There was always a little something "off" and unsettling when Nimoy's Spock went emotional. It reinforced that he was still an alien, and that there was a reason that Vulcan's kept their feelings bottled up. Mark Lenard (and Patrick Stewart channeling his character) also pulled this off.

This is what disappoints me with Laurence Luckinbill's performance as an "emotional Vulcan" in STV...he didn't capture any of that. Take off the ears, you're just playing a human.
Wait, you're comparing the performance of characters who were stoic 99.99 percent of the time and then had some kind of traumatic break---

to a character who long ago decided it was okay to be as emotional as the everyday human?

You totally missed the point.
