Re: A scene that I don't understand

He isn't just trying to get the Kirk/Spock friendship back on track, he's trying to get Kirk in command of the Enterprise to defeat Nero.

There have been some times in TOS where Spock mentions to not interfere with the past timeframe they're in, lest they change the course of history.

He could just as well have watched Vulcan explode and go to the Starfleet outpost, not tell Scotty who he is and let Kirk come in from the pod, not doing anything but live the rest of his days there.

But, he decided to tell Kirk how to get command of the ship, and gave Scotty calculations on how to get to the Enterprise from Delta Vega instead.
