I never ever thought of Kirk as being a father figure to Spock. That's an interesting but unusual interpretation.
It makes sense for Spock to be more emotional than other Vulcans since he is half human.
CommishSleer I love your avatar! Servalan is so awesome.
I wish we could have some baddass villainess in Star Trek who is prepared to use men for her evil purposes and then toss them aside when she's used them all up like Servalan.
Lets hope she's in the new interpretation of Blake's 7.
Really I love all Spocks.
Except maybe that scrawny teenage one in The Search for Spock.
The young boy Spock in ST09 was sooooo cute
