It turns out that Spock has hit that time of the decade where Vulcans need to mate, lest their suddenly raging hormones kill them. Kirk, sympathetic, tries to talk to Starfleet about a quick detour to Vulcan, but his refusal to go into Vulcan reproductive habits (why no one in the Federation didn't know about them until now, what with Vulcans being one of the ''founding members'' of the organization and all, I have no idea) doesn't convince them. [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight Kirk, having made his own assessment of the situation, decides they can do without the Enterprise for a bit and heads to Vulcan anyway.]]

If he can't, the massively elevated levels of adrenaline and other hormones will kill them.him within a week.

But wait! Turns out, Kirk isn't dead! Yes, the substance [=McCoy=] gave him during the battle was actually some AppliedPhlebotinum which allowed Kirk to simulate death. The episode ends with Spock barely catching himself from having a joygasm over Kirk's survival, and Kirk and [=McCoy=] having a good tease over it. Meanwhile, T'Pau covers for Kirk's shenanigans, saving him from another court martial.

* ActOfTrueLove: Kirk sacrifices his career to save Spock. He gets it back, [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt of course]], but he didn't know that that would happen.

* ActOfTrueLove: ActOfTrueLove:
**
Kirk sacrifices his career to save Spock. He gets it back, [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt of course]], but he didn't know that that would happen.
** In return, Spock humiliates himself in front of [[GrandeDame T'Pau]], the woman Kirk referred to as "all of Vulcan wrapped up in one package", by begging her to keep Kirk out of the ''kal-i-fee''. T'Pau throws it back in his face with a few insults about his humanness, and it still isn't enough to stop him. As much as he fears breaking the taboo against emotions in front of his people, he fears more that Kirk will die if he doesn't attempt to save him.



** It's also possible that Kirk could've explained things to Komack in a way that would've gotten him permission to go to Vulcan without letting too much slip. Kirk even had his Chief Medical Officer's statement that Spock would die if he didn't return to Vulcan, and didn't bother to mention it to the Admiral.

We start off with [=McCoy=] catching Kirk on his rounds to talk about how un-Vulcanlike Spock's been, for the past couple of days. Kirk at first dismisses [=McCoy=]'s worries as being nothing...until another ill-fated attempt by Nurse Chapel to gain his eye causes Spock to throw a temper tantrum, catching everyone by surprise. Unfortunately, the green-blooded primadonna refuses to let in on what's causing his behavior, only demanding leave on his home planet.

* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: For all their sparring, [=McCoy=] proves that he and Spock truly are VitriolicBestBuds; when Spock asks him to accompany him to the ''pon farr'', [=McCoy=] simply states he would be honored, without any attendant snark.
