It would help if the scripts would give Spock more to do, as he's become exactly what Nimoy wanted to avoid in the later episodes: used primarily for his tricks and catchphrases rather than as a fully formed character. I'm not asking fan actors to do more than they can. Nobody is Leonard Nimoy and I don't expect any non-pro to come close. However, I'm not seeing it in the scripts themselves. Here Spock is just the stoic science officer; there is no friendship and no further depth. I'd love to see a change on the ground level that remind us why Kirk is inconsolable whenever Spock is close to death, or presumed dead or really frigging dead. As it stands now, the "big 3" is the "medium 2."
