Summary[edit | edit source]

Sonnet from the Vulcan: Omicron Ceti Three is a poem written by Shirley Meech. It was originally published in Star Trek: The New Voyages, a collection of short stories published by Bantam Books in 1976.

The poem is written in the first person from the viewpoint of Mr. Spock during or shortly after TOS episode: "This Side of Paradise", in which Spock encountered Leila Kalomi, a woman he had known many years before on Earth. Leila had fallen in love with him, but Spock did not return her love.

The poem is meant to reveal that perhaps Spock did have deep feelings for Leila, but was unable to express them due to being betrothed to a Vulcan woman, T'Pring.

The last line of the poem goes: "You told me that you loved me and you cried. I said I had no feelings. And I lied."
