! I was right last night! He does at least have some interest in me! We spent the entire evening in
my quarters talking about ourselves, our families and home. At the very end, he kissed me, not as humans do, but he showed
me how Vulcans kiss. They take the
first two fingers of the right hand and
touch them together. Supposedly it’s
like a kiss because they are touch-telepaths. He said that one day soon that we might kiss as humans do. Well,
here's to a long and happy relationship with him!
