Agreed. ''Kirk'' doesn't act like Kirk all the time, but especially ''Spock'' does not act like SPOCK! All 4 of the actors that have played Spock up to now need to realize that Leonard Nimoy did not play Spock as an impassive nearly-robotic alien character.

In Galileo 7 you often can hear the confusion and frustration in his voice as he struggles to keep his crew alive and from mutineeing on him. In his many verbal sparrings with McCoy you can often see the twinkle in his eyes and the slight smile at the corner of his mouth.

And true that Spock in both web-series seems to have become Mr Exposition or Mr information-giver. I miss the days when Spock would go rogue and challenge the gathered humans around him and point out their/our biases-failings-quirks.

Sometimes I get the impression Spock's portrayal in the first 2/3rds of Star Trek: the Motion Picture is the template the actors are following...

2 new Enterprise-based web-isodes are due to premiere within the next couple of weeks. Hopefully one of them will show either Kirk & Spock the true way we all remember them finally...
