Re: Star Trek: Unspoken Truth - Discussion (Spoilers)

Absolutely. It's one of my favorite TOS novels of all time, and one of the very few set during its period. The sequences of Spock (of all people!) effectively trying to be a parent to young Saavik are both hysterically funny and genuinely touching and poignant. Honestly, the depiction of Spock and Saavik's relationship is one of the reasons that I could never quite wrap my head around the idea that Saavik eventually became Spock's wife. Just didn't (and doesn't!) seem right to me.
