Spock as Selek

Selek, son of Sasak and T'Pel (actually Spock in disguise)


Selek, son of T'Pel and Sasak, was a distant cousin of Sarek. In 2237, while journeying to the family shrine to honor the Vulcan gods, Selek visited Sarek's home in Shi'Kahr and accepted Sarek's offer for him to stay with them, to break up his journey. While visiting, Selek's young cousin Spock, prematurely began his kahs-wan across Vulcan's Forge. Selek followed Spock and subsequently saved him from death when he and his pet sehlat, I-Chaya, were attacked in the foothills of the L-langon Mountains by a wild le-matya. (TAS: "Yesteryear")

Background information

In reality, Selek was the identity assumed by Spock when he traveled to his past, through the Guardian of Forever, in order to save himself from otherwise being killed by the le-matya. The names "Selek", "T'Pel" and "Sasak" could possibly be true distant cousins of Sarek's family.

The character of Selek was later echoed by a similar scenario in TNG: "Firstborn" where Alexander Rozhenko traveled back in time to visit himself, posing as a family friend known as K'mtar.
