Afterward, Kirk and Spock discuss the new link between them, and Kirk proposes marriage to Spock. Spock warns that Vulcans are {{Asexual}} outside of [[MateOrDie Pon Farr]], which doesn't change Kirk's decision. They speculate that Spock still may have sexual desires, which are repressed along with Spock's other emotions. Kirk and Spock decide they have no choice but to ask [=McCoy=] for help on overcoming Spock's frigidity. [=McCoy=] recommends the [[TitleDrop sensate focus]] technique, which allows two people to ease into touching each other, without having sex at first. After [=McCoy=] leaves, Kirk and Spock try the technique, which works perfectly.

-->'''Kirk:'''I admit, this isn’t exactly how I presumed my life would go, but Spock, if there were one person in this universe I could have as a friend, a brother, a confidant, a colleague, a partner—they would all be you. Every one. Everything that’s important to me in this universe, you’re a part of. I’ve had a taste of what more we could have, joined, and I want that. I want that. I want to stay in that togetherness. And if the only thing that’s keeping us from it is the fact that I didn’t ask for it in advance—well now I’m asking. We’re already bonded, so I can’t ask you that. So I am asking you the one thing I can—for everything and anything that it entails.
** Also:
-->'''Spock:''' When I think of you, I feel something I cannot name. A desire for more. To be nearer. To be a part of more of you, to be everything that you need—but nothing similar to the physical imperatives of the Pon Farr. It is possible that that capacity is within me—along with the other baser passions we have come to master—suppressed long before puberty, before it could be acknowledged. If that is the case, I have no interest in freeing it; the violent abandon of the Pon Farr is not something I wish to explore. Of course you are free to copulate with other persons.\\
'''Kirk:''' I don’t want other persons.\\
The knee-jerk response flew out of his mouth unplanned, but it was the vehemence behind it that shocked him utterly. He heard an anger in his own voice that he had no right to feel. Anger, or was it only the protective harshness that so often covers one’s fears?

[[spoiler:Spock mind melds with the prisoners, and they also say that the Sixers are keeping the Fivers as slaves. Kirk informs Admiral Komack, who refuses to believe it because Spock was just recently [[MateOrDie on the sick roster.]] Kirk and Spock use their link to initiate a three-way mind meld with the Fivers, so that they can give their story to Kirk: that the Sixers have been putting a drug in the grain that the Fivers eat in order to MindControl them.]]

Kirk goes back to the planet in a shuttlecraft [[spoiler:to confirm what the Fiver prisoner has told him, and Klingons attack, and force Kirk to fly them back to the Enterprise so they can capture it. Kirk uses his link with Spock to call for help. They arrange it so the Klingons will be sucked out of the shuttlecraft into space when they open the hatch.]]
