[Spock notices an elder Vulcan walking in the docking bay]
Spock: Father...
Spock Prime: [turns around to face him] I am not our father. There are so few Vulcans left. We cannot afford to ignore each other.
Spock: [gets closer] Then why did you send Kirk aboard, when you alone could have explained the truth?
Spock Prime: Because you needed each other. I could not deprive you of the revelation of all that you could accomplish together, of a friendship that will define you both in ways you cannot yet realize.
Spock: How did you persuade him to keep your secret?
Spock Prime: He inferred that universe-ending paradoxes would ensue should he break his promise...
Spock: You lied?
Spock Prime: Ah... I - I implied.
Spock: A gamble.
Spock Prime: An act of faith. One I hope that you will repeat in your future in Starfleet.
Spock: In the face of extinction, it is only logical that I resign my Starfleet commission and help rebuild our race...
Spock Prime: And yet, you can be in two places at once. I urge you to remain in Starfleet. I have already located a suitable planet in which to establish a Vulcan colony. Spock, in this case, do yourself a favor: Put aside logic. Do what feels right. [turns to leave] Since my customary farewell would appear oddly self-serving, I shall simply say... [shows Vulcan hand salute] Good luck.
