My wife T'Vit is required to tend to T'Sorvik for me while I meet with the Admiralty, as her other parent Evil Storvik has gotten intoxicated with Doctor(s) Khan. "You don't know whud ish like bein' shtuck on dat prissy Feddie Vulcan!" he slurred. I assured him that I did – after all, he was there to take my place so that I could leave, an arrangement to which he had originally agreed in order to ensure the security of our daughter … and to assist the Federation in defending against its counterparts from his "mirror" universe (in which a significant element of self-preservation was involved).
T'Vit, who has grown to understand me more than any other, knew that I was considering taking Evil Storvik and T'Sorvik with me, to "rescue" them from the interference in their lives and her upbringing which would occur on Vulcan. "You never consider into 'the long term'," T'Vit pointed out to me. "If you flee with them on the USS Murgatroid, Starfleet will simply pursue. They will be declared fugitives, and you will be punished. From past experience, you ought to be able to calculate the low probability of evading Starfleet Command for more than a limited duration."
"This is the best chance we have to take them away," I replied. "We are still working on the next step in the plan, which is 'staying away'. However, if we wait until our plans are complete, covering every contingency, before we act; then the opportunity will be lost and we shall never accomplish our goal. It may be that, once we get away from Deep Space Nine, we will also have to leave the Murgatroid."
"You shall not leave without me," T'Vit stated, ending the conversation.
