Biography of Lt. Saavik
STARFLEET IDENTIFILES 110-487SA
BORN: Hellguard, date unknown
FAMILY: Sarek (adopted father); Amanda Grayson (adopted mother); Spock (step-
brother). Natural Parents/Relatives unknown, yet known that one was
Vulcan, the other Romulan.
Not much is known about the infancy and childhood of the girl Saavik, one
of several children abandoned on her homeworld. Hellguard was originally
known as T'Vorus, a Vulcan colony world in the Triangle. It was razed by a
Romulan "renegade" force and settled as a Romulan colony, its occupants en-
slaved. When the colony was deemed twelve years later as "unsuccessful" the
Romulan contingent left, leaving only children and the bodies of dead Vulcan
citizens. Saavik was one of these children.
In early 2209, the planet was finally visited by a scouting expedition from
the Vulcan Academy of Sciences, under the command of Spock, on temporary de-
tachment from Starfleet following the Enterprise's journey back in time to
the 1960's (classified SD/3121.5). Saavik, little more than a dirty scamp,
jumped Spock in the remains of the city but was subdued. Spock took careful
notice of the girl, whose vital signs were very low from malnutrition, and
nursed (if a Vulcan can nurse) her back to health. The other children were
also gathered and the party left for Vulcan. During the flight, Spock taught
Saavik the Vulcan language and proper etiquette. On arrival, the Vulcan Immi-
gration Department branded her with the name T'Saavik, and Spock presented her
to his parents, who later adopted her. She lived with Sarek and Amanda until
following in her step-brother's footsteps: entering Starfleet Academy. Sarek
was not upset by her course of action because he realized failure to comply
would only mean loss of contact with his "daughter".
Saavik enrolled in Starfleet Academy. She was the center of much contro-
versy and attention because of her duel Romulan/Vulcan parentage, and the butt
of many anti-Romulan jokes. Nevertheless, she excelled in her studies and
graduated at the top of her class, with high honors. With the rank of Lieu-
tenant now attributed her, she only had to pass her cadet cruise. Unfortu-
nately, this cruise escalated into the Genesis Incident and the Battle of the
Mutara Nebula with the renegade Khan. During the incident, she lost a friend
she had acquired, Peter Preston, nephew of Montgomery Scott. When the battle
was completed, and the ENTERPRISE arrived at Regula One, she transferred to
the USS GRISSOM with Dr. David Marcus. At the planet Genesis, the GRISSOM
was destroyed, Marcus was killed and the body of Mr. Spock was discovered
alive (classified SD/8401.4). She returned to Vulcan with the ENTERPRISE crew
members. However, she did not depart with them in the Klingon Bird Of Prey
when it departed for Earth three months later during the Probe Incident. In-
stead, she remained on Vulcan due to what can only be described as an "event",
the circumstances of which are not clear. She resides now at her adopted
parents' house in ShiKahr, Vulcan.
