Captain’s Log: Stardate 201704.10. Today I am posting a public domain photo and profile of Spock from Where No Man Has Gone Before. Kirk was my childhood hero, and still is, and I am a member of William Shatner’s official fan club, Shatner & Friends. Spock, however, seems to be the most popular character, especially for my female students. Spock’s ethical code is based on stoicism and utilitarianism, the combination of which, according to author Judith Barad, makes him a good second-in-command, but not necessarily a good CO, as demonstrated in The Galileo 7. Live long and prosper.
