Kirk: Was there any notation of the death of Ambassador Sarek's son?
ALEEK: Yes. The boy is recorded as dying during the maturity test.
SPOCK: The kahs-wan, a survival test traditional for young males.
ALEEK: The date was...
Spock: The 20th day of Tasmeen.
THELIN: How do you know this?
SPOCK: That was the day my cousin saved my life in the desert when I was attacked by a wild animal.
KIRK: This cousin, what was his name?
SPOCK: I do not recall clearly. I was very young. He called himself Selek. He was visiting us, but I never saw him after that
KIRK: Spock, did Selek look like you do now?
SPOCK: I believe so, Captain. And I know what you're thinking. It was I who saved myself that other time.
KIRK: But this time, you were in Orion's past with us when the historians had the time vortex replay Vulcan history. You couldn't be in two places at once, so you died as a boy. Guardian! Did you hear that?
GUARDIAN: I hear all.
KIRK: Is it possible for Spock to return to Vulcan and repair the timeline that has been broken so all is the same as before?
GUARDIAN: It is possible if no other major factor is changed.
SPOCK: I do not remember everything. There is a vague memory from a child's point of view, but the details are not clear.
KIRK: You have to remember, for you and your mother to live.
SPOCK: Yes. I will need a Vulcan desert soft suit and boots, and a small selection of streetwear circa 8877 Vulcan years. The carry bag should be of the same period.
KIRK: You've got it. I'll order the wardrobe section to prepare it now.
THELIN: This change in the timeline will put you in my place, yet I am not aggrieved.
