Title: Missing Scenes from TOS
Episode #32: Friday's Child
Summary: What happened during "Friday's Child" that Paramount
didn't want the fans to see.
Disclaimer: I don't own TOS. I never have, and I never will.
Star Trek and all of its relations are property of Paramount and Viacom. I only own this story. Anybody who has a problem
with the thought of men in homosexual relationship with each other, please stay away. Flames and feedback are welcome.
Author's Notes: This is all Loony's fault. I hadn't planned
on writing this. I didn't even want to at first, but due to fast-talking and the fact she is responsible for my present state
of mind, well, insanity, I'm writing this. I want to thank her for at least convincing me to actually do something, instead
of doing projects on and off. Technically, this is number 32 in the series that will take place, which has been codenamed
"The TOS Missing Scenes Series." Brilliant, no? This takes place during the episode "Friday's Child" for all confused. Thanks
to Stef for Betaing for me. You're great!

Spock: Leonard, I
do not believe I like the fact that you were stationed here for months at a time.
McCoy: (Looking up
at Spock) Worried, Spock?
McCoy: It was a long
time ago, Spock. I'm fine, and if it makes you feel any better, you'll be here to protect me this time.
Spock: (Sitting down
next to McCoy on the bed) That does little to ease my worries, Leonard.
McCoy: (Taking Spock's
hand in his) Everything's going to be fine, Spock. They may seem a bit different, but they're good people. Nothing's going
to happen. Trust me.
Spock: I do, Leonard.
(Stroking McCoy's fingers with his own) Come now, the Captain expects us in the transporter room.

where a sleeping Eleen lays and Kirk is outside, keeping watch. McCoy sits on a rock, Spock against a wall.)
McCoy: Spock, listen
to me, will you?
with a communicator, ignoring McCoy) I am busy at the moment, Doctor.
McCoy: I don't care
how damned busy you are. Stop and listen for a minute!
Spock: (Looks at
McCoy) What is it, Doctor?
McCoy: Spock, please.
I dont' want you to be mad. She was just touching my hand, that's all.
Spock: That is all,
Doctor? Merely touching hands? You of all humans are aware that one cannot "just touch hands."
McCoy: Spock, I'm
sorry, I do mean that. But I want you to know something else, too, humans, and most other cultures of the galaxy, save Vulcans,
don't find casual touching so abhorrent. Just think about that.
for a long moment) You are aware, Leonard, that you will be sleeping alone for the next three nights?
Yeah, I know.

Kirk: (testing his
bow) Everything all right with you and Bones?
Spock: Whatever do
you mean, Captain? Dr. McCoy and I are fine. He is helping Eleen with her labor.
Kirk: (looking incredulous)
I know that, Spock. I mean outside of the mission.
Spock: (looking away
from Kirk) We are fine, Captain.
Kirk: Are you sure,
Spock? You've been acting a little odd since we escaped.
Spock: I am fine.
Dr. McCoy has merely been concentrating on his patient.
Kirk: You sound jealous,
Spock: (raising his

Hall, Spock, Kirk, and McCoy sit at a table, talking)
Kirk: Bones, explain
this once more. Why did Eleen say it was "our" child to you?
Spock: (Fixing McCoy
with a piercing gaze) Yes, Doctor, do explain.
McCoy: (sighing and
leaning back) We were in the cave, and I was trying to make her want it. She'd been explaining that kids belong to the men,
and I was getting a little agitated.
A little agitated, Doctor?
McCoy: All right,
I was pretty upset. While I was trying to make her admit it was hers, she got the idea in her head I was taking claim to it.
I couldn't get her to stop saying that, afterwards. It's not like it's actually mine, or I even want it. (Looking at Spock)
Catch my drift?
Kirk: Well, let's
just hope she doesn't expect you to keep him. That could be a messy political situation. And I don't know about the two of
you, but I've had enough of Capella IV to last a lifetime.
Spock: Agreed, Captain.
And we will be leaving orbit within the hour.
Kirk: Thank goodness
for small miracles Spock. Right now, I have to check in with engineering. I'll see you both on the bridge later. (He rises
Spock: There is nothing
else to the story, Doctor?
McCoy: (Looking into
Spock's eyes) No, Spock. I mean it; that's all that happened.
Spock: (Slowly nodding)
I believe you, Leonard.
McCoy: Are you mad?
Spock: I am...not
McCoy: I did say
I was sorry. And I meant it. And if you want, I'll leave you alone for the next two days.
for a moment before speaking) That will not be necessary. I realize it was all a misunderstanding, and that you regret what
occurred. I also know that you will not do this (Reaching out to stroke McCoy's hand) again, with anybody else.
McCoy: (Closing his
eyes) I won't, Spock. I promise. I want nothing more to do with Leonard James Akaar or his mother.
Spock: (Raising his eyebrow)
Indeed? That is another thing I wish to speak to you about...
