Why is Mr. Spock the best sci-fi character in history?
Well, from anybody's perspective, I think a being that witholds all emotion and passion in favour of logic must be the way.
Yet Spock is not just partly human and partly vulcan. He is also genetically related to the explosively emotional Romulans......a race dedicated to domination based on sheer expression, be that love or hatred.
Spock himself is the sum total of all of us.
His preference for the Vulcan way is a message to all of us. Hold your logic in tight and don't let it be overcome.
Faith is cool, but only when tempered by a questioning mind.
Spock is what, I think, we aim to be.
Spock is what we want to be.
