Keep zombie Spock on the ship until necessary.
Zombie Spock was at Nimoy's request, IIRC, because in the original script (see also the Blish novelization), he's in sick bay the whole time.
At least we know who to blame for that, then. They could have stolen Spock totally and hooked him up to some kind of "brain machine" then. Zombie Spock was awful. I understand Nimoy's need to have screen time, but he didn't do much of anything. Was that time on screen really that fulfilling for him or was he just trying to Stick it To Shatner? This was, I presume, before Roddenberry settled the "who is the star" debate.
