Re: Amok Time doesn't make sense.
No she doesn't. She asked Spock what he thought he was doing bringing outworlders to one of their private ceremonies. She's there to see the rules of the ceremony are followed, not to be a tour guide. Kirk didn't ask and it's doubtful T'Pau would have answered as the ceremony is not for outworlders. Asking would have been seen as cowardice, certainly as unwillingness to follow the ceremonial behavior which Spock had promised they would do. Kirk also is unwilling to back down in front of T'Pau. Her importance in the Federation as 'all of Vulcan in one package' sets Kirk's sense of duty into overdrive. Backing down in front of her would be an embarrassment for him, for Spock, and for Starfleet as one of their captains.
