- Special Abilities: Standard Vulcan mental abilities. He is not forward with these.
- Weaknesses/Disadvantages: Generic for a Vulcan. Diplomatic position means he cannot "shoot his mouth off" without consequences.
- History and Experiences Which have Affected Character Greatly: Savok was the child engendered* when Lt. Saavik, did the logical thing during the regenerated "Spock's" first pon far. Under the influence of Amanda and Sarek she was given extended leave to deal with the pregnancy and resulting child.
The boy was named Savok. Spock, once cognizant of the child, recognized him as his son. As Spock has shown no inclination to marry Savok was considered "duty fulfilled" by the logical Vulcans and they kept stepping. No shame fell on either Spock, who was not himself, or Saavik, who acted to preserve life. It is illogical to shame what Must Be Done. Likewise one does not shame the child for his birth. Surely not a "choice" any being can make.
Savok was raised by his grandparents. Sarek took pains to be more active in the young man's raising, not repeating mistakes he had made with Spock. Spock and Saavik were not totally absent from the child's raising, but due to duties were not as present as parents should be. Both realized that a bonding between the two of them would be a disaster. And have remained colleagues of an agreeable nature.
It was not surprising that Savok chose to serve in the family business, which is politics and diplomacy. Sarek saw to an early and agreeable exposure to the profession.
Savok has risen through the ranks of Vulcan diplomacy, serving first in minor tasks and later in more important positions. He was asked to take the position of Vulcan Councilor to the Federation when he finished a successful term as Vulcan Under-Ambassador to Teller, never an easy post.
- Position: Vulcan's constant position has been that of reason and truth with a strong Gentlebeing overlay. Dr. Leonard McCoy once called them the conscience of the Federation, and in may ways this is true. Savok attempts in his own way to embody these principles. Vulcans favor Starfleet in all it's roles, both in defense and the exploration of knowledge.
This event was originally written into STIII and latter ended up on the cutting room floor. I like the idea so it is back.
