Overview of Spock
As the Autobots and Decepticons went head to head, Spock and the other humans were beamed aboard by Kirk, who transformed the Autobot ship into the mighty “Fortress Tiberius” to deal with the Decepticon Trypticon.As the Decepticons regrouped to lay waste to the mining colony, Spock and his two shipmates ineffectually fought back against the Decepticons as they attempted to evacuate the miners.Before Starscream could execute Prime, however, Kirk and the other Autobots arrived to save the day—with Kirk piloting Fortress Maximus, the Autobot’s alternate mode reshaped into a copy of the Enterprise.It soon became clear that the four heroes could not overpower the Decepticon force, forcing Spock to take the only logical action and surrender on the condition that the Federation miners go free—much to the amusement of the Klingon Kuri, whose forces had formed an alliance with the Decepticons.Prime’s Directive, Part Three
In 1968 — the year Clark made contact with Belafonte, and the same year the Star Trek episode “Plato’s Stepchildren” caused much consternation for network executives who feared backlash against the interracial kiss between Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Uhura — a young girl wrote a letter to Spock, care of FaVE magazine.In the letter, she makes the connection between Spock’s fictional identity and her own very real situation:
Although Dr.calm, logical, and stoic.His level-headedness makes him an ideal leader and support to his passionate friends, but Kirk and McCoy’s emotional tendencies often put them at odds with the cooler-headed Spock.In fact, this is also similar to the internal struggle Spock feels in reconciling his human and Vulcan heritage.McCoy would say Spock doesn’t have a personality and is cold and distant, Spock has a deep capacity for compassion through his ability to mind-meld.Mind-melding is a Vulcan power that allows Spock to share thoughts and memories with others.Needless to say, he’s a complicated man.Personality…
11 HE NEVER MIND-MELDED WITH HIS FATHER?
To say Spock and his father Sarek had a poor relationship would be an understatement.The two fell out when Spock turned down the Vulcan Science Academy to join Starfleet and didn’t speak for almost 30 years.In their infrequent meet-ups during the original series, they slowly mended their relationship, but never achieved the full father-son bond they had in Spock’s childhood.It was only decades later on Sarek’s deathbed that Jean-Luc Piccard found the perfect solution.
13 WHY DOESN’T HE KEEP TRACK OF HIS PON FARR CYCLE?
The Vulcan Pon Farr cycle is considered one of the most beloved parts of Star Trek lore.Every seven years, Vulcan males succumb to mind-bending emotional rages that must be subsided either through mating or ritual combat within a certain time frame or else die from the chemical dysphoria in their brains.
16 HE PUT HIS SOUL IN MCCOY INSTEAD OF KIRK?
The death of Spock in Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan is one of the most unironically touching moments in the entire franchise.As Spock sacrifices himself to save his friends, he waxes poetic about utilitarianism one last time before succumbing to the poison he’d exposed himself to and dies right in front of Kirk, just missing the epic “KHAN!” shout.
18 HE CAN MIND-MELD WITH COMPUTERS?
The Vulcan mind meld is one of the most versatile and helpful tools in their bag of assorted alien tricks.
22 WHY WAS HE PASSED UP FOR A PROMOTION TO CAPTAIN?
This isn’t so much a weird thing about Spock as much as the circumstances surrounding him.At the beginning of the original Star Trek series, it is briefly stated that Spock had been serving as chief science officer on the U.S.S.Enterprise for over 11 years under the command of then-Captain Christopher Pike.Pike is promoted in the pilot episode, reaching the rank of Admiral and leaving the captain’s chair on the bridge of the Enterprise up for grabs.
23 HAS A PICTURE OF THE OG ENTERPRISE CREW ON HIM?
The brief but tasteful tribute to the late Leonard Nemoy in Star Trek Beyond was a beautiful homage to the man who first brought Spock to life.As the young Spock pulled an electronic picture of the original Enterprise crew from the effects of Spock Prime, the camera panned across the image and ensured that there would be nary a dry eye in the theater.But hang on a second, those items came from the original Star Trek universe of which the reboot films are a tangent.
4 WHY DOESN’T HE TEACH EVERYONE THE VULCAN NERVE PINCH?
The Vulcan nerve pinch is easily the most effective physical move that can be used in the Star Trek universe.Where others flail wildly and try desperately to grapple with aliens and humans alike, Spock maintains his cool stoicism in combat by simply jabbing someone in their collarbone and putting them to sleep.For a long time, it was considered his signature move, reserved only for elite Vulcan Federation officers.Then Jean-Luc Picard did it.And then Data.

This concept of duality was not invented by Roddenberry.It has been prevalent in man’s way of representing the world in art and culture long before the starship enterprise first took flight.

Okay, how the hell does this recording of Spock even exist?
IRL, we totally understand where Michael’s brief Spock clip comes from.It’s from “Unification II,” and it’s Spock talking to Picard.But, in-universe, why does this holographic recording exist? There’s really only one answer: Picard must have been recording Spock nearly the entire time they were on the mission.The speech Michael Burnham views is (mostly) from the very end of “Unification II,” in which Spock says: “The union of the Vulcan and Romulan people will not be achieved by politics diplomacy will not be achieved by politics or diplomacy — but it will be achieved.” Spock says this to Picard, while Data is watching.So, it feels possible that Data was recording the entire conversation for the purposes of the mission.After all, Picard and Data were on a covert mission for Starfleet, meaning it isn’t insane that they would have recorded it.When Burnham accesses the file, the computer says “coordinates redacted” but also that it’s from the personal files of “Admiral Jean-Luc Picard.” So, Picard is the source, the coordinates were the planet Romulus, and somehow Picard recorded this convo, maybe with Data’s help, or maybe some other way.
What is “SPOCK” exactly?
I cannot see the exact definition of the “SPOCK”.
What is it?
Spock is a testing and specification framework for Java and Groovy applications.What makes it stand out from the crowd is its beautiful and highly expressive specification language.Thanks to its JUnit runner, Spock is compatible with most IDEs, build tools, and continuous integration servers.Spock is inspired from JUnit, RSpec, jMock, Mockito, Groovy, Scala, Vulcans, and other fascinating life forms.
When did the planet Vulcan become Ni’Var?
It’s not exactly clear.We know that Ni’Var left the Federation 100 years prior to 3188, but it seems likely that the integration of Vulcans and Romulans was underway a long time before that happened.Could it have been as early as the 25th century? Sometime after the events of Star Trek: Picard? Maybe.After 2387, we know the Romulans literally don’t have a home, and by 2399 (Picard Season 1) there’s a loose government called The Romulan Free State.That said, several parts of Romulan culture seem more open to peace simply because things aren’t going so great.Could the Romulan emigration to the planet have happened sometime fairly quickly after Picard Season 1? It’s possible! In fact, considering we see the Romulan Qowat Milat order in “Unification III,” it feels possible that Picard Season 2 could show us the beginnings of the planet Vulcan becoming “Ni’Var.” Then again, it’s also possible this whole Ni’Var business didn’t start until several centuries after Picard, too.There are 930 years between Discovery Season 2 and Discovery Season 3.But, that’s still 789 years between Picard and Discovery Season 3.A lot could have happened.
