Re: Spock's the best 1st Officer in Starfleet?

Is it, though? Especially in the TOS era, the First Officer position seems to be exclusively the second-in-command. There are no other duties ascribed to it. We saw Riker take care of typical XO duties, but never Spock. Was he even called the executive officer, ever? He was always just the Science Officer who happened to also rank just behind Kirk. Frankly, it seems like Kirk was his own XO.
