FASA Timeline
(FASA Roleplaying Game)

Spock was born on Vulcan on 56 Tasmeen 503[2] (Earth year 2167)[3] to a Vulcan father and a Human mother:[4][5] Ambassador Sarek and his wife, Amanda Grayson.[6][7] Spock's dismissal of his mixed heritage was a point that Captain James T. Kirk teased him about on Stardate 1312.4.[4]

On 20 Tasmeen 8877 on the Vulcan calendar, or 2174 by the Earth calendar, Spock was nearly killed attempting to undergo a personal challenge prior to undertaking the traditional kahs-wan rite the next month. Traveling alone, save for his pet sehlat, I-Chaya, into the foothills of the Llangan Mountains on the edge of Vulcan's Forge, Spock was attacked by a le matya. He survived only due to the intervention of Selek, who was a cousin staying at his family's home in ShirKahr. Unbeknownst to Spock, Selek was actually Spock from the future, who had traveled back in time to prevent his own death, which had resulted in creating an alternate timeline.[7]

In 2196, Spock served as science officer aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 under Captain Christopher Pike. Spock was wounded in an incident with the Kalar on Rigel VII shortly before an encounter with the Talosians on Talos IV, resulting in a slight limp.[8] After serving under Captain Pike for 11 years, command of the Enterprise transferred to James T. Kirk.[18] Spock continued on as science officer, as well as executive officer.[4] On Stardate 1512.2, Spock remarked that Commander Balok of the First Federation starship Fesarius reminded him "in some manner" of his father. When Lieutenant Commander Scott remarked "Heaven help your mother," Spock insisted that she considered herself to be "a very fortunate Earth woman."[5]

Spock, a master chess player, often found that playing against Captain Kirk was a challenge in both strategy and logic.[4] Spock programmed the Enterprise computer to play chess, and when that computer was altered to frame Kirk for murder, its inability to beat him served as an important clue to that fact.[1]
