Amanda Grayson


Universe : Kelvin Timeline
Name : Amanda Grayson1
Species : Humans

A Human woman, Amanda Grayson was the wife of Sarek, the Vulcan Ambassador to Earth, and the mother of his son, Spock. Amanda loved and supported Spock in everything he did in life, reassuring him that no matter what path he took he would always have a proud mother. In turn, though Vulcan culture repressed Spock from expressing his love for his mother he did care deeply for her. Although Spock remained stoic through dozens of attempts by other Vulcan children to taunt him as a child, insults directed towards Amanda provoked a violent response from him. Even as an adolescent Spock would refuse membership of the Vulcan science academy when the director referred to Amanda as a "disadvantage" to him.1

When Nero destroyed Vulcan with a black hole, Spock attempted to rescue her along with his father and the Vulcan elders. Although he got most of the group to safety Amanda was killed when the ground beneath her collapsed, breaking the transporter lock on her.1

Sarek would state that marrying Amanda had been a logical decision since his role as Ambassador involved learning all he could of Humans. In the aftermath of her death, however, he would confess to Spock that he had married her because he loved her. James Kirk would later use Amanda's death to provoke Spock into a rage in order to demonstrate that he was too emotionally compromised to continue in command of the Enterprise.1
